Assessment 3b: Self and peer review
|Assessment type: Self and peer review||Word limit: N/A|
|Due Date: Thursday of Week 7, 23:59 Melbourne time|
The aim of this assessment is to encourage you to work with the other students in the course and learn through practice, cooperation, and collaboration.
During this course you will be learning many new concepts. To help you apply these new concepts and skills, you will be provided with regular weekly exercises. You will be also asked to develop a project plan and undertake a planning exercise using Microsoft Project. Although you should attempt the exercises individually to develop your skills, it can be helpful to exchange and compare your work, process and solutions with other students.
For this purpose, we are teaming you up into smaller study groups of maximum 5 people for the duration of the course. At the end of the course, we want you to assess yours and each other’s participation in the group work. You can use the rubric provided to assess each other’s contributions. The marks you receive from your peers and your self-assessment will be averaged and will form your mark for this assessment task.
Use RMIT Harvard referencing style for this assessment.
You must acknowledge all the courses of information you have used in your assessments.
Refer to the RMIT Easy Cite referencing tool to see examples and tips on how to reference in the appropriated style. You can also refer to the library referencing page for more tools such as EndNote, referencing tutorials and referencing guides for printing.
The assessment will be submitted in Canvas as a file upload.
Academic integrity and plagiarism
Academic integrity is about honest presentation of your academic work. It means acknowledging the work of others while developing your own insights, knowledge and ideas.
You should take extreme care that you have:
- Acknowledged words, data, diagrams, models, frameworks and/or ideas of others you have quoted (i.e. directly copied), summarised, paraphrased, discussed or mentioned in your assessment through the appropriate referencing methods
- Provided a reference list of the publication details so your reader can locate the source if necessary. This includes material taken from Internet sites
If you do not acknowledge the sources of your material, you may be accused of plagiarism because you have passed off the work and ideas of another person without appropriate referencing, as if they were your own.
RMIT University treats plagiarism as a very serious offence constituting misconduct. Plagiarism covers a variety of inappropriate behaviours, including:
- Failure to properly document a source
- Copyright material from the internet or databases
- Collusion between students
For further information on our policies and procedures, please refer to the University website.
When you submit work electronically, you agree to the assessment declaration.
Working as a group
Many courses require you to work in a group to complete various assessments. It is the collective responsibility of all group members to actively contribute and complete any project. If any individual is unavailable during this time, the group will need to adjust responsibilities to allow for the work to be completed. It is recommended that students elect a group leader to take responsibility for this.
Working in a group requires consistent interaction and communication. This should be done within Canvas, Google Hangouts, email etc.
Should any individual be unavailable for an extended period of time, it is the responsibility of the group members, or group leader, to advise their tutor to discuss the situation. This should be raised as early as possible if students wish to apply for an extension or special consideration.
