For this module you will complete two forms of assessment:
 
Assessment must be submitted to BMM5582 via Turnitin by 12.00 noon on the deadline day
 
Assessment 1 – Group Presentation: 20 mins
 
The aim of the group presentation is to give the student the opportunity to have a detailed review of an allocated topic with the purpose of practicing the research process.In the group assessment, all student will receive the same marks. Students will have the option to carry out theoretical or empirical research.Empirical research could include either/both primary and secondary sources.Theoretical and purely secondary databases will not require ethical approval. However, if an element of primary research is included in the project, students will need to get support of a member of the business team who will act as a supervisor.Support from
the academic should be included in the report.
 
Assessment 2 – Individual research proposal: 2400 words
 
The research proposal should evaluate the purpose of the study, research questions, initial literature review, justification of methodology and methods and feasibility. Ethical approval will be obtained in BMM6442 for primary research projects.The Individual research proposal should be submitted via Turnitin during the assessment period.
 
Plagiarism
 
Plagiarism is a form of cheating which involves presenting another person’s ideas or expressions without acknowledging the source. The penalties for this are severe.Extensive and repeated instances can result in your removal from the degree programme. It is therefore very important that you understand how to avoid being accused of plagiarism. Any work submitted for assessment must, unless collaborative work has been specifically permitted in the assignment guidelines, be your own work.
 
Any material used, from whatever source, must be clearly acknowledged. Any words that are not your own should be shown as quotes andtheir author and publication details given. Where you paraphrase the words of another you should make this clear and give details of where you found this material. You should make use of the referencing guidelines on the Library website and complete the online plagiarism tutorial to ensure that you are providing such details correctly https://lib.leedstrinity.ac.uk/iguana/www.main.cls?surl=Referencing Doingso will gain you marks for showing evidence of research and ability to reference.

Not doing so could lead to accusations of plagiarism. You can also use Turnitin in advance of the deadline to enable you to check for elements of plagiarism in your work and then correct these.Students will be made aware of how to avoid plagiarism as part of the induction process and within the initial stages of the programme of study, as well as how to incorporate correct referencing into their written work. The library provides Referencing Guides, online tutorials and one-to-one support. Students can alsoobtain advice on appropriate academic conventions from the Learning Hub and advice on a specific piece of assessment is available from the module tutor.As is a form of dishonesty which is viewed by the University as a serious offence.

The University’s Regulations contain provisions by which the Examination Board may penalise students who are found to have presented plagiarised work for assessment.The purpose of this statement is to explain what plagiarism is. Further information about the procedures which are followed where allegations of plagiarism are made,together with the penalties that may be imposed, can be found in the above Regulations.Plagiarism consists of presenting someone else’s work as your own. Some examplesof plagiarism are:
• reproducing or paraphrasing published material without acknowledgement of the source
• copying from the work of another student
• undeclared collusion with another student
• getting someone else to do your work for youThis is not an exhaustive list. There are clearly degrees of plagiarism, particularly where published work is concerned. At one extreme there may be a very short section of a coursework which is copied without being properly referenced; at the other extreme a coursework may consist almost entirely of copied work.Students who are found to have colluded in making their work available to be copied by others will not themselves be deemed to have committed plagiarism but will be dealt
with under the student disciplinary procedures described in the Students’ Handbook of Regulations. Similarly, disciplinary action will be taken against any student who is found to have undertaken a coursework on behalf of another.
 
Submission Formats
 
All assignments should be submitted through TURNITIN to Moodle whenever possible. If necessary,for the nature of the work,alternative methods may be used. For each piece of assessment, the assignment (or assessment) brief will indicate the method of submission. Students should be advised to retain a copy of their submittedassignment
(or assessment) however submitted, where practicable e.g. this may not be possiblewith artefacts.
 
Penalties for Late Submissions
 
• If you submit coursework after the given deadline, or agreed deadline extension, your submission will be marked as a fail.
• If you submit coursework after the given deadline, you may also ask that we excuse your lateness. We will consider such requests in accordance with the Mitigating Circumstances Policy and Procedure.The tests we will use are:
a. your late submission was for a good reason, and
b. you could not reasonably have asked for an extension before the deadline.
• In any event, coursework submitted more than five days after the original deadline, or any agreed extension, will not be marked, and will be counted as a failure. This helps us to keep track of all the work that has to be marked and returned to students
Please note all coursework for the Foundation Year is marked on a pass/fail basis.
Where coursework is marked on a pass/fail basis and it is submitted late then it will automatically be deemed to be a fail and will be awarded a mark of zero.
Therefore, late submission of Foundation Year coursework should be avoided at all costs, as assignments will be automatically failed.Assessment Criteria Grid - Generic descriptors to inform marking criteria for academic undergraduate assessment
