INF11103 Management of Software Projects – Coursework 2 marks and feedback
|As usual, a huge amount of work has clearly gone into this, but there is still some work to do in communicating it in fluent English.|
|Abstract, Introduction and contextual discussion||10||P5||Sets out context and content of the paper well. Be clearer about what the paper is aiming to achieve though.|
|Research activity, range of materials used and topic coverage.||10||D2||Excellent range of sources, though I would avoid using multiple papers from the same author if they are all saying much the same thing|
|Synthesis and analysis of the main issue under discussion||20||D1||Excellent – You cover a lot of ground. However sometimes there is a sense of getting lost in the details.|
|Discussion of topic and conclusions drawn within the wider ERP context||20||D1||Excellent insights|

I’m well aware how turgid my English can be, even for academic writing. I think this will be with me until they nail the lid down. Unfortunately I can’t yet download the annotated piece from Moodle (Napier’s virtual learning environment), so I may well end up copying and pasting annotations into a local copy. The unannotated version is here.
So it appears I’ve passed this module. If so, I now have enough taught-module credits for the MSc. (I took an extra module this in the second term of 2011-12.) I won’t update the infographic until the module mark is released.
