Overview of Assessment
Students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.
Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including assignments, journals, presentation and written or test. Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
This course is delivered and assessed in conjunction with RMIT Course Code: MKTG5826C Evaluate Campaign Effectiveness
MKTG 5825C Evaluate Campaign Effectiveness (BSBADV605B)
These courses are taught in consultation with each other and are timetabled accordingly.
Element 2: Implement campaign evaluation strategy
Students will choose a prominent recent advertising campaign (verified by lecturer) and write a comprehensive evaluation report on the campaign’s effectiveness from the context of:
• Recognisable consumer behaviour benchmarks.
• Recognisable creative appeal benchmarks.
The report will be completed as an individual assignment of approximately 3,000 words and be presented professionally to boardroom presentation level.
Suggested headings for the report could (not must) be adopted along the following format:
• Themed front cover
• Contents page
• Executive Summary
• Descriptive outline of chosen campaign
• Selection of campaign advertising examples
• Assumed campaign objectives
• Consumer Behaviour Benchmarks
- Sensory stimuli ….sight, smell, touch, taste or sound.
- Cognitive organization….visualizing or understanding what the product/service promises
- Reactionary response mechanisms
- Selective perception techniques
- Subliminal persuasion techniques
Creative Appeal benchmarks
• Evaluation Summary
Element 1: Develop a campaign implementation strategy.
Element 3: Utilise advertising effectiveness data
Using The Grey Advertising WIL project (brief delivered by Grey Advertising in week 5), students in agency groups will do a proposed evaluation plan that will be included in their Grey project response.
The plan will put into place a series of signposts to measure the effectiveness of things such as the cumulative positive/negative affect on the brand; monitoring sales enquiries; sales; surveying customers; internet advertisement tracking, etc.
Each individual student will have input into the group plan and be verified by a Peer Assessment Declaration where colleague students will countersign for their group members for a satisfactory level of involvement in the group plan.
Element 1: Develop an implementation strategy
Element 2: Negotiate media contracts
Element 3: Monitor the advertising campaign
Using the Grey Advertising WIL project, students in agency groups will complete a series of activities in the hypothetical execution of the project.
The elements included in this suite of execution activities include:
• Key No. register
• Media brief
• Media authorizations
• Conference reports
• Work in progress meetings agendas and minutes
• Production plan
• Client invoices and Job Bags/Cover Sheets
Each element will be produced as a separate piece and collated into a single overall assignment document.
Once again a Peer Assessment Declaration will be included to verify individual student involvement in the various aspects of the assignment.
More detailed assessment sheets for each assessment task will be disseminated throughout course delivery.
Submission Requirements: All assessment tasks need to be submitted via Blackboard.
