MARKING CRITERIA
Literature used and referencing
This is measured by the amount of data the student has found, its relevance to the topic and the student’s judgement in terms of its reliability – how old is it, who produced it, is it based on personal opinion or well conducted research etc. It is not appropriate to suggest a minimum number of references as some areas are better documented than others but a good piece of work is unlikely to have less than 8 references including work from academic journals. Poor or failing pieces of work may rely on one textbook and/or some ‘google’ articles. Appropriate, accurate and consistent style of referencing should also be taken into account under this heading

Problem Identification and Structure    The questions provided are open ended and different approaches to answering them are discussed in the groups but ultimately it is the responsibility of each individual to decide how to structure the response

Critical Reasoning / Justification
This section is concerned with the way the student actually uses the information they have collected in producing the essay. Is the student able to evaluate critically the data they have collected? Are the points well made? Are they based on the evidence presented? Is evidence used well to support the opinion being expressed? Is the information presented in a logical way? Can the student synthesise an argument?

This section relates to the ability of the student to provide a persuasive conclusion and set of recommendations based on the issues raised, arguments and points made in the report. Are the arguments persuasive? Are the conclusions supported by the body of the report?
