ASSESSMENT
8.1
Assessment plan
Students have an opportunity to assess themselves and will also be assessed by means of the following
Assignments
Assignments area very important part of your work in this module. They are an official tool through which lecturers are able to give feedback to the students about their performance. Assignments are also linked to exam admission as we shall explain in some detail below. You are therefore advised to send them all in and on time. There are two assignments to submit each semester.
Please note that the submission of the first assignment is compulsory. This assignment contributes fifty percent (50%) toward your year mark. The second assignment also carries fifty percent (50%) of the year mark. It is in your very best interest to submit all assignments because the two assignments together add up to a total of thirty percent (30%) of your final mark. After the marking of the second assignment, a calculation will be made to determine your admission to the examination. Forty percent (40%) is the minimum required for your admission to the end of semester examination. You must keep in mind that admission to the examination is no longer automatic.

PLS2602/101/3/2020 11 The percentage you obtain from the minimum forty percent (40%) upwards shall be credited to your end of semester examination. The examination itself shall comprise of seventy percent (70%) of the final mark. You must obtain fifty percent (50%) in order to pass the examination.
8.2. General Comments on Assignment Writing
It is necessary to keep in mind that the primary requirement in the writing of a philosophy essay is always to present the reasoning underlying a particular philosophy. This means that it is obligatory to focus your attention specifically upon the argumentation for or against a particular position. Reasoning does not occur in a vacuum. It occurs within a context. It is therefore important that you situate your reasoning in a context. Furthermore, you cannot present the reasoning of a philosopher unless you know what the philosopher is actually arguing for or against. For this reason, it is vital that you should provide evidence of knowledge of the study material.
8.2.1 Structure of assignments
It is important to keep in mind that when writing a philosophical essay, it needs to comprise of an introduction, a body and a conclusion. The length of each essay is between 1500 and 2000 words. It is important to note that the length is a guideline. However, this means that your essay should not be less than 1500 words and also not more than 2000 words. In an introduction the following elements are important i) Context to the question
– Use this section to show the relevance of the question or why it might be important to take such a question seriously. ii) Background to the question
– Discuss the environment within which the essay question arose. What was the setting against which the question is being asked iii) Thesis statement (what point are you defending)
– Explain the claim that you will be defending in the paper. If you are giving a summary of an author’s work, then provide the claim that the author intended to argue for in their paper and explain which aspect of the argument that you will be dealing within your paper.

PLS2602/101/3/2020 12 iv) Plan of the essay
– Provide an outline of the essay. This will enable the reader to get a full picture of what she can expect from your paper. Your body needs to comprise of well written, logically constructed paragraphs. You should attempt to keep to one point per paragraph. Make sure each section follows on the next and that each sentence relates to those sentences before and after it. In terms of contents, you should ensure that you answer the question by highlighting relevant themes and following the plan you set out in the introduction. You will be given marks for both content and structure, so please keep this in mind when writing an essay. Finally, in your conclusion, you should not introduce new information. You need to provide an overview of what you have done (which includes an overview of the topic as well as your thesis statement, as well as an answer to the so what question. Why is this topic important Finally, provide some suggestions for future enquiries. You should also have a complete reference list. Please use the Harvard Method of Referencing throughout the paper
– this means you will have in text references as well as a reference list. This will provide the reader with the information needed to identify and locate the exact readings you have used.
Skill in writing essays is both useful and necessary for your examination preparation in the examination you will be required to write your responses to the questions posed also in essay- format. Please take note that you will be penalized should you not adhere to this instruction. Essays comprised of bullet entries are not acceptable.
Summary of the structure of your essay

