Description of Module Assessment
Reflective AnalysisA reflective analysis on a journal article and a case (selected from a choice) and the student's personal experience of critiquing academic literature. The students will analyse the content and argument of the two pieces selected and reflect upon how the skills and knowledge gained through the module, and their independent research, led to their conclusions.
Students can submit the reflective analysis in audio format that does not exceed 20 minutes, or in a written form not exceeding 2000 words. The equivalency is consistent with KIITE principles. The audio options for this assessment provide students an opportunity to submit recordings of their reflections and are not presentations.
