Literature used and referencing    In the report students should demonstrate their wider reading of the topic. Student should not rely only on the main text book or web pages. Relevant journal articles should be considered.                                                             Poor or failing pieces of work may rely on one textbook and/or some ‘google’ articles. Appropriate, accurate and consistent style of referencing should also be taken into account under this heading.    Very little or no use of published work. Poorly referenced if at all.    Some attempt to use external literatures. Poor referencing.    Heavy reliance on very limited sources. Little evidence of any attempt to collect a broader range of information and literature. Poor referencing.    An adequate use of available sources. Correct referencing for the most part.    A good range of literature used. The answer demonstrates appreciation of their appropriateness. Full and accurate referencing.    An excellent work will have wider reading about the topic. Relevant literatures are used to support an in-depth review and reflection. Full and accurate referencing.
Understanding of Theory    The report should be developed progressively demonstrating students’ understanding of theories and critical issues relevant to the topic. The report should demonstrate students’ ability to appreciate and apply various theories and issues in their discussion and comparison of the impacts    There is no understanding of the theories and no demonstration of ability to apply the theories in the discussion and comparison of the impacts     A referral principle review and reflection will show poor understanding of theories and issues with constant misunderstandings. Referral answers will not consider the issues posed in the assessment brief in a coherent or detailed way.    A poor review and reflection will show limited understanding of theories and issues. A very narrow view and a limited range of issues addressed    Average principle review and reflection will show students’ general understanding of theories and issues. Shows consideration of some of the issues in a reasonably coherent way    Good principle review and reflection will demonstrate students’ appreciation of theories and issues and their application.

Conclusions and recommen-dations    This section relates to the ability of the student to provide a persuasive conclusion and set of recommendations based on the issues raised, arguments and points made in the report. Are the arguments persuasive? Are the conclusions supported by the body of the report?    Little or no argument and very poor conclusions.    Poorly argued and with conclusions that just do not follow from the evidence presented.    Poorly argued with rather unconvincing conclusions. The reader may well doubt that the conclusions are valid.    The work will be reasonably argued but the conclusions will not be entirely convincing from the evidence presented. The reader will have some doubt as to their validity.     The work will be soundly argued and the conclusions will be largely convincing but some doubt could remain in the reader’s mind as to their validity.    The work will be well argued and the conclusions will follow naturally from the evidence presented. No doubt will be left in the reader’s mind as to their validity. A conclusion that contradicts perceived wisdom and is well justified will be particularly welcomed.