PLS2602/101/3/2020 13
1. Introduction
a) This is a roadmap. Inform your reader what you want to do in your essay. b) You may tell us how you wish to tackle your topic.
2. Body of the essay
i) It must made up of well-constructed paragraphs, each of which comprises of one single idea. ii) Your body must also have headings and subheadings which guide your discussion. iii) In the body of your essay, there should be in-text references. Every idea borrowed from someone must be properly acknowledged. Example According to
Ramose (2002: 35), where ‘2002’ refers to the year in which the book or article of Ramose which you quote or refer to is published, and ‘35’ refers to the page number where the source is taken. iv) In the body of your essay, you must also indicate where you agree or disagree with the author, and also provide reasons for disagreeing.
3. Conclusion
This is like a report. You briefly inform your reader what you have done. You may also point someway forward on the topic of your discussion.
4. List of References
/ Bibliography
Every essay must bear a bibliography, wherein you give a list of all the sources you consulted in the writing of your essay, including internet sources.

PLS2602/101/3/2020 14
8.2.2 Plagiarism
Some students have not taken care in avoiding plagiarism. It is essential that you ensure that every idea used in your essays
– which are not your own unique thoughts – is referenced. In doing this, you avoid plagiarism. Some students think that if they change the sentence structure or a couple of words, then it is not plagiarism. This is false. Any IDEA (whether it is a direct quote, a modified quote or a summary in your own words) that is not your OWN IDEA, needs to be referenced. Those of you who are not familiar with the Harvard method of referencing need to consult the Discipline of Philosophy’s Tutorial Letter 301 (WYSALLB/301/2020).
1
It is completely unacceptable to have incorrect or missing references. Take note that each reference contains two parts, firstly, an in text reference (typically Surname, year page) and the longer reference entry in your reference list. Please take note that in the examination, you are not required to provide references in your essays.
8.2.3 Responding to the topic posed
It is imperative that your essay be relevant to the topic, and not a generalized summary of a related issue. Without this being done your marks suffer immensely. This is usually a problem in the examination, too. Only by maintaining relevance to the question posed will your essay obtain a good result. Perhaps an important suggestion in the process of writing your examination essays is that you KEEP THE QUESTION ASKED/TOPIC POSED IN MIND throughout the essay-writing process.
1 If you have not received Tutorial Letter 301 with your study material you are able to locate it on myUNISA: once you have accessed PLS2602
’s webpage select “Official Study Material”, after which you will seethe link for “Tutorial
Letter 301 (Both) for WYSALLB
.

PLS2602/101/3/2020 15
With each paragraph, you need to identify the extent to which the claim posed in this section relates to the assignment question posed in the introduction After completing your essay, read through it, edit it, and continue to ask whether your written work corresponds to the topic you have been asked to write on. If you want to improve your marks in the second assignment, and perhaps aim fora distinction, I suggest that you read wider than the prescribed reading. Consulting journal articles (available online via the UNISA library, resources such as the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy and books available in the library, and successfully incorporating these into your essay will improve your marks greatly.
8.3

11 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

11.1 Where is the prescribed book
Answer: There is no prescribed books. However, you do have prescribed readings that are made available as e-resources. Please consult 4.3 above.
11.2 Can you please grant mean extension for assignment no. 1?
Answer: Please note that there will be no extension for this assignment. Assignment No. 1 in both semesters is a compulsory assignment. Not only is this assignment compulsory, but it is also very unique and special. It is a subsidy assignment and as such indicates to us at UNISA and to the National Department of Education in the country that you are an active student. As a result, the Department of Education subsidises the university based on the submission of this assignment. Failure to submit this assignment at all or to submit it timeously will disable the university to get any financial assistance from government for enrolling you in this module. It is for this reason that the university has decided to make this assignment a special indicator of your enrolment in the module.

PLS2602/101/3/2020 22 You are therefore strongly urged to submit this assignment. You are also advised to keep a copy of the completed assignment, so that in the event that this assignment is lost on its way to or from the university, you will have the necessary proof that you did work on it.
11.3 I have not received my assignment back. When will I get it
Answer: Enquiries about assignments (e.g. whether or not the university has received your assignment or the date on which an assignment was returned to you) must be addressed to the Assignment Section of Unisa not to the lecturer. Use your booklet, Study@ Unisa for contact details of the relevant department. You might also find information on myUnisa.
