Assessment Component
Details of Assignment:
You must achieve an overall module mark of 40% to pass the module. Assessment components are as follows: Coursework 1 (40%) – assesses learning outcomes 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6.  Group problem-based activities (these take place during tutorials except the final tutorial which is a case study drop in session). Each problem-based activity will be introduced in the lecture.
Tutorial Preparation
Group allocation will take place in the first lecture for this module. It is the responsibility of each group to arrange convenient times to meet outside of class contact time. During this period, as a group, you will discuss and agree each members’ role in relation to the problem that your group has been set. For example, what information is each member of the group going to research? Once goals have been agreed, each member will (in their own time) research and record information in preparation for the upcoming tutorial.
Tutorial Procedure
Your group will be assessed in ALL tutorial sessions within the module (except the final tutorial which is a case study drop in session). Each group will be given a specific timeslot which all members of the group must attend on a weekly basis (see the timetable in the ‘Module Essentials’ block on Moodle).
Coursework Instructions and Marking Scheme: In small groups you will be provided with a problem. There will be 3 problems in total over the course of the semester. Each problem will be introduced in lectures. You will have a period of time to prepare for each tutorial and must attend the tutorial fully prepared to address the issue that has been presented to you.
You will be marked individually on what you bring to the tutorial and how you explain/deliver the information/session, therefore if you do not attend the tutorial or are unable to deliver the information you will get a mark of ZERO for that session. There is a ZERO tolerance for lateness and individuals who turn up late for their scheduled session will not be permitted to take part. As such, they will be given a mark of ZERO for that week’s tutorial.
To gain marks turn up well prepared and on time to each tutorial session.
If you are unable to attend a tutorial session and are eligible for an extension, deferral or permitted absence you must contact the departmental office (RCG16) or your level tutor as soon as possible and BEFORE the date of the tutorial. Coursework 2 (60%) – assesses learning outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6.  1 x 2500 word written case study (document containing case study question can be found in the ‘Assessment’ block on Moodle). Reassessment / Resubmission of failed component(s) Resit Coursework (100%) CW1: 30 minute problem based consultation (40%) CW2: 1 x 2500 word case study (60%)
Details of each resit assessment component can be found in the ‘Assessment’ block on Moodle. This information includes guidance on the requirements for each assessment, the help and support available to you, the submission or attendance details, grade criteria, arrangements for return of work and feedback opportunities.
Please note that if you are unable to submit coursework or attend an assessment e.g. test, examination, presentation or assessed laboratory session you may be eligible to apply for an extension or a deferral. Please refer to the Extenuating Circumstances guidance for students at the following link: https://share.coventry.ac.uk/students/Registry/Pages/Deferrals-and-Extension.aspx

Help and Support
General Assessment Help
 Reading lists are provided in the MID and Module Guide which is found in the ‘Module Essentials’ block on Moodle. There will be useful journal articles uploaded to the ‘Assessment’ block on Moodle relating to each problem-based learning activity. However, students are encouraged to show initiative by reading beyond the material provided.
 Grading criteria is available for students on Moodle in the ‘Assessment’ block.
 A student may ask the Module Leader, or any member of the Module team, brief questions related to the module assessment at any appropriate time. For example in taught classes (such as lectures and tutorials), by arranging a meeting with the Module Leader via email, or by emailing short queries to the academic member of staff who is running your tutorials. If contact details for teaching assistants are unavailable, please direct queries to the Module Leader. Staff contact details may be found in your module guide and in the ‘Module Essentials’ block on Moodle.
 There is a ‘Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)’ block on Moodle which contains a document that answers FAQs that students have. There is also the option to post questions in the general discussion section on Moodle which is found in the ‘News and Updates’ block. Questions posted here can be directed at Module staff or students. The questions directed at Module staff will be answered by the Module Leader.
Specific Help Available
Coursework 1 (40%)
 During the first lecture students will receive all the background information about the tutorial structure and marking.

Students should not email coursework items to a lecturer.
 Resources are available to support the case study in the ‘Case Study Resources’ block on Moodle.
Please note that if you are unable to submit coursework or attend an assessment e.g. test, examination, presentation or assessed laboratory session you may be eligible to apply for an extension or a deferral. Please refer to the Extenuating Circumstances guidance for students at the following link: https://share.coventry.ac.uk/students/Registry/Pages/Deferrals-and-Extension.aspx
Deferral or Extension requests must be made before the due date of the assignment and must be accompanied by appropriate evidence.
Late or non-submission of CW
 Normal penalties for late/ non-submission apply. Work that is submitted late, without an extension or deferral having been granted, will receive a mark of ZERO (students will normally be eligible for a resit attempt).
 Work that is not submitted or exams not attended will be recorded as Absent (ABS) (students may not be permitted a resit attempt).
 If you do not attend the tutorial or are unable to deliver the information you will get a MARK OF ZERO for that session.
 Please note that if you are unable to submit coursework or attend an assessment (e.g. assessed tutorial) you may be eligible to apply for an extension or a deferral. Please refer to the Extenuating Circumstances guidance for students at the following link: https://share.coventry.ac.uk/students/Registry/Pages/Deferrals-and-Extension.aspx
 Deferral or Extension requests must be made before the due date of the assignment and must be accompanied by appropriate evidence.

Plagiarism and Cheating
The University takes very seriously any attempt to cheat in coursework or examinations by any student and if a case is proven this can result in expulsion from the University. Cheating refers to plagiarism, collusion, taking unauthorised materials into an examination (this list is not exhaustive). Please refer to the essential information within your Student Handbook.
Self-plagiarism or reuse of work previously submitted
You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or for another qualification of this university, unless this is specifically provided for in your assignment brief or specific course or module information. Where earlier work by you is citable, i.e. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently will also be considered to be self-plagiarism.
Self-plagiarism is unacceptable because you cannot gain credit for the same work twice.
In certain instances, it may be permitted for a student to utilise their own work for a second assessment (e.g. a resit attempt where they are improving their first attempt at the same assignment, a lab report or project where they may be using their project proposal information). However, this needs to be explicitly highlighted and specifically explained to the Module Leader prior to submission to avoid any potential issues.
Referencing
Coventry University have adopted the Harvard Referencing System as the standard format for citations and references. There is a Centre for Academic Writing (located next to the library) which can provide detailed support on the Harvard System. There are useful reference guides on the Harvard Style available in the ‘Assessment’ block on Moodle. It is advised that you download and keep these guides to refer to whilst writing your coursework.
