Assignment Survival Kit (ASK)

Description

Assignment Survival Kit is a web-based tool aimed at providing round the clock support for students tackling their first assignment (an essay, a report, a poster or a portfolio). The student enters a start and finishing date and a stepped schedule, mapping out key stages in the completion of the work, is then created. The schedule gives a suggested timescale for activities undertaken in producing an assignment including planning, finding and evaluating materials, citing references and presentation. The software aims to help students adapt to study at tertiary level, encouraging them to take a different approach to their work and providing a single link to the wide range of study support resources available.
