Assessment

Overview - There is one marked final summative assessment in this module (consisting of 2 tasks). Both elements must be submitted to pass the module. Before the summative assessment there is a formative assignment (not marked) which will help you to do the summative, to ensure you are ‘on the right track’.

The summative video and report will be marked against the marking criteria in the table at the end of this document (titled “Marking and Feedback Rubric”).

(See assessment guidelines for video and report below)

Formative assessment

Students work individually and must decide on an entrepreneurial opportunity for a business start-up. Each student works on all 7 domains. The formative assessment is a video and a report. (See assessment guidelines for video and report below)

Each student emails their seminar tutor a copy of their draft report which includes a hyperlink to the YouTube video. The report should include a bibliography.

Each student will be given feedback on their formative assessment.

Summative assessment (100% marks)

The formative assessment is developed further to produce the final video and report.  Students will develop and present the contents of their domains. Each video is 9 minutes, and the structure is as follows:

1 minute for the introduction

1 minute per domain (7 minutes)

1 minute conclusion

In addition, each student submits a word document report with a word count of 1000 (+/- 10%) excluding bibliography, via Turnitin. This should also include a hyperlink to the video. The report should include a bibliography.
