Rsc2601 Assignment 2

2 Dear Student The academic semester is drawing to a close and your assignments have been completed. By now you should start preparing for the examination. In this tutorial letter we comment on the assignments and give guidance for the examination. When reference is made to “the Study Guide” in this tutorial letter, we refer to the Only Study Guide for RSC2601. The Study Guide is your prescribed study material for this module. When reference is made to “Tutorial Letter 101” in this tutorial letter, we refer to the Tutorial Letter RSC2601/101/3/2016. 1. THE ASSIGNMENTS 1.1 General The module Research in the Social Scienceshas two assignments, which were compulsory. The marks that you have obtained for the assignments will count towards a semester mark which will contribute 20% towards your final mark.The assignments consisted of 40 multiple-choice items (20 per assignment) compiled from the content of the study material. The purpose of the assignments was to: familiarise you with the content of the module help you to work systematically through the research process provide you with an opportunity to think critically about the course content help you to learn/memorise important facts help you to prepare for the examination. Before you look at the comments, consider the purpose of the assignments. Remember, multiple-choice items are a means of teaching and testing different levels of cognitive skills and thinking abilities. It is not merely testing recall, although memory is always involved. We suggest that you follow a specific work procedure when working through the comments on the assignments. You can follow this procedure: DO NOTmark the correct answers given below on your Tutorial Letter 101. If you had done so when completing the assignments we suggest that you erase such marks. Keep a record of your own and the correct answers on a separate sheet of paper. The reason for this suggestion is that it will help you gain the maximum benefit from what you learn, while working through the comments below and when revising for the examination. If you have already marked the correct option for each item (question), this will become a pointless or less effective learning experience. By keeping the correct options listed separately you are forcing yourself to rethink the reasons for the answers every time you revise the assignment.
