3 Presentation and Written Assessment

Assessment Title
Assignment 3-

Task Description

The assignment question/s will be uploaded on the moodle web page of this unit two weeks prior to start of the term. This assignment has Part A and Part B. There are three questions in Part A. Part B requires the preparation of power Point slides for presentation of your mini-project. This report is based on the information collected from your own company and from resources beyond Learning Guide. If required, your organisation information may be altered to protect confidentiality provided it is still reasonably close to real life assumptions. Besides the content and the formatting of the report, correct referencing is of utmost importance. Use standard file name format and follow the word count limit.

The objectives of Assignment 3 are also to:

  • Develop multi-literacy skills including reflection, communication and presentation skills
  • Explore some of the fundamental concepts of maintenance analysis technique and their application to practical problems
  • Analyse the causes and develop solutions to asset and maintenance management problems
  • Introduce the maintenance safety through quality control and assurance systems and procedures
  • Prepare a PowerPoint Presentation

Key notes to consider when writing your report are:

  • Ensure that you write in full sentence structure ensuring you use the correct tense and grammar
  • Your paragraphs (especially in your discussion) need to have a cohesive flow of the topic being discussed
  • In academic writing , avoid the use of first person (e.g. I, my, ours). That is, reports are to be written in third person (e.g. ‘In the author’s opinion, maintenance management can be described as…’ instead of ‘my understanding of maintenance management is…’)
  • Be sure to clearly and accurately reference other’s ideas, words, figures/tables etc. in accordance with the CQUniversity’s Harvard referencing guide

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
