Assignment Marking Criteria
The theory which we learned in the course should be made relevant to your answer.
As it is a ‘briefing note’, you do not need to elaborate a long introduction or summarise long
Use your own words.
Please use graphs and/or tables to support your arguments. You are welcome to draw diagrams and
sketch graphs, but they should be clear and readable.
Attribute the ideas you use to the rightful owners by means of referencing (if you use somebody
else’s idea and do not attribute it, it is plagiarism). Referring to lecture notes is not a good idea: use
original authors instead. Full details for all in-text references should be given in a bibliography.

plagiarism can be found in the Undergraduate Handbook.
