Assessment Task Description

The purpose of this assessment is to prepare you for your academic studies in researching, writing, and conveying the ideas of others. This assessment focuses on the importance of maintaining your Academic Integrity throughout your studies and developing the key skills you need to achieve this.

You are required to complete the following assessment tasks (Parts 1  5):

Part 1: Complete and sign the cover sheet available on Moodle. This will start your document with all other parts of the assessment to follow in the same document

Part 2: Interpret the Teamwork Report (attached below) using the embedded similarity report and the associated images located on Moodle, and if there are any instances of plagiarism, you must complete the Academic Integrity Report (attached below).

Part 3: Completely rewrite the Teamwork Report by writing your own self-reflective report on Teamwork. You will need to identify research theories on teamwork and use these to support your own ideas and experiences. The objective is to explain the requirements, identify the challenges, relate the challenges you faced to the theory, and then explain how you will use what went well and use your understanding of the theory of teamwork to modify any future teamwork you may engage in.

Finally, ensure that all sources of information are identified with correct in-text citations (this applies to direct quotations and paraphrasing) and that all sources are listed appropriately at the end in a reference list in accordance with the following rules:

Part 4: Check that the content body of your work has zero percent plagiarism (or similarity). If there is any similarity detected, continue working on it until you meet this requirement. Ensure to manage your time wisely, as this may take some time.

Part 5: Paste the image of the draft Teamwork report with0% similarity and give it the Heading: A1 

Part 6: If you have made an error, you will be able to amend your submission before the deadline.

Note: Penalties apply for late submissions, in addition to the following if more than zero plagiarism is found: 1% off final grade – Level 1: Poor referencing (plagiarism is less than 10%)

3% off final grade – Level 2: There is a reference list, plagiarism is between 10% and 25%

5% off final grade – Level 3: There is a reference list, a single intentional incident of 25% or more.

A Self-Reflective Report on Effective Teamwork Amos Clarkson MIT100001

Working Effectively in Teams


Teamwork is a requirement of many endeavours. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships. The assessment that was just completed was an example of teamwork being a group presentation. We were required to form groups of 4 people and present on a topic. We were asked to meet weekly and discuss ideas and to come up with a shared presentation on our selected topic.


At first, we had difficulty in being able to share ideas because we didn’t want to have other people make fun of us. We all had our own ideas of what the others in the group would be good at or not and we did not really come together as a team. However, we found that when we shared our ideas, we ended up coming up with some really good concepts. This was especially true because we had a good mix of different backgrounds and ages. Our different perspectives led to some really good synergy.

Another challenge we faced was getting together as a group to discuss our preparations. Unfortunately, we had an issue where our group members were in different time zones. Our team members were in Nepal, China, Australia and Brazil. We were able to use some VoIP technology like Viber to connect with one another and we all were able to learn to be flexible which helped. Overall, we were able to work effectively as a team which resulted us in getting a very good score for our group presentation


“Trust enables team members to overcome uncertainty and accept vulnerability toward teammates”. Next time, I think it would be beneficial to build trust by doing some team-building activities. Another area which I will try to apply is having a range of people in my group. Haas and Mortensen (2016) comment that diversity in knowledge, views and perspectives, as well as in age, gender, and race, can help teams be more creative and avoid groupthink. The ways a group works as a whole decides the level of success. The greatest individuals working on their own instead of as the

team they should be, their results won’t be worth a dime. Finally, to ensure effective teamwork it is important to eliminate assumptions. Assumptions often cause misunderstandings, which can escalate into troublesome situations. I understand that is important to talk about the present and the future, but not assume that what happened before is what will always happen. In the future, I will learn to build trust in the team, be flexible with meeting times and collaborate with my team members in the future


A Self-Reflection Report on Effective Teamwork

Working Effectively in Teams


Babe Ruth said, “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” (Wilson, 2020) We are glad that we got an opportunity to work as a team while we were working on a group presentation. We had a group of 5 people, and we had to select one topic that was commonly agreed by all the group members. The assessment helped us learn about the essence of Teamwork and how it helps us build our understanding regarding the same.


There is little doubt that Teamwork has become the absolute requirement of today's globalised world, and no single person can achieve larger goals single-handedly. In that regard, Teamwork is often learned to be an easy thing. However, it can be hugely complex and bring in several challenges. (Driskell, Salas & Driskell, 2018) The first challenge was a low engagement in initial days when the team members did not connect much. To tackle this challenge, one of the group members decided to meet virtually, and we discussed the reasons why we are not able to get along. Each team member shared their views, and we arrived on a consensus that we will have to meet often, virtually, to engage better and understand each other.

The second challenge was the disagreement on the selected topic. That was indeed tough to deal. While 3 team members agreed on one topic and remaining two, including me, pitched for another topic. However, as we knew, we do not have enough time to waste on the topic agreement, we decided to go with the majority and realised soon that their choice of topic was better than ours. Eventually, we were able to cope up with the challenges that could have affected our Teamwork, and we presented the group presentation and received appreciation.


Although today's working styles, conditions, ideas are far more dynamic and diverse, and often do face hurdles, if the fundamentals of teamwork are adhered to, the success of Teamwork is inevitable. (Hass & Mortensen, 2016) Some of the fundamentals of Teamwork include trust, transparency, engagement, agreement to diverse ideas, acceptance of views and perspectives. Team members need to understand and respect each other. While we were working together, we faced some issues which were common in nature. However, it became challenging at one point in time. Those were the times where all the team members respected each other and paved the way for a better output. So, we would conclude by saying that Teamwork is based on certain fundamentals and if we wish to gain positive results, we must accept the core elements of Teamwork and adhere to them.
