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.

Referencing is an important skill for students to learn.

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.
