Objectives
This assessment item relates to course learning outcomes numbers 1, 2, 3 and 5.
Purpose
This is an individual assessment task in which students will examine critical issues related to
business and management context. The purpose of the task is to assist you in gaining a greater
understanding of the internal contextual factors that impact on a business and the way that
decisions are made in an organisation.
Before starting this assessment please read the marking criteria (in a separate document) and
refer to other resources provided on the Moodle site for this course.
Description
As Masters students, you are required to engage in research as per the Australia Quality
Framework (AQF) guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. 1. Students
need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the understanding of recent
developments in a discipline and/or area of professional practice, and 2. Students must
demonstrate knowledge of research principles and methods applicable to a field of work
and/or learning”.
This unit has a number of required weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and
business publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent
developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the ability to engage in
appropriate research, students should read and utilise these texts and journals and
publications. As Masters students, you are expected to research beyond this minimum
standard through additional texts, journals and studies to demonstrate an ability to engage
in independent research.
Details
You are required to select an organisation that will help you to illustrate your understanding
of the concepts and theories discussed in topics 1-5 of this course. The organisation you
choose will also be the subject of analysis for assessment task 2, so ensure that you can find
(and appropriately reference) a satisfactory amount of information regarding the
organisation you choose.
You will then prepare an essay that demonstrates awareness and understanding of the
concepts and theories discussed in this course in relation to the organisation you have chosen.
The course coordinator has prepared a video that explains the requirements of the task in
greater detail, along with several other useful tips about the assignment, and this video is
available on the Moodle site.
The marking criteria is also provided on the Moodle site as a separate document; however, in
summary, your assessment will be marked based on how well it addresses the following areas.
Students are to demonstrate knowledge of the subject matter by:




Defining key terms and utilising the theories and concepts presented in topics 1-5
Ability to explain major domestic and international contextual factors and how they
affect business structures and strategy.
Demonstrating a breadth and quality of research by using a minimum of 12-16
academic sources.
Correctly using of the APA in text referencing system to correctly citing academic
sources.
These are the minimum requirements as outlined in the marking criteria. However, students
should note that satisfactorily meeting the minimum requirements will typically only result in
the minimum pass grade being awarded. Higher grades will be awarded for students that
exceed these minimum requirements. See the marking criteria for further details.
Your attention is drawn to the University’s stated position on plagiarism. THE WORK OF
OTHERS, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE ASSIGNMENT MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO ITS SOURCE (a
full list of references must be submitted as part of the assessment).
MGMT20144 ASSESSMENT ITEM 1 – MARKING RUBRIC
Note: This is an illustration of the marking criteria that will be used in the Turnitin system. To see your marks on the criteria, open your assignment through turnitin and click on the marking criteria button.
The markers will provide feedback throughout your assignment in the ‘Grademark’ view in Turnitin. You can access this by clicking on the small blue pencil icon next to your assignment submission.
While there is no set rule for what your similarity index should be, you should aim for a similarity score that is less than 20\%. It is possible that you could have a higher level if you have a very long reference
list though. The main thing to look out for is WHERE the similarity is being shown. If there is a high level of similarity found in the body of the assignment, you will probably lose marks for not presenting
your own ideas. A high level of similarity in the body of your assignment may significantly affect your marks for each of the criteria, as marks are given based on original text and appropriately referenced
text only. It is suggested that you reduce the use of direct quotes from other sources wherever possible. Markers will analyse the similarity score reported by Turnitin on a case by case basis
