8 clear and appropriate relation of theory to practice; examples of analysis of practice to support and/or question established theory; full bibliography and appropriate referencing; Marks above 80 will only be given to work considered to be outstanding and original both in the way it is written and in its ability to integrate theory and practice. Assignments achieving a mark of (score B) This grade will be assigned to work which is considered to be of a high standard and which meets every criterion. However, it may not show the depth of understanding nor the breadth of reading as work graded with an A: meeting the brief of the assessment task completely; being written in the recommended format and of an appropriate length; using relevant examples, which are analyzed; a range of recent, relevant and appropriate reading; relation of theory to practice; adequate referencing and a full bibliography; Assignments achieving a mark of (score C) Work graded at this level will be sound and will address the assignment brief and meet the majority of the criteria. Students should include work drawn from their own experience where appropriate, which at points will be more than purely descriptive: meeting the brief of the assessment task; being written in the recommended format and of an appropriate length; examples from practice, which are often more descriptive than evaluative; some reading, perhaps not as wide, recent or relevant as possible; providing a bibliography; Assignments achieving a mark of (score D) Work at this level will be of a generally low standard and will barely meet the stated criteria: lacking precision about the brief of the assignment, but just meeting the necessary criteria; barely meeting the requirements set; attempting to engage critically at points; being descriptive rather than critically evaluative or analytical; making assertions without providing evidence at points; attempting to link theory with practice; limited references to reading; 8 Page
