Weighting: This assessment will be marked out of 100. It is worth 25% of the total marks awarded for the course. For those electing the group work option, 10% of the 25% will be awarded for the first two pieces of work. You will either be awarded the full 10% or 0%, depending on the adequacy of your responses to these two pieces of work. In gaining the full 10% you should outline the pros and cons of, or opposing stances to, the question you have been assigned, without necessarily forming an opinion on your favoured approach. 15% of the 25% will be awarded for your written report. For those not electing to participate in group work, the full 25% will be allocated to the written report. Due date: For those electing the group work option, your outline of issues must be posted on your team forum by 11.55 pm on Saturday 2 May 2015. Your response to the issue outlines of your other team members must be posted on your team forum by 11.55 pm on Saturday 9 May 2015. For everyone, whether electing the group option or not, your written assignment must reach the Open Polytechnic by 11.55 pm on Tuesday 19 May 2015. Length: For those electing the group option, the first two responses are required to be no longer than one page each. You may use bullet points, particularly in the second response to highlight your agreement, or not, with the key matters that you consider need to be included. Your written report needs to be succinct to cover the four matters. Although you are not restricted in response to the four questions raised on what you might say, we would not expect your report would extend beyond four pages. For those electing the group option, you can refer to matters raised by the other three forum members, provided you explain those matters in your own words. 2 Copyright © The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand Instructions 1.
