Assessment Brief: First attempt

Required task(s)

To carry out an original piece of research under the guidance of your supervisor accounted for on in a final report document. You are entitled to up to 4 hours of up to 6 supervisory meetings along with written feedback on your work.

Initial topic idea or area

All students from Option C and Option D are required to submit an initial topic idea. This will enable the module leader to allocate you a suitable supervisor. This topic selection is for fall back Option 1.

Ethics request

An ethics request form signed both by you and your supervisor should be uploaded on Moodle before any data collection.

See module guide for more information.

Referencing

All work should be referenced using the BCU Harvard format - there are handouts available
online at the library website and are available as hard copy in the library if you are unsure of
this.

Do not use popular websites like Wikipedia, Google or Yahoo - the former is not peer assessed and the work is not always reliable and the latter are search engines.

Use textbooks and journal articles (newspaper articles may at times be acceptable). You

should however, make more reliance on journal articles as these are peer reviewed and are often more recent than text books. If you are to use text books, these should be the latest so it is important to check whether you have the latest edition.
