 指导Assessment

The assessment for this module is based on 100% coursework. The overall objective of the coursework is to enable students to demonstrate their ability to link current thinking and current issues. Students will be expected to use a range of reliable and robust sources to support whatever position they take or argument they put forward in any of the required coursework tasks. This coursework will be divided up as follows:

Details of Assessment Tasks:

Task I (worth 30% of total marks) DEBATE

You will be required, in a team, to undertake a debate in class on the following proposition:
Accounting is neither a science nor an art; it is instead a technical process used to record financial transactions. Debate
Process:
You will be divided into groups of 6 students and within each group students will take a position i.e. some students will support the proposition that accounting is an art, some that it is technical, some that it is a science while others will take the opposite view to these.
The debate requires you to go head to head in class and on the basis of your debate you will be marked. Each group will have a total of 10 minutes and it is suggested that they limit their debate to 7 mins with 3 mins left for class and tutor questions – in case clarification is needed in respect of any of the issues raised in the debate.
Debates will take place on the 3rd December and will be recorded
Task 2 (worth 70%) - Individual essay as follows:
Academic research has no real life relevance and makes no contribution to the development of accounting and/or finance regulation.

Required: write approximately 1,200 -1,500 words (excluding references) on the above proposition.
To complete this exercise, students must carry out research and provide evidence of this research in their essays.
