Brief:         
 
If your project is work-based, to ensure confidentiality, you are not required to list specific products or processes unless this is acceptable to your employer.
 
General notes:
Harvard Referencing must be used throughout your project
 
It is suggested that you maintain a project folder in sections to match the steps shown
 
It is suggested that you use appendices to show any data or significant blocks of research documents. These will NOT form part of any word-count.
 
A ‘project diary’ may be useful to help you track progress
 
Feedback will be given at each ‘milestone’ stage
 
 
 
 

Undertake your research project. Ensure that you:

Stick to the topic
Remain within the agreed specification (or can justify why it may have changed). You must agree any changes with your assessor.
Record and collate all data that you require
The target word-count is 4000 words (excluding appendices)
Routinely review your progress against your original plan

 

Evaluate the outcomes of your project. Judge successes or failures of the planning, aims and objectives. What difficulties did you encounter? What conclusions have you reached?

 
 

Make recommendations for any further research and any improvements to what you have done. Were there any limitations that you would have liked to pursue further? Can you apply your results in any way?

 

Produce a 15 minute (minimum) presentation, using appropriate media, and deliver this to your peer group and a small panel of teaching staff. This will be assessed along with your Project Portfolio.
