This assessment covers the following learning outcome:
- be able to evaluate a variety of existing and developing architecture technologies for IoT;
- be able to describe and evaluate different applications of the IoT.
The following Criteria will be used while assessing each component of this assessment item. NB All your work must be cited (CSU APA), otherwise up to 100% of marks can be deducted. All answers must be written in your own words. Copying sections of text from other sources, even if referenced, is plagiarism and is considered Academic Misconduct.

|Evaluate a variety of existing and developing architecture technologies for IoT||In depth use of a good range of relevant literature to address the points. Clearly defines various components of the IoT, with evidence of synthesis of own research and prescribed reading in topics.||Evidence of using relevant literature to address the points. Correctly defines various components of the IoT with evidence of synthesising some external readings and prescribed reading in topics.||Use of some relevant literature to address the points. Provides a definition of various components of the IoT. Mostly cited the prescribed text. Synthesised concepts learned from topic readings.||Limited evidence of using relevant literature to address the points. Provides a definition of various components of the IoT but little evidence of linkages or connections to topic readings.|

Your assessment should be submitted in either MS Word or PDF format (PDF usually preserves the formatting, MS Word may not - submit ONLY one). Do not submit your assignment in any other format and also do not submit multiple copies of the assessment. Use A4 page size with Times New Roman/Arial/Calibri font and use font size 11 or 12. Please include a title, your student ID and name with your submission. Your name should also be included as a footnote, with page numbers in your document. The Assignment should be submitted onTurnitin.
References - You MUST use the CSU APA referencing style for all cited material you have used in your work (use in-text citations). You must use primary sources (ie Wikipedia is not acceptable, something you thought up yourself, because you think you know better, is also unacceptable - unless it has been published and peer reviewed, but then it would still need to be cited). All answers must be written in your own words. Copying sections of text from other sources, even if referenced, is plagiarism and is considered Academic Misconduct.
To complete this assessment item, you should have completed the Cisco Introduction to Packet Tracer course and read chapters 1 to 8 of the textbook.
