  /20 Z P            ->               C D           ->               HD
1. A description of the four chosen people and their connection to the problem your team is investigating  

 

2

The chosen problem space and/or descriptions of the four interviewees are unclear or insufficiently described. The chosen problem space is introduced and a generally clear description of each of the four interviewees is provided. Sometimes the information provided about the interviewees does not explain clearly their link to the problem space. The chosen problem space is introduced in a clear and sophisticated manner. You have provided a clear and concise description of each interviewee and have provided a justification of their link to the problem space.

 

2. What were your motivations in asking them particular questions? What types of questions were the most effective in getting information from the interviewees?  

 

9

Your justification for asking questions is not clear and there are less than three academic sources drawn on to support this. There is no explanation of the lessons you learned about what questions were effective in eliciting the best responses.

 

A generally well-organised overview of the type of questions asked is provided. While the student has tried to interpret the reasons why certain questions were more successful than others, there is little critical reflection and only minimal use of academic references.

 

A list of questions you asked should also be included in the appendix (Note: Appendix does not count towards word length)

The student has provided a sophisticated justification of their reasoning for asking different questions. When thinking about why certain questions were successful the student has shown evidence of a sophisticated analysis supported by substantive reference to academic literature.

 

A list of questions you asked should also be included in the appendix (Note: Appendix does not count towards word length)

3. Three insights you have gained about the problem that you didn’t know previously. Why are these insights significant?  

9

Insights about the problem space are limited, poorly explained and/or insufficiently supported by the evidence gained from the interviews.

 

 

Some insights about the problem space are identified and supported by basic links to the evidence gathered in the interviews.

 

 

A range of insights about the problem space is identified with the student showing the ability to prioritise certain issues in the context of the word limits of the exercise.
