Assessment StrategiesThis course makes use of a wide range of strategies to assess and give feedback.Summative assessment: You will be assessed in a variety of ways that measure your learningagainst the learning outcomes for each module. You will have up to 2 summative assessmentpoints per module. You will be given the opportunity to book a 1:1 session with a module tutor afterthe assessment to receive feedback on the work submitted and grade awarded, as this will helpidentify areas for improvement and development. These forms of assessment have been chosen togive a range of methods for demonstrating knowledge and skills, to practice professionally relevantskills, and to build towards a portfolio of work.Formative assessment: Non-mark bearing (formative) assessment also forms an important partof the assessment process. Formative assessment includes all the feedback received from tutorsand in peer-review sessions. It provides the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on workat various stages of each module. You can use this feedback to shape the work being submittedfor summative assessment.Certain modules include assessments with a reflective component, where you will situate yourdevelopment in relation to, for example, environmental sustainability, gender and sexuality,creative approaches to enterprise, ego and personal insight, responsible business in society,working with and for communities, emotional intelligence in business contexts, or mental and©ICTM Page 4 of 27physical health and wellbeing. This is to ensure you are engaged with the whole system ofbusiness and entrepreneurial thinking, including its social and cultural elements and impacts,preparing you to be emotionally intelligent and future-conscious leaders in your chosen fields.Feedback: Feedback can occur at any time and can be verbal or written, individual or group,formal or informal, peer or tutor, summative or formative. It is a key part of the assessment strategyof the course. Tutor feedback will be given as part of all summative assessment and will refer tothe strengths and weaknesses of your submitted work. All feedback is designed to help you onfuture modules and assignments.Assessment Methods are tailored for each module and reflect their particular Aims andLearning Outcomes. Assignments are designed to facilitate learning and nurture thedevelopment of knowledge, competencies and critically reflective thinking and practiceAssessment methods will be clearly explained in module guides.Typical assessment methods for this course may include:• Individual and group industry reports• Presentations and pitches• Critical evaluations• Business case studies• Individual and group reports• Portfolios of production work• Responses to live briefs• Short reflective essays8.

In this module you’ll build knowledge of cultural contexts forBig Data, examples of how data is a resource and a product, considerations for mitigating risks associated withprivacy and data ethics. This will culminate in a data-centric game where teams will aim to manage, integrateand use different forms of data to achieve specific outcomes.Broadly, across the module students will build skills in finding and analysing data in the pursuit of business goals.We’ll look at data in relation to project parameters, for example everyday business analytics used to trackprogress and make decisions; you’ll also use limited datasets to project hypotheses, exploring how data can helpus effectively ‘futurecast’ in many scenarios, and will also critically assess the limitations of data-basedforecasting.Working with data in this module involves designing iterative cycles of data management, including datageneration and gathering, collation, analysis, data-informed decision-making, assessment of outcomes, andrefinement of processes. Students will examine the effects of data on business models, product development,and customer engagement, and consider this from perspectives of managers, marketers and entrepreneurs.They will also think critically about data; after all, data is just bits of information, and we can define and use thisin many ways, some yet to be discovered.Module-Specific Employability SkillsCollaborative working Operatingcommercially Problem-SolvingResearch & AnalysisUnderstanding DataResearch and Analysis©ICTM Page 7 of 27Understanding DataLearning Outcomes LO#LearningOutcomeNameLearning Outcome DescriptionAssessmentCriteriaCategory1Synthesize component concepts and characteristics of sustainableprocess as an area of academic and applied study, in order togenerate original ideas and propose alternative solutionsPROCESS2Formulate appropriate decisions in complex and unpredictablecontexts in which data may be limited or contradictory, applyingcreativity and risk management appropriately.None3Evaluate the development of your creative and ethical leadershipskills in a real-world environment.None4Apply a justified systematic approach to research methodology anddemonstrate advanced information skillsNone5Accurately deploy established techniques of analysis to criticallyevaluate arguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data (thatmay be incompleteNone6Produce persuasive communications regarding information, ideas,problems and solutions to identified specialist and/or non-specialistaudiences.None7Design your ongoing learning and continuing personal andprofessional development through self-appraisal, reflection and selfmanagementANALYSIS8Argue individual positions to formulate safe and effectivesolutions within a team, whilst recognising and respectingopposing professional opinions and the values of inclusivityNone ©ICTM Page 8 of 27Assessment Methods AssessmentMethodDescription ofAssessment Method%LearningOutcomesAssessedCompulsoryPOData analytics portfolio1001, 5, 7Compulsory Assessment CriteriaModes of delivery Module Target Learner Hours: 200ActivityHoursLecture6Seminar18Project supervision36Tutorial10Independent Learning Hours: 130 Indicative list of resourcesRecommended ReadingMain TextbooksBourgeois, D.T., Smit, J.L., Wang, S., Mortati, J.
