BEA674, Data and Business Decision Making
3
Unit Description
Analysts and decision makers need an understanding of statistics for four key reasons: to know how
to properly present and describe information; to know how to draw conclusions about large
populations based only on information obtained from samples; to know how to obtain reliable
forecasts; and to know how to improve processes. These four reasons form the basis of the
structure and content of Data and Business Decision Making. The use of mathematics and
arithmetical calculations are kept to a minimum by using the spreadsheet package Microsoft Excel.
Apart from statistical concepts and techniques, the unit also stresses interpretation and application
of data. The use of statistical and spreadsheet software has made very sophisticated analyses
possible and the unit adds a dimension of understanding to the assumptions and limitations
underlying these analyses.
Prior Knowledge &/or Skills OR Pre-Requisite Unit(s)
Basic knowledge of mathematics at high school level and basic working knowledge of MS Excel
software. If you have any concerns with these skills please contact your lecturer early in the
semester.
Enrolment in the Unit
Because of the intensive delivery of this unit, students should be enrolled in this unit before the start
of the semester. Late enrolments will not be accepted.
When does the unit commence?
The first lecture will be on Tuesday 18 November at 9:00 am. Materials relevant to the unit will be
available on MyLO from 3 November, 2014.

Learning Expectations and Teaching Strategies/Approach
The University is committed to a high standard of professional conduct in all activities, and holds its
commitment and responsibilities to its students as being of paramount importance. Likewise, it
holds expectations about the responsibilities students have as they pursue their studies within the
special environment the University offers. The University’s Code of Conduct for Teaching and
Learning states:
Students are expected to participate actively and positively in the teaching/learning
environment. They must attend classes when and as required, strive to maintain steady
progress within the subject or unit framework, comply with workload expectations, and
submit required work on time.
These are some of the expectations we have of you as a student enrolled in this unit:
The face-to-face contact that you have with teaching staff through lectures and tutorials is
considered a central element of the unit. Our observation is that students who attend lectures and
participate in tutorials are rewarded with improved understanding and performance.

Submission of Assessment Items
Lodging Assessment Items
Assignments must be submitted electronically via email. Where appropriate, unit coordinators may
also request students submit a paper version of their assignments.
The front page of your submission is to clearly identify your; name, student ID number, tutorial
day/time, and your tutor’s name where appropriate. If this information is missing the assignment
will not be accepted and, therefore, will not be marked.
Please remember that you are responsible for lodging your assessment items on or before the due
date and time. We suggest you keep a copy. Even in ‘perfect’ systems, items sometimes go astray.
BEA674, Data and Business Decision Making

Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy
1. (a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
2. This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
3. Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
4. Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
5. Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
6. Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
7. Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
Before starting their assignments, students are advised to familiarise themselves with the following
electronic resources.
The first is the Harvard Referencing System Style Guide, which can be accessed from the UTAS
library: http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808. The Harvard style is the
appropriate referencing style for this unit and the guide provides information on presentation of
assignments, including referencing styles. In your written work you will need to support your ideas
by referring to scholarly literature, works of art and/or inventions. It is important that you
understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The second is the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics’s Writing Assignments: A Guide,
which can be accessed at: http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/studentresources. This guide provides students with useful information about the structure and style of
assignments in the TSBE.
BEA674, Data and Business Decision Making

Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of assessment by
the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal review being
completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form must be submitted with the formal review
(http://www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessm
ent.pdf).
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. Your unit coordinator will
then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which
can be accessed from
www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessment.pdf.
Note that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
www.utas.edu.au/universitycouncil/legislation.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
•
•
•
using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
