Assessment Type
Presentaঞon

Descripঞon
This assessment encourages students to expand and deepen their conceptual
knowledge of big data within real-world applicaঞons (e.g., business, health). They do
this through discussion of a data analyঞcs concept (e.g. big data framework, data
visualisaঞon, natural language processing) in pracঞce. In their presentaঞon, they are
required to provide evidence that they have researched the concept extensively using
informaঞon resources such as academic journals, professional press and the popular
media. It is expected that they will demonstrate both reflecঞon and analysis related to
the data analyঞcs concept
posed, and produce an arঞculate and concise response conveying evidence-based
understanding of the concepts and topics.

This folder contains the specificaঞon of the assessment item 2. Over the course of the trimester, a list of topics and
presentaঞon slots will be added.
Important: This is an individual assessment item. Hence, while we use the group funcঞon to make it easier to select
presentaঞon slots and topics, you will need to prepare and deliver your presentaঞon as an
individual assessment
item
(as per the assessment specificaঞon and the course outline). Hence, in case two students choose the same topic
for the presentaঞon in any parঞcular week, these will have to be two completely separate presentaঞons with
absolutely
no interacঞon and no collaboraঞon between the students. This is not a group assessment item.
