FINC20018 / FINC20006: Assessment Task 2: Individual or Group Assignment(Please refer to eCP for the due date)

This is a group assignment for on campus students and the group should consist of not more than 2 students. For off campus students, students can also do this assignment in group of 2 but this is likely to be difficult. Therefore off campus students can do this assignment individually. If students do this assignment as a group, only one member of the group will submit the assignment online by uploading it in Moodle. Please make sure you click on the submit button after uploading or else the submission will remain as a draft and will not be marked.

The marksheet of this assignment is your coversheet and the names of the students in the group must be clearly indicated, or if you are doing individually, your name is to be written on the marksheet. The rubric on the marksheetis to let you understand how the marks are distributed and awarded for each question.

For students doing the assignment in group of 2, by completing the names in the marksheet, you are acknowledging that both of you would have contributed almost similar amount of time and effort and that the same mark will be awarded to both. Should one student believes he/she should get more marks than the other student, both of you must make a signed declaration of how the marks are to be divided and this pdf declaration is to be upload separately on the Moodle site.

Please provide answers / solutions to the following Case Studies:

Case Study 1: Chapter 1 (page 25). Answer all four questions

Case Study 2: Chapter 11 (page 397-398). Answer question (a) and (c) only.

Please present the answers as a report format. No Executive Summary or Index page is required. A short introduction and a short conclusion will be ideal. Word count for Case 1 should be approximately 1,400 words (or not longer than 4 pages). Case 2 requires you to show calculation. Excluding the calculation, the word count for the analysis of both parts to this case should be approximately 500-600 words (or no longer than 1 1/2 pages). Students are to write essay type responses in your own words. Marks will be awarded for clarity of explanations and paraphrasing from other sources including the textbooks. Concise description and correctness of answers are also important together with any diagrams or figures where applicable.

For calculation questions, marks will be awarded for the accuracy in the calculations, showing the right formulae to be used, the steps shown in arriving at the answers, the correct answers and any diagrams/timeline as required.Correct answers alone will give you 50% of the total mark.

Where copying from other sources results in high % similarity, marks will be deducted as shown on the marksheet. Therefore, proper use of in-text referencing is important and avoid direct quotes. Turnitin will be used to check % similarity. Please do not copy the questions to be answered from the textbook as it would be reflected as part of the % similarity. As a guide, % similarity in excess of 20% will not be awarded the full mark for this category.

The assignment will be marked out of 80 marks but will be scaled down to 20 marks. Penalty for late submission is 5% per calendar day, ie, 1 mark per calendar day (including Saturday and Sunday).
