Student assessment


This section provides a suggestion for a post-class assignment for the purpose of assessing student understanding of the Module. Suggestions for pre-class or in-class assignments are provided in the Exercises section.

To assess the students' understanding of the Module, the following post-class assignment is proposed:

What do you think of your own media habits before the class in light of what you learned in the class? What impact do you think you will have upon others and upon the environment applying what you have learned? If you intend to become a media professional, where will you draw the line regarding what practices you will not undertake no matter how much money you might be paid? Where will you draw the line regarding what is acceptable professional behaviour in borderline ethical situations? If you intend to be a consumer of media, how will you make your assessments of media accuracy? Support these decisions with reasoned arguments, with the use of a Potter Box analysis and the Society of Professional Journalists: Code of Ethics.
