Assessment Information
Your reflective essay should include:
• An academic analysis of your own experience. This should include a critical reflection on
your thoughts, feelings and actions. Ensure to integrate these reflections with theoretical
concepts. Reflective essay can be entirely written in the first person.
• A brief discussion of identified strengths and areas for development presenting your own
results, your associates’ results, and a discussion of the patterns, similarities/differences,
and trends you discover. Also, please ensure you link your discussions to appropriate
theoretical concepts.
• Evidence of integration of feedback received from your associates, as well as consideration
of your own past experiences and feedback from other sources you’ve received in years
gone by.
• A clear conclusion reflecting how your new insights may assist you with a potential career
in a culturally diverse organisation.
• A reference list.
• Show proofs of completed surveys, yours and your associates
(Face to face students to
their facilitators in Week 5 at the end of the seminar. On-line students are asked to
scan the tests and email them to their on-line facilitator). Please note that the
evidence of the tests is worth 6/30.
Further guidance:
• This paper requires a significant amount of analysis and personal reflection. This means
that you should consider the Johari Window model by breaking down its four parts and
reflecting on how the various quadrants provide a deeper understanding of yourself.
• The attached marking rubrics guide the marker when awarding marks for your reflective
essay. You should review your paper in line with this to ensure there is nothing you have
missed.
• It is important to check your similarity in Turnitin. All sentences highlighted must be either
paraphrased in your own words or put in quotes and referenced accordingly. You should

be aiming for as low a similarity score as you can. Similarity highlighted in a contents page,
reference list or appendices is nothing to be concerned about.
