Referencing Rubric
Providing evidence based on valid and referenced academic sources is a fundamental educational principle and the cornerstone of highquality academic work. Hence, The IIE considers it essential to develop the referencing skills of our students in our commitment to achieve high academic standards. Part of achieving these high standards is referencing in a way that is consistent, technically correct and congruent. This is not plagiarism, which is handled differently.
Poor quality formatting in your referencing will result in a penalty of a maximum of ten percent being deducted from the percentage awarded, according to the following guidelines. Please note, however, that evidence of plagiarism in the form of copied or uncited work (not referenced), absent reference lists, or exceptionally poor referencing, may result in action being taken in accordance with The IIE’s Intellectual Integrity Policy (0023).
Markers are required to provide feedback to students by indicating (circling/underlining) the information that best describes the student’s work.
Minor technical referencing errors: 5% deduction from the overall percentage – the student’s work contains five or more errors listed in the minor errors column in the table below.
Major technical referencing errors: 10% deduction from the overall percentage – the student’s work contains five or more errors listed in the major errors column in the table below.
If both minor and major errors are indicated, then 10% only (and not 5% or 15%) is deducted from the overall percentage. The examples provided below are not exhaustive but are provided to illustrate the error.
Required:
Technically correct referencing style Minor errors in technical correctness of referencing style
Deduct 5% from percentage awarded Major errors in technical correctness of referencing style
Deduct 10% from percentage awarded
Consistency
• The same referencing format has been used for all in-text references and in the bibliography/reference list. Minor inconsistencies.
• The referencing style is generally consistent, but there are one or two changes in the format of in-text referencing and/or in the bibliography.
• For example, page numbers for direct quotes (in-text) have been provided for one source, but not in another instance. Two book chapters (bibliography) have been referenced in the bibliography in two different formats. Major inconsistencies.
• Poor and inconsistent referencing style used intext and/or in the bibliography/ reference list.
• Multiple formats for the same type of referencing have been used.
• For example, the format for direct quotes (in-text) and/or book chapters (bibliography/ reference list) is different across multiple instances.
Technical correctness
Referencing format is technically correct throughout the submission.
Position of the reference: a reference is directly associated with every concept or idea.
For example, quotation marks, page numbers, years, etc. are applied correctly, sources in the bibliography/reference list are correctly presented.
Generally, technically correct with some minor errors.
• The correct referencing format has been consistently used, but there are one or two errors.
• Concepts and ideas are typically referenced, but a reference is missing from one small section of the work.
• Position of the references: references are only given at the beginning or end of every paragraph.
• For example, the student has incorrectly presented direct quotes (in-text) and/or book chapters (bibliography/reference list).
Technically incorrect.
• The referencing format is incorrect.
• Concepts and ideas are typically referenced, but a reference is missing from small sections of the work.
• Position of the references: references are only given at the beginning or end of large sections of work.
• For example, incorrect author information is provided, no year of publication is provided, quotation marks and/or page numbers for direct quotes missing, page numbers are provided for paraphrased material, the incorrect punctuation is used (in-text); the bibliography/reference list is not in alphabetical order, the incorrect format for a book chapter/journal article is used, information is missing e.g. no place of publication had been provided (bibliography); repeated sources on the reference list.
Congruence between in-text referencing and bibliography/
reference list
• All sources are accurately reflected and are all accurately included in the bibliography/ reference list.
Generally, congruence between the intext referencing and the bibliography/ reference list with one or two errors.
• There is largely a match between the sources presented in-text and the bibliography.
• For example, a source appears in the text, but not in the bibliography/ reference list or vice versa. A lack of congruence between the in-text referencing and the bibliography.
• No relationship/several incongruencies between the in-text referencing and the bibliography/reference list.
• For example, sources are included in-text, but not in the bibliography and vice versa, a link, rather than the actual reference is provided in the bibliography.
In summary: the recording of references is accurate and complete. In summary, at least 80% of the sources are correctly reflected and included in a reference list. In summary, at least 60% of the sources are incorrectly reflected and/or not included in reference list.
Overall Feedback about the consistency, technical correctness and congruence between in-text referencing and bibliography:

Question 1 — Tourism planning and development (Marks: 45)
There are multiple stakeholders in the development of any tourism product. Watch the video below on the types and roles of these stakeholders, and then answer the questions that follow.

Q.1.1 Select any one of the tourism industries below and provide practical examples of eight stakeholders for this tourism industry.
• Wine tourism.
• Wildlife and Safaris.
• Food tourism. (24)
Q.1.2 Choose one of the industries above (Not the one that you selected for Q.1.1) and explain, with a practical example, any eight of the characteristics that define the difference between tourism products and ordinary products. Your answer must be based on evidence, and thus must include a reference from a researched source. No marks will be allocated if a reference is not provided.
You will receive two marks per example provided, if it indicates understanding and five marks will be awarded if you included references and used the correct referencing method. (21)

Q.2.1 Explain what you understand by the term, “Sustainability”, and provide a practical example. (5)
Q.2.2 Do you believe that shark cage diving is sustainable, and contributes towards both the protection of the natural environment as well as the industry? Provide researched evidence to substantiate your answer. (10)
Q.2.3 Sustainability of a tourist attraction or area can relate both to the natural environment, but also to man-made attractions. Often, as in the case of the above example, these two are linked to each other as they are part of an overall tourism experience. Provide another practical example where the ultimate sustainability and survival of a man-made attraction is linked directly to the sustainability of the natural environment that it is part of. (5)
Q.2.4 Research and explain two tourism sustainability projects in South Africa. Give a detailed description of the project, why it was launched, and comment on whether or not you believe the specific project will have a long-term benefit for the South African Tourism industry. (10)
