Task Summary
This Assessment requires you as a group to write a requirements document and lifecycle management report
in response to a case study. The same case study will be used for all three assessments so that you can develop

and should focus on the following two areas:

a) Requirements Documentation

b) Requirements Lifecycle Management

Please refer to the Task Instructions for details on how to complete this task.


The focus of Assessment 1 was on the elicitation of requirements. In this second assessment, you will come
together as a team and progress to the next step in the requirements process: requirements analysis &
documentation, and requirements lifecycle management. Here you will focus on specifying, modelling,
verifying and validating requirements using Business Analysis best practice after which you will focus on
Requirements Lifecycle Management. This assessment aims to assist you in developing workplace relevant
business analysis skills in a predictive planning context.

6. Peer evaluation

Group participation will constitute the final 20% of the mark for Assessment 2.

Participation will be determined as follows:

Each student in the team will evaluate the other members’ contributions using a participation score
matrix (see Group Participation Score Matrix attached)

Individually, each team member will assign a “Group participation score” (from 15) for each member
of the group using the score matrix.

Each student is to assess peers’ contributions according to the Peer Evaluation Grading Scheme.

The participation score matrix submitted by each individual student via the Assessment 2 link at the
same time as the final group digital presentation submission.

The Facilitator will use the average “group participation score” for each member to determine the
weighted ‘Teamwork’ criterion row in the final marking rubric for this assessment.

All peer evaluation submissions are confidential not viewed by the other team members.
