The submission of your essay:
 Mid-way through this assessment period, you must submit the first draft to your class teacher.
This draft will not be assessed. However, it should be as complete as possible at this stage so that
you can fully benefit from your teacher’s feedback.
• Both submissions (the first for teacher feedback, the second for final grading) must be done
through Turnitin, a plagiarism detection program, preferably one or two days ahead of the
submission deadline to ensure that your Turnitin report can be generated in good time.
• If the submission of your final essay misses the deadline, your teacher will grade your first draft
as submitted to Turnitin. If you do not submit your first draft and you miss the submission of
your final essay, you will score 0 for this assessment.
Guidelines on Academic Honesty
During your first semester at CityU you should complete an online tutorial on academic honesty;
We would like to remind you that the advice given to you in the tutorial is very relevant when
working on your EAP essays.
Although this coursework essay is a process writing assessment, and you are working outside of
class, there are certain guidelines you must follow:

Do not ask friends / siblings / others to proofread your work. You will be given feedback from
your class teacher. This should be enough for you to make significant changes to your first
and final drafts. If you feel that you would like more feedback, you can make an appointment
to see an advisor in the Writing Studio.

Do not copy from other EAP students.

Do not copy from the Internet or other sources without following the citation conventions
you have learnt in class.

Do not copy from essays you have done in the past.

Do not copy from model essays or other notes that you may have received from secondary
school or tutorial centres.

Do not use online translation tools.
If your teacher feels that your essay is not a representative sample of your own work, they will have
to report it to the Course Coordinator for possible further investigation into plagiarism. It is essential
that you follow the university’s guidelines on academic honesty to ensure that this does not happen.
While we understand that you are keen to improve your essay and get a good grade, you must
remember that we aim to conduct a FAIR assessment. We would like to assess a sample of YOUR
work and not a piece of work that has been partly or wholly written by somebody else.
This process writing assessment provides you with a chance to achieve YOUR best performance by
going through a drafting and rewriting cycle. Such a cycle involves both teacher input and your
personal revisions as you notice errors and learn more from your EAP classes and ELSS services. It
also allows you to find new ways to make your writing more sophisticated.
