You will be assessed on your:-
1. References and Bibliography:
Is the project well referenced? Is the citation system consistent? Do all sources cited in it appear in the bibliography? Does the bibliography contain all necessary details? Penalties will be imposed on plagiarists.
2. Presentation and Grammar:
Is the presentation of an appropriate standard? Is it the required length? Are there numerous spelling, grammatical or punctuation mistakes?
3. Evidence of research, and sophistication and originality of arguments:
Is there evidence of extensive research? Are the arguments sophisticated and original or are they mainly reproductions of arguments from existing literature?
4. Clarity of the argument, strength of analysis, and ability to use and integrate sources:
Is the writing well structured and integrated? Does the argument flow logically? Are arguments supported by evidence? Are there any sweeping generalisations or unexamined assumptions?
You are free to discuss the project with other students but you must write up your project individually. Severe penalties (up to 20 points, i.e. 100% of the full mark of the assignment) will be imposed on students for plagiarism. There is a fair amount of research expected for this project and students are advised to start collecting material for their project as soon as possible.
Weight: 20 per cent of the final mark.
Due date: Tuesday 5 May 2013 by 5pm.
