Notes on assessment

The 40% assessment for the "Major written paper" is  for the final written version only, not for the draft version you distribute  electronically or for the version you present. The length of the paper should  fall between 10 to 15 pages, double-spaced with 1 inch margins. Syndicate members  will receive the same grades for the essay they submit. If for some reason  (your reason, not mine)  you or other members of your syndicate cannot  submit an essay together you may/will submit one on your own - even if you  decide to do a presentation together. The 10% for presentation in the workshop  will be based on the critical reasoning skills you demonstrate as a presenter  of your own paper (5%) and in your role(s) as a discussant, formal and informal (5%)..[extra 5% up for grabs for posting on WebCT comments insights thoughts that will be helpful to the presenters, up to THURS Sept 29]
