Credit will be given to students who relate their argument to the effects of policy on business where appropriate.
In assessing your work, tutors are guided by the following general criteria:
First class (70): Analytical throughout. Strong and thorough focus on the question. Development of own ideas based on a wide range of literature and sources that have been critically analysed and assessed. Must be properly referenced and sourced. Demonstration of ability to set answer within a broader context and use of pertinent examples where appropriate to demonstrate more general principles. A well-integrated, logically argued, internally consistent piece of work.
Upper second (sixties): Significant evidence of wider reading and clear identification of problems raised by the question. Critical discussion of most key areas of the question that makes good use of the literature.
Lower second (fifties): largely analytical in nature (the more the balance shifts towards description, the nearer to the lower end of this range will be the mark). Will cover many of the key areas but could be some omissions and some minor errors.
Third (forties): Largely descriptive, basic answers with little evidence of further reading. A broad understanding of the subject area but possibly some confusions, inconsistencies or errors.
Below forty: limited reading. Inappropriate choice of content or theory and absence of critical, analytical thought. Major errors and/or misunderstanding of assignment.
IMPORTANT!!! Please read the information below.
“Plagiarism is the action of using or copying someone else’s idea or work and pretending you thought of it or created it.” (A Collins’ Dictionary definition).
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IS MEANT BY PLAGIARISM.
