Brief
Following the introduction of the topics and assessments by the lecturer during weeks 7-8, you are required
to address the points listed in Section C of this assessment brief for this individual essay.
The essay will be evaluated for the quality of work rather than the mere number of words. However, it
is expected that the word count for the report will not be less than 2000 words (excluding references).

copies is required by RMIT, failure to fulfill this requirement would result in deducting 10% of the final grade
for this assessment.
For the electronic copy to be identifiable on Canvas, the file should be named according to the following
format:
