The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate: Knowledge and application of theoretical concepts in capturing marketing insights through the research process and their implication for stakeholders and learn to work in a team and design a marketing research project
The summative assessment for this module consists of:
- Group assignment report, 40% (addresses learning outcomes 1 and 2)
- Online individual exam, 60% (addresses learning outcomes 3 and 4)
Formative assessment and feedback:
This module adopts an enquiry-based approach to assessment and feedback where resources are provided to students to enable them to identify their own strengths and weaknesses prior to an assessment, and in turn decide their own learning strategies. These resources include: Seminars will be designed to address the preparation process, team management, and other key issues associated with the group project and exam preparation; A detailed marking scheme will be supplied to students to explain the assessment criteria used and the weighting of each criterion; Criteria have been developed in line with the learning outcomes; Summative feedback, explaining what students did well and less well, will be published on SurreyLearn once the marking process is complete; The generic feedback, including a statistical breakdown, will also be posted on SurreyLearn so that students can gauge their own performance Marks will be returned to students within three weeks of submission (excluding bank holidays and university closure days), via SurreyLearn. Exam marks may be released later pending ratification at the Board of Examiners.

Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.

Employability The module is designed to equip students with market research knowledge and competencies which can be transferable to professional settings. Students will learn real-life applications of capturing market insights and their implications for companies, which would enhance their future employability.
Global and Cultural Capabilities: Students will have an opportunity to interact with others while working on the group project and will therefore benefit from the cultural diversities of the student body.
Digital Capabilities: Students will develop their digital capabilities using software such as SurreyLearn, Zoom and MS Office Applications, some of which they can utilise in the workplace.
Resourcefulness and Resilience: Students will be offered both in-class and written feedback (for assessed components). This feedback is designed to develop and enhance their analytical, communication, team-work and problem-solving skills, which would make them more adaptable in the workplace.
