Project Planning and Reflection Assignment Assessment Rubric


Component Fail (0-49) Pass (50-64) Part A: Planning 4% (this component can be completed/complied as a group) Scope / WBS No WBS or reference to Reference made to assessment assessment requirements requirements but no WBS Credit (65-74) Assessment requirements identified. Basic WBS provided (list or graphical) Milestones and individual task completion dates identified Requirements are documented but have could have little impact on the quality of project Basic description of team organisation Basic planning for communications on the project Risks identified but generic control measures stated 2 meetings well documented with general progress / actions identified Evidence that some aspects of the project plan implemented, with varying effectiveness Appropriate discussion of some aspects of the project plan. Relevance of lessons identified are not articulated. Reflection could be more concise, or have better structure. Minimal spelling/grammar issues. Distinction (75-84) Assessment requirements clearly outlined and linked to a WBS High Distinction (85-100) Clear WBS (list or graphical) provided that is consistent with other aspects of project planning and the assessment requirements Clear Gantt chart developed*

Schedule Quality** Human Resources** Communication** Risk**

No schedule identified No indication of how quality will be managed Project team organisation not identified No communication plan identified No risks indentified

Key milestones identified but individual tasks not identified Motherhood statement re management of quality Team members identified by roles unclear Motherhood statement on communication during project Basic risks and control measures identified

Gantt chart developed and generally representative Quality of project well Verification responsibilities clear; considered and measures review tasks and project planned progress reviews identified. Organisation chart clearly demonstrates configuration/responsibilities of team Clear description of communication protocol, frequency, reporting Limited number of well defined risks and control measures. 2 meetings well documented with specific progress / actions identified Evidence that most aspects of the project plan were effectively implemented Good discussion of a number of aspects of project plan. Lessons for future projects implicit. Good understanding of project management processes evident. Well written reflection with some minor improvements required. Both project management and technical risks identified with specific control measures. 3 meetings well documented with specific progress / actions identified Evidence that all identified tasks, review activities and control measures were effectively implemented In depth analysis of what aspects of the project plan were successful. Lessons explicitly identified for future projects. In depth understanding of project management processes evident. Clear, concise and coherent reflection with no errors.

Part B: Project Control 2% (this component can be completed/complied as a group) Minutes No meeting minutes 1 or 2 meetings of a general nature evident documented Implementation of Plan No evidence that project plan was implemented Minimal evidence that project plan was implemented

Part C: Reflection 4% (this component is to be completed individually) Critical thought Reflection is of a general Limited reflection of project plan. nature and not specific to Understanding of project the project. management processes is not articulated. Effectiveness of communication Reflection is difficult to read Significant editing required improving spelling, grammar and structure of the reflection.

* the Gantt chart should be quite simple, as the design projects only have a short timeframe. ** These aspects could all be addressed in a single project planning meeting
