Assessment title: Student-negotiated project
Assessment type and category:
• Submitted work: Assignment such as essay, report, literature review proposal, portfolio
Description of assessment:
Design your own project, with the only restriction that it must be delivered as a compressed
audio file with a 5 minute component to be awarded a mark, and a short description (<500
words). Project examples are given in week 4, and include ideas such as:
• A podcast on a subject in your discipline
• A recorded interview that can support work being done for an assignment in another
UoS
• A persuasive argument, orchestrated for emotional weight
• A show reel of work in your discipline so far, to be shared online to promote your career
• A portfolio of recordings produced for e.g. an Honours thesis project (where ethics
clearance allows you submit them)
• A radio play
A soundscape
• An original piece of music
• A mash-up of many pieces of music to create a new piece of music
Your recording may be any length (no minimum) but if it is longer than 5 minutes, you must
nominate a 5 minute excerpt that best represents the overall project, to be marked. This is to
avoid overloading markers.
If you own the copyright to all assets in your project, and your project passes assessment, it
may be submitted under a Copyright Commons license on a public website created to celebrate
student work in this OLE.
You should also submit a short description, like a program note, that describes in <500 words
what the project is and how you made it. A template is provided on the LMS – download it
and fill it in.
A marking rubric will be provided. Please refer to the marking rubric.

other assignments, you must not include your name or any other identifying information on your
