B302 Coursework case study question 1 summary

Academic year 2011/12



Marks are provisional and subject to plagiarism detection using Turnitin and approval at the Unit Assessment Board. The coursework (marks from question 1 and 2 combined) contributed 40% to the B302 unit mark. Students may view their individual coursework marks by using these steps:
  1. Login to Mosaic.
  2. View their individual coursework page. The coursework mark will be displayed at the top left corner of the page.

The coursework assignment and the coursework submissions are available online. There were 117 coursework submissions from 118 registered students.

The most common weakness related to the presumption of guilt regarding Adam. The information provided in the case study question did not confirm that Adam was directly linked to the 3 CDs. Many responses did not examine perspectives that expanded further beyond Adam's involvement and degree of guilt. On the positive side, a number of responses recognized the possibility that making copies of original software CDs may serve archival and distribution purposes.

One advantage of the coursework compared to the exam is the ability to perform research. It was surprising that only a small number of students actually conducted research into the activation method for the Adobe Creative Suite software. In the case of software theft, general speculative statements were mostly correct, but do not have as much impact as solid facts and figures. There was one notable exception in which the student directly asked Adobe online support.

Some responses were written using bullet lists and not using paragraphs. Although no penalties were applied in this coursework – such practices are not acceptable. For coursework question 2 and the exam, write your responses using structured paragraphs. Clarity of thought is affected by degree of structure and organisation.

Many responses with marks of 5 and some responses with marks of 6 had a weak relationship between the decision and the concepts discussed in the response. In those responses, the contents seem to be more a collection of facts and opinions rather than the development of how the student reached a decision.

In many responses, the decisions could have been improved with a more specific action. For example, a number of decisions involved the act of approaching Adam for further discussion. But, such an act can be done in many different ways and at many different occasions and time. Analysis of a more specific action would also raise your awareness of possible difficulties involving such an action. For example, the act of notifying management may seem simple at the surface, but, quickly becomes difficult once considerations are made for the trail that digital communications leave behind and the circumstances in which there were only 2 people in the office at lunch time.

Responses with marks of 6 could have been increased if there had been a more specific example of reflection on personal experiences. Ethics and philosophy are dry topics if they cannot be applied or found in our personal experiences.
