Assessment task

 Your portfolio should capture rich ideas, resources and innovative practice around workflow analysis & management within the frame of the four topics (Discovering Processes, Business Process Technologies, As-Is Workflow Modelling, and Process Characteristics and Process Implementation). To achieve this, you are to conduct a research of the Internet on the topics as listed at the top of this assessment detail. Search for items related to the topic. The items you may include in the portfolio could be YouTube videos, clips from lectures and/or tutorials, articles, interesting readings, relevant websites and your own work that you produced in the tutorials. You should review the items you find around the specified topic and select a minimum of 4 items for each week and link them to your portfolio. To start with, you need to create a portfolio on Mahara with 4 pages (i.e. 1 page for each of the weekly topics listed above) and then each page should have 4 items with a justification for each item.

In the justification, write a discussion that firstly provides a brief summary of the chosen item and secondly outline why you chose the item i.e. why you thought the item chosen was appropriate and/or relevant to the topic. Your justification for each item should be around 100 words (100 words for each item * 4 items = 400 words on each page).

 

You are not to upload files from the Internet, as you do not own copyright, and if you do upload files without permission, this will be treated as plagiarism. You should provide hyperlinks to the files/webpages you refer to in your discussion.

 

Harvard referencing format and citations are to be used to substantiate your discussion.

Submission

 

You will use Mahara (CQU Portfolio) to gather and present each weekly portfolio. Unfortunately, Mahara has not been fully integrated with Moodle, and therefore we will use Moodle to send you feedback on the marking.

 

The weekly portfolio is to be submitted by creating a Secret URL in Mahara and pasting the URL into Moodle for marking and feedback.

 

Details about how to create the Secret URL are on the COIT 12203 Moodle unit site.

 

Note: We will be using the CQU Portfolio in the Business Analysis unit that follows this one. You might want to consider gathering items into your portfolio that you can use in future. You can have items in your portfolio that are not shared with anyone or share a particular view with a specific group. In this way, you can build up many different views for many different purposes. It is common practice for people to build a portfolio to share with prospective employers, which is one use of your portfolio. As with your blog, please remain objective in your evaluation of items you collect in the each of the views.

 

As Mahara is only available to you while studying at CQU, you can export your portfolio when you have finished your studies or transfer it to one of many free portfolios.

 

All assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources). If you are found to have plagiarised material or if you have used someone else’s words without appropriate referencing, or you have uploaded files without permission you will be penalised for plagiarism which could result in zero marks for the whole assignment. In some circumstances a more severe penalty may be imposed as per University policy.

 

Please note the difference in marks for eportfolios (1 & 2) and (3 & 4). Eportfolios 1 & 2 have been allocated a maximum of 6 marks while eportfolios 3 & 4 have been allocated a maximum of 9 marks. This could enable you to progress to a possibly higher mark and rectify any shortcomings as you progress through the term.
