The study title "Assessed student writing at the postgraduate level: Education students’ genre knowledge in assignment writing" utilises the database of an academic writing corpus which comprises exemplary MEd and MSc assignment papers gathered in the Faculty of Education of the University of Hong Kong. In addition, text-based interviews are conducted with some of the MEd and MSc students which complement with the corpus information.
I have uploaded the interview protocol and the transcripts of the text-based interviews. However, the copyright issue of the corpus data should be cautioned. This thesis project is part of a larger UGC-funded project titled "Linking the academic and professional worlds: Written assignments and feedback in a Master-level postgraduate professional development programme" (HREC Reference Number: EA1501049) whose PI is my thesis supervisor Dr. Yongyan Li in the Faculty of Education of Education, University of Hong Kong. In the larger project, Dr Li has started to build the Hong Kong Corpus of Masters Writing, or HKCMW, which comprises of Master’s assignment papers which have been awarded A+, A, or A-. If the corpus data are to be shared, informed consent should be obtained from Dr Li. According to Dr. Li, the corpus data will not be shared publicly at this stage. Therefore, the corpus is not uploaded.
