Assignment 1 and 2 Guidelines and

Assignment 1 Instructions





This course has 3 types of assessment activities:


  • Sixteen online quizzes which examine your knowledge and understanding of the business law theories, concepts and rules found in all the chapters in the Yates, et al, text;


  • Two assignments which will test your ability to apply a range of theories, concepts and rules in business law;


  • A final exam which tests your knowledge, understanding and application of business law theories, concepts and rules as presented in the Yates, et al, text.





The two assignments have the same format and each consists of two elements:


  • Your responses to Chapter Questions (as directed below) taken from chapters in the text; and


  • Your responses to questions relating to Cases and Discussion Questions (as directed below) taken from chapters in the text.


Each assignment will require you to submit a formal report of your responses as a Word document appended to an email submitted to the course site no later than the deadline published in the Assignment Schedule.


There is no formal minimum or maximum length for your reports but you should expect that a minimally satisfactory response for each question will be at least 100 words and at least 200 words for each case and discussion question.  You may exceed this minimum but a satisfactory response is not likely to be less than the minimums stated above.


Assignment 1 will test Chapters 1 to 9 in the 9th and 10th edition of the Yates, et al text and consists of 10 questions and 5 case and discussion questions.  Assignment 2 will test Chapters 10 to 16 and consists of 10 questions and 5 case and discussion questions.  Each assignment is worth 20 final marks in the course.  The marks for each assignment will be split equally between each element, ie, responses to questions will be worth 1 mark each and responses to case and discussion questions will be worth 2 marks each.  Responses will be assessed on their comprehensiveness (80%) and professionalism (20% – grammar, spelling and writing style).



Submit a report containing your responses to the following questions and case and discussion questions based on Chapters 1 through 9 in the 9th and 10th edition of the text by the deadline published in the Assignment Schedule.  Your report must be submitted as a Word document through the Assignment 1 drop box on the Moodle course site.  Do not submit PDF’s.
