2. Assessment Overview
This module has two re-assessment components each worth 50% of the module assessment, this re-assessment brief is for Assessment Component A (CC1) and is for students who did not pass the Group Infographic assessment with their first submission.
Component A is an individual report and blog in which students undertake the first step in a marketing plan and explain how to do a market analysis using examples where appropriate. Students must critically analyse each stage of the market analysis process, explain how the stages of analysis are linked and outline the value of a market analysis to short and long term marketing decision making. The three key stages of the report should be presented as three separate blog entries and as an electronic submission via Blackboard.
The mark for re-assessment work is capped at 40%. Students who do not achieve an overall pass mark of 40% (calculated across the module’s two assessment points) after re-assessments will be considered to have failed the module.
