Write a 1500 word essay discussing the contribution that anthropometry makes to our
understanding of ergonomic interventions in the workplace?
It is important that you do not simply describe anthropometry or ergonomic interventions.
You will need to read and evaluate the current scientific literature and guidance on this
subject to underpin your discussion.
General Instruction
You should research a range of reference materials including recent published research
relating to the topic you are discussing. Journal articles on research can be found through
the portal in the e-library using science direct, for guidance on accessing journals and
eBooks online please refer to the accessing electronic resources guide on Moodle.
The work is to be word-processed and appropriately referenced using the Harvard
system of referencing. It should be presented in the form of an essay and the length
must be within 10% of the 1500 word limit, excluding appendices, bibliography, etc. A
word count must be included.
All assignments must be submitted electronically using the Turnitin plagiarism service
through Moodle (even where a hard copy is required by your local centre). In the correct
Moodle course, click on the Assignment folder; Assignment Submission; identify and click
the correct assignment link and then follow the instructions.
There are a number of centres offering this programme so you must ensure you
submit in the correct folder or your assignment may not be marked.
You may also be required to submit a hard copy to your local centre. Your local centre will
tell you whether or not a hard copy is required to be submitted. Assignments will not be
marked unless they are submitted electronically.
This coursework accounts for 50% of the course marks. The pass mark is 40%. The final
grade for the course is an average of the grades achieved for assignment 1 and 2. It is
not necessary therefore to pass both assignments to pass the course overall. It will be
assessed on the basis of:
Content 45%

This assignment will normally be submitted 6 weeks after the study school but check
online in Moodle or with your Centre for exact dates.
Work submitted late will not be marked unless a formal extension of time has
been granted. Please contact your course tutor if you cannot make the
submission date.
Plagiarism and Copying
It is not acceptable to copy other student’s coursework or material directly from your
sources of information. This is plagiarism. If you copy material it will be highlighted by
the Turnitin system that is used for on-line submissions. The copied content will not be
marked and you may be referred to the Plagiarism Panel and will be awarded a zero
mark. Your final mark transcript will also show that you have been penalised for
submitting plagiarised material.
We will ignore small matches associated with common phrases and terms and will
ignore matches highlighted in your reference list when considering whether or not your
work is plagiarised.
As a general rule you should aim to get your similarity index into the “green” zone on
Turnitin. If you are in the “amber” zone you will need to look very carefully at your work
to see what you can put into your own words to reduce your score. High amber scores
may be referred to the plagiarism panel and will certainly mean that a significant part of
your work will not be considered in the marking. If you are in the “red” zone you will be
referred to the plagiarism panel.
We strongly advise you to submit a final draft through Turnitin well before the cut-off date
to check your similarity index. Please remember that you are only allowed to submit one
draft version of your coursework every day so leave yourself plenty of time to revise and
resubmit your final version of the coursework.
