There is evidence of some good engagement with some of the appropriate literature. Learning outcomes have been largely met and to an appropriate degree. Referencing conventions are observed.40 to 49%(Fail/Redo)The assignment evaluated is of a basic standard. The arguments presented have some logical structure and are supported by academic literature in most cases. The academic literature used is outside of the suggestions made in the module guide but remains limited. Little critical evaluation is evident, and the work tends more widely towards a descriptive style. Learning outcomes have been addressed in a basic but satisfactory way. Referencing conventions are mostly observed.Fail Grades30 to 39%(Module retake)The assignment evaluated is of a limited standard. Limited use of academic literature and as such knowledge and argument are very weak. A simple descriptive style with no evidence of critical evaluation throughout. Over-reliance on simplistic, limited sources. Referencing conventions may not be observed. Some learning outcomes met but weakly and simplistically. The work is needed to be developed in greater depth and detail to move to a passable standard at this level of study29% and Below(Module retake)The assignment evaluated is of an unacceptable standard. There is little or no evidence of knowledge and understanding that is required at this level. Referencing is inadequate or non-existent. The learning outcomes have not been addressed fully, and the work requires significant modification to bring it to a passable standard.INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENTModule DescriptionThe objective of this module is to make students understand human resource management and equip them with knowledge, skill and competencies to manage people along with material, information, capital and knowledge asset in the organisation, to equip the students in formulating their own managerial and leadership, style, their assumptions and belief about ‘people’ and their behaviours in an organisation.
