You may need to show this to tutor at some point so notes should be clear and written inEnglish.This is an important requirement. There may be circumstances where it is difficult to arriveat a mark for your work. If this is so you may be asked to submit your file within 3 working days andpossibly meet with your tutor to answer questions on your submission.Explanation of submission requirements and further guidanceAssessments are subject to a word limit to ensure consistency of approach across allmodules. Your work should not exceed the limit indicated (excluding references andappendices). Do not feel that you have to “achieve” this word count in your work. What isimportant is that the work satisfies the stated learning outcomes which are articulated throughthe assessment criteria (see following page).1|P a g e A s s e s s m e n t B r i e fi n g f o r S t u d e n t s
Care is taken to ensure that work has been marked correctly. Checks are conducted by botha second lecturer and an independent expert from outside the University on batches of work.Your work will not be returned to you but you will receive detailed feedback explaining howyour mark has been arrived at and how your work could have been improved upon.Alwaysuse the Harvard style referencing system.The University’s Learning InformationServices have produced a series of guides covering a range of topics to support your studiesand develop your academic skills including a guide to Harvard referencingExpensive or elaborate bindings and covers for submissions are not required in mostinstances. (Refer to guidelines however in the case of dissertations).The Business School has a policy of anonymous marking of individual assessments whichapplies to most modules. You should not identify yourself directly in the work you submit andyou may need to use phrases such as “the author of this assignment ....” in the detail of yoursubmission.Avoid academic misconductWarning:Collusion, plagiarism and cheating are very serious offences that can result in astudent being expelled from the University. The Business School has a policy of activelyidentifying students who engage in academic misconduct of this nature and routinely applyingdetection techniques including the use of sophisticated software packages.Avoid Collusion.The Business School encourages group working, however to avoidcollusion always work on your own when completing individual assessments. Do not letfellow students have access to your work at any stage and do not be tempted to access thework of others. Refer to your module tutor if you do not understand or you need furtherguidance.Avoid Plagiarism.You mustuse available and relevant literature to demonstrate yourknowledge of a subject, howeverto avoid plagiarismyou must take great care toacknowledge it properly.Plagiarism is the act of stealing someone else's work and passing itoff as your own. This includes incorporating either unattributed direct quotation(s) orsubstantial paraphrasing from the work of another/others. For this reason it is important thatyou cite all the sources whose work you have drawn on and reference them fully inaccordance with the Harvard referencing standard. (This includes citing any work that youmay have submitted yourself previously).Extensive direct quotations in assessed work is illadvised because it represents a poor writing style, and it could lead to omission errors and aplagiarism offence could be committed accidentally.Avoid the temptation to “commission” work or to cheat in other ways.There aretemptations on the internet for you to take “short cuts”. Do not be tempted to eithercommission work to be completed on your behalf or search for completed past academicwork.When you submit your work you will be required to sign an important declarationthat thesubmission is your own work, any material you have used has been acknowledged and referenced,you have not allowed another student to have access to your work, the work has not been submittedpreviously, etc.2|P a g e A s s e s s m e n t B r i e fi n g f o r S t u d e n t s
