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.

  1. Critical analysis of the strategic environments of your case study organisation, and the description of its strategic position, using appropriate theoretical tools (40 marks).
  2. Appropriate practical recommendation for strategic action arising from a critical evaluation of the impact of an identified emerging technology on your selected organisation (40 marks).
  3. Demonstration of academic skills (20 marks)

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.

Adequate 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 sound answer (50-59%) determines most issues, demonstrates knowledge, includes relevant theories and discusses their application in basic terms. 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 in detail how these 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 in detail application. 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, demonstrates 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

 MOD006936 Strategy in the Public & Private Sectors

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.
