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.
  • Write your student ID number at the top of every page.
  • Where the assignment comprises more than one task, all tasks must be submitted in a single document.
  • You must number all pages.

SUBMITTING YOUR ASSIGNMENT:

In order to achieve full marks, you must submit your work before the deadline. Work that is submitted late – if your work is submitted on the same day as the deadline by midnight, your mark will receive a 10% penalty. If you submit your work up to two working days after the published submission deadline – it will be accepted and marked. However, the element of the module’s assessment to which the work contributes will be capped with a maximum mark of 40%.

Work cannot be submitted if the period of 2 working days after the deadline has passed (unless there is an approved extension). Failure to submit within the relevant period will mean that you have failed the assessment.

Requests for short-term extensions will only be considered in the case of illness or other cause considered valid by the Director of Studies Team. Please contact DoS@london.aru.ac.uk.  A request must normally be received and agreed by the Director of Studies Team in writing at least 24 hours prior                       to                the                deadline.                  See                rules                6.64-6.73:

MARKING CRITERIA

Assignment submissions will be marked with reference to the below criteria, as summarised in Table 1, based on ARU Level 7 generic grading criteria, Table 2. Note that in applying the criteria consideration will be given to the following:

  • The quality improvement approaches and tools that are selected are covered in the module.
  • The selection of quality improvement approaches and tools is justified and discussed with reference to academic literature.
  • The reflection must cover the use and application of the chosen quality improvements tools and/or quality improvement approaches to address the quality improvement issues for the chosen service.
  • The role of reflection in healthcare has been critically analysed.
  • There is an analysis of models of reflection, and application of a chosen model.
  • Academic literature is used to support the discussion of the points made in relation to the assignment topic. References may also include government legislation and policy.

Table 1: Marking criteria

A qualifying answer (30-39%) identifies some/main issues and demonstrates a very limited knowledge, at a very superficial level and discusses (at a very basic level) with no discussion as to how this is applied. Expression is weak. Answers in this category often adopt a write- all-you-know-about-the-topic approach including little or no application.

A basic answer (40-49%) identifies main issues and demonstrates knowledge, at a superficial level with little discussion as to how this is applied. It demonstrates difficulties and expression lacks academic maturity. Answers in this category often adopt a write-all-you- know-about-the-topic approach including little or no application.

A satisfactory answer (50-59%) determines most issues and demonstrates knowledge and starts to discuss how this could be applied. There are some omissions in content as well as some inconsistencies in application and inaccuracies in expression. Structure is generally quite logical.

A good answer (60-69%) adopts a logical structure and identifies pertinent theories, to underpin the work, discussing how their ideas might be applied. Arguments are supported by relevant contemporary theories and paradigms. Omissions and inaccuracies are minor.

An excellent answer (70 %+) adopts a logical structure and identifies pertinent theories, with depth, flair and imagination and discusses how this may be applied. Arguments are supported by a wide range of relevant contemporary academic theories and paradigms. Relevant theory is critiqued and applied before reaching balanced conclusion(s).

An outstanding answer (80 %+) adopts a logical structure and identifies pertinent theories with outstanding intellectual originality and imagination, enabling a discussion as to how this may be applied. Arguments are supported by a wide range of relevant contemporary academic theories and paradigms. Relevant theory is critiqued and applied before reaching balanced conclusion(s)

An exceptional answer (90 %+) adopts a logical structure and identifies pertinent theories, outlined above, with exceptional intellectual originality and imagination, enabling a discussion as to how this may be applied. Arguments are supported by a wide range of relevant contemporary academic theories and paradigms, demonstrate an exceptional management of resources. Relevant theory is critiqued and applied before reaching exceptional balanced conclusion(s)

Table 2: ARU GENERIC ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND MARKING STANDARDS: LEVEL 7 postgraduate

taught

 

Level 7 is characterised by an expectation of students’ expertise in their specialism. Students are semi-autonomous, demonstrating independence in the negotiation of assessment tasks (including the major project) and the ability to evaluate, challenge, modify and develop theory and practice. Students are expected to demonstrate an ability to isolate and focus on the significant features of problems and to offer synthetic and coherent solutions, with some students producing original or innovative work in their specialism that is worthy of publication or public performance or display.
