The length of the essay should be 3,500 words.
2. Complete a RESEARCH-BASED essay describing and discussing the processes AND challenges involved in identifying, recovering, securing, examining, analyzing and preparing digital evidence from a crime scene. This covers the theoretical part of the unit and should be based on the lecture/workshop material, this guide, the lecture notes and, most importantly your own research endeavors. In my experience, employers are looking for graduates who possess analytical, research and communication (writing) skills above and beyond the components of the degree.
1) Discuss and the importance of crime reconstruction hypotheses and alternative hypotheses
2) Conclusion - most not overlook and underestimate the conclusion – this is where you summarise the facts described in the body of your essay and add your own conclusions based on what you have read. No new material should be added here.
3) Wherever you quote from an author, ‘YOU MUST INCLUDE AN IN-TEXT CITATION’. One citation per paragraph will NOT suffice. Use only APA 5th style of referencing or failure to do so will result in no marks nor being awarded.
