Assignment Information
 
This assignment requires you to write a 2000-2500 word original portfolio comprising 5 written responses (plus appendices if used). There is no word count for each of the 5 responses but you are advised to write between 400 and 500 words per item.
Your written entries will build upon seminar activities and online activities which will be released throughout the semester. 8 will be issued in total and you will choose which to present in your portfolio.
How to submit your assessment
 
The portfolio must be submitted via Turnitin by 23.55 on Monday 13th April 2015. No paper copies are required. You can access the Turnitin link through the module web.
 

Your coursework will be given a zero mark if you do not submit a copy through Turnitin. Should you submit work on time but fail the assignment, you will be offered a resit opportunity but the resit mark will be capped at 40%.
All work submitted after the submission deadline without a valid and approved reason (see below) will be given a mark of zero. Please note that a non-submission is not the same as a failed submission; a failed submission counts as an attempt whereas an absent mark does not necessarily allow you to resit the coursework.
Short deferrals (extensions) of up to three calendar weeks can only be given for genuine “force majeure” and medical reasons, not for bad planning of your time. Please note that theft, loss, or failure to keep a back-up file, are not valid reasons. The short deferral must be applied for on or before the submission date. You can apply for a short deferral by submitting an Examination/ Coursework Deferral Application Form. Application Forms along with the supporting evidence should go to the relevant Student Support Office (WMG03). For a longer delay in submission a student may apply for a long deferral.
Students MUST keep a copy and/or an electronic file of their assignment.
Checks will be made on your work using anti-plagiarism software and approved plagiarism checking websites.

 
 
GUIDELINES AND BACKGROUND TO THIS ASSIGNMENT
 
This assessment will assess the module learning outcomes 1, 2 and 4 and makes up 70% of the overall module mark.
 
 
Word Count Limit
 
Your word count includes in text citations but not the final references or appendices. If you are more than 10% over or under the word count limit you may lose marks as a 10% penalty applies.
 
The contents of your References and Appendices are not normally given a specific mark (though they may contribute to your overall mark, as detailed in the assessment criteria). We therefore recommend that you only use Appendices for supporting material and not for the substantive part of your work.
 
 
Plagiarism
 
As part of your study you will be involved in carrying out research and using this when writing up your coursework. It is important that you correctly acknowledge someone else’s writing or thoughts and that you do not attempt to pass this off as your own work. Doing so is known as plagiarism. It is not acceptable to copy from another source without acknowledging that it is someone else’s writing or thinking. This includes using paraphrasing as well as direct quotations. You are expected to correctly cite and reference the works of others. The Centre for Academic Writing provides documents to help you get this right. If you are unsure, please visit
 
Turnitin includes a plagiarism detection system and assessors are experienced enough to recognise plagiarism when it occurs. Copying another student’s work, using previous work of your own or copying large sections from a book or the internet are examples of plagiarism and carry serious consequences. Please familiarise yourself with the CU Harvard Reference Style (on Moodle) and use it correctly to avoid a case of plagiarism or cheating being brought. Again, if you are unsure, please contact the Centre for Academic Writing or a member of the course team.
 
 
 
Return of Marked Work
 
You can expect to have marked work returned to you 2 weeks after the submission date. Marks and feedback will be provided online. As always, marks will have been internally moderated only, and will therefore be provisional; your mark will be formally agreed later in the year once the external examiner has completed his / her review.
 
 
 
 
Assessment Criteria
 

 
Mark range
 
Guidelines

 
70 – 100%
 
 
 
Five answers must be completed in order to pass the assessment.
In order to secure a mark in this range, a candidate must submit an outstanding answer that could hardly be bettered. In addition to the criteria identified below for a mark between 70-85%, an answer scoring a mark of 85-100% would show an excellent level of understanding and critical/analytic skills and originality. For example, such a portfolio would demonstrate how theory and practice inform each other throughout the five answers.
 
A portfolio in this range will demonstrate a strong understanding of theories, concepts and issues relating to managing business responsibly. There will be evidence of wide-ranging reading from a variety of valid sources (as described and presented in the marking criteria for 60-69%).
 
The student may also identify alternative ways that the author could have presented the information.
 
The assignment must be written in a clear, well-structured way and show evidence of independent, critical thought. It must show extensive relevant reading on the subject and intelligent use of the material to present a well-balanced and well-argued assignment. For example, the student will have considered a range of relevant issues and be able to assess the strength and weaknesses of various approaches/arguments and put forward a confident and articulate view of their own.

