General Assessment Criteria
Incomprehensible submissions. Assessments provide the opportunity for students to
demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment
responses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot determine
that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be
marked according to the marking criteria (accompanied by the marking rubric). Failing to meet
the requirements may result in 0 (zero) marks where relevant.
Do not reproduce statements from PMBOK or PRINCE2 or any other references
without proper context.
Example 1:
Leadership is knowledge, skills, and behavior required to guide, motivate and direct a team to
achieve its business goals (copied from page 56 of PMBOK), as this is considered plagiarism,
instead you must show how you would apply that statement to your case.
Example 2:
PMBOK version 6 constitutes 10 knowledge areas, 5 process groups and 49 process activities
or
PRINCE2 consists of 7 Principles, 7 Themes and 7 Processes.
Produce your answers for the case in question. DO NOT write about the theory or
explain what PMBOK, PRINCE2, DMAIC methodology, etc covers. That will not
attract any marks. You should demonstrate the application of the best practices not the
theory.
Discuss with your lecturer / tutor if you need help.

Word count limit (excluding references and appendix). Your submission should be made
using Microsoft WORD document of 2,500 – 3,000 words. Text length less than 2500 words
will be penalised by 5% of the total available marks while text beyond the 3000 word limit
shall attract a penalty as follows:
? 3001 – 3300 words: 5 marks
? 3301 – 3600 words: 10 marks
? more than 3601 words: 15 marks
Late penalty. Late submissions will attract penalties at 5% for each calendar day or part thereof
that it is late of the total available mark for the individual assessment item. This means that, for
an assessment worth 40 marks, the mark that you earn is reduced by 2 marks each calendar day
that the assessment is late (including part-days and weekends). See s4.58 in the Assessment
Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).
Check with marking criteria. Before submitting your assignment you should check it against
the assessment criteria and the marking rubric included in this specification to ensure that you
have satisfactorily addressed all the criteria that will be used to mark your assignment.
Academic language. All submissions should be thoroughly proof-read for spelling,
typographical or grammatical errors before being submitted. Do not reply on the ‘spell-check’
function in your word processing program. If, for example, ‘affect’ is substituted for ‘effect’,
your program may not detect the error
