This paper reports unexpected findings arising from the evaluation of an online tutorial designed to assist students in preparing their assignments at the University of Western Sydney. The tutorial attempts to fill a gap that cannot be met in universities struggling in the current fiscal and aims to help students produce quality work free of plagiarism. Using a mixed methods approach, we found that students in general struggle to understand academic writing and referencing and that a freely available online resource is beneficial.
