Assessment Criteria.

1. Demonstrate the ability to design and conduct a small scale research project on a theme from the module or

community safety priority, which employs appropriate methods and commitment to research ethics.
2) Demonstrate a critical understanding of key legislation, key theoretical perspectives, and a wide range of

appropriate academic literature from the module. Note that submissions that rely too heavily on web-based

sources that are not academic material are unlikely to reach the standard required for the higher range of marks.

3) Present appropriately analysed findings that include a critical discussion and use of appropriate academic material.

4) Draw the Community Audit Report together in a considered conclusion and make appropriate policy recommendations.

5) Deliver a well written and well researched report that uses appropriate referencing conventions in the text and bibliography.
