ACCT5023 Financial Accounting Assignment -University of South Australia.
This assessment is designed to develop the Australian Quality Framework (AQF) Threshold Learning Standard for Accountants of:
CO1. Understand the advanced theoretical and technical knowledge, conceptual, statutory and professional requirements that impinge upon the preparation of general-purpose financial reports.
CO2. Apply findings from accounting information and communicate to stakeholders.
CO3. Critically apply technical accounting knowledge and skills to solve advanced accounting problems.
• If information contained in the assignment is not your own words or ideas you must acknowledge the source within the text of the paper as well as in the reference list.
• If you use another person’s words (i.e. you quote) you must indicate that this is a direct quote (usually by quotation marks) and reference the source (including the page number) within the text of the paper. Including the source in the reference list or bibliography is not sufficient. Changing,deleting, adding only a few words, or rearranging the sentence/paragraph does not negate that fact that you are quoting.
If paraphrasing, you still need to include an in-text reference (which includes the page number). And take care that the paraphrasing is not ‘too close’ to the original; i.e. that it is in fact a quote.
• The fact that the source of the material is from an Internet site, and/or the specific author cannot be identified does not negate the need to acknowledge the source of the ideas or words, or to reference correctly.

As a facilitator, your main role is to guide your students through the practical experience requirement by supporting and preparing them, for life-long learning in pursuit of personal development and excellence in professional learning.
