EEP417 Research Skills Guide: Assessments

In this guide

This guide is designed to give you important information literacy skills, which you will use not only for EEP417, but for all your future research tasks, and even into your future nursing careers.

You will not always need to perform each step in this guide as part of your assessment. Knowing which parts are relevant and which are not is an important skill in itself!

Assessment 2: Reflective essay

Assessment 2 requires you to critically reflect on practices which could support the rights of the children to play. 

For this task, you can use the steps in this guide from the Identify & Find tabs, to help you locate suitable information resources. The examples on these pages do apply to assessment item 4, however, the skills are applicable to any assessment item.

The information on the Evaluate and CRAP test pages will help you evaluate the sources of information you have found to ensure they are of a high quality.

Assessment 3: Ethical Dilemma

Assessment 3 asks you to work through one of the provided ethical dilemmas using the ethical response cycle. 

For this task, you will find all of the sections helpful. I would recommend working through each of the pages in this guide beginning with the Identify tab.

Don't forget to refer to the Find and Evaluate tabs for advice on locating quality resources and evaluating information found online.
