Methods of Assessment

Research Project 100% of final score


Research Project Proposal

Before commencing work on your research project, it is imperative that you obtain approval for your proposal. To do this, please complete the provided research project proposal form and submit it via email to by no later than Friday 12 July at noon. Approval of your proposal is a mandatory step to ensure that your research meets the necessary academic standards and aligns with institutional guidelines. Failure to secure this approval may result in delays or disqualification of your project, so we strongly encourage you to prioritise this process.

Research Project

You have to answer to the research project which will be made available in the Research Project Submission form below. Project should be submitted by not later than Thursday 12 September 2024. The project has to be submitted together with the Research Project Submission Form through 21 Academy's plagiarism software Turnitin. Upload the project in pdf format. Do not scan the project but convert/save it directly to pdf. We ask you to keep the similarity percentage very low and definitely below 20%. You should  review and rephrase any submissions which show more than 20% similarity. Any assignments submitted above 20% similarity will be manually investigated for plagiarism and may be failed.

Research Project Submission Form

We are also making the 21 Academy's Business and Financial Plan Rubric available for your guidance. This is a performance-based assessment tool. Tutors will use the rubric to assist them to allocate scoring while it allows students to understand what is required in the assignment and how it will be graded. For more information about how the project will be assessed please read 21 Academy's Business and Financial Plan Rubric Explained.
