Examination

Tillvägagångssätt

Examinationen består av två olika delar som examineras samtidigt eller var för sig.

Flervalsfrågor

För det första kommer du att få en upsättning av 20 st flervalsfrågor baserat på innehållet i de fyra modulerna. Frågorna har ett rätt svar utifrån fyra olika alternativ. Här behöver du få 15 rätt för att bli godkänt. Om du inte får det vid första tillfället kan du ta testet igen en vecka efteråt.

Inlämningsuppgift

Du behöver också genomföra en inlämningsuppgift som består av två moment med två uppgifter i vardera moment.

  1. Analys av beslutsfattande
    För det första ska du själv väljer ett bolag som du analyserar utifrån vilken typ av påverkan deras kommunikation skulle behöva ha på sin målgrupp för att lyckas med ett utsatt mål. Du anger vilket bolag, vilket mål de har och redogör för hur de ska uppnå det genom att koppla an till de olika begreppen i modul 1.

    För det andra kommer vi att ge dig ett bolag och ett specifikt mål som du ska analysera utifrån vilken typ av påverkan deras kommunikation skulle bahöva ha för att lyckas med det uppsatta målet. Här ska du förklara utifrån de begrepp som presenteras i modul 1 vad kommunikationen skulle behöva uppnå.
  2. Analys av marknadskommunikation

    För det andra kommer vi att ge dig ett exempel av marknadskommunikation (en annons, ett mail eller likande) där vi vill att du analyserar möjlig effekt samt kommer med tre konkreta förbättringsförslag.

Hela inlämningsuppgiften bedömer vi tar ca 2 timmar och vardera analys ca 0,5 A4 i skrift, så totalt ca 2 A4 text.

Efter inlämning får du besked om du är godkänd. Om ej godkänd kommer krav på komplettering och då är du godkänd när den färdigställts. När båda delarna är klara får du ditt diplom.
