2. Group Presentation – worth 10% and will be presented / submitted on Friday Week 10 at 11.59pm. Strict adherence to the 10 minute limit is expected.
• Present and discuss the summary of your report (part A and B) in 10 minutes.
• The Presentation will be done in class or video recording. Your lecturer will advise which is more appropriate. Whether in-class or video presentation, all members must present. The group will be marked down if not all members present.
• Video link must be uploaded to a publicly-viewable video sharing platform (ex. Youtube, Dropbox, Google drive) and the video link uploaded on Blackboard.
• A video presentation consists of both images and audio. For this reason, a plain Power Point presentation showing slides even with accompanying voice recording is not considered a video and, hence, not allowed.
Important Reminders:
Lecturer approval of chosen case:
1. You must email your lecturer your list of group members and chosen case by week 4.
2. You must obtain approval by email from your lecturer of your group and chosen case before starting work on it. You must NOT start work on your group assignment until your lecturer approves your group and case. Please note: failure to obtain lecturer approval will result in a failing mark for the entire group for this assignment.
Submission:
1. All group report submissions must be done online and run through SafeAssign. No hard copies are to be submitted. Only one group member needs to submit for the whole group.
2. Please fill in the “Rubric Group Report” sheet (available in Blackboard under “Assignments and Due dates) and attach as a cover sheet to your group report and upload on Blackboard.
3. Each group must email a ‘’Peer Evaluation of Individual Participation in Group Assignment” sheet to their lecturer (available in Blackboard under “Assignments and Due dates).
4. Non-submission of either the group report or video presentation link (if a group is doing a video) on Blackboard/SafeAssign (if doing a video presentation) is equivalent to non-submission, which will merit a mark of 0 (zero) for the group assignment.
5. This is a group assignment and is meant to be worked on in groups. Groups of less than 3 and more 5 members will receive a penalty of 50% from the total final mark.
6. Reports must be submitted via SafeAssign on Blackboard and show a similarity percentage figure. Any group report that does not show a SafeAssign similarity percentage will not be marked and be required to re-submit.
7. Late submissions will be subject to Holmes Institute policy on student assessment submission and late penalties (please refer to subject outline and Student handbook).

8. Assignments are expected to observe proper referencing in accordance with a generally accepted system of citation (ex, Australian Guide to Legal Citation or Harvard System).
9. A properly referenced assignment showing in-text citation is critical to passing and obtaining a good mark in the group assignment.
SafeAssign similarity percentage:
1. Plagiarism in any form, shape or manner is unacceptable under any circumstances and will be dealt with according to Institute policy on plagiarism.
2. In general, for written reports, a SafeAssign similarity percentage of 25% or below is acceptable. Regardless of the similarity figure, all group reports must use in-text citation and observe proper referencing rules.
Identification of individual work:
1. To ensure that all students participate equitably in the group assignment and that students are responsible for the academic integrity of all components of the assignment, each group must complete the following table which identifies which student/students are responsible for the various sections of the assignment:
