Assessment Criteria for Introduction to PLC's Assessment criteria Highlighting the issues related to the problems being investigated. Methodology Fail (<30%) Weak and poor highlighting of the issues Not provided or very weak Significantly incomplete set of results with little discussions Very weak or not no conclusion. Marginal fail (3039%) Evidence of an Understanding but not to a sufficient level Pass (40 - 49%) A limited understanding clearly demonstrated but weak in some areas. 2:2 (50 - 59%) A fair understanding of the problems and issues but incomplete places. 2:1 (60 - 69%) A good understanding of issues is clearly demonstrated. First (70 89%) An excellent demonstration of understanding of the problem issues is very clearly demonstrated. An excellent indication of how the results were obtained. Complete set of results and analysis with excellent discussions and evaluations. An excellent conclusion covering all issues. A good use of language and style. Clear evidence of professional practice First (90% or more) An outstanding demonstration of all issues fully is demonstrated.

Analysis, Results and discussion

Partially provided but not adequate to indicate clearly how results were obtained. Some results & analysis but significantly inadequate and insufficient discussions. Brief conclusion included but it is inadequate.

Some aspects of methodology are provided but this is not complete. Results & analysis covering many of the expected issues with some appropriate discussions. A conclusion is included that covers some of the essential issues Report understandable but lacking in clarity or accuracy, or of poor structure. Some evidence of professional practice and referencing of sources

A good indication of how results were obtained in some areas. Fairly complete set of results and analysis with informative discussions and evaluations. A fairly good conclusion covering many of the expected issues Understandable; well structured; mostly accurate. Some professional practice shown, sources are cited and referenced

A good indication of how results were obtained n most areas Almost complete set of results and analysis with detailed and critical discussions and evaluations. A good conclusion is included clearly highlighting the main issues investigated Clear; well structured; concise; accurate. Appropriate professional practice shown, sources are cited and referenced
