SALT: THE STUDENT'S ACADEMIC LITERACY TOOL
About this idea
The SALT has been constructed to aid students in improving the standard of their academic writing at University. The tool is organised as a checklist, where students are able to tick off each of the criteria needed to attain a standard of writing that will be accepted within University. We recognise that within University, there are a number of students with a range of abilities and in including the glossary section, we hope to have covered as many of these abilities as possible.
We have included some feedback that we received from a pilot study of students. The findings suggest that there is a high demand for a tool like this, however, the students would prefer to engage with the tool online.
