Assessment 1: Business and Industry Research Project (30%)

Research the industry and the business that you are going to go to for your industry placement. Provide as much information about the business as you can, imagining that you are applying for a job with them. Where possible research people within the organisation to determine their background, interests, achievements and connections. All of this information may be useful to you once you arrive at the placement.

Search the media to discover any events, incidences, controversies and any other positive or negative press regarding the business, their competitors, employees, associates, products, services and the industry.

Prepare a 1,000 word report on your research with appendices and sources of information. Do not simply regurgitate the articles and data. You need to analyse and interpret the information and present it in a professional, succinct and informative manner. Do not speculate! Consider the integrity of the source of the information and the relevance of the information for your purpose.

Students will not be permitted to start their placement until the assessment is submitted and is deemed satisfactory by the course coordinator.

Written expression

Sentences and paragraphs are well structured and clear so the reader can focus on what is written.   Each paragraph has a topic sentence that indicates the subject matter

Generally well organised.  Paragraphs present a complete argument.  Minor lapses in structure, such as incomplete or unnecessarily complex sentences, may force the reader to pause and reflect on the meaning of the text.

Generally well organised, but some sentences are poorly structured so the reader must stop to reflect on the meaning of the text.  Many paragraphs lack topic sentences or have poor flow so the main points and linkages among explanatory text are not clear

Ineffective sentence and paragraph structure makes the reader review the same text several times.  Some statements are unclear even after multiple reviews.  The reader is often unable to understand the author’s message

 

Formatting

The structure of the report is easy to follow.  Document format, headings and page layout are well designed

Good report structure. Minor lapses in document layout and design, such as inconsistencies in formatting, missing headings, lack of page numbers, etc

The lapses in document design affect the ability by the reader to follow the document

Confusing document structure making it difficult to follow

Minimal errors in grammar, spelling and/or punctuation that do not impair communication

Errors in grammar, spelling and/or punctuation detract from the quality of the text, and impair communication

Many errors in grammar, spelling and/or punctuation make reading the text difficult and communication is severely impaired
