Secondary Information Analysis
This is an individual, written assessment, to be completed in report format. You are required to write between 3,000 and 4,000 words (excluding title page, preliminaries, tables, figures, reference list and appendices). The report requires in-text referencing and a full reference list in APA style. The purpose of this assessment is to present the final report of your Professional Project. This report should build upon your assessment 1 and it should address the campus tutor feedback. In order to successfully complete assessment 2, you are required to carry out the investigation you have proposed in assessment 1 and to write a project report addressing the following: • Project title • Introduction to your profession (very brief) and to the project report • Background and definition of the issue/problem, including a justification why the issue/problem is crucially relevant to your profession • Your project’s aim and objectives/research questions • A more detailed critical and well-structured literature review • A detailed discussion of how you carried out your project (commensurate with a ‘Methodology’ chapter) • Findings from your secondary information analysis • Discussion of findings in light of previously reviewed literature • Conclusion – this may address recommendations for (soon-to-be) professionals, areas of further research, and limitations of your project. Since this assessment is written in report format, it will need to be presented in professional layout, including: title page, executive summary, table of contents, full reference list (at least 20 high-quality academic, peer-reviewed journal articles), and an appendix evidencing your engagement with the campus tutor. Figures, tables and other appendices are optional and should only be used if required. Here is an assessment briefing video but more details can be found within the Webinars. • Title, background, definition, justification, aim and objectives/research questions • Critical literature review • Methodology • Findings • Discussion • Introduction and conclusion.
Also remember, do make sure your literature review provides a nice solid background to your research question/research aims/research focus.As a Masters-level student, you are required to engage in research as per the Australia Quality Framework (AQF) guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. Students need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the understanding of recent developments in a discipline and/or area of professional practice, and demonstrate “knowledge of research principles and methods applicable to a field of work and/or learning”.Each unit in the MBA has a number of required weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and business publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the ability to engage in appropriate research, students should read and utilise these texts and journals and publications, and as a Masters student, indicate a willingness to research beyond this minimum standard through additional texts, journals and studies that demonstrate an ability to engage in independent research. This is an advanced level course, and accrediting bodies are also looking for evidence of independent research, so the ability to conduct this project without continually relying on your tutors and lecturers is an important part of the learning process for this unit.
