Assessment 2 Information
|Subject Name:||Marketing Principles|
|Assessment Type:||Individual infographic|
|Due Date:||Week 9|
Individually, you are required to create a two-page infographic outlining the communications process of two competitor brands.
In this individual assessment, students will be given an opportunity to show their understanding of the communications process and how it relates to competitor brands. Upon completing this assessment, students should be able to identify and explain the major elements that affect the successful transmission of messages between brands and their consumers.
In week 5, students will be given a case study about two competing brands.
Using the communications process, students will be required to visually, in combination with a small amount of text, showcase how messages are transmitted between each brand and their target audience/s. Students will have to create two separate infographics, one for each brand using the communication process.
Each infographic will need to identify the following:
- The sender of the communication
- The message that was encoded by the sender
- The channel in which the source is used
- The message was decoded by the receiver
- The receiver of the message
- The noise that may have aided in the decoding of the message
- The feedback sent from the receiver to the sender
Students are encouraged to submit their work well before the deadline to avoid technical difficulties. For those students who have limited experience in video making techniques, it is recommended to read a video FAQs document available to you under the assessments tab in MyKBS.
