A 1,500 word essay to be chosen from a list of options. The options for the formative assignments all ask students to offer a reflection on a particular method, or aspects of a method. A critical analysis of this kind will also be expected in the summative research project. Hence, the formative assignment prepares students for the summative work by having them think critically about methods. Students will be provided with individual written feedback on their essay which will support them in developing their critical analysis for the summative assignment.
