Your practice reflection is an opportunity to reflect on PUBH632 as a whole, and consider how it relates to practice. “Relates to practice” should be thought of in two ways: (1) relates to your past practice and
existing knowledge/skills [marking criterion 1]; and (2) relates to your future career and practice, and the public health competency standards that underpin that [marking criterion2].
For the purposes of this unit, you should consider the Foundation Competencies for Master of Public Health Graduates in Australia, with a focus on the Health Policy, Planning and Management area of

APA6 is the required referencing style for this assessment task. Please ensure that you are familiar with the formatting and usage requirements for this style. Aside from the ACU Library materials provided, you may wish to use the Academic Referencing Tool from the La Trobe University Library.
Turnitin: Turnitin is a tool used to assist in the detection of referencing problems and/or plagiarism. Turnitin generates a similarity index for a document: that is, what percentage of the document contains material that is matched to accessible sources. Presence of similarity does not necessarily indicate plagiarism: there are many reasons why similar text is discovered in student documents.
Turnitin often classifies reference lists themselves as “similar”—this is similarity, but not plagiarism.
In line with section 5.1 of ACU’s Assessment Policy, all assessment marking and grading must be criterion-referenced and use standards-based grading. Assessment criteria and standards are related
to unit learning outcomes. Student performance on a task is evaluated against each criterion, and according to the set standards of achievement for that criterion.
Assessment criteria and standards for this task are provided in the following rubric. Each criterion is marked according to a five-point standard, from “poor” to “excellent”, with a descriptor for each
standard. Within each standard there is a small marking range that further differentiates
Your final mark for the task reflects evaluation against all criteria.
