General Assessment Criteria
The criteria below detail the areas, which will be taken into account when the assignment is marked.
To address the subject satisfactorily, a typed format is mandatory. Pass assignments are expected to be legible, tidy, well organized and written in clear understandable English.
High grades [70%, 75%, +80%] need to demonstrate sustained coherent analytical ability. A systematic approach to analysis and evaluation is required for grades 60% to 85% – for grades at the higher end of the scale, integration and synthesis is a requirement. The quality of the arguments used to develop and support prescriptions/recommendations are, in our view, the essential test of integration.
The assignment is to be submitted as a single written report of 2000 words.
Proper referencing and citation should be observed. APA Referencing should be followed.
