Interpreting an assignment brief
In order to interpret an assignment, you need to identify a number of key points.
You need to:
● find the command words in each question or task
● determine what content is being assessed
● establish the context of the assignment.
1. Command words
Each task in your assignment will contain a verb that indicates to you the level of the response that you are expected to give. It is important that you interpret these verbs correctly so that you fully recognise the level of demand in each task. The interpretation of command words is addressed on the following page.
It is important to establish which theories and concepts must be covered in your assignment. Your tutor might provide you with a copy of the specification for the qualification.
It is important to check that you have covered all of the required material to avoid needlessly re-submitting your tasks.
Your assignments will relate to a particular scenario. This might be something relevant to your workplace or it might be a situation relating to a case study selected by your tutor. You should normally ensure that your assignment relates closely to this context. This is because of the nature of the qualification you are studying for: you are expected to demonstrate academic knowledge in a workplace setting.
