Skills for Study 2 for IYO Assessment Outline – Group Discussion January 2017
Task: prepare notes for and participate in a group discussion on the topic below. Number of students: 3-5; duration of discussion: 15-25 minutes depending on group size (to be confirmed by your tutor).
To what extent do you agree with the following
The results of a survey of developed nations’ attitudes towards immigration show that over 40% of governments have adopted policies to reduce immigration levels. To what extent should immigration levels be capped or reduced? How can governments ensure immigration has a positive impact on local economies and cultures?
Use data and information from your research to support your ideas.
Important Information:
You may have notes with you during the discussion, but you should not read directly from them; you must be able to speak independently of your notes. You do not have to reach a group consensus (agreement) at the end of the discussion, but you should listen and respond to other students’ point of view. Your group must continue the discussion for 15-25 minutes without help from your tutor.
What you will be assessed on:
Your ability to participate in a formal discussion, which involves:

ability to contribute ideas relevant to the topic
ability to express your opinions and support them with academic evidence
ability to interact with other group members: evidence of listening to the opinions 
of the other students and responding accordingly
ability to develop your ideas/arguments and support them with examples and data from academic sources
ability to take equal turns (including bringing other participants into the discussion) and use of turn-taking language. 
Further guidelines:
Each group member will be assessed individually.
You will lose marks if you dominate the discussion without attempting to involve 
the other participants; you should try to take equal turns.
If you are late for this oral assessment, then you will not be allowed into the 
assessment venue; you will be recorded as absent and awarded zero for the assessment.
