Assignment plan question- access to higher diploma

Hi everyone,

I have been set the following assignment question and I'm a little stuck!

Has anyone had any previous experience of doing this question in particular? I'm not looking for any answers, just a bit of guidance please! I'm especially confused with the time frame, the timetable that they've given is for a month long but, have also specified that you have 10 days from 'today' to submit the assignment for marking?

You are required to produce an assignment plan that will support you when writing an illustrated report for your unit 5 assignment.

You do not need to write the report for this unit you only need to produce an assignment plan.

Your assignment plan needs to be as structured and detailed as possible so that you can use it when completing unit 5.

GUIDANCE:
Using the timetable approach to assignment planning, you should firstly list all of the stages that you are going to need to complete for your unit 5 assignment, from reading the assignment brief to producing a first draft, through to producing your final draft and submitting it for marking.

You must review the unit 5 assignment brief and the relevant assessment criteria before producing your assignment plan. Your assignment plan must then include the structure and format of the unit 5 assignment, including any sections, headings and word count(s).

Where you include the first draft you need to break this down into the different sections you will need to write for an illustrated report following the recommended report format that is in section 1.1 of the study materials for the ‘Academic Writing Skills’ unit. Each section within the report format includes an indicative number of words; you should incorporate this information into your assignment plan.

You then need to allocate each of the stages a suitable time frame for completion. The submission date for your report is 10 days from today and the start date is today. Ensure that you use actual dates within your assignment plan and not ‘week 1’, ‘week 2’ etc.

Once you have done this, you should enter all of your stages and their allocated time frame for completion into a timetable or chart. Refer to the timetable provided in the Assessor Guidance for this assignment.

You can then review your timetable to ensure that your time scales are realistic and that you are going to be able to submit your assignment by the set deadline.

The timetable approach to assignment planning should include:-
An outline of the content, format, structure and layout, including relevant word counts
Deadline for the production of the first draft
Allocated time for proofreading and amending
Deadline for the production of the final draft
Allocated time for final checking
The submission date

If anyone could help that would be amazing!! Thank you in advance

I have just started doing this . Am on unit 4 . I can only say it’s just the beginning so I can’t actually tell you if it’s hard or not. The first 3 units wasn’t hard for me but I think it’s get harder as you move on.
