1 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment aspects regarding approval of - Assignment -Plan of Approach -Paper (graduation thesis)

2 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the assignment Does the assignor (company, organization, authority, etc) provide services and / or products that are related to the field of study? Does the assignment demand integrative thinking and acting (2 domains)? Is the assignment related to a topical and realistic requirement / need? Is the assignment sufficiently complex – the assignment should lead to improvement and/or innovation; new knowledge.

3 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the assignment Is the asssignment related to the student’s personal development plan? Can the asssignment be rounded off within the set frame of time? Is the assignment related to a strategic component that the assignor will benefit from? DDs covered??

4 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the Plan of Approach

5 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the Plan of Approach Lay-out: title (+ subtitle if nec.) ; Names, tel numbers, etc of everybody involved Problem description and problem definition Main question and sub-questions Research borders Strategic component

6 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the Plan of Approach Research methods – account for methods that will be used to gather and assess data -Quantative method (in desk and field research) -Qualitative method (in desk and field research) -Research must be related to cause and solution, and must be practical and empirical.

7 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval and approval of the Plan of Approach Activities and products risks that may jeopardize the research and its outcome

8 GRADUATION THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Assessment and approval of the Graduation Thesis

9 ASPECTS OF ASSESSMENT -Lay out and format management review, explanation of abbr., no whites or blanks, relevant pictures and graphs, etc Language Preferred language is English (use Dutch only if requested by principal). No spelling mistakes! Keep it simple! Dunglish! Paper should be a “reader’s report”, not a “writers report”. -30 – 40 pages Conciseness (refer to theories and publications -- reference page ) or: “According to …….” “This research has proven that ….” “He thinks/says/claims ….” “It has been indicated that …” THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Do not use “I” or “We” or “You” in a report. Do not insert personal “emotions”, such as “This was a very difficult task”, or “We had to work very hard”. Do not insert personal “emotions”, such as “This was a very difficult task”, or “We had to work very hard”.

10 Volgens de geïnterviewde directeur van KMR heeft de haven een oud en versleten imago, waardoor jongeren niet meer voor een beroep in haven kiezen. Rotterdam heeft volgens deze directeur wel genoeg jongeren, maar deze jongeren kennen de weg naar de haven nog niet. Andersom hebben de werkgevers de jeugd ook niet gevonden. De betreffende directeur vindt dat de Rotterdamse arbeidsmarkt sprake is van mismatch. De vraag binnen de haven is volgens deze directeur heel erg groot en deze vraag kan nu al niet gevuld worden door de mensen die uit het onderwijs doorstromen. Het is volgens de respondent daarom van belang om binnen het netwerk de activiteiten te stroomlijnen; door coördinatie van activiteiten kunnen bedrijven een beter resultaat halen. Zo hebben volgens de betreffende directeur alle betrokken partijen een eigen rol binnen het netwerk, maar omdat de bedrijven uiteindelijk met het probleem van de mismatch te maken gaan krijgen, zijn zij de belangrijkste actor. De directeur geeft aan dat alle betrokken partijen (3 O’s) Moeten samenwerken om de problematiek omtrent de mismatch op de arbeidsmarkt aan te pakken. REFERENCES (Voorbeeld van verwijzend schrijven)

11 THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING RESEARCH Research was set up as follows: -Problem description -Problem definition -Main question and sub questions -Research borders -Methodology in desk and field research (quantitative / qualitative / regulative)

12 GENERAL DEMANDS THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Research has been related to the following aspects: -Practicality (as opposed to theoretical research) -Causality (what is the cause of the problem; what is the solution) -Empirical approach (conclusions based on experience) -Relevance (usefulness) -Integration (different domains) -Strategy -Actuality -Improvement (knowledge-wise and managerial) -Continuity -- innovation

13 THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING Problem description and definition Research was aimed at solving a problem, and has led from an existing situation to a desired new situation. The outcome is innovative and creative; existing knowledge has been improved (new knowledge). The problem description has led to the problem definition, which has led to a diagnosis of the actual cause(s) of the problem, which has led to the description of the final goal of the research, which has led to the implementation of solutions found, which has been properly evaluated.

14 ASPECTS OF ASSESSMENT ON CONTENTS -Analyses, explanations, descriptions, cause(s), consequence(s), advantages, disadvantages, application(s), solutions, conclusion(s), recommendations (all in a strategic setting) -CRITICAL ATTITUDE! question, disproving, verifications and falsifications of theories, results of other researches, statements and conclusions. Evaluation and critical reflection. - Fraud Illegally acquired data, material, pieces of text, etc. is considered as fraud! This will lead to a rejection of the paper. Final reports will all be checked by anti-fraud software (EPHORUS) THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING

15 “The flexibility and efficiency are the main advantages of the dual fuel technology”. “By using high viscous lubricants the maintenance interval can be reduced considerably”. “Low speed sailing reduces the amount of toxic waste into the environment and increases fuel effectiveness”. Examples of unquestioned statements and conclusions from recent papers. THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING

16 The following should be considered when assessing and marking a paper: 1 – has it been proven that sufficient theoretical knowledge about the topic is present; 2 – has it been proven that empirical knowledge about the topic is present; (by empirical knowledge is understood the knowledge that has been gained from experience). Assessment: = 50% score (=5). Empirical knowledge: “With hindsight, after all that was investigated, we have learned that ……”. Empirical knowledge: “With hindsight, after all that was investigated, we have learned that ……”. THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING

17 A higher score follows when analytical aspects are evident in the report, with critical views and reflections showing that data and findings have not been taken for granted. The more you criticize, question or disprove, with a solid scientific basis, the higher the score. THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING

18 An even higher score will be awarded when creativity and innovation are clearly present in the paper. THESIS ASSESSMENT AND MARKING

19 - No problem description and definition (note!!: a definition is not a question!) - No causality (you must find out what the cause of the problem is in order to find a solution!) - Report has been written for the writer (it should be written for the reader) - Models (e.g. SWOT, GAP, MAROF, STEP, 3Ps, PEST, etc) should be related to the solution to the problem!! - Only one domain - Strategic component missing - No references - No critical attitude and approach; you must verify and falsify! - Irrelevance - Language! (spelling, grammar (Dunglish), idioms, etc.) - Thesis defence: unexpected headwinds. WHEN THINGS GO WRONG!:
