Assessment 2
(AS2)
Assessment 2 is an Evidence-based analysis: This means you should support and critically analyse arguments made within your essay / assignment / report / video by providing proper justifications from academic articles and academic books (sourced via DMU library) & from other creditable sources mentioned in your Source Selection guide on your Assessment Support folder BB page. Quality sources normally include academic journals and academic books and credible reports. You must also cite and reference your sources using Harvard Referencing (Cite Them Right). There will be guidance on your DMU Blackboard to help you to consider the credibility of your research and to help you with Harvard Referencing. For support with critical reading and writing, how to approach literature reviews, Harvard referencing, and other academic skills please visit Centre for learning and Study Support (CLaSS)
It is compulsory to use Harvard Style Referencing (Cite Them Right)
DMU will use Harvard (Cite Them Right) as the university Harvard referencing style for all students. https://library.dmu.ac.uk/refguide/harvard
Academic assessments are SNAPSHOTS of what you know. Not “everything” that you know.
So be selective, be strategic and showcase

Assessment 2 (AS2) Tips: How to improve your 2nd assessment (AS2):
Cover page, list of contents, list of tables, list of figures and the end Harvard Reference list are not included in your final word count.
1- PLEASE check the Rubric before starting your assignment 2. This will help you to identify the key and important factors for each marking criteria.
2- You MUST use main titles and sub-titles to divide your arguments/ chapters/ assignments to a number of clear sections. This will help the examiner/moderator to follow your arguments better.
3- You MUST use academic sources such as academic text-books and academic articles from academic journals and credible sources to support your arguments.
17 | P a g e
4- DO NOT use only one or a very limited number of sources as your citations. You need to use a good mixture of sources. Please check your BB / Assessment Briefs Folder / Source Selection Guideline.
5- Your Rubric shows “Depth of Academic Knowledge 30%”. This means you need to show how you could develop your Academic Knowledge. Depth of Academic Knowledge will be developed by reading academic sources. Reading and citing ONLY ordinary non-academic sources will NOT add value into your assignment.
6- Your Rubric shows “Application of Theory and Critical Evaluation 30%”. This section will be developed by reading and citing academic sources (academic text-books and academic articles). You can use official websites or credible sources to gain numbers and figures to support your main arguments. Please check your BB / Assessment Briefs Folder / Source Selection Guideline.
7- You MUST save your assignment as your P number ONLY (choose your file name as your P number).
8- You need to answer the question and apply your academic knowledge (Strategic Management) to support your arguments. You gained this academic knowledge from Lecture 1 to Lecture 22.

How to Submit your Assessment 2 (AS2):
The assessment must be submitted by 12:00 noon (UK Time) on 08/April/2022. No paper copies are required. You can access the submission link through the module web.
• Your coursework will be given a zero mark if you do not submit a copy through Turnitin. Please take care to ensure that you have fully submitted your work.
• Please ensure that you have submitted your work using the correct file format, unreadable files will receive a mark of zero. The Faculty accepts Microsoft Office and PDF documents, unless otherwise advised by the module leader.
• All work submitted after the submission deadline without a valid and approved reason will be subject to the University regulations on late submissions.
o If an assessment is submitted up to 14 days late the mark for the work will be capped at the pass mark of 40 per cent for undergraduate modules or 50 per cent for postgraduate modules
o If an assessment is submitted beyond 14 calendar days late the work will receive a mark of zero per cent
o The above applies to a student’s first attempt at the assessment. If work submitted as a reassessment of a previously failed assessment task is submitted later than the deadline the work will immediately be given a mark of zero per cent
o If an assessment which is marked as pass/fail rather than given a percentage mark is submitted later than the deadline, the work will immediately be marked as a fail
• The University wants you to do your best. However, we know that sometimes events happen which mean that you can’t submit your coursework by the deadline – these events should be beyond your control and not easy to predict. If this happens, you can apply for an extension to your deadline for up to two weeks, or if you need longer, you can apply for a deferral, which takes you to the next assessment period (for example, to the re-sit period following the main Assessment Boards). You must apply before the deadline. You will find information about applying for extensions and deferrals here.
• Students MUST keep a copy and/or an electronic file of their assignment.
• Checks will be made on your work using anti-plagiarism software and approved plagiarism checking websites.
Return of Marked Work Assessment 2 (AS2):
You can expect to have feedback returned to you on 12/May/2022 at 12:00 noon UK time (20 working days). If for any reason there is a delay you will be kept informed. Marks and feedback will be provided online on your Turnitin. It is important that you access the feedback you receive as this will help to make improvements to your later work, you can request a meeting with your Module Leader or Personal Tutor to discuss your feedback in more detail.
Marks will have been internally moderated only, and will therefore be provisional; your mark will be formally agreed later in the year once the external examiner has completed their review. More information on assessment and feedback can be found here.

Academic Integrity:
In submitting a piece of work for assessment it is essential that you understand the University's requirements for maintaining academic integrity and ensure that the work does not contravene University regulations. Some examples of behaviour that would not be considered acceptable include plagiarism, re-use of previously assessed work, collusion with others and purchasing your assignment from a third party. For more information on academic offences, bad academic practice, and academic penalties, please read chapter four of our academic regulations.
Academic Support and Your Well-being:
Referencing is the process of acknowledging other people’s work when you have used it in your assignment or research. It allows the reader to locate your source material as quickly and easily as possible so that they can read these sources themselves and verify the validity of your arguments. Referencing provides the link between what you write and the evidence on which it is based.
You identify the sources that you have used by citing them in the text of your assignment (called citations or in-text citations) and referencing them at the end of your assignment (called the reference list or end-text citations). The reference list only includes the sources cited in your text. The main referencing guide can be found here and includes information on the basics of referencing and achieving good academic practice. It also has tabs for the specific referencing styles depending on whether you require Harvard style used in business or OSCOLA style used by the Law school.
The University has a wealth of support services available to students; further information can be obtained from Student Gateway, the Student Advice Centre, Library and Learning Services and, most importantly, your Personal Tutor. If you are struggling with your assessments and/or deadlines please do seek help as soon as possible so that appropriate support and guidance can be identified and put in place for you. More information can be found on the Healthy DMU pages.
