Welcome to SEB104

Supporting Information

This guide is a companion site to the SEB104 Blackboard site.  For detailed information about SEB104, including assessment information, see the SEB104 Blackboard site.  The purpose of this guide is to provide additional resources to assist you in completing your assessments.

Understanding your assessment tasks

  • In the assessment-related sections in this guide, you have been directed to relevant sections of StudySmart and to the Study section of HiQ.  Additional information specific to finding information sources in Science is also provided.
  • There are workshops, drop-in sessions and individual support to help you develop the academic skills you need to complete the assessment items. In the Researching and Referencing section, you will find information about relevant library workshops.

Critical Analysis

Across the assessment items you are expected to critically analyze the information you read. This questioning process is called critical thinking or critical analysis. Simply, critical thinking or critical analysis involves more than just accepting the information given to you but asking how it relates to your area of investigation or study.
