Interim Feedback opportunity
There would be numerous opportunities for interim feedback during the weekly lectures and seminars. This provides you with the opportunity to receive constructive comments and ensure you are developing your work in the right direction.

Guidance
• Your report should be written in a formal academic style, and as such it should not be written in the first person. However, as the last sub-task is reflective, it could be written in the first person.
• Start your report with an introduction in which you identify your interpretation of the task and briefly set out how you are going to present the information. You may also wish to define the boundaries of your report.
• Break up your report into paragraphs. Try to limit each paragraph to one key point.
• Provide a brief summary at the end of your report.
• It is perfectly acceptable to use paragraph headings within your report to provide a clear indication of the structure.
• You should read about reflective writing and learning journals to help you write very reflectively and demonstrate your learning from the module. You can complement this with academic sources of literature on the subject matter.

Specific Requirements
• The report is limited to a maximum length of 3000 (+/- 10%) words, excluding the title page and any references, with the word count being clearly shown on the cover page of the report. (NB – There will be a penalty deduction of 10% from the mark awarded for exceeding the word limit, and/or for not including the word count on the cover page.)
• Learners will demonstrate engagement and understanding of the class exercises.
• Report should be written in proper Academic English and should reflect critical thinking.
• There must be a minimum of six separate references cited in the body of the report.
• The citations in the text and the list of references at the end of the report must conform to the Harvard system of referencing.
• The report assesses the attainment of LOs 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the module.

The assessment criteria and weightings show you what is important in the assessment and how marks are shared across each criterion. When you are completing your assessment remember you need to fulfil the brief and the assessment criteria below. At the end of this document, we have provided you a more detailed marking grid, which describes both the expectation for each criterion and how marks would be awarded based upon performance.

The University has arrangements for marking, internal moderation and external scrutiny. Further information can be found in Section 12 of the Handbook of Academic Regulations, westminster.ac.uk/study/current-students/resources/academic-regulations

Anonymous marking

Do NOT include your name or student number within the file name or anywhere within your submission. The submission will be subject to anonymous marking. Having logged into blackboard the system will record your details anonymously and tutors will only see your name after the entire submission has been assessed and provisional marks have been released to all students at the same time.
Referencing requirements for the assessment

Statements, assertions and ideas made in coursework should be supported by citing relevant sources. Sources cited in the text should be listed at the end of the assignment in a reference list. Any material that you read but do not cite in the report should go into a separate bibliography. Unless explicitly stated otherwise by the module teaching team, all referencing should be in Westminster Harvard format. If you are not sure about this, the library provides guidance (available via the library website pages).

The deadline and submitting your coursework – checks

Unless indicated otherwise, coursework is submitted via Blackboard.
The deadline for this assessment is 9 January 2023 at 13:00. This means that your work should be fully uploaded before 13:00. The University would treat your submission as late, if your work has not been fully uploaded and stored on the server before 13:00. In order to avoid your submission being marked as late, you should upload your work as soon as possible before the deadline and must not wait until or just before the deadline to start uploading your work.
At busy times the coursework submission process may run slowly. To ensure that your submission is not recorded as a late submission, avoid submitting very close to the deadline.

To submit your assignment:
1. Log on to Blackboard at http://learning.westminster.ac.uk;

2. Go to the Blackboard site for this module;

3. Click on the ‘Submit assessment’ link in the navigation menu

4. Click on the link for the assessment;

5. Follow the instructions, ensuring that you have selected the correct file to upload.

REMEMBER

It is a requirement that you submit your work in this way. All coursework must be uploaded by 13:00 (UK Time on 9 January 2023).

If you submit your assessment late but within 24 hours or one ‘working’ day of the specified deadline, 10% of the overall marks available for that assessment will be deducted as a penalty for late submission, except for work which is marked in the marginal pass rate range (9% above the pass mark) and in this case the mark would be capped at the pass mark.

If you submit your coursework more than 24 hours after the specified deadline you will be given a mark of zero for the work in question.

Difficulties in submitting assignments on time

If you have difficulties for reasons beyond your control (e.g. serious illness, family problems etc.) that prevent you from submitting the assessment, make sure you apply to the Mitigating Circumstances board with evidence to support your claim as soon as possible. Further details can be found on the following URL: https://www.westminster.ac.uk/current-students/guides-and-policies/assessment-guidelines/mitigating-circumstances-claims

If you are unsure about the above information, you should seek academic support from your module leader, personal tutor or your course leader. You will find details of your module leader in this module’s handbook and you can find the name of your course leader and personal tutor from your “My Student Records” page via the University’s student portal.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT & FEEDBACK ARRANGEMENTS

For this assessment there will be an opportunity for an academic support & feedback drop-in session, where you will receive support and feedback on your assessment prior to submission. Further details are provided in the module handbook. There will also be opportunities to receive academic support during lectures through allocated questions and answers sessions and through the discussion board on the module blackboard site.
After submission, summative feedback will be provided online via blackboard, where feedback takes the form of an indication of performance on the provided making grid. You will also receive a number on key points of strength, weakness and academic skills you can improve upon. We aim to provide you this feedback within 15 working days and after the feedback has been released online there will also be an opportunity to meet with marker for oral feedback [GIVE DATE OF FEEDBACK RETURN]. If you are unsure about how to see your provisional marks and feedback, the following LINK will explain how you cand do this – https://blog.westminster.ac.uk/blackboardhelp/marks-and-feedback/

General feedback for the entire module will also be made via blackboard to the module, which will discuss the key areas of shared strengths, weaknesses and academic skills improvements. This general feedback is likely to be issued before your specific summative feedback and we would strongly encourage you to read this feedback to improve your understanding of the module and potentially areas of weaknesses in your academic skills which you could develop before your next submission within your course.

Academic integrity

What you submit for assessment must be your own current work. It will automatically be scanned through a text matching system to check for possible plagiarism.

Do not reuse material from other assessments that you may have completed on other modules. Collusion with other students (except when working in groups), recycling previous assignments (unless this is explicitly allowed by the module leader) and/or plagiarism (copying) of other sources all are offences and are dealt with accordingly. If you are not sure about this, then speak to your class leader.

University of Westminster Quality & Standards statement
