Question
This assessment task provides you with the opportunity to develop and practice oral communication/presentation skills, while acquiring the technical knowledge contained in
the course. For this assessment task you will be allocated a tutorial question and required to present an answer to this in the relevant tutorial. To help prepare you for this we
will discuss at the beginning of the course what effective communication in a business context looks like and how criteria can be used to describe various levels of
performance. This assessment task is worth 20% of your course grade.
Allocation of Questions
Students will be allocated questions by the lecturer/course convenor and these will be made available following the first tutorial. Requests for alternative questions will only
be entertained in exceptional circumstances and must be made in writing (email) to the convenor by the end of the first week of teaching.
Detailed Requirements
Students are required to:
Provide a five (5) minute presentation of the answer to their allotted question (timing will be strictly monitored so practice this).
Use at least five (5) PowerPoint slides to accompany the presentation plus an additional slide that contains a reference list, which must be submitted as per the
requirements below. Students should also have their slides on USB stick at the tutorial as a backup.
Note, the first slide MUST contain in a bold clear font, your name, student number, date of presentation, and the question you are presenting.
Submission:
o Submit the final version of your presentation slides and a scanned completed coversheet 5.00pm on the day before your presentation. This is to be done via
the submission tool in Learning at Griffith (further instructions are provided on the learning@griffith site). Note that only one submission can be made and
this cannot be withdrawn from the system.
o The file names must be in the form of student surname and student number (eg: Smith_s11111.pptx)
Students must also hand in to the tutor a printed hard copy of their slides on the day of their presentation.
Note that students must use accepted referencing conventions in order to acknowledge the work of others used in producing your work. This will avoid
plagiarism. If you are unfamiliar with referencing conventions, then see the GBS resource bank (available through learning@griffith).
Note that a failure to provide electronic copies (including signed cover sheet) of the slides on time will be deemed a late submission and attract a 10% penalty
per day as per the university policy.
Marking Criteria
The assignment will be marked using the Bachelor of Commerce oral communication rubric which is provided in the following pages. This sets out the criterion and
standards that are required for particular levels of performance (and therefore marks). Students should study these rubrics closely in order to understand what is required and
how you will be marked for your work.
Results Communication and Feedback
Students will receive the marked rubric and summary sheet approximately one week from presenting/submitting via the My Marks page of the course website. This will
document the performance against each of the criteria and advise you of your overall mark. In some cases additional comments will be provided.
