    Assessment Detail
    Assessment 1: Workshop Participation (10%)
    This assessment is aimed at growing your knowledge of the management discipline and your awareness of academic and management competencies in preparation for assessments 4, 5 and 6. You are required to attend all scheduled workshops and be prepared to discuss your thinking concerning the questions outlined in the workshop timetable (see workshop schedule).

    Although you are expected to attend all scheduled workshops, the 10% grade will be determined by your contribution to the discussions held in the workshops. Attendance is not the criterion to gain 10% marks. This can only be accomplished through the questions/comments you pose in the workshops. The quality of your discussion will also be considered when determining the participation grade. 

    Permission for any absence is generally only given for medical or compassionate reasons. All such requests must be emailed to the workshop facilitator and should be accompanied by documentary evidence from a social service professional (e.g. doctor, counsellor or psychologist). Each request will be assessed on its merits. However, in order to get the participation grade, you would still need to email the preparation for that day(s) to your lecturer.

    Assessment 2: Weekly Quizzes (20%)
    Commencing in Week 1, MyUni will host 10 text-based multiple-choice online quizzes. Each quiz consists of 25 multiple choice questions and will assess material covered in the associated topic. These quizzes will provide you with the opportunity to test your understanding of core concepts and identify areas that require further study and assistance. You should discuss issues arising from the quiz questions with your lecturer. Attempting online quizzes by the prescribed due dates is essential as the relevant quiz will close after this date.

    Assessment 3: Mid-term Test (10%)
    This assessment is aimed at testing your understanding of the course contents (topics 1 to 3) which are delivered in the first week of the course. All materials covered during this period is examinable (topic 1 to 3). More information on the midterm will be provided in the first workshop.

    Assessment 4: Group Work
    4a. Group Report (20%)

    This group assignment aims to understand organizational environments by exploring family experiences. This assignment encourages you to apply concepts you have learned in this course to real-world situations by using family experiences as a lens to understand organizational environments. It is intended that you will critically analyze and draw connections between family dynamics and organizational environments using concepts from this course (e.g., structures, culture, communication, motivation, teamwork, leadership, etc).

    Instructions:

    Introduction (10%):

    Describe briefly what organizational environments are and how they are important.

    Describe how family experiences can be used to better understand organizational environments.

    Literature Review (20%):

    Identify and review relevant literature related to organizational environments using concepts from this course (e.g., structures, culture, communication, motivation, teamwork, leadership, etc).

    Determine which concepts, theories, and models were discussed in this course that relate to these topics.

    Selection of Family Experiences (15%):

    The group members should share a personal or observed family experience that they believe will provide insight into the organizational environment.

    Explain why the selection is relevant to the course concepts.

    Analysis of Family Experiences (25%):

    The chosen family experiences should be analyzed within the context of organizational environments.

    Examine how family dynamics can be viewed as a reflection of or a contrast to organizational environments. Refer to the literature review section.

    Application of Course Concepts (20%):

    Analyze family experiences using at least three-course concepts.

    Demonstrate (means you have to show how you made sense of the organizational environment through family examples - not just write what you found but "how" you found it) how these concepts enhance the understanding of family dynamics and organizational environments.

    Conclusion and Reflection (10%):

    Provide a summary of the key findings of the analysis.

    Reflect on the importance of using personal experiences to gain a deeper understanding of organizational environments.

    Guidelines:

    Groups should consist of 3-4 members.

    Maintain a balanced distribution of workload among the members of the group.

    Submitted materials should be in the form of a written report of a maximum of 5 pages (Times New Roman, 12 pt, 1.5 lines spacing), excluding references and appendices, using the appropriate headings and sub-headings. A key aspect of your grade will also be related to how well your group responds to the challenge of:
    1. including all the relevant information in a well-written, concise 5-pages report.
    2. skillfully applying the appropriate theories and frameworks covered in class.
    3. formulating and presenting an overall argument that is convincing and supported by case evidence. 

