It doesnt really help because access courses are institution specific.
If in doubt as your direct classmates or the tutor.
You can also cut and paste examples or the unit 3 question here so people can assess what they think is being sought.

I am super confused on the voting/Harvard referencing. Have I done this right??

Purpose of Education in Society


“Education is Self-Empowerment. Receiving a good education helps empower you, thus making you strong enough to look after yourself in any given situation. It keeps you aware of your given surrounding as well as the rules and regulations of the society you're living in. It's only through knowledge that you can be able to question authority for its negligence or discrepancies. It is only then that you can avail your rights as a citizen and seek improvement in the structural functioning of governance and economy. It's only when a citizen is aware about the policies of its government can he be able to support or protest the change. As a whole, people can bring about development only when they know where improvement is necessary for the greater good of mankind. Education helps you understand yourself better, it helps you realize your potential and qualities as a human being. It helps you to tap into latent talent, so that you may be able to sharpen your skills.”

Receiving a good education will give you the confidence you need to tackle any situation. It will keep you aware of your surroundings and the rules that society holds. (Mohan, 2012)

Helps Plan Ahead

“Those who have amassed enough education, steer the path of development and progress for their country. It is these individuals who go ahead and become teachers, scientists, inventors, welfare activists, soldiers, and politicians who work together to form the very backbone of the society. Without this pool of intellect, the economic and social framework would crumple and fall, paving its way for anarchy, degradation, and violence. While this intricate balance of growth is maintained, there will be a continuous rise in progress in all quarters of life, whether that be personal growth, or development of the nation as an entity. This progress has a very important role to play for the coming generations, which will reap the benefits of our hard work, as they develop it further. At the same time, the negative impact of our actions shall have its collateral damage on the coming generation as well. Which is why we must be exceptionally prudent about the decisions we make and the actions we take in the present.”

“This progress has a very important role to play for the coming generations, which will reap the benefits of our hard work, as they develop it further. At the same time, the negative impact of our actions shall have its collateral damage on the coming generation as well.” (Mohan, 2012)


Job Seeker vs. Job Provider

“There will come a time, when you will no longer feel the need to be working as someone's mere employee. You would want to take charge and control over your own life and income. This is when you will decide to become a self-employed individual, who would like to watch his / her own ideas take realistic form. You would prefer being the one offering job opportunities to others and aid in providing income to them. At this stage of entrepreneurship, you may use your own expertise as well as that of other trained and skilled associates. As a team, you will find your business or venture expanding and yielding good results. You may even gain the confidence and insight, which will help you diversify and spread your expertise into other business arenas, which were previously unknown to you, or you were unsure about. This ability, comes with experience and knowledge amassed over the years.”

One day you may decide that you don’t want to work for somebody else any longer and want to become your own boss. By doing this you can take control of your life and income whilst you watch your ideas come to life. (Mohan, 2012)

On the Job Efficiency

“This is why college education is very important after high school and must not be taken for granted. When faced with the option of choosing between a highly qualified candidate and a not so educated candidate, the employers will most probably go in for the qualified person. The reason being that, a qualified candidate will not require much investment of the employer's time and money. The organization need not teach him or her the tricks of the trade, or the various ways of functioning and performing the tasks of the workplace. On the contrary, a novice / amateur applicant would need to be taught everything from scratch, which many employers are usually not willing to do. The same applies for people who seek higher education and get advanced diplomas while working. These people are continuously improving their profile and their knowledge base so as to go higher up on the competitive ladder.”

So I did:

Paraphrase underneath (cited)
Same as above for 2nd example
Header
Original text
Soandso (year) stated that:
"original text repeated"
Same for second example
Reference

Does that help? Let me know if I've not explained it very well.

Do you need to put the original text in quotation marks/cite or anything or just leave it as it is?

Hi, I've stuck on this question as well. I asked the tutor but her answer wasn't really helpful. Still confused Could you please help me out? What exactly is the "header"? Is it the title of the paragraphs in the article? Also, the "original text" is the whole paragraph or just the 2-3 sentences you quoted?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, sorry I was slow to reply, yes, the header is the title of the paragraphs. When doing the direct quotations I didn't copy all the paragraph as the original text, just the sentences I was using.

You have a text from the assessor. Mine was, for example, an article from Mohan. Choose a paragraph from it.
This is how it should look:
PARAPHRASE

HEADER OF THE PARAGRAPH (for example: ON THE JOB EFFICIENCY)
Copy 2-3 sentences from the paragraph.

Summerize the meaning of the text with your own words. Then put (Mohen, 2012) at the end.
Do it one more time.

QUOTATION

HEADER OF THE PARAGRAPH (for example: ON THE JOB EFFICIENCY)
Copy 2-3 sentences from the paragraph.

According to Mohan (2012) (or, there are some variations you can use here), "copy the sentences, using quotation marks".
Once again.

Reference at the end.
