The reflective learning journal will be assessed based on the following criteria:
1. You need to demonstrate critical engagement with the subject matter including (but not limited to): o You should progressively build up an accounting glossary or list of terms used in this unit. You can provide explanations of accounting concepts in your own words. o Progressively build up a list of definitions, equations, formulas etc. that need to be memorized and be aware of which will be helpful when recording day to day business operations. o You can prepare a summary of the knowledge and skills you are developing from topic to topic. Your summary should demonstrate a degree of synthesis and integration rather than being just a list of points. You should show evidence of learning activities undertaken, demonstrating the application of accounting principles to practice and/or reinforcement of technical skills.
2. You should demonstrate active engagement in learning experiences. This can include: self-evaluation of progressive assessment tasks completed, how you feel you could have improved your results in quizzes, and in the self-test questions, and how you plan to make best use of feedback provided for future practices.
3. You can make meaningful reflections on the progressive learning experience, showing how the results of your reflection on learning in earlier topics improved your learning in later topics. Self-evaluation is designed to give you the opportunity to reflect and comment on the way you approach assessments, such as quizzes. Self-evaluations can be a critical part of your learning journey.
4. You thoughts and comments should be integrated and should be expressed clearly and concisely.
