The answer is in the date given in the module. At that time we were neither that careful nor had the experience.

Our own views and practices have developed. Chris Little in particular has been very careful to ensure that our modules are up to scratch. Modules I successfully submitted in 2005 and 6 would be rejected nowadays. 

In essence, if the module is of the kind as this one - ancient and clearly with problems, chances are that the module needs to be recreated from scratch anyway. Find a decent source and produce a replacement. This time with the all necessary info etc.
