Assessment #2: Research Poster (30%)


Summarise and evaluate research (i.e., evidence-base) on the correlates of offending and victimisation, to inform commentary on the youth justice system and the young people caughtup in it.

What you need to do:
1. Complete all learning activities as outlined in STEP 1 and STEP 2 of Module 3: Correlates of Offending and Victimisation folder on the subject’s vUWS site.

2. Choose ONE correlate as the focus (e.g., education and how it correlates to offending and victimisation or out-of-home care and how it correlates to offending and victimisation). There will be intersections, but when you write and present the research you need to make it clear to the reader which correlate is the focus.

3. Download and familiarise yourself with the Assessment 2 Marking Criteria available in the Subject Outline, Assessment 2 folder. Markers will apply these criteria in grading submissions.

4. Create a Research Poster by:

a. Writing 750-words (+/- 10% leeway) that summarise and evaluate the evidence base as presented in the two essential readings and the practitioner interviews available in the Youth Justice Portal. The main text, including intext citations, will count in the word count. However, headings, sub-headings, and the reference list are not included in the word count limit, and;

b. Create and insert SmartArt, graphs, charts and/or tables generated from your readings and viewing. You MUST create your own, cutting and pasting existing tables and/or other figures and graphs from the readings and/or other sources will not be counted as having met the requirements of the Marking Criteria.

5. Research Poster Structure: use the basic headings shown below to structure the content. You may add sub-headings that connect better with the claims you are making in the poster. The evidence-base section may be where you add sub-headings.

a. Introduction

b. Evidence-base

c. Conclusion and;

d. References.

6. The completed submission MUST include text 750-word (+/- 10% leeway) and graphs, charts or tables created by you, from data presented in the essential readings. To best meet this task requirement, you should ensure participation via the active learning components for Module #3 (i.e., attend your workshop or complete the asynchronous learning program).

7. You MUST make use of the two essential readings for Module 3: Correlates of Offending and Victimisation as part of your research poster – it is okay if you find that one reading offers more for your chosen correlate than the other.

8. Reference the authors and practitioners, in-text and in the reference list (See the marking criteria for Assessment 2 in the Subject Outline on vUWS). Should you find it difficult to make the reference list ‘fit’ in your main poster slide, please make sure to add a second slide for the reference list. A maximum of two slides will be accepted, the second slide MUST only contains the references.

9. A PowerPoint template linked within the Assessment 2 folder on vUWS will be made available for use.

10. Submit your Research Poster via the Turnitin Link in the Assessment 2 folder BEFORE the due date and time. Turnitin submissions must not include text as an ‘image’ – if the ‘text-boxes’ in your submission are picked up as an ‘image’ rather than a ‘text-box’ markers will ask you to re-submit your work using the required format. Marking of
your work may be delayed consequently.
