Assessment 3 Business Performance Report Requirements OVERVIEW
1. This assessment is worth 50% of your semester marks. It is done solo.
2. This assessment requires you to prepare and submit a report in which you:
a) analysis the performance of, and business results for, your Capstone Company
through the Competition Rounds; and,
b) evaluate your decision-making.
1 Your report will be marked on both how well it addresses the issues set for discussion and
on its presentation quality.
a) The compulsory content and required presentation format for this report are outlined in this document.
b) Failure to include compulsory content or meet presentation format criteria, as outlined in this document, will be penalised. 3. This assessment is the equivalent of an end-of-semester examination.
a) Therefore, your score for this activity, as is the case for all end-of-semester examinations, will not be released to you except as part of the formal results clarifications processes after the official release of semester results.
4. To ensure that you give yourself a good chance of doing well, you should:
a) Read these conditions thoroughly.
b) Clarify immediately, and early, with the Teaching staff any questions you have regarding this assessment.
c) Commence drafting your Report while you are doing the Competition Rounds. To
fit into the overall word length, and also to match the requirements of each section
of the report, you should plan to draft and edit your work several times.
