Assessment Task

This assessment item consists of two parts: Part A, and Part B. For each part you have to create an e-journal using a software tool named Mahara and export your e-journal into Moodle as an html file.

Assessment 1: Part A (1000 words) - worth 10 marks

Complete readings in the weekly sections (esp. Week 1 and Week 2) on the unit Moodle site. In your reading, you need to analyse the issues involved. Try to jot down key points when reading through a concept. Using your learned concepts, your prior knowledge and related work experience, write down what you have found as missing or doubtful in the topic discussions, e.g. which idea discussed was what you think was not OK. You also write what and how you see it needed to improve, along the page margins when reading through each reading.

Organisation of e-journal

     Organise your journal entry under the headings of Synopsis, reflection, and critique

To effectively present your work, you organise it under three sub-headings for each topic, i.e.

(1.) Synopsis: Summarise your learned key concepts from each topic,

(2.)Reflection: provide succinct reflective examples or logical-thinking discussions to demonstrate your in-depth understanding on the topic, and

(3.) Critique: point out shortcomings in the readings foreach topic, e.g. what is not good enough in article A,how it could be done better, lack of a specific sub-topic discussion in a reading, through an e-journal undereach of the topics below:

  1. The core competences (as Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK)) that a business analyst should have;
  2. The critical skills that organisations need a business analystto possess in order to successfully design and develop a new technology or for technological redevelopment;
  3. The models that can be used for strategy formulation analysing the external and internal environment; and
  4. Relationship between organisational strategy and knowledge audit plan.

As the word limit for Part A is 1000 words in total for the 4 e-journal entries, you are advised to gauge a work limit of about 250 words per entry for each e-journal. 

Assessment 1: Part B (1500 words)- worth 20 marks

Create an e-journal focusing on the topics:

  1. Leadership and Team building skills required by a Business Analyst
  2. Key processes involved in understanding the business context
  3. Briefly describe the suitability and appropriateness of four of the investigation techniques in requirement elicitation.

These topics are covered in Week 3, and Week 4. You should complete the readings suggested in the Weeks 3, and 4 sections provided in the unit Moodle website, before writing your journal entry. 

This assessment task is also designed to assess your ability to develop the required graduate attributes of knowledge, communication skills, cognitive skills, research, self-management, and ethical and professional responsibility, stipulated in the unit profile. Therefore, you should

  • reflect on the topics you read
  • research and get additional readings as required
  • write clearly using correct grammar, structure, and formatting
  • follow the requirements and submit in time
  • avoid plagiarism

Organisation of e-journal

     Organise your journal entry under the headings of Synopsis, reflection, and critique

  1. Synopsis: Here you provide a summary of each topic in journal entry.
  2. Reflection: You display your deeper understanding of each of the topics. Please link the topics as they logically follow in the business analysis process. Compare and identify the differences. Show your in-depth understanding of each topic. Use examples or cases to explain your points further. Explain as logical-thinking discussions which you may or may not refer to your examples or cases.
  3. Critique: Here you critically analyse the practical application of the knowledge and understanding that you have gained in the professional practice of a Business Analyst or yourself. Discuss what are lacking, what are not good enough, and ways to improve them. Explain why one or more things in a reading need to be questioned.

I have tried other sites for assignment help but the result that Insta Research has produced outweighs others. Since I am weak at writing and shaping the data logically, I am glad I took help from this site. Thanks to my writer for such a great quality of the assignment in Business.
