Assessment Task This is the first assessment of the unit, which is an individual task. Each student will research and find information about a BREEAM assessed building, and research all the necessary documents to understand the environmental assessment of the building. Students can select any type of building as long as it is located in the UK. The selected building should be agreed with your tutor in the first two teaching weeks. The selected buildings should be different, so finding a project and confirming it with the tutor as early as possible is advised. The report should consist of two main parts, the first is to describe the projected and actual credit, how the building is assessed and go through the credits given to rate the building in different categories, and discuss the final rating in comparison to the projected assessment. The second part of the report is to reflect on the assessment process and the way it was commissioned in the case study building then critically evaluate the building in light of the first part findings and making suggestions of ways to earn more efficient credits. Support: To support you as individuals, a significant amount of the seminar time allocated to this unit is devoted to work on the assessment. This means that you will have regular opportunities to plan and discuss the outcomes of your own individual work with colleagues and tutor. Seminars will also provide opportunities for you to discuss the progress of your report and exchange feedback with other individuals. Assessment criteria CriteriaReportA1 – A4Fully referenced research demonstrating exceptional understanding of the implications of using BREEAM as an assessment tool in buildings. Exemplary critical evaluation within modern methods of sustainable assessment. Full justification with advanced reflection and explanation of the awarded credits. Excellently evaluated and exemplary appraisal of the selected case study assessment.B1 – B3Demonstrates accurate and thorough understanding and referenced research of the report subject. It is appropriate and competent with good critical evaluation. Appraisals of selected case study assessment is accurate and competent in abstracting and evaluating the issues and demonstrating sound understanding.C1 – C3Satisfactory explanation and mainly accurate report of the key issues of a sustainable context. Adequate level of understanding and competence with reasonable reference to research. Satisfactory insight is provided. The appraisals are mainly accurate and appropriate.D1 – D3Adequately, referenced researched and reported with limited description of issues with a basic competence of understanding of the context of sustainable assessment methods with some justification and appraisal. Discussions recall the key features with some reasonable, but limited appraisal.F1 – F3Superficial, poorly referenced report with a tendency to description. Lacking some of the innovation detail and application to a sustainable assessment methods. Evaluation of limited research is inadequate and the appraisal is lacking. The critical appraisals have inadequate discussion and evaluation. Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the unit, students should be able to: Knowledge and Understanding K1 Identify, define and explain different assessment methods of sustainable buildings, and their approaches to addressing different environmental burdens. Cognitive Skills C1 Critically evaluate alternative assessment methodologies, assess their appropriateness, and identify how they influence the design and tendering process of sustainable building. C2 Exercise initiative and decision making to select energy assessment methods in complex and unfamiliar contexts within the design and construction process. Practical and Professional Skills P1 Display expertise with data sheets and data analysis tasks. P1 Carry out environmental assessment in different scenarios and contexts. Late Submissions Transferable and Key Skills T1 Engage confidently and competently in communicating information, ideas and data using a range of media and contexts. Late Submission Students are reminded that: If this assessment is submitted late i.e. within 5 working days of the submission deadline, the mark will be capped at 40% if a pass mark is achieved;If this assessment is submitted later than 5 working days after the submission deadline, the work will be regarded as a non-submission and will be awarded a zero;If this assessment is being submitted as a referred piece of work (second or third attempt) then it must be submitted by the deadline date; any Refer assessment submitted late will be regarded as a non-submission and will be awarded a zero. Extenuating Circumstances The University’s Extenuating Circumstances procedure is in place if there are genuine circumstances that may prevent a student submitting an assessment. If students are not ‘fit to study’, they can either request an extension to the submission deadline of 5 working days or they can request to submit the assessment at the next opportunity (Defer). In both instances students must submit an EC application with relevant evidence. If accepted by the EC Panel there will be no academic penalty for late submission or non-submission dependent on what is requested. Students are reminded that EC covers only short term issues (20 working days) and that if they experience longer term matters that impact on learning then they must contact a Student Achievement Officer for advice. A summary of guidance notes for students is given below: Academic Misconduct Any submission must be students’ own work and, where facts or ideas have been used from other sources, these sources must be appropriately referenced. The University’s Academic Handbook includes the definitions of all practices that will be deemed to constitute academic misconduct. Students should check this link before submitting their work. Procedures relating to student academic misconduct are given below: Ethics Policy The work being carried out by students must be in compliance with the Ethics Policy. Where there is an ethical issue, as specified within the Ethics Policy, then students will need an ethics release or an ethical approval prior to the start of the project. The Ethics Policy is contained within Section 2S of the Academic Handbook: Click to access 2s-university-ethics-policy.pdf Grade marking The University uses a letter grade scale for the marking of assessments. Unless students have been specifically informed otherwise their marked assignment will be awarded a letter grade. More detailed information on grade marking and the grade scale can be found on the portal and in the Student Handbook.
