Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Lectures will deliver core material and will cover LOs 1-5. Tutorials and practical sessions using relevant software are used to help develop a deeper understanding of module content and the practical application of what is learned. Assessment (formative
and summative)


Assessment (formative and summative)
Assessment will include two pieces of coursework. The first coursework will take the form a formal business report and will assess LO1, LO2 and LO5.
The second piece of coursework will assess LO3 and LO4. This will involve the creation of a Performance Dashboard, produced from a given large data set, using industry standard software tools and techniques. A presentation will be prepared to demonstrate the Dashboard and to analyse and evaluate the product.



Formative Assessment:
Formative feedback is provided during tutorial/practical sessions throughout the module. During these sessions, module tutors assess and evaluate student performance on tasks relevant to the summative assessment, providing timely feedback which supports the development of students’ capabilities. Online quizzes will also be available in Moodle for students to test their knowledge and understanding throughout the module.

Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment will include two pieces of coursework. The first coursework will take the form a formal business report and will assess LO1, LO2 and LO5.

The second piece of coursework will involve the creation of a Performance Dashboard, produced from a given large data set, using industry standard software tools and techniques. A presentation will be prepared to demonstrate the Dashboard and to analyse and evaluate the product. This will assessment LO3 and LO4.
