ASSESSMENT INFORMATION

Assessment

Assessment Component 1

 

 

 

 

 

Article Review:

40%

2000 Words

Submission deadline: 29th December 2020 via Turnitin

Make a review of the article provided. Using critical thinking provide the core content, conclusions and recommendations from this article and critique it in light of management and leadership in the sector. (Article will be provided by TTP in week 3)

Assessment Component 2

Essay 3000 words

 

10th May 2021 via Turnitin

Prepare and present an essay which addresses the following statement:

‘Young people have been hit hard by recent events. How can the Youth and Community Sector best respond to this and what role should Leaders and Managers take in this?’

You are also required to submit the following:

  • A final front cover checklist (see Moodle).
  • Reference list in alphabetical order following the Harvard style, including journals and websites.
  • Appendices:

a) Evidence of completion of Turnitin assessment for the Essay and the Report

b) Any relevant documents from the workplace linked to your report.

Presentation of work

Your module work should be typed or word-processed and should conform to academic standards for postgraduate work. The conventions of in-text referencing and of reference lists should be used, additional information is available on UEL Moodle, in Cottrell’s Study Skills Handbook and in Pears and Shield’s ‘Cite them right’.  Please remember that failure to follow standard academic conventions when preparing a piece of work will affect your mark.

Word counts are allowed a margin of +/- 10% (for example, a 5000-word task can be under or over by up to 500 words, giving a minimum of 4500 words and a maximum of 5500 words). You will be penalised if your work is substantially under or over length (allowing for any margin) and you could be failed for that assessment (This is also the case for assignments for all other modules, throughout the duration of your studies).

Learning outcomes assessed:

This module is assessed through one Essay and one Report. This table shows how these learning outcomes relate to the assessment tasks of this module:

Assessment criteria:

Further guidance on writing assessment criteria can be found here: https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/knowledge-hub/cebe-guide-writing-assessment-criteria-briefing-guide-no-06

How to submit your work:

You submit your entire portfolio via Turnitin links which will be available on the module Moodle site. Submissions for this component of this Module must be submitted according to these instructions. If you fail to submit this component as directed, in accordance with the guidance provided on the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle), a mark of 0 will be awarded for the component.

REASSESSMENT ARRANGEMENTS

If you do not submit your portfolio by the due date you should arrange an appointment to meet with your Academic Supervisor to clarify the situation and identify your best options, moving forward.

For students who do not pass summative assignments, there will be resubmission opportunities. The guidance for these tasks will be made available to students shortly after the marks for the original submissions are released. Information will be available on Moodle and there will be taught sessions/workshops to support resubmitting students.

LATE SUBMISSIONS

We strongly suggest that you try to submit all coursework by the deadline set as meeting deadlines is expected in employment.  However, in our regulations, UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24 hours after the deadline.  The deadline will be published in your module guide. Coursework, which is submitted late, but within 24 hours of the deadline, will be assessed but subjected to a fixed penalty of 5% of the total marks available (as opposed to marks obtained).  However, you have to be very careful when you are submitting your assessment.  If you submit your work twice, once using the original deadline link and then again using the late submission link, your assignment will be graded as late with the 5% deduction.

Please note that if you submit twice, once before the deadline and once during the 24 hour late period, then the second submission will be marked and 5% deducted.

This rule only applies to coursework.  It does not apply to examinations, presentations, performances, practical assessments or viva voce examinations.  If you miss these for a genuine reason, then you will need to apply for extenuating circumstances, or accept that you will receive a zero mark.

Extenuating Circumstances are circumstances which:

  • impair your examination performance prevent you from attending examinations or other types of assessment, or
  • prevent you from submitting coursework or other assessed work by the scheduled deadline date, or within 24 hours of the deadline date

Such circumstances rarely occur and would normally be:

  • unforeseeable - in that you could have no prior knowledge of the event concerned, and
  • unpreventable - in that you could do nothing reasonably in your power to prevent such an event, and
  • expected to have a serious impact on performance

You can make an application for extenuating circumstances by following this link: https://uelac.sharepoint.com/StudentSupport/Pages/Extenuation-information.aspx

RETURN OF WORK AND FEEDBACK

Arrangements for the publication of results is stated in the Course Handbook.  Formal results are ONLY available in UEL Direct, and will be published within 8 working days of the Board, where results are formally confirmed. Any other results are provisional / indicative but not approved.

You will receive feedback throughout your course through the following:

 

one-to-one or individualised (i.e. tutorials, conversations with supervisors, or individualised comments on assignments)

 

generic feedback (i.e. use of rubrics, ‘Quickmarks’ in Turnitin or standardised forms)

 

peer feedback (i.e. feedback from other students)

 

informal feedback (i.e. through in-class discussions or online forums)

 

self-evaluation (i.e. online checklists or reflective submissions)

 

other (see below)

 

 


Feedback and students’ marks should be provided within 15 working days of the due date for summative work (i.e. work that counts towards the final course grade) and formative work (i.e. work that is developmental and designed to help you improve).

Whilst feedback will be given on draft/formative work, it shouldn’t be assumed that every aspect will be identified.

ONLINE SYSTEM FAILURES

If you experience a problem submitting your work online, you should notify your lecturer/tutor by email immediately.  However, deadlines are not extended unless there is a significant systems problem with Turnitin.  UEL has specific plans in place to address these issues.  If UEL finds that the issue with the system was significant, you will receive an email notifying you of the issue and that you have been given a 24- hour extension.  If you don’t receive any email that specifically states you have been given an extension, then the original deadline has not been changed.

Best advice: Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your assessments electronically.

REFERENCING

As a student you will be taught how to write correctly referenced essays.  UEL`s standard Harvard referencing system is from Cite Them Right. Cite them Right is the standard Harvard referencing style at UEL for all Schools, however professional body requirements will take precedence for instance the School of Psychology which uses the APA system.

ASSESSMENT FEEDBACK

WHAT IS FEEDBACK?

Feedback is crucial for your learning and it is an important part of the academic cycle.  It tells you what the strengths are of your work, what its weaknesses are and how it can be improved.

WHY IS FEEDBACK IMPORTANT?

Feedback is the most effective way to: Help you understand how to succeed in your assessments; Help you produce better work for the future; Signpost you to other resources for assistance.

If you pay attention to feedback, particularly where the same comment is made in several modules, you can use the information to improve.

WHERE DO I GET FEEDBACK?

  • When a tutor comments on your answers in seminars/lectures/workshops
  • General comment on assessment performance in lectures and seminars
  • General comment on questions prepared for seminars
  • When another student makes comments on your presentation
  • When you produce practice questions for a tutor who gives comments
  • When you receive written comments on your work submitted either as coursework or exam
  • When you look at general feedback on module performance on UEL Direct.
  • When you see your Academic Adviser with all your assessment feedback for general advice.  You should always do this after each assessment period.
