Group or individual GroupWeighting 30%Due date20/09/2018ASSESSMENT TASK 2: DESCRIPTIONThis is a group project. The objective of this project is to apply modelling principles, spreadsheet engineering technique and modelling skills covered in subject to examine, analyse and solve business problems. Students will be given data related to a simulated real world business operation. Students are required to use appropriate models and spreadsheet tools critically analyse the business data, present the findings and make recommendations to the stakeholders. Groups (2 to 3 students) are formed in the first lecture. Group members are formed by joint selection process where the lecturer and the students together decide the group composition to ensure a mix of experience and background. Once the groups are formed, it is the responsibility of group members to discuss and document their member responsibilities, meeting schedules and group interactions. A copy is then given to the lecturer as a reference in the case group conflict arises. The project will be graded as a group effort where all members will obtain the same mark, unless conflict arises. Groups are to inform the lecturer immediately when conflict arises so it can be deal with quickly. If necessary, peerevaluation will be used where each member are required to evaluate other group members contribution in the project. The project grade is then be allocated based on individual contributions.ASSESSMENT TASK 2: CRITERIA SHEETSee Rubrics in Section 6.ASSESSMENT TASK 3: EXAMINATIONAligned subject learning outcomesSLO K1: Demonstrate the principles of modelling in business decision making processes;CLO K1: Demonstrate essential knowledge necessary for a career in business related professions;CLO K2: Synthesise underlying principles and concepts for making business decisions;Aligned professional standards/ competencies-guidelines/section-3-professional-skills-competency-areas-and-learning-outcomes.Weighting55%DateUniversity’s Examination PeriodPage 11 of 18
