Action Plan Assignment

| February 18, 2020

Introduction

For this Question, you will begin constructing your project, the Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan. Your project will not be just a paper about assessment, but a real-world, on-the-job, practical plan that you are encouraged to propose for implementation either in your current position or in the future.

First, keeping in mind that you will be proposing this plan to decision-makers who will consider whether to implement your plan, you will develop an introduction that concisely summarizes the program, course, department, or experience that you have selected for your project.(attached below) The introduction will also describe how you propose to apply the cycle of assessment to your plan to assess the learning outcomes of students or trainees in a specific learning situation.

Then you will present the first three sections of the actual proposed assessment plan:

  1. The learning goals that students are to achieve. 
  2. The means of measuring their achievement of the goals. 
  3. The standards and/or targets to define successful achievement.

Each of these sections will be followed by an explanation of the reasons—your rationale—for the decisions you made for the sections of the proposed plan. Your explanations must be well supported by the required course readings, because when we develop assessment, we establish our credibility by using and citing authoritative sources.

Instructions

Construct the following components of your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan to assess the learning outcomes of students or trainees in a specific learning situation and the rationale for the decisions you make for each of the components. Use and cite the readings to support your claims in the rationale sections. Provide a list of references from the readings that you use. *Be sure to apply the submission requirements described below.*

First, write a concise summary of the program, course, department, or experience that you have selected, keeping in mind how much information the decision-maker to whom you will present your proposed plan needs. In addition, describe how the cycle of assessment will be applied to the proposed plan.

Under the heading “Learning Goals,” present the learning goals that the students or trainees are to achieve. Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Learning Goals,” present a rationale for your goals, using and citing the readings.

Under the next heading, “Assessment Instruments,” present the types of assessment instruments (the means of measuring the outcomes of the assessment) that the students or trainees will complete. Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Assessment Instruments,” present a rationale for the assessment instruments, explaining how using those instruments are appropriate to measure achievement of the learning goals and using and citing the readings.

Under the final heading, which might be “Setting Standards,” “Setting Benchmarks,” “Setting Targets,” or some combination of these or similar terms, present your recommendations for interpreting the results of the assessment. Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Setting Standards” (or whichever term you selected), present a rationale for your decisions, using and citing the readings.

Do not add a conclusion, for the remaining components of your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan will follow these components.
