RPP W6 CWpart1 – Reflection / Thoughts

I’m not looking forward to next term… It was really hard to make my RPP coursework easy – and impossible to get usable answers to questions about it. I’m quite confident that I won’t fail but I’m also sure that I will not get graded any higher than a pass.

My main point of confusion was in describing methods for research (let alone designing them). From the materials, I expect the entire work to involve only literature reviews and base analysis of the severely-limited data found in them.

That’s not really ‘methods’… yet, how could I reasonably plan for more?

The requested work described is completely different to the tutor’s LASSO document, which is the example-supported proposal of a data analysis method. The product was already developed. The ‘research aim’ was to argue the benefits of the developed system’s usage.

I cannot do that, with something that does not yet exist.

We have got anything developed to argue for to my knowledge, we aren’t developing anything, only researching a developments viability – seemingly to result in a supported argument for a development. Due to this weird dynamic, I can see no way to make this coursework’s format similar to the one found in that LASSO document.

Nevertheless, in faithful defeat, I submit the work…

UPDATE: My submission got referred, with comments like “What does this mean?”… 

RPP T2 – LASSO Paper Review

A review of the LASSO research document by Don Casey and Phillip Burrell, who is currently my especially pleasant teacher. This text intends to answer the following questions:

Who is the author/s? Why was the document produced? In what context was the document produced? What are its underlying assumptions? How well supported and convincing is its arguments?” (Task specification, 2017) Continue reading “RPP T2 – LASSO Paper Review”
