1. Introduction
An assignment should be regarded as a piece of academic writing. The following comments and suggestions about the construction and presentation of assignments are intended to provide a guide. They are not intended to be considered as rigid rules. However, there are a number of academic conventions which should be met in academic work. Of most importance in academic writing is an overriding need for internal consistency in presentation. Internal consistency is achieved by thoroughness and attention to detail in the presentation of work.

The purpose of an academic piece of writing is to report the results of an investigation to other members of the discipline for their information, evaluation and criticism. Communication of the results of academic activity is important as it allows the dissemination of information and is fundamental to the establishment of groups of people who are interested in similar problems and who are interested in applying similar analytical techniques to identify solutions to these problems. Writing an assignment is an exercise in effective communication and requires more than just learning of techniques of analysis and facts about the economic process.

There are a number of books available that assist with writing assignments. See for example, Betts and Seitz (1986) Writing Essays in the Social Sciences and Anderson and Poole (1994) Thesis and Assignment Writing. It is recommended that students consult these for information about how to research and write an assignment.

2. Assessment Criteria
Each units/modules offered through the HND Programme will have stipulated the criteria for assessment of assignments in the Course Outline. A number of assessment criteria that may be relevant for all courses are listed below.









Relevance of your answer to the question or task set.
Clarity of expression.
Supporting documentation for arguments.
Proper acknowledgement of documentation and the use of a bibliographic convention. Logical planning and sequence.
Overall presentation, including correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. Comprehensive coverage reflecting mastery of set readings and text.

3. Presentation of the Assignment
You should always ensure that you prepare two hard copies of your Assignment and keep a copy on disc. On occasions assignments go missing, or second copies are required by University/College.


Each Assignment should be clearly marked up with your name, your study centre, your Student registration number and at the end of the assignment a word count. The assignment should be word-processed.

The assignment presentation format should directly meet the requirements of the assignment brief (i.e. reports and presentations are the most called for communication formats). You must ensure that your assignment does not appear to be an extended essay. If it does, you will lose grades.
