Research Paper

Length: 4-5

Partial drafts (optional) Due: 4/6/20 via BB

Final Drafts Due: pending date on BB

 

The goals of this assignment are to help you:

  • become more knowledgeable about finding and using varied research sources
  • further develop your critical thinking skills and back up your points with evidence
  • become more adept at synthesizing information and developing informed views
  • discipline yourself to follow a scholarly research format to document in-text sources and a reference page (bibliography)
  • compose a well organized, clear, conciseresearch paper to expand your knowledge on a subject pertaining to this course

Topic: Your research paper project begins with a fact finding search on some current or historical issues pertaining to the Caribbean. Your research topic can examine issues not discussed in class as long as they relate to the Caribbean and is approved by your instructor. We will dedicate a couple class sessions to brainstorming possible research topics.

Approach: Your paper does not have a chance to be substantive unless you have substantive sources. Find 7 to 10 VARIED (NOT all internet sites, for example) sources – including academic journal articles and professional publications, Internet sources, and possibly (but not required) an interview.

Your paper should contain these parts:

Introduction: Your introductory material should set up your topic for your audience. It may be more than one paragraph in length, but at some point, very early in the paper you then need to start the body of the paper. Your thesis should come at the end of your introductory material. State your thesis in the form of a sentence or two. It should not be in the form of a question. Your thesis should be a brief statement, in your own words, that points out the major issues about this topic that you discovered in your research.

Body of Paper: The body of your paper should provide supporting evidence to support your thesis, in a logical, fully developed manner. For each new topic which supports your overall thesis, provide a topic sentence which is, in effect, the thesis for that sub-topic. Do not use subheadings; you should use the topic sentences to transition from one related point to the next.

A writer of a research paper should synthesize the information gained from sources and weave them into a well ordered discourse, using the sources as evidence to support key points.

Conclusion: Your conclusion should make some “wrap up” statements about what you learned regarding your chosen topic. Also, address any issues that may still not be resolved for you.

Format:

Follow MLA Guidelines

Margins – 1 inch top, bottom, left, right

Legal Issues And Disciplinary Actions

You have been in your role as Human Resources Manager of Acme Manufacturing for 6 months now. The employee hostilities that existed when you started your job have been resolved. Training was provided to all employees about expected behaviors and disciplinary actions, and the organization is now well-aware of requirements. The shift workers have received disciplinary action resulting in a written warning and now understand the importance of appropriate behavior in the workplace. The shift workers are now back at their jobs and are happy to be there!

There has been little communication regarding how the company is doing since your arrival as the Human Resource Manager of Acme Manufacturing. Leadership of the company has noticed this as well, and the CEO has called you to her office for a meeting.

The CEO explains that the company does not have a compensation structure for the nonrepresented management employees. She explains that there is a need for an overall job analysis process and that this work must be completed and approved by the board during its meeting in 2 months. She hands you a report from an external consultant to the board’s Compensation Committee outlining the elements needed, as follows:

  • Develop and explain the different requirements that could be used in the recruitment and selection process for managerial positions in the corporation. This should include a discussion about what may be unique about managerial requirements as compared to other roles.
  • Explain the important steps of job analysis, job design, job description, and job specification as they relate to this project. Ensure that you provide substantial detail in your response.
  • How would you evaluate the relative worth of these management jobs in the company using the job evaluation process? Where would these managerial roles fall within the company’s compensation structure? Ensure that you explain how you made this decision.

Prepare a 5–7-page report for the CEO that responds to the 3 requirements listed above. The report will be given to the Board of Directors, so it must be formatted professionally, and you should cite any references used in proper APA format.

Assessment Task

 

You are required to develop a database driven website using appropriate web technologies for a scenario of your choice.  Your website must meet the following criteria:

 

1) Database

 

The website must utilise a database.

 

You are expected to design the database as you see fit for this assessment however it is expected that you will have a users table that holds all the users’ records.

 

You should also have at least two different types of users (for example, an admin user and a standard user).

 

You should include a database schema in your report

 

 

 

2) Back-End

 

You are not expected to use a back-end framework.  Instead you should demonstrate your own implementation using PHP.

 

 

3) Front-End

 

Your website should provide a means for the user to login as well as a dashboard/main page from which the key or main functionality of the website can be accessed.

