This module will be assessed by two 1,500 word assignments (each 50 per cent of total). The assessment is designed to enables students to demonstrate knowledge relating to the learning outcomes as set out in this module handbook. For example, each assignment title is constructed so that a good answer will be able to incorporate information from across the module, rather than from a single lecture or seminar session. Each essay should have a clear structure, with an introduction setting out the aims of the assignment. The body of the essay should contain information of specific relevance to the assignment topic. A critical approach is encouraged. Answers should cite the work of appropriate authors, who must be referenced. Secondary citation, where students have not read the original work, should be made clear, for example, ‘Miller (2001) cited in Armstrong (2009)’. Students are encouraged to include their own ideas/opinions providing they are part of a reasoned argument and fully supported by facts, figures, references, etc. The conclusion should draw together the argument set out in the text. A substantial bibliography, reflecting the reading done for the essay, will be expected. Assessment 1 To be handed in electronically via TurnitIn Week 7
