You should address all the elements of the assignment task listed below. Please note that tutors will use the assessment criteria set out below in assessing your work.

Assignment Tasks 

The media and the government have rightly been concerned with simultaneous dramatic spread of prejudice and xenophobia in the context of COVID-19 Pandemic. You are required to write a newspaper article explaining the possible causes of this social phenomena. You answer should draw from relevant theories and empirical research.

The role social media often play in the way terrorist groups use social media to spread their terrorist ideology, or even recruiting members is often discussed.

Please produce an evidence-based press release critically evaluating alternative explanations of group dynamics. Your answer should highlight the impact of social media on groups and draw from empirical and theoretical literature.

Assignment Guidance

Write the assignment as two separate pieces, each of 2000 words, following a similar structure to the following:

  • Title
  • Introduction
  • Mainbody

Do not use headings in the essays.

Formative Feedback

You have the opportunity to submit a draft/plan of the assessment (30% of the word count) to receive formative feedback.

The feedback is designed to help you develop areas of your work and it helps you develop your skills as an independent learner.

Your draft/plan must be submitted to your module leader/lecturer on the online portal at least two weeks prior to the final assessment submission date. This is to allow time for you to reflect on the feedback and draft your final submission.

During periods such as Christmas this deadline may change to ensure that you receive your feedback in time. Your module leader will inform you of this at the beginning of the module.

Formative feedback will be provided within 5 working days after submission, it will not be given to work submitted after the formative submission deadline. Please check the exact deadline/time with your module leader.

Please note that formative feedback can only be given on ONE draft. It is recommended that you seek further feedback/comment on your first draft if needed by scheduling a 1-2-1 meeting with your module leader/lecturer.


 You MUST underpin your analysis and evaluation of the key issues with appropriate and wide ranging academic research and ensure this is     referenced using the either APA or AU Harvard format as relevant to your programme of study.

 The My Study Skills Area on iLearn contains useful resources relating to referencing.

Additional notes:

Students are required to indicate the exact word count on the title page of the assessment.

The word count excludes the title page, tables, figures, diagrams, footnotes, reference list and appendices. Where assessment questions have been reprinted from the assessment brief these will also be excluded from the word count. ALL other printed words ARE included in the word count.
