LO1: Demonstrate appropriate academic and professional communication skills Assessment Brief

Produce a 2000-word piece of reflective writing that describes, evaluates, and analyses an aspect of your student life so far in UoBM.

Choose only one of the following aspects of your UoBM student life for your reflective writing:

  1. Your completion of independent study tasks such as written homework or research
  2. Your participation in group activities such as collaborative tasks or discussions
  3. Involvement and participation in your lessons/lectures

Following Gibbs’ 6-element reflective model (covered in weeks 2 to 4 on the course), students are expected to reflect on the chosen aspect and produce a piece of work that has an Introduction and the six elements namely description, feelings/thoughts, evaluation, analysis, conclusion, and action plan.

Your work will be scored based on the following criteria which are equally weighted (25 marks each).

  • Task fulfilment (25 marks): Response with relevant, supportive ideas; evidence of reflective practice/elements; evidence of learning and action plan.
  • Coherence and cohesion (25%): Organisation with clear and logical progression; linking and signposting; paragraph structure and development.
  • Language (25%): Range and accuracy of vocabulary; range and accuracy of sentence structures; formality.
  • Academic conventions (25%): Evidence of reading and use of sources; understanding of in- text citations and reference list; mechanics in writing (spelling, formatting, punctuation etc.). Total: 100 Marks

Minimum Secondary Research Source Requirements:

(Delete as appropriate)

Level 3 - It is expected that the Reference List will contain at least five sources. As a MINIMUM the Reference List should include three academic books.

You MUST use at least one from the following list. You should also use other sources relevant to your work.

Specific Assessment Criteria: (Develop specific assessment requirements for each classification, using the terminology in the General Assessment Guidelines for the level in question.)

(Please note that the General Assessment Criteria will also apply. Please see section 16)

First class (70% and above):

Students will provide an excellent/outstanding reflective piece of writing containing ideas that are analytical and evaluative. The student will clearly respond to the reflective writing prompt using the structure as taught in the Communication Skills module. The reflection will be easy to understand and the student will make developed points which are analytical and increasingly insightful in nature. The conclusion/action plan created will be highly reflective, evaluative and well-developed. Sources will be reliable and used extremely effectively as evidence to support the points made in the reflection. Academic writing style, English and referencing will be of an excellent standard.

Upper Second Class 2(1) (60-69%)

Students will provide a good reflective piece of writing which follows the structure taught within the Communication Skills module to a good degree of accuracy. Logical points for improvement will be identified following the evaluation and will be beginning to be analysed in some detail. The student will have identified the most relevant points from the sources selected, the majority of which will be taken from reliable and academic sources. Academic writing style, English and referencing will be of a good standard.

Lower Second Class 2(2) (50-59%):

Students will provide a sound piece of reflective writing which makes a clear attempt to respond to the reflective prompt task. The reflective writing piece will be mostly structured using the structure taught during the Communication Skills module with some variation. The student will have made some logical and reflective points which are descriptive in nature. The student will have selected sound evidence from reliable and academic sources. Students will have identified and explained some relevant points for improvement and included these in the action plan. Academic writing style, English and referencing will be sound.

Third class (40-49%):

Students will provide a satisfactory piece of reflective writing which makes an adequate attempt to respond to the task prompt. The student will have shown some understanding of the reflective writing structure and will have made some satisfactory attempt to describe a relevant situation and respond to it. The student will give some satisfactory points for improvement within their evaluation/action plan and give basic/straightforward explanations. Evidence from sources will be present and used somewhat appropriately. Academic writing style, English and referencing will be satisfactory.

Fail (39% and below): Students who do not meet the requirements of a third class grade will not successfully complete the assessment activity
