WRITING YOUR ASSIGNMENT:
This assignment must be completed individually.
You must use the Harvard referencing system.
Your work must indicate the number of words you have used. Written assignments must not exceed the specified maximum number of words. When a written assignment is marked, the excessive use of words beyond the word limit is reflected in the academic judgement of the piece of work which results in a lower mark being awarded for the piece of work (regulation 6.74).
Assignment submissions are to be made anonymously. Do not write your name anywhere on your work.

ASSIGNMENT Case Study
The following Trip Advisor review has been received by ‘Terrace at The Dilly’.
GOOOO Reviewed 3 weeks ago
The worst in central London
Service was the worst I have experienced in any restaurant. I mode
a booking for the Afternoon tea almost a month ahead. Called back twice to inform them that one of us is celebrating a birthday. On the day we arrived, they had no knowledge of it. We ordered some drinks but missed out 2 drinks. Juice served very worm with no ice. I asked for the birthday cake they said they con offer, it took so long. The guy who was serving us soid he will check, but he come back with changed clothes and finished his shift without saying anything. So I asked her other colleague to check again ( she knew nothing about the coke), and again she disappeared. Finally, the birthday cake arrived- no candle. Waiter literally threw it on the table. It’s cold cake and doesn’t need cooking, why it took so long? I expected a certain service from Dilly, being in central London and its prestigious building. Below standard restaurant. Don’t promise things, if you con’t deliver them.

ARU’s Generic Assessment Criteria and Marking Standards
Assessment criteria inform the assessment process by providing academic staff with a link between academic standards as set at the level of the award (these are defined in Section 2 of the Academic Regulations) and academic standards at module level. Assessment criteria are written in a language that is both generic and general, reflecting the Generic Learning Outcomes of ARU awards which, in turn, reflect the principal national reference point for academic standards, the Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree- (FHEQ) (QAA, 2014). Awarding Bodies
Assessment criteria are not to be confused with marking schemes. You have been hired as a Hospitality Consultant to assist this restaurant to review their customer service operational procedures based on the above customer service journey scenario. You are to write a consultancy report using the service blueprint tool in order to highlight the weak areas from this experience.
Assessment criteria identify student achievement of generic learning outcomes in the broadest possible terms by correlating three key variables - level of learning, marking standards, and student achievement - in a taxonomy of statements about assessment.
is as identified in the FHEQ and ARU’s level Academic Regulations, ranging from Level 3 (Access), through Levels 4-6 (Undergraduate) to Level 7 (Postgraduate). A separate table is provided for each of the five levels.
are identified by means of a percentage scale covering the mark of 0% (zero) and ten-mark bands: 1%-9%, 10%-19%, 20%-29%, 30%-39%, 40%-49%, 50%-59%, 60%-69%, 70%-79%, 80%-89% and 90%-100%. Marking standards are expressed as marking standards rows in the following tables.
consists of a hierarchy of descriptors which are used by markers to distinguish between grades of student achievement: student achievement
marking scheme is used at module level to inform the first marking and internal and external moderation of each item of assessment. Marking schemes identify the knowledge and skills which students must demonstrate to achieve the learning outcomes of the module and are used to calculate the total mark to be awarded for an individual item of assessment. ARU’s generic assessment criteria are intended to advise the writing of marking schemes, ensuring that they are broadly comparable across the institution.
A module marking scheme customises the ARU’s generic assessment criteria to fit a specific item of assessment for a module, identifying the basis on which marks are awarded. A marking scheme may range from the fairly general to the highly specific. In relatively open- ended assessments (e.g.: where students are asked to select one of a range of essay questions) a Module Leader would not necessarily expect to provide a detailed marking scheme specifying a ‘model answer’ to each specific essay question, but rather to provide a general marking scheme which identifies the characteristics of a good essay and can be applied to any of the essay questions set. The same would apply to many aspects of practice, performance or studio work. In contrast, less open-ended assessment tasks such as translation would require both a ‘model translation’ of the passage and a detailed marking scheme adapted to the specifics of the passage translated.
To facilitate consistency first markers constantly refer to the marking scheme when marking student work. They pass the marking scheme on to the internal moderator/second marker and eventually to the external examiner with student scripts. This enables all parties to understand the basis on which marks are awarded and lends a fundamental transparency to the assessment process. It should always be clear to the internal moderator and external examiner how marks have been determined
Level 5 reflects continuing development from Level 4. At this level students are not fully autonomous but are able to take responsibility for their own learning with some direction. Students are expected to locate an increasingly detailed theoretical knowledge of the discipline within a more general intellectual context, and to demonstrate this through forms of expression which go beyond the merely descriptive or imitative. Students are expected to demonstrate analytical competence in terms both of problem identification and resolution, and to develop their skill sets as required.
