Writing your assessment - support

CSU also has other services which can help you to get the best possible results for your work:

  • Turnitin Software - A Turnitin account allows you to check your own writing for inadvertent plagiarism or quotation errors.  Detect and fix problems before submission. Some assessments will require you to submit your work to Turnitin before final submission! 

  • Academic Literacy, Learning and Numeracy (ALLaN) support - ALLaN advisers can help you understand and prepare for your assignments.
  • The Study Success Forum is an ideal place to post those vexing questions about assignment writing techniques. ‚ÄčFind it in Interact2 > Study Success > Discussion.
  • Why not attend an ALLaN workshop online to enhance or refresh your academic writing skills.
  • Or, make an appointment with an ALLaN adviser for personal help seven days a week.
