Introduction to Information Systems

 

Assignment 2 Due 21 October 2016 Hardcopy & Turnitin General Instructions:

 

These instructions are to complement the assessment information provided in the subject outline.

 

Perspective:

 

This is a group assessment. Each group must consist of 3 students unless otherwise advised by

 

the tutor. Students must be from the same tutorial cohort. Students are advised to attempt all

 

answers with an academic perspective, so that they attain maximum benefit from the feedback

 

provided. Students are also advised to be proactive in reading and researching beyond and in

 

advance of the weekly topics.

 

Subject Objectives:

 

This assessment is constructively aligned with the subject?s objectives and graduate attributes,

 

particularly: Objectives: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, and 9 and Attributes: A5, B1, B2, B4, E1, E2.

 

Suggested Preparation Time:

 

It is expected that an average student will spend about 25 hours in preparing this assessment.

 

This figure could vary depending on the student?s language proficiency, skills, and academic

 

abilities and aptitude.

 

Referencing, Formatting, and Backups:

 

Students are to use the UTS Harvard Style of referencing in their answers for both in-text

 

citations and bibliography referencing. Students also need to use the Microsoft Word

 

application. The font style for the reports should be set to ?Arial? size 12, with 1.5 line spacing.

 

The total assignment reports should be between 2000 and 2500 words (excluding references,

 

attached articles, and coverpages) with the word ranges for each report clearly specified. Not

 

complying with this will attract a 10% penalty of the maximum possible mark (not the

 

student?s achieved mark) per offence.

 

Students need to keep multiple backups as non-submission or late submission due to lost or

 

corrupt files will attract penalties as detailed in the subject outline. Submission Instructions:

 

1. Students are to select a team leader to submit a softcopy of their assessment reports to

 

Turnitin (via UTSOnline) AND

 

2. Print the reports and append all relevant forms and coverpages (the FEIT coverpage, and the

 

marking scheme appended to the end of this assignment) (including the student number(s)

 

and full name(s) of all students in the group and their signatures for group work) staple it twice

 

at the top left side, and submit the hardcopy to the tutor at the beginning of the tutorial time.

 

No plastic sleeves/folders are required. Students need to make sure they also keep multiple

 

backups in their possession, in the event that they need to resubmit.

 

3. Submit a printout of your presentation to your tutor at the beginning of the tutorial in which

 

you are scheduled to present ? following the instructions noted under ?III ? Presentations?

 

below.

 

Students are advised to apply the following format in naming the single assignment 2 report file

 

they submit to Turnitin: Student surname + student number + Assg 2

 

For example a group leader is called John Smith, with the following student ID: 12345678 will

 

have the following naming for their assignment 2 file: Smith 12345678 Assg 2

 

Assessments that do not comply with the submission instructions will attract a 10% penalty of

 

the maximum possible mark (not the student?s achieved mark) per offence. Late submission of

 

an assessment, either online or in hard copy or presentation printout will attract a 10%

 

penalty of the maximum possible mark (not the student?s achieved mark) per day or part

 

thereof. Any issues effecting timely submission should be raised with the subject coordinator

 

well in advance of the submission due date and time.

 

Assistance:

 

To maintain assessment process equity and fairness, the instructors will not comment on students

 

output or work?in-progress prior to submission. The instructors may be able to provide generic

 

advice on theoretical issues, structure, and expectations. Students are advised to raise any generic

 

questions with the lecturer and tutors during class time so that answers are provided to all students

 

in an equitable and transparent manner.

 

Students having difficulties with their comprehension and writing should seek immediate

 

assistance from university support services such as HELPS well in advance of the due date.

 

Marks and Feedback:

 

This assessment will be marked out of 45 marks. The total raw mark will be divided by 1.5 to reach

 

the allocated weight out of 30 marks for this assessment in the subject outline. The instructors will

 

endeavour to return marked assessments and provide verbal and written feedback during class time

 

within three weeks of assessment submission. Plagiarism and Academic Misconduct:

 

Plagiarism means representing the creative work of another as your own original work without

 

appropriate acknowledgement of the author of the work or the source. Advice on what

 

constitutes plagiarism, how to avoid plagiarism, and how to reference is available here:

 

http://www.uts.edu.au/teachlearn/avoidingplagiarism/index.html

 

Students are directed to adequately reference any material they use, not to share their

 

work with others outside their group, and not to leave their work on common storage

 

media that others could retrieve with or without their knowledge or consent. Students should

 

therefore take full responsibility of their work as copying and plagiarism with or without

 

their knowledge or consent still attracts severe penalties. I - Ethics Report (18 marks):

 

Johnny Jones (known as JJ), is the operations manager at IRCL (the organisation introduced in

 

assignment 1). JJ has a problem with slumping productivity and wants to ensure that

 

employees are putting the required time at work. He is considering installing RFIDs in the

 

organisation to monitor employee whereabouts but is concerned about the ethical implications of

 

doing so.

 

As an IS Trainee at IRCL, JJ seeks your advice. He asks you to provide a report on ethical

 

implications of RIFDs in the workplace to him by tomorrow afternoon. He asks you the

 

following question: ?Is it ethical to collect workplace information about IRCL employees via

 

RFIDs??

 

Preparation:

 

In preparing your management report you need to read the following RAND Corporation 2005

 

article:

 

Privacy in the Workplace: Case Studies on the Use of Radio Frequency Identification in

 

Access Cards

should also be placed at the bottom of the report indicating: (Word Count = [Number]) The report should be divided into sections which could include an introduction, body

 

and conclusion. The sections in the report must be identified as they relate to the issues

 

above [eg 1); 2); or 3)]

 

The report should be clear and professionally presented. This should be done taking

 

the perspective stipulated in the case, namely, you are the IS Trainee addressing the

 

operations manager.

 

Students need to seek one further academic article (other than the Mason 1986 and

 

The Rand report) to support their recommendation (in question 3). This article should

 

be adequately referenced with in-text citations and bibliography references based on

 

the Harvard Style. Students need to attach a copy of the article they use to the hardcopy

 

they submit to their tutor. II - Sustainability Report (12 marks):

 

JJ seems to be very interested in RFIDs. He is considering using RFIDs as components of a Green

 

Information Systems, in order to improve the sustainability of IRCL?s operations. He asks you

 

to prepare a report addressing the following question:

 

?How can RFIDs assist in achieving sustainability objectives at IRCL??

 

In your answer:

 

1- Provide a clear example of how RFIDs can assist in achieving sustainability objectives

 

at IRCL as part of their systems of operation. (6 marks)

 

2- Draw a flowchart of your example indicating how such a system could operate. (4

3- Structure your report based on the following instructions: (2 marks)

limit will attract a penalty as stated above. The word count for the sustainability report

 

only should also be placed at the bottom of the report indicating: (Word Count =

 

[Number])

 

The report should be divided into sections which could include an introduction, body

 

and conclusion, as well as a flowchart diagram.

 

The report should be clear and professionally presented. This should be done taking

 

the perspective stipulated in the case, namely, you are the IS Trainee addressing the

 

operations manager.

This article should be adequately referenced with in-text citations and bibliography

 

references based on the Harvard Style. Students need to attach a copy of the article

 

they use to the hardcopy they submit to their tutor. 31266
