Grading guidance

This grading guidance section explains in more detail what a submission for this assessment

should include in order to achieve a mark at the threshold, good and excellent standards.

 

Threshold

You will have produced a clear and concise report which explains and describes with some critical discussion the challenges of managing a project programme, the need to address the key members of the professional team and stakeholders who may impact the delivery of the programme, and value, cost, and quality control. Your report will include references to current best practice that you have found via research. You will have clearly presented and applied your answer to the given scenario. All discussions should relate to the scenario and should be supported by the minimum number of references.

 

 

Good

You will have met the criteria for Threshold and produced a relevant and sound report which critically appraises the most effective ways to manage the programme relative to the scenario. You will have systematically addressed the possible challenges of managing a project programme, and the need to address key members of the professional team and stakeholders who may impact the successful delivery of the project programme. There will be effective critical discussion of the optimisation and control of quality, cost, and value. These should be clearly articulated with evidence of competent self-directed research of current best practice and use of references to support the evaluation of project management challenges raised. All discussions should relate to the scenario and should be supported by a wider range of quality literature sources above the minimum number of references.

 

 

Excellent

You will have met the criteria for Good and produced a highly relevant and professionally produced report suitable for director level discussion, which rigorously and comprehensively critically appraises the options and validates the most effective ways to manage the project related to the given scenario. You will provide perceptive coverage of the possible challenges in the management of the project. There will be comprehensive critical discussion of the impact of the professional team and key stakeholders and the optimisation and control of quality, cost, and value. These should be clearly articulated with evidence of sophisticated independent research of current best practice and use of quality references to support the arguments relating to the construction management challenges raised. You will comprehensively provide an evaluation and professional judgement of alternative options to address the challenges of project management. These discussions will be supported by a very broad range of literature sources including relevant material that demonstrates in-depth, independent study.