 
60 – 69%
Five answers must be completed in order to pass the assessment.
A portfolio in this mark range will demonstrate a good understanding of the requirements of the assignment and of theories, concepts and issues relating to managing business responsibly. An assignment in this percentage range will include a balanced discussion of issues central to the question, how these are addressed by different authors or sources and some critical thinking into their relative merits or shortcomings. Discussions is clear and coherent for the majority of the portfolio. Theory and practice clearly inform each other for much of the portfolio.
 
The answer will be contain few errors and little, if any, irrelevant material. It will show evidence of reading from a variety of sources (i.e. more than 3 or 4) but not so many sources that the discussion loses focus and becomes unclear or irrelevant. All sources should be of some academic merit (e.g. books, journals, reports, media publications). Unreferenced material from non-credible internet sources MUST be avoided.
 
The student presents evidence of understanding discourses and has identified several appropriately from the given text.
 
All sources must be included and properly referenced in the references. The assignment will be well-organised and clearly written/presented overall.

 
50 – 59%
 
 
 
 
 
 
Five answers must be completed in order to pass the assessment.
The answers will demonstrate some reasonable understanding of relevant theories, concepts and issues relating to managing business responsibly but also some minor errors of fact or understanding.
 
The assignment will not be based on an extensive range of sources (for example few references are included), or much evidence that they have been read closely or well-understood. For example, the assignment will retell sources rather than analyse them.
 
The assignment may be quite general in parts. Some errors may be present and some irrelevant material may be included.
 
The portfolio may not be particularly well-structured, and/or clearly presented and contain some spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. A few sentences may be unclear.

 
40 – 49%
 
Five answers must be completed in order to pass the assessment.
A mark within this percentage range will be given to a portfolio which:

shows some limited basic understanding of the subject but is incomplete. For example, if it answers one part of an individual question but not the rest.
makes only very general statements
includes some factual errors or misunderstandings e.g. confusion between different companies or misuse of certain key terms.
shows limited use of material with limited reading/research on the topic and includes only a very small number of references, not all of which are included in the references
includes spelling mistakes, is poorly structured with no clear argument and grammar mistakes making it difficult to understand.
includes some irrelevant material.

 
35 – 39%
All portfolios with less than five answers will automatically receive a mark below 40%.
A mark within this percentage range will be given to an assignment which:

includes only a limited amount of relevant material.
shows little evidence of reading/research on the topic. For example, the essay includes only very few references, and relies only on material or case studies used during the course.
shows only a very basic understanding of the subject.
is poorly presented with bad grammar, some spelling mistakes and an incomplete reference list.
has a poor structure and does not flow e.g. if there is no conclusion or new facts are introduced in the conclusion rather than introduction or main discussion.
contains some fundamental errors.

 
20 – 34%
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
0 – 19%
All portfolios with less than five answers will automatically receive a mark below 40%.
A poor fail on this assignment means the assignment submitted:

is poor and suggests that the student has spent very little time on it e.g. if the answer is considerably under the word requirement and/or presented in note form rather than as a fully written up essay.
bears little relation to the assignment topic.
shows a poor understanding of theories, concepts and issues relating to managing business responsibly and to the learning outcomes detailed in this document.
contains some or many fundamental errors and misunderstandings of the academic or other material used. For example many of the facts cited are incorrect.
uses literature or other material which is largely irrelevant or has no academic value
is poorly structured and poorly presented. For example, sentences may be hard to understand and contain many spelling or grammatical mistakes.
contains no references.

 
 
All portfolios with less than five answers will automatically receive a mark below 40%.
Work within this mark range shows a complete failure to meet the requirements of the assignment. A mark in this range will be given for a portfolio which:

is significantly shorter or longer than the assessment guide stipulates.
bears no link to the questions chosen and shows very little or no knowledge or understanding of any of the theories, concepts and issues relating to managing business responsibly. The answer may be fundamentally wrong or trivial.
contains no references and/or evidence of relevant reading.
shows little understanding of the requirements of the assignment and only a vague knowledge of the subject area.
includes numerous fundamental errors in the understanding or presentation of the material discussed. There is a general lack of facts/evidence and what is provided is mostly incorrect and/or irrelevant.
is poorly structured and poorly presented. Spelling and grammar are poor. Many sentences are incomprehensible.
the examiners do not feel could be described as a serious attempt by any reasonable standards.