    Support your arguments and ideas with academic references (i.e. scholarly references that are peer-reviewed - journal papers, conference papers, book chapters, books other than this course's textbook).

    It is important to promote critical thinking and analysis rather than merely describing.

    In this assignment, students will collaborate, think critically, and apply theoretical knowledge to real-life situations. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to recognize the connections between their personal experiences and the academic concepts they are studying.

    Once your group report is complete, only ONE group member will submit ONE group assignment file electronically using the link which will be made available on the MyUni course website. 

    Note: Please do not upload multiple copies of the group report.

    Turnitin similarity software will be utilised to indicate potential plagiarism. If your similarity report is greater than 30% (not considering assignment coversheet with plagiarism policies, references, headings, subtitles, etc.), it is strongly advised that you refer to the following link: https://www.adelaide.edu.au/writingcentre/resources/avoiding-plagiarism

    If, as a result of this process, your assignment is submitted after the due date, a late submission penalty will be applied (5% per day). Students must retain a copy of all assessments submitted. You can resubmit your assignment multiple times (with the same file name) until the due date: time, but note that it may take several hours for turnitin.com to generate your similarity report.

    4b. Group PResentations (10%)
    Group Assignment: Unveiling Organizational Environments Through Family Experiences
    Objective:
    The purpose of this group assignment is to explore the intricate connections between family experiences and organisational environments. As part of the course, you will apply concepts from the course to analyse and draw parallels between family dynamics and aspects of organisational life, including structures, culture, communication, motivation, teamwork, leadership, and other topics from the course that you find relevant to your experiences.

    Task:
    Selecting Family Experiences:

    It is the responsibility of each member of the group to identify a family experience from their own personal experience or from observations that can be used to analyse organisational environments.

    This family experience should provide a range of dynamics, challenges, or successes that relate to the concepts explored in the course.

    Conceptual Mapping:

    Build a conceptual map of the key concepts from the course (including structures, culture, communication, motivation, teamwork, leadership, and other topics from the course that you find relevant to your experiences) in collaboration with your classmates.

    Develop a diagram that links each selected family experience to these organisational concepts and allows them to be analysed. Ensure this visual representation is clear.

    Critical Analysis:

    Critically examine each family's experience within the context of the selected organisational concepts.

    Discuss the similarities and differences between family dynamics and organisational phenomena and possible insights that can be gained by comparing the two.

    Synthesis and Presentation:

    The individual analyses should be consolidated into a group presentation that captures the overarching theme of family experiences as they relate to organisational environments.

    Provide your audience with visually appealing slides that support your presentation.

    Peer Discussion:

    You should engage in a constructive peer discussion after each presentation to explore additional insights, perspectives, or questions raised by your peers.

    Ensure each team member shares the Q&A session or designate at least two members of your group to answer audience questions.

    Presentation Guidelines:
    The presentation time for each group will be a maximum of 15 minutes.

    Incorporate visual aids judiciously into your presentation to emphasise key points. Please feel free to express your creativity!

    Include an interactive element in your presentation to engage your audience. The activity could include a brief discussion prompt, a short activity, or a question-and-answer session initiated by you.

    Evaluation Criteria:
    The following criteria will be used to evaluate your group:

    Selecting Family Experience (15%):
    How well you introduce the group members, their activities and how they contributed to the presentation.
    A measure of how well you identify a family experience from your own personal experience or from observations that you use to analyse organisational environments.
    Conceptual Alignment (25%):

    A measure of how well the chosen family experiences align with the key concepts of the organisation. The depth to which the conceptual mapping is developed.

    Critical Analysis (30%):

    An assessment of the quality of the critical analysis for each family experience. Drawing meaningful connections between family dynamics and organisational concepts is essential.

    Synthesis, Presentation & Engagement (25%):

    Presenting the group's findings clearly and coherently. An effective use of visual aids to support the key points of the presentation.

    During the presentation, the audience was engaged to an extent. A successful interaction with the audience is a result of the interactive element.

