1.0 Introduction:

            The assessment focuses on different aspects of academic research and writing, along with the reflection of personal achievement and continuous improvement. Also, it addresses the research items that were foundexciting and reason for this. Key arguments are also found out required in the research items. These three key arguments are considered and discussed in detail. The three key points are discussed after a more indepth analysis of research. After discussing the three arguments,the second part is about selflearning from the module. The assignment reflects what has been learned from the module and why this learning is essential in practical and professional life. Other than this, it will be focusing on why these areas are essential in the future life and area of interest. So, the entire assignment will be focusing on two essential parts, one of which is about the application of academic research and writing with the analysis of journal articles. While the second part will be about selfreflection.

2.0 Part 1

2.1 Research items found interesting

Research item is found interesting because it focuses on the consideration of multiple variables while discussing the relationship in between them. This research is more of a generalised research researching on different companies and inventories. Holistic set has also been defined in the research with the consideration of multiple factors and perspectives. The research journal that I choose has a focus on measuring the relationship between productivity and the performance of the employees—the research conducted in various construction departments to enhance the level of productivity using different performance development measures. (Patyal et al., 2019).Different arguments find out in the research are of great interest, and these arguments help in better understanding of the knowledge. Three resources made the research item even more interesting, which are formation of arguments, forms of analysis and rhetorical moves.

2.2 Why interesting?

Among the given books, the book which has been selected is The Craft of the Research. The point that have learned from the book and which will assist me in learning about academic research and writing, even more, is reasoning and evidence. I was not that much good in claiming and in making evidences. Reading the book highly assists in using different categories of thinking to plan out any argument. I can know about the difference between logic and proof. Both of these points play a vital role in enhancing my academic research and writing skills. I learned out how to select and choose out the right evidence, which will help add value to the research. Using reasoning in a study makes it more reliable, and it requires several cognitive and critical thinking skills. I came to know the importance of the competent evidence and its part in academic research and writing. This section has various subsections which helped me a lot to develop my critical thinking and cognitive skills. (Friginal, 2013).

2.3 How interesting for development?

Multiple points present in the research as well as by the analysis of the book helps me in focusing on specific points that I do not know before. These specific points are highly interesting for development and application of knowledge of academic research and writing. It helps in the development of different cognitive and intellectual skills,primarily when it focuses on how to dig out arguments from individual research. The research helps in making a claim and then arguing it by supporting it into different dimensions. It highly assists me in doing reasoning and in making arguments about the main research topic. Implying rationale, along with the reliable evidence, helps in enhancing my critical thinking and cognitive abilities. (Friginal, 2013).Another point to relatively more importance is the difference between reasoning and reliable evidence. I came to know the importance of both of these terms of making arguments and critical analysis in academic research. Reports of evidence and usage of different reasons to provide my testimony with the support is another section that makes me learn a lot. (Friginal, 2013). All these points made the research interesting for development.

2.4 Three key argument considered necessary in 3 research items.

2.4.1        First key argument

The researcher made an argument that performance and the productivity of aby business are interlinked. With the increase of production, the productivity level of the company also increases. This a macrolevel research and hence the research can be generalised. (Patyal et al., 2019). Another argument made by the research is all about the direct relationship between productivity and performance. This argument is logical and rational. Also, it is highly informative in learning multiple aspects of a business. (Myles, 2014). The research proceeds by applying it on the macro level. It discusses every business aspect related to the research, and it makes the research versatile, informative, and highly logical. (Patyal et al., 2019).

2.4.2        Second key argument

Also, it discusses the factors that help increase the productivity and the performance of the employees. Multiple industries are selected to proceed with the research. The research is not only limited to the single construction industry. (Patyal et al., 2019). Instead, it focuses on many construction industries to increase the rationality and logical based information of the research.

2.4.3        Third key argument

It discusses different management strategies and factors that help increase the productivity. Also, it highlights all of the possible business aspects that assist in increasing the level of production. The involvement of multiple industries enhances the practical information that assists in increasing the production level of organisations related to construction. (Patyal et al., 2019). The research assists in making arguments and about finding out the relating shreds of evidence as in the case of employee performance and productivity. (Patyal et al., 2019)

3.0 Part 2 – Reflective outline

This part focuses on the knowledge and learning that has been gained from the module. The module is useful in polishing the skills of academic research. The entire module enhances the knowledge of applying theoretical research methods. Professor enhances the understanding by teaching academic research from every possible aspect. It helps in the critical analysis of every research method while finding out the solutions to the required problem statements by making claims and relative arguments. (Walliman, 2018).

3.1 What is learnt from the module?

The module puts the focus on academic research and writing an entire module revolves around this concept. It provides detailed knowledge of the theoretical perspective used in research, and it highlights the aspects of doing research using a different set of data. The module has many concepts to teach us, and the professor makes sure that we do apply this on a practical basis as well. The detailed understanding of academic research provides the efficiency to master every perspective of the study.

3.2 Why might that learning be meaningful?

The entire module makes the students learn every aspect of academic research and writing. I learned out many new concepts that make me feel a master in academic research and writing. It is also beneficial in the sense that it requires detailed knowledge pf academic research that applies in every studying department. Also, the module is being informative throughout. It describes a detailed overview of academic research and writing. All the concepts regarding academic research are diverse from many perspectives. The module makes us learn about the research concepts with different aspects, enhancing the knowledge of the course. We also learned the implementation of experience that has been studied in the entire module. I feel very engaged, and I grasp every new information by applying it to various departments. Critically, the whole journey is highly logical and informative. (Potter, 2019).

3.3 How useful to me and my areas of interest?

The module does not provide the information related to only one perspective, but it also allows us to practice indepth knowledge of doing researches. It enhances the practical application of knowledge to apply every learned concept. It develops an evaluation stance to perform different sets of examinations. In the future, I will be utilising the learning of this module practically in the areas where research is required. I will also be working on my shortterm and longterm goals. It will be helping me to achieve future goals proficiently. I will also be working on weaknesses that I faced in this module while achieving the shortterm goals. It will assist me in developing my skills even more. (Potter, 2019). All these perspectives and learning process helps me in dealing with my future area of research of academic research.

4.0 Conclusion:

The research focused on the productivity and performance of the employees that are essential in increasing the inventories of low cost. The research devised different alternative ways that help proceed with the investigation. (Patyal et al., 2019). The study has been conducted in multiple aspects, and it requires proper application of knowledge along with making claims about a central topic. The selected section from the research book develops my concepts of reasoning and evidence, as I came to know about the importance of these points along with the required knowledge. The selected section develops a better understanding to use reliable evidence in the research. Overall, all the analysed studies and books helps in the development of my skills while making y critical thinking skills stronger. (Friginal, 2013).
