When do you need to Reference?
When the work of another person (be it written; visual – painting, print or image; film; in audio format or from the Web) is used in an assessment task, students must acknowledge the sources of the work, in the text of their task and in a Reference List at the end of the task.
To assist students in referencing work St Andrew’s Cathedral School has identified American Psychological Association (APA) Referencing Style – 6th Edition as the preferred Style Guide for the school.
Reference List or Bibliography?
- A reference list - required when following the APA style guide, is a list of only the works cited in the text of a task.
- A bibliography - required when you footnote, is a list of all the works used to write the task, that is, both works cited in the text of the task and works consulted to complete the task.