    Peer Discussion (5%):

    Engage in active participation in peer discussions after the presentation in a Q&A session.

    Note to Students:
    The purpose of this assignment is to encourage you to think critically, make connections between theory and real-life experiences, and effectively communicate your insights. Make your presentation an engaging exploration of the intersections of family and organizational dynamics by embracing creativity, encouraging active participation, and incorporating engaging visuals.

    Instructions for this assignment:

    As a part of a group, each student will need to have contributed to preparing and delivering the presentation in the workshops. By using a real-life example, specifically family experiences, you will be able to identify multiple managerial issues with the material you learn in this course. This presentation will be assessed by me and is worth 10% of your total grade. The grade for these presentations will be based on your team performance (not individuals); therefore you and your teammates will share the grade. There is always tension in groups due to strict timelines or working with strangers or cross-cultural differences. Amidst these challenges, you have to ensure you find ways to work together and transform from a group to an effective team. This is one of the learnings from this course.

    Given that the presentations will be approximately 15 mins each, you will need to create a PowerPoint presentation. It is up to you if you want to create other forms of presentations but a visual aid is necessary for this assignment. There is an element of creativity and showmanship to presenting, so the decision on how to frame your presentation is ultimately yours.

    Please upload your presentations on MyUni before the presentation day.

    On delivering an excellent presentation, students need to specifically address the following issues...

    Do not directly read from slides or cards. It does not tell me anything about your ideas or learning. This may impact your grade if you choose to do so.
    Engage your audience. Refer to the guidelines for this assignment above.
    Be creative and (appropriately) entertaining.
    Acknowledge and answer questions.
    For more useful information on how to give an effective presentation”, see: https://hbr.org/2013/06/how-to-give-a-killer-presentation/Links to an external site.

    It’s also important to note that there will be approximately 5 minutes of questions and answers after your presentation. As a presenter, your entire group will be responsible for fielding these questions convincingly and confidently (Refer to the assignment guidelines above). As an audience member, you are responsible for posing “good” questions that respectfully critique/challenge the presenting team’s position. A good question can be defined as one that is clear, thought-provoking, and specifically related to aspects of the presentation at hand.

    To summarise, we’ve outlined the “presentation rules” for both presenters and the audience below:

    For presenters

    Engage the audience. Use creative ways to make your presentation interesting and interactive.
    Use visual aids, e.g. prepare slides or other interesting visual materials.
    Be professional. Dress well and use professional language.
    Act as a team. Each team member must present so that no one person dominates the presentation.
    Mind your time. Keep within your prescribed timeframe, e.g. not too long or short.
    Know your topic. Be prepared to answer questions or discuss with the audience.
    Do not simply read your slides or notes. Use a conversational approach and keep eye contact with the audience.
    For the audience

    Have respect. Listen and do not interrupt the presentation.
    Pay attention. Make notes as interesting ideas come to you. These will inform your questions.
    Ask questions and offer feedback. It is your responsibility to interact with presenters. Remember, your participation grade is based on the quality of the questions you pose to your fellow classmates.

    Assessment 5: Final Exam (30%)
    This assessment is aimed at testing your understanding of knowledge in the management discipline and capacity for logical, critical, and creative thinking. The examination will be held during the scheduled exam period. The contents of the exam will cover the material discussed in the workshops and the exact form of the exam will be discussed in the third/last week of the summer school.

    Group Collaborations:

    In this class, we utilize Canvas to organize your learning experience. As a result, groups will be required to utilize the group collaborations function in Canvas. The tool is designed to facilitate your collaborations among your team members but also to communicate with your respective workshop facilitator. It is required that all groups setup up a collaborations page for both group assignments in this course (i.e. Team Presentation and Group Report).

