This NUTR2001 Human Nutrition assessment is aimed at developing the student’s understanding of all of the macronutrients and the role they play in human metabolism.

By prescribing this assessment, students are able to build on their understanding of the importance of nutrition in relation to human physiology and health. This assessment allows students to further advance their skills in sourcing and identifying reliable and credible information, which they will incorporate into their written work. Students are able to develop their academic writing skills, as they are expected to express their ideas in a coherent and

logical manner, while also enhancing their critical analysis skills, through interpretation and translation of the informationresearched.


Students are to discuss all of the following macronutrients listed below, and in a 1500- word report, define and describe the macronutrients in terms of:

  • The composition of themacronutrients
  • The biological functions
  • Dietary sources
  • Recommended Daily Intake (RDI)
  • Factors contributing to states of excess
  • Factors contributing to states of insufficiency and deficiency
  • Signs and symptoms


  • Protein
  • Carbohydrates
  • Lipids


It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing here


Students should use at least five (5) reputable resources in their NUTR2001 Human Nutrition report.

Information may be sourced from primary, secondary and tertiary sources:

  • Primary sources: original research articles, systematic reviews and meta-analysis from high quality journals, peer reviewed journals.
  • Secondary sources: general review articles, summaries, abstracts of primary source articles.
  • Tertiary sources: recognised, authoritative textbooks.

Submission Instructions:

Students to submit via the Assessment link in the main navigation menu in NUTR2001 Human Nutrition 1. The Learning Facilitator will provide feedback via the Grade Centre in the LMS portal. Feedback can be viewed in My Grades.

See the attached format for how to structure your report.

How to Write a Report

The purpose of writing a report is to present information which can be described or analysed. The key differences between writing a report and an essay; are that an essay provides opportunity for exploration of ideas which can be expanded on in a lot more detail. A report on the other hand is more prescriptive in its structure and the language that is used. This means that your writing style needs to be concise and clear. Reports are broken up into headings and subheadings, can include tables, graphs and diagrams; and information can be presented in dot point form where appropriate.

The following is a basic report structure which can be used to successfully complete this assessment task.


This section requires you to provide background information on the topic you have chosen to investigate (including historical context, surrounding changes in our understanding), the purpose of your report, and what information your report will contain. This section is to be written in complete sentences and paragraphs. It does not to contain any dot point information or tables, graphs and diagrams.

Body of Report

This section will be broken up into a series of subheadings which will address each of the key areas you are required to research for your topic. The majority of these sections should be written in complete sentences and paragraphs however, you can include graphs, diagrams and tables that may be appropriate. Ensure that you title these clearly, in the correct way, and reference using the APA system where necessary. Tables, graphs and diagrams can also be added in an appendix at the end of your report, and when doing this, you need to clearly state where the item can be located. Generally, information presented in this format does not

count towards your overall word count. Some information may be presented in dot point, however if the majority of your information is set out in this way it makes it difficult to evaluate your level of understanding for each area being researched.


This section brings together all of the information that you have presented in your report, and links back to your introduction any information that adds value to our overall understanding of the topic. You can also discuss any areas which have been identified as requiring further research or investigation and how this will work to improve or change our understanding of the topic. This section does not introduce or discuss any new information specifically, and like the introduction, will be written in complete sentences and paragraphs. No tables, graphs, diagrams or dot points.


After the body of your report, you should list your references. You will need to list them in alphabetical order using the surname of the author, as per the APA 7th Edition format. Please ensure that you list all the resources you have used throughout the report, including any items in the Appendix.


Here you can include information which you may have referred to specifically throughout your report, but were unable to include directly into the report (usually due to limited word count). You need to ensure that anything you include here is clearly titled and easily identifiable as to where it relates within your report.

Word Count

Word count must be clearly displayed on the title page or cover sheet. Required word count does not include text appearing in the title page, abstract, reference list or appendices, but does include in-text citations, the body of the text, headings and tables*. Tables, graphs, and figures should be included as Appendices at the end of your assignment, and should not substitute the amount of information or discussion in the body of the academic submission, and should not consist of more than 10% of the total assignment word count. If you have any queries please consult with your lecturer before you complete and submit your assessment.

Overdue Assessments

An assessment is ‘overdue’ when it is not submitted by the due date or by the agreed extension date. For each calendar day (i.e. 24 hours) the assessment is late, a loss of 10% of the total possible marks will occur up to a total of five calendar days, after which a zero mark will be recorded. Arrangements for an assessment extension is available to students with unexpected or extenuating circumstances.
