    Module Questions

    Post  JoDog on Mon Jul 01, 2013 3:14 pm

    Hi All,

    Just a quick question to those who've completed or are in the middle of doing this course- on the module question's what length would you recommended the answers on these should be? in the introduction to the course they advise the project should be approx. 1500 words but I'm not sure how much detail I need to put within each of the module questions. I think I've finished but then find myself going back to try and 'pad' out what I've written and now reading back I'm starting to think it looks like I'm just rambling nonsense. I have completed the Canine Behaviour and Psychology course which was level 3 and each module on this I did approx. half page to full page answer. I'm just not sure how much I should up the anti without going overboard. scratch 

    Thanks Jo

    Hi Jo, I've just picked this up again and am determined to get going properly this time! I have the same question - also, do we need to be referencing everything? The way the questions are worded it seems they are looking for our personal opinions but as a rule it is necessary to back everything up with references.

    Can anyone help here?

    Hi Chris!

    Like yourself various aspects of life have taken over and I haven't opened the books since I posted this Embarassed 

    Yeah its really difficult to judge. For example for the first question where asked to describe something a dog can learn quickly and something needed practised for and why, I cited an example first from Birch& Bailey book and the second from John Fisher book and then went on to describe why I thought these two scenarios played out the way they did. I then cited my explanations with information from adtp site to back up what I was saying. Does that make sense? I referenced these at the end of the paper while just mentioning where I got the examples within the txt as they advised in the guide sheet. But you know your self, when I read back on it I thought hmmmmm... As you said its hard to judge exactly what's expected as I know the standard is superbly high but where is the cut off point?

    Thanks Jo, that helps, yes thanks. I really don't want to under do this, I think I would rather say too much than not enough - not worth getting a poor mark on the first module! Very Happy

    Hi Jo, I made a start then had so much work I had to concentrate on that! Plus a working cocker puppy needs a lot of attention! But I picked it up again last night and I'm determined to get through it this time. Going to plan my day so I can have at least 2 hours from 6 till 8 at least 4 evenings per week or a couple of hours on a morning if I'm not teaching! Now I just have to use my self control to make sure I do it! Very Happy  How about you?

    Still useless Chris! Rolling Eyes 

    I'm using the two year currently swinging out of my neck as my excuse! Am going to try knuckle down this weekend. Really have to pull it together as I want to do other courses but touch anything until I have this finished. I'm determined to try push myself on so I'll keep popping back to see how your progressing Very Happy

    Good luck to both of you. I found it very confusing when I started as I had no idea about referencing or what was expected. I decided to put as much info in as I could. With regard to referencing, if I got the info from a book or the internet then I would reference, but if it was from experience or opinion I wouldn't unless I needed evidence to back up my opinion - not sure if I make sense. Brains a bit fuddled trying to get a module finished before xmas.

    Thanks Sue!

    Well, I've completed Module 1 up to q 1.8 and got stuck again with work! But, I have a whole day off tomorrow and although I want to paint the kitchen and have 3 dog training classes to run tomorrow night I'm hoping I can get a lot more done in between!

    How's it going Jo?

    I was a bit like that Jo, but then once I got back into it I couldn't stop writing! I know what you mean about time though. I'm frustrated this week because I haven't been able to get back into it and I'm half way through Q1. So want to finish it!Sad 

    But I'll get there eventually!Very Happy
