Page | 1 Preview Task: In this individual assignment, each student is required to prepare a report regarding carbon emissions from homes, and investigate the ways in which human activities affect the environment, in particular, global warming. The report, titled “Carbon and energy management” should focus on the impacts of the student’s household activities on the environment. Evaluate the carbon footprint of your home, identify suitable mitigation strategies in energy management by providing carbon reduction solutions with respect to the economics, appraise the issues associated with the implementation of regulation and policy related to climate change, and evaluate and analyse environmental/energy auditing techniques. The assignment should include critical analysis of professional literature from various sources. The assignment should be limited to 3000 words. The report should include the following points: 1) Introduction: Should include a short background of carbon and energy management, and cover details related to household activities. 2) Critical analysis and calculation of the housing carbon footprint, considering the different scopes; scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3. 3) Explain and identify suitable mitigation strategies in energy and carbon management with respect to the economics, and provide carbon reduction solutions. 4) Appraise the issues associated with the implementation of regulations and policies related to climate change. 5) Evaluate and analyse environmental/energy auditing techniques 6) Conclusion Page | 2 Guidelines: 1. You advised to refer some sample magazines/books in the college library for an idea on the design and format of magazine articles. 2. You must refer to reliable academic literature sources to support your thoughts, ideas, recommendations etc. on the article. 3. Line spacing 1.5 with normal margins on all four sides of word document. 4. The entire course (text, captions, pictures, photos, statistics and table) should printed in black and white, while no additional marks will allotted if submitted in colour. 5.

It is extremely important that students correctly paraphrase all sources, pictures, tables, statistics and direct quotations. Also, mention the word count at the end of the report. Marking Criteria The course work will be assessed and graded on the overall report submitted and weightage is indicative to knowledge and understanding, application of knowledge and understanding including the theoretical analysis and synthesis, critical analysis of the document, evaluation and conclusion, citation/referencing/supporting evidence/originality and sources and presentation of the overall piece of work. LEVEL FIVE FIRST Written work is directly relevant to the title. Knowledge and understanding is impressive and reflects extensive reading. Citation and (80-100%) referencing are impeccable. Theory and evidence are invariably related. Argument is always relevant and well sustained. The student demonstrates a willingness to challenge received wisdom and to sustain a dialogue in these terms. Presentation is highly sophisticated and in an appropriate format. FIRST Written work is directly relevant to the title. Knowledge and understanding is impressive and reflects wide reading. Citation and Page | 3 LEVEL FIVE (70-79%) referencing are excellent. Theory and evidence are clearly related. Argument is relevant and well sustained. The student demonstrates a willingness to challenge received wisdom and to sustain a dialogue in these terms. Presentation is sophisticated and in an appropriate format UPPER SECOND Written work is directly relevant to the title. The knowledge base is judged sound and relevant. The student is judged to be developing an (60-69%) ability to relate theory and evidence, concepts and ideas. Content is always relevant and well presented, and generally well focused, but can lack breadth or depth. Material is well presented and in an appropriate format. Citation and referencing are very good. LOWER SECOND Written work is predominantly directly relevant to the title. Knowledge base is sound but unimpressive. Occasional analysis but generally cannot (50-59%) rise above well-articulated assertion. Alternatively, some analysis but can lack clarity of focus. Occasional grammatical lapses. Material is well presented and in an acceptable format, although a few deficiencies are apparent. Citation and referencing are generally sound but may contain some errors. THIRD Written work is relevant but largely descriptive. Student appears not to grasp the difference between assertion and analysis, or may see nothing (40-49%) wrong on offering unjustified, perhaps polemical assertions. Written work may contain some analysis but is poorly expressed. Syntax and grammar sometimes unsound. Competent presentation and an acceptable format, although deficiencies are clearly evident. Citation and referencing are present but may contain quite a few errors. COMPENSATABLE At least 40% of material presented is relevant but there may be limited FAIL reference to the question. A generally poor but compensatable answer with extensive errors and omissions, or a substantial answer on the (35-39%) general topic in which the specific, central question is misinterpreted or avoided, or a very good essay in note form. Presentation is poor and sometimes inarticulate. Limited evidence of appropriate reading but citation and referencing must be present, there may be a substantial number of errors. UNCOMPENSATABLE At least 40% of material presented is relevant but there may be limited FAIL reference to the question. A generally weak answer with extensive errors and omissions, or a quite substantial answer on the general topic in which (30-34%) the specific, central question is misinterpreted or avoided. Presentation is poor and often inarticulate. Little evidence of appropriate reading but citation and referencing must be present, there may be a substantial number of errors. FAIL Less than 40% of material presented is relevant. A very weak answer with extensive errors and omissions, or an insubstantial answer on the (20-29%) general topic in which the specific, central question is seriously misinterpreted or avoided, or a good essay in note form. There is only partial understanding demonstrated. Presentation is poor, often inarticulate and sometimes incomprehensible. Very limited evidence of background reading; citation and referencing may be absent. FAIL An exceptionally poor answer with extensive errors and omissions and limited evidence of relevant knowledge, or a weak essay in note form, or (10-19%) an answer that ignores the question to an extent that hardly any of the Page | 4 FAIL (0-9%) LEVEL FIVE content can be construed as being relevant to the general topic of the question. Presentation is very poor, often inarticulate and incomprehensible. No evidence of background reading. Answer not attempted, or limited to only a few paragraphs, or a very weak answer in note form, or of little or no relevance to the general topic of the question. Zero is reserved for failure to attempt an answer, or no, or late submission. Page | 5