    For more information on how to create a collaborations page, please see:

    Submission
    Assignment Guidelines including Referencing Details
    Helpful guides for academic writing and observance of the Harvard referencing style conventions and protocols are provided on The University of Adelaide Writing Centre web page (see Writing Centre) and in The Communication Skills Guide (see Communication Skills Guide). A copy of the Communication Skills Guide will have been given to you at the beginning of your program and can assist you structure your assignments. This publication also provides guidelines on a range of other important communication skills including writing essays and making oral presentations, etc.

    In preparing any written piece of assessment for your studies it is important to draw on the relevant ‘literature’ to support critical analysis. Also essential is to reference the literature used. Correct referencing is important because it identifies the source of the ideas and arguments that you present and the source of the actual words you use, helping to avoid the problem of plagiarism (see section 8) The Harvard system is widely used in Business Schools and use of this style of referencing can be found in the Communication Skills Guide. Further assistance with referencing and writing is available from The University of Adelaide Writing Centre and the Faculty’s Learning Support Advisors (or contact the u/g Hub in the first instance).

    You should consistently and appropriately reference your assignments using the Harvard referencing system. You should try to cite peer-reviewed academic journals and specialist books in the area. Your submission should look like something that you would be proud to present in a professional environment (i.e. presented in a professional manner) and be free of grammatical and spelling errors.

    Submission Guidelines
    Please note that students must retain a copy of all assessments submitted. Assignment 4 should be submitted electronically through MyUni>3610_COMMGMT_1001>Course Assessment>Assignment 4. Through this process, your assignment will automatically generate a unique identifier, the relevant Assessment Rubric and a Turnitin similarity report. You can resubmit your assignment multiple times (with the same file name) until the due date: time, but note that it may take several hours for turnitin.com to generate your similarity report.

    Your similarity report will also indicate a colour related to the similarity index. In order for your assignment to be graded, a BLUE or GREEN similarity index must be achieved. The various possibilities and associated treatment of assignments are as follows:

    - Blue (no matching words) = your assignment will be graded accordingly.
    - Green (one matching word - 24% similarity index) = your assignment will be graded accordingly.
    - Yellow (25-49% similarity index) = your assignment will not be graded and you will be able to resubmit within a 24 hour period as long as a blue or green index is realized. If resubmitted, your grade will be reduced by 10%. If not resubmitted, your grade will be 0.
    - Orange (50-74% similarity index) = your assignment will not be graded and you will be able to resubmit within a 24 hour period as long as a blue or green index is realized. If resubmitted, your grade will be reduced by 20%. If not resubmitted, your grade will be 0.
    - Red (75-100% similarity index) = your assignment will receive a grade of 0. There will be no opportunity to resubmit. Repeat offenders will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

    Plagiarism is a serious violation of the Academic Honesty Policy. For more information on plagiarism, see: https://www.adelaide.edu.au/writingcentre/plagiarism/.

    To maintain a fair and equitable system for all students, you are expected to submit your work by the due date. Students should start early on assignments so that foreseeable pressures like work or assessment for other courses do not delay you completing assignments for this course on time. A late assignment (without prior arrangement) will be penalised by a mark reduction for each day that it is late. Assignments that are submitted late will be penalised at 5% of the potential grade per day.

    Return of Assignments
    The lecturer will aim to mark and return assignments to students within 3-4 days period from the due date with written feedback. Students will be able to access their marked assignments from their MyUni web site.

    Grade Review / Reconsideration
    Students (or groups) who believe their work should receive a different grade should apply in writing within 48 hours of the publication of the grades. They must write/email directly to their marker, and copy to the course coordinators, an analytical piece, in which they give strong reasons on why they believe they have achieved the requirements. Students who choose to apply for a review or reconsideration must be logical and concise in their appeal, and provide as much detail as possible. Claims like “I believe I have done to the requirements and deserve a better grade” will not be accepted. It is at the marker’s discretion whether the work should be reviewed or reconsidered. If the application is accepted, a different marker will conduct a review/reconsideration independent from the original grade, and the outcome can be a higher grade, no change, or a lower grade, and this new grade will be final.
    Course Grading

    Grades for your performance in this course will be awarded in accordance with the following scheme:

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
