• No abstract, or missing important aspects of the study or is
too long and rambling;
0 – 4 5 – 6 7 8 9-10
• Title concise and appropriate;
• Abstract presented all appropriate information concisely; /10
Introduction
• Broad introductory statement about behaviour to be
modified is either too specific or is irrelevant to thetopic;
• Concepts not defined or incorrectly defined;
• Lacks empirical justification for behaviour modification ;
• Fails to comment upon the existing reinforcement
contingencies and cues that impact on the behaviour tobe
modified.
• Lacks theoretical basis for behavioural intervention, or
theories are irrelevant to the current study;
• Does not consider how the behavioural intervention will
influence the existing reinforcement contingencies andcues
that influence the behaviour to be modified;
• Aims/hypotheses not present, or irrelevant;
• Poorly written, poor grammar or poorspelling;
0 -12 13-15 16-18 19-20 21-25
• Outline of the topic begins broadly and explains the importance of
the topic;
• Integrated definitions of terms and concepts;
• Clear justification for behavioural modification based on empirical
research;
• Identifies existing reinforcement contingencies that impact on
behaviour that is to be modified;
• Theories underpinning the behavioural intervention are clearly
articulated and related to the aims of the study;
• Clearly indicates how the behavioural intervention strategy effects
the existing reinforcement contingencies and cues that influence
the behaviour to be modified;
• Clear and accurate aims and hypotheses;
• Written concisely and clearly, good grammar and spelling;
/25
Method
• Participants subsection is missing or lacks detail;
• No justification for why the measure used is an appropriate
measure of the behaviour to be modified;
• Information about how the behaviour was measured is
lacking, incoherent or imprecise.
• Procedural information about the intervention employed is
missing, is incoherent or isimprecise.

• Participants subsection has appropriate detail;
• Clear justification for why the measure used is an appropriate
measure of the behaviour to be modified;
• Information about how the behaviour was measured is
appropriate, clear and concise;
• Procedure is in chronological order, is concise but has sufficient
detail so it could be reproduced fromdescription;

Results
• Figures/tables and/or data, presented incorrectly, or are
very difficult to interpret
• Data are not verbally described and/or are not related to
hypotheses
• Poorly written, poor grammar and/or spelling
0-7 8-9 10 11-12 13-15
• Correct figure or table (without duplication) which is easy to
interpret.
• Data are clearly related to hypotheses in verbal description of
results
• Written concisely and clearly, with good grammar and spelling /15
Discussion
• Results not interpreted or are inaccurately interpreted or
are not linked to the hypotheses.
• No attempt to interpret how the behavioural
intervention impacted on the existing reinforcement
contingencies identified in the Introduction.
• Results are not related back to theory of behaviour
modification or are related to irrelevanttheory.
• Overemphasis on methodological or other limitations of
the study.
• No attempt to identify implications of the results for
future interventions or for others or implicationsstated
with no justification for them.
• Poorly written, poor grammar and/or spelling.
0 -12 13-15 16-18 19-20 21-25
• Results accurately interpreted in relation to the hypotheses,
• Discusses how the behavioural intervention impacted on the
existing reinforcement contingencies indentified in the
Introduction
• Discusses how results relate to theories of behaviour
modification underpinning the intervention.
• Appropriate acknowledgement of methodological or other
limitations of the study, and suggested improvements.
• Implications of behaviour intervention going into the future and
whether it would generalise to others are well described and
justified.
• Written concisely and clearly, with good grammar andspelling.

References
• No references, referencing from unreliable sources or
plagiarised references;
