However, please note that this feedback is limited to recommendations on improving your work. Lecturers will not confirm any grades or marks. The feedback can be one-to-one or in-group sessions.
Although you will be guided throughout the module by your lecturer, you can get extra support for your assignment, just make an appointment with the ACE team for any language, research and study skills issues and/or talk, email the Computing ACE expert for any advice on how to approach your assignment.

This is an individual assignment. You are required to write a critical report using the following title:
“A Critical Evaluation of the Big Data Approach to Car Fuel’s Data Analytics”
The aim of this research and report is to critically analyse Big Data approaches to Car Data Analysis as implemented in Assignment 1 using Tableau. You should discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the approach of Big Data Analytics from a technical and business perspective (please refer to the marking guidance in the Marking Criteria).
You are also required to discuss the Big Data Analytics method/tools you have applied in producing the output required in Assignment 1. You should provide a rationale and justification for your choices, supported by the relevant academic literature.
The word count for this report is 1000 words.
Don’t exceed the word count
You need to state the word count at the end of their assignment. 10% over the stated word count is permitted without penalty.
If students go beyond this, then there is a penalty of 5 marks for every additional 10% beyond the word count with a maximum of a 15-mark penalty reduction.
There is no specific penalty for submitting a piece which is below the word count, but please note that shorter submissions are likely to attract poorer grades, particularly where they lack the necessary depth of analysis.
Tables and figures (e.g. diagrams, graphs, photographs, etc) may be used as evidence to support academic argument. They are mostly used in report writing. However, it is important that tables and figures are used purposefully (i.e. with good reasons) and when appropriate. They should also be referenced correctly.
How do you calculate the word count?
The word count includes the Abstract or Executive Summary and all in-text citations. The word count does not include the Bibliography and Appendices.
Please note that Appendices should only include supplementary information, not information critical to your work.
|Use of pictures/images:
It is mandatory that you add the following statement to your assignment: ‘disclosure: diagrams, pictures or any other images used in this assignment are for educational purposes only’.
Although images, diagrams and photographs etc..can be used in assignments, they MUST be referenced. However, you can access the following websites (copyright-friendly):
Free photos for commercial and private use – no attribution necessary. Some photos may come from other websites, such as Shutterstock, which may not fall under public domain – check each photo to ensure that it is public domain.
· Photos Public Domain
Search public domain clip art and photos by category. All photos on this site were taken by the author and released as public domain.
The Picdrome gallery is divided by categories (e.g. Abstract, Food & Drink, Nature, Technology, etc.). You may also search for specific images, but the search will take you to a custom Google search of Picdrome, which makes viewing the photos a bit more difficult.
· Ars Publik
Browse images under categories such as medical, advertisements, people, sports, space, etc.
· Public Domain Images
Browse by category or search for images. Varied categories; the site also includes vintage photography and space images.