 

It is expected that a basic solution will be based around standard technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

 

 

4) Course Specific Skills

 

In addition to the above requirements you should demonstrate your understanding and implementation of web technologies that focus on the following:

 

Back End Front End
 

API:

 

The back-end should be implemented as an API, that is, a set of modules with functions that allow at least the basic Create, Retrieve, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations to be executed.  This should be done using PHP.

 

A more advanced solution should some incorporate security features such as protection against common attacks (e.g. SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks) and perform robust error checking.

 

Database:

 

The back-end should utilise a database.  A basic solution should consist of normalised tables which store and allow retrieval of login details as well as information relevant to the scenario.

 

Technologies:

 

The front-end should utilise a core web technologies (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). A basic solution should layout the user interface using suitable semantic elements and provide a basic look and feel.  A more advanced solution should provide a fully responsive front-end that supports progressive enhancement.

 

User Experience:

 

The front-end should incorporate  features that enhance the user experience.  A basic solution should provide a clear way to navigate the site.  A more advanced solution should demonstrate the application of techniques that enhance the user experience and perform data validation.

 

 

 

 

Deliverables

 

It is expected that you will produce two deliverables.

 

– An implementation.  This is your website deployed on provided server.

– A report.  This will summarise your implementation.

 

You need to complete both elements to pass this assessment.

 

 

The Implementation

 

Your implementation will be graded as follows:

 

 

For a Grade D

 

Develop a basic website that allows a user to create, search, view and delete entries stored in a database.  It is expected you will use standard web technologies such as HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL.

 

For a Grade C

 

In addition to the requirements for Grade D, develop a website with:

 

a basic back-end API consisting of modules of functions that allow the creating, viewing, updating and deleting of database entries.

 

a front-end that utilises the back-end API to populate the web pages and suitably structures and presents the content providing an intuitive way to navigate and/or utilise the key functionality of the website.

 

 

For a Grade A – B

 

In addition to the requirements for Grade C, the website provides:

 

A mobile-first, responsive website that complies with modern standards, utilises an appropriate framework and/or toolkit and supports progressive enhancement.

 

The website will have a suitable back-end API and be database driven.  For the higher grades the implementation should incorporate security features and the application UX principles. For full marks the implementation should demonstrate the application of techniques beyond the taught aspects of this module.

 

 

 

 

The Report

 

Your report should provide a summary of your implementation.  Your report will be graded as follows:

 

For a Grade D

 

The report provides a summary of the key functionality that has been implemented and is consistent with the solution that has been submitted.  This should include details of the technical aspects or workings of the website (e.g. explains how a web page fetches data from the database and presents this to the user).  The report should also include an appropriate database schema.

 

 

For a Grade C

 

In addition to the requirements for Grade D, develop a website with:

 

The report summarises both the front-end and back-end aspects of the  implementation including the user experience, the front-end framework, back-end API and the database.  The report also includes a brief summary and evidence to demonstrate the use of a version control repository as well as the incremental development of the website (e.g. commit history).

 

 

For a Grade A – B

 

In addition to the requirements for Grade C, the website provides:

 

The report provides a concise and consistent summary of the implementation with strong supporting evidence of its development.  This should summarise all functionality that is equivalent to a Grade A – B implementation as indicated in the marking criteria for the implementation.

 

 

 

How and what to submit

 

You should use the assessment submission link provided on the Solent Online Learning (SOL) page for the module in order to submit your solution.

 

You should submit a zip file containing your report and the website implementation including an SQL file with an export of your database.

 

The website should also be deployed on the Edward 2 server and should not be modified once submission has been made.

Extenuating Circumstances

The University’s Extenuating Circumstances procedure is in place if there are genuine circumstances that may prevent a student submitting an assessment. If students are not ‘fit to study’, they can either request an extension to the submission deadline of 5 working days or they can request to submit the assessment at the next opportunity (Defer).  In both instances students must submit an EC application with relevant evidence.   If accepted by the EC Panel there will be no academic penalty for late submission or non-submission dependent on what is requested.  Students are reminded that EC covers only short term issues (20 working days) and that if they experience longer term matters that impact on learning then they must contact a Student Achievement Officer for advice.

 

A summary of guidance notes for students is given below:
