Curriculum Evaluation Project

Curriculum Evaluation Project Slide 1:   Curriculum Evaluation Project Application of CIPP: LPN to BSN Curriculum Slide  2: Introduction:   A Model Approach to Curriculum Evaluation A model provides a conceptual framework the enables evaluation of curriculum according to the purpose of the evaluation and the content of the curriculum. Evaluation is the process of delineating, obtaining, and providing useful information for judging alternatives to various decisions. (Glatthorn, et al, 2012, p. 167) The concepts of the CIPP model (context, input, process, and product) facilitate the evaluation steps that consist of delineating, obtaining, and providing useful information for judging decisions (Stufflebeam et al., 1971; Stufflebeam Webster, 1994 ). C – Context of the program =   This allows for the determination of objectives. Slide  3:   The CIPP Curriculum Evaluation Model Developed by a Phi Delta Kappa committee chaired by Daniel Stufflebeam in 1971, the CIPP model is one of a number of approaches to curriculum evaluation used in the field of health science.   Four key components constitute the CIPP model, as follows: C – Context of the program I – Input into the program P – Process within the program P – Product of the program â€Å"The CIPP model, however, has some serious drawbacks associated with it. Its main weakness seems to be its failure to recognize the complexity of the decision-making process in organizations. It assumes more rationality than exists in such situations and ignores the political factors that play a large part in these decisions. Also, as Guba and Lincoln (1981) noted, it seems difficult to implement and expensive to maintain.†   (Glatthorn, et al., 2012, p.167). Slide 4:  Nursing Curriculum:  A Focus on Decision-Making Delineating:   This first step of the evaluation process focuses the requirements of the information that is to be collected through specifying, defining, and explaining.    Obtaining: The second step of the evaluation process makes information available through familiar processes such as collecting, organizing, and analyzing.    Providing:   This final step of the evaluation process synthesized the information, combining them into systems or subsystems to best fit the evaluation purposes. Decision-Making Types: -Intended Ends (goals) -Intended Means (procedural designs) -Actual Means (procedures in use) -Actual Ends (attainments) A wide array of methods can be used to evaluate a curriculum, with each method or approach addressing some aspect of delineating, Here are some common ways. Several of these would normally be used in combination: discussion with class informal conversation or observation Slide 5:  Nursing Curriculum    A Focus on Decision-Making   Continued Intended Actual Ends Planning Decisions (goals) Recycling Decisions (attainments) Means Structuring Decisions (procedural designs) Implementing Decisions (procedures in use) Focuses on Decision making The model considers the inMended and actual ends and means of the various elements of decision making.    Planning Decisions To determine objectives such as those that might be used by policy makers and administrators. Slide 6:   Nursing Curriculum Types of Decisions Evaluations Intended Actual Ends Planning Decisions (goals) Recycling Decisions (attainments) supported by Context Evaluation supported by Product Evaluation Means Structuring Decisions (procedural designs) Implementing Decisions (procedures in use) supported by Input Evaluation supported by Process Evaluation Slide 7:  Context Evaluation Identifies the needs of the target population The situations of students are considered in program design and delivery. Flexible scheduling prevents students from getting spun out of a lock-step sequence, as pre-requisites for core courses are kept to a minimum. Coursework is rigorous, yet adequately bridges the skills and knowledge gap between LPN and RSN professional experience. ARTIFACTS OF PROGRAM DESCRIPTION DELIVERY METHODS This module contains assignments and information for multiple course delivery methods.    Slide 8:   Input Evaluation Identifies and assesses system capabilities and considers alternative program   strategies The curricula is regularly updated to reflect evidence-based practice and specifically designed develop strong decision-making skills that function in academic and practice contexts. A flexible course schedule is designed to meet the needs of place bound students who must access the program online and the needs of students who can attend classes on campus. Faculty are highly experienced practitioners who stay current with new technology and understand best practices in clinical adult education. A focus on cohort learning teams and teamwork skills is directly applicable to clinical and hospital settings upon graduation. Artifacts from program description: Regularly updated curricula that focus on evidence-based practice and stronger decision-making skills you can use now, not just after graduation. Faculty members whose average 20 years of experience bring life to the curricula. A flexible course schedule that allows you to study the BSN program online or on campus, where available. Slide 9:   Process Evaluation identifies defects in the curriculum design Based on an array of organizational attributes and intentional support structures, students are empowered to succeed. Highly experienced teaching faculty with advanced degrees from a variety of nursing roles. Excellent ratio of instructors to students, and a dedicated team of follow-along advisors. Programs are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Artifacts from program description: Learn from nurse leaders with advanced degrees and relevant nursing experience.   Every class is taught by a masters- or doctoral-prepared nursing professional. Our more than 800 faculty members average more than 5 years of teaching experience and 14 years of professional experience — many of them are in roles you may aspire to, including Director of Nursing, Chief Nursing Officer and nurse educator. Intimate class sizes in the Division of Nursing average 14 students, allowing for dynamic, personal interaction with classmates and instructors.   A team of advisors stay with students every step of the way until graduation. Slide 10:   Product Evaluation Analyzes outcomes and correlates them to the objectives, context, input, and process information, resulting in the interpretation of results. A variety of performance input measures are considered, and assignments are weighted according to pre-determined criteria. Feedback loops are complete and stakeholder input is considered as integral to the module revision process. ARTIFACTS OF PROGRAM DESCRIPTION MODULE REVISION HISTORY Refer to the table below to determine if module changes made since you created your syllabus are significant enough to require a new syllabus. Slide 11:   Conclusions LPN to BSN Curriculum Evaluation During each of stages of the CIPP process, specific steps are accomplished: The kinds of decisions are identified. The kinds of data needed to make those decisions are identified. Those data are collected. The criteria for determining quality are established. The data are analyzed on the basis of those criteria. The needed information is provided to decision makers The overall evaluation of the curriculum is positive with all key elements in place.   A single drawback is that the coursework to progress from LPN to BSN is not available at all campus locations.

I Am After School Programs - 2949 Words

Introduction It is said that the children of today are the children of the future. The only problem with this statement is that the children of today seem to be getting into more trouble than anybody could imagine. Children are painting graffiti in the neighborhood, misbehaving at home and in some cases, showing no respect for the law. In a recent commentary in the publication of the Harvard Research Project, stated that participation in an after-school program gets children and youth off the streets and under supervision and potentially prevents some risky behaviors. (Little et, al. 7) Now that we know that there is a problem with the children of today, it is time to find a solution.

The school’s name is displayed next to the front doors, in big metal letters. When entering the building I had to go through three doors before getting inside. As I entered the first door, I had to ring a buzzer and get buzzed in. When I entered the office, the receptionist asked for my name and the purpose of my visit. She asked me to fill-out a log with my name and the time and purpose of my visit. She then gave me a visitor’s pass. On the right side of the second door, the stairs lead to the second and third floors. On the left side, there was a white wall with lockers. Once I entered the third door on my right, I saw two long hallways with classrooms. In the middle of the hallways, there were bathrooms. At the end of the hallway on my left, was the school gym. The children go there to play different activities. The gym is also used as a cafeteria, where children have their meals, from 11:05 to 12:00 pm. The second and third floors have the same design as the first floor. The school has a very welcoming feel. Appreciation for the students and the teachers is shown on every wall, with different kinds of artwork, pictures of projects and student awards.

DoubtsUncertainties in Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing

CA Draft Love, hate, fair and foul are tightly entwined around the core of drama. Although they are extreme opposite, they blur together to create the perfect partnership, which allows characters to appear different to their internal feelings. Whether it’s through the ‘barbed banter’ of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ or the ‘saucy doubts and fears’ of Macbeth, Shakespeare presents scenarios where central characters place their credence where they should have agnosticism and their doubts where they should act with surety. Shakespeare clearly presents Beatrice and Benedick rooted in animosity towards one another. They frequently express their certainty of this; for example when Benedick labels Beatrice as ‘Lady Disdain’, so she retaliates by†¦show more content†¦I will requite thee’. Beatrice’s emotions have experienced a drastic change since Act 1 Scene 1, where she is noted as insulting Benedick’s appearance by saying ‘Scratching could not make it worse, and ‘twere such a face as yours were’. Judging by this, it seems almost impossible to think she could feel any remotely benevolent feelings towards him, but further analysis into the play suggests the opposite. In act 1 Scene 1, Beatrice says ‘I know you of old’, which proposes the idea that there has been a history between the two, unknown to the reader. When Beatrice and Benedick finally profess their love for each other in Act 4, Shakespeare continues the sprinkling of doubts and uncertainties through his convoluted use of syntax, repetition of negative ideas and paradox. ‘I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is that not strange?’ In Act 4 Scene 1, Beatrice and Benedick are left in private, which gives them the opportunity to reveal their feelings for one another. The addition of the question at the end of the quotation denotes that Benedick has realised the enormity of what he has just stated, so therefore questions Beatrice and labels it as strange to make it seem less significant, as he still has feelings of doubt over his new emotions. Benedick is eager to know what Beatrice really thinks of him, much like in Act 2 Scene 1 at the Masked Ball, where he questions ‘I pray you, what is he?’ in hope of uncovering a deep feeling that Beatrice holds for him, onlyShow MoreRelatedModern English Macbeth21221 Words   |  85 PagesModern English Macbeth www.nosweatshakespeare.com Modern English Shakespeare resources ebooks Contents About the Author Page 3 Act One Scene One Act One Scene Two Act One Scene Three Act One Scene Four Act One Scene Five Act One Scene Six Act One Scene Seven Page 5 Page 6 Page 8 Page 12 Page 14 Page 16 Page 17 Act Two Scene One Act Two Scene Two Act Two Scene Three Act Two Scene Four Page 19 Page 21 Page 23 Page 26 Act Three Scene One Act Three Scene

Leadership Styles Of The Road Management And Authority...

In Chapter 4, Blake and Mouton explain several different leadership styles such as: Impoverished Management, Middle-of-the-Road Management, Authority-Compliance, Country Club Management, Team Management, Paternalism/Maternalism and Opportunism. After a while of reflection, I eventually come to the notion that my primary leadership style is the Paternalism/Maternalism, or in my case Maternalism. Paternalism/Maternalism suggests the leader uses both Country-Club Management and Authority-Compliance but does not mix them. This means that they have thoughtful attention towards the needs of the people to create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere and if need be, they decide that they will be efficient in their work by disregarding the needs of the people. This leader acts kindly so that their group is able to accomplish the desired goal. These leaders are often described as motherly according to their followers, some examples are that they make most of the decisions, reward loyalty and o bedience as well as punishing non-cooperation. I believe that I fall into this category of leadership for many reasons. Although there are some parts of this leadership style that I do not follow, like, the inability to listen to others ideas and making most of the decisions. I know that I am pretty open minded when it comes to new ideas and I usually will let people make decisions for the group if their idea is legitimate and it is appropriate.

Launch of New Product Line

Question: Describe about the Launch of New Product Line. Answer: Introduction The dispatch is the way towards supplying a further object into the business sector for establishing deal. Its motive for present is to lift the odds of engaging in the coveted interest outcome, and it has a noteworthy have an effect on the brand new product line's on the whole talking achievement. In spite of the significance of the dispatch, its risks and excessive bills, this stage is mostly ineffectively overseen, and an unstructured dispatch system is itself a natural test. Moreover, dispatching is traditionally a bustling time in the company because the presentation dates methods (Beard and Easingwood, 1996). Simply as new object development stage models challenge agencies to entire calendar and asset arranging, and to warranty the fundamental workouts are completed in time, a composed comprehension of the dispatch process might support in arranging and overseeing dispatches. Be that as it's going to, writing seems to offer minimal deliberate exploration on dispatch strategies or dispatch exercises. Using capacity distinct and NPD stage specific examples of pass-utilitarian becoming a member of is main for new product line success. Correspondingly, its recommended right here that comprehension the cross functional knowledge exchange amid dispatch from the showcasing capability's standpoint could add to constructing up a sorted out way to maintain dispatch administration. Showcasing is the ability answerable for overseeing object dispatches and that responsibility entails guaranteeing that the directors have the proper information at the privilege time (Benedetto, 1999). Promoting is a point of convergence and correspondence center amid dispatch, yet it is a testing and deficiently comprehended phase. At the season of dispatch, participation between RD, selling and operations is excessive, identical to the level of knowledge use, and the one of a kind data types utilized mirror an expansive association of vulnerabilities that ought to be determined over a broad useful base. The rationale for this be taught is to add to the comprehension of dispatch system administration by means of examining what type of knowledge, and with which capacities, selling trades in more than a few intervals of a dispatch approach (Cetinkaya and Thiele, 2015). The point is to bring together a rich and sorted out depiction of the surprise. To begin with the dispatch writing and writing on go-useful becoming a member of amid NPD is classified with a targeted end purpose to bring together a hypothetically developed constitution involving show casings knowledge alternate with different capacities amid dispatch. The procedure is used to investigate the surprise through an inside and out subjective contextual evaluation. The study winds up with an observationally grounded approach for promptings cross-sensible data alternate amid dispatch that distinguishes dispatch approach levels, information types, and knowledge exchange parties (Cooper, 2008). Product line launch process The dispatch system is utilized right here as part of the finding out procedure for the data alternate examination. A normal depiction of the dispatch process stages is affordable for that reason, since it catches the assignments that rehash in each and every dispatch paying little mind to the connection, even regardless of the fact that each institution tailors the features of interest of its dispatch strategies to suit its tradition, customers, industry and types of objects. With a unique end purpose to constitution the portrayal of the dispatch process levels, contemplates which depict the dispatch workout routines in more element than as a one interval of a NPD process were sought (Debruyne, 2002). Henceforth, these 4 movement gatherings are named dispatch approach phases and their motivation is to present a usually image of the dispatch system. Dispatch arranging can start when the business case has been archived and settled upon, and target clients, product line definition and separation what's more; the principle traces of the channel, operations and client administration disorders have been characterized. The important product line dispatch choices are considered as key givens for a dispatch arrangement, as the center of this study is on executing the process dispatch process for brand new gadgets in an object founded corporation, not watching at an ultimate dispatch process (Di Benedetto, 1999). A dispatch association addresses disorders for instance, venture arranging and assets, consumer trials, estimating, a rollout method, a correspondence association, and nittier gritty channel selections, a deals preparing association, purchaser administration arrangement, hazard evaluation, offers and dispersion support, product line marking, and timing of the presentation. Launch planning and tests stage conveys out the dispatch arrangement and the preparations for the presentation. Preparations are made, for instance, for advertising correspondence materials a nd occasions, guaranteeing gentle incline up, and getting ready patron administration and the business vigor (Fraenkel, Haftor and Pashkevich, 2016). Checking out gives customer criticism on the model or the object and selling, and tests showcasing, customer bolster, deals making ready, and the order delivery-return cycle. Launch execution is familiar with the prologue to the market through the organized and arranged particular exercises, and the dissemination and deals help. In the dispatch checking and assessment stage, offers and showcasing effort are checked unless the long haul assessment has been completed and the dispatch process closes. The dispatch is classified utilizing both quick-and long haul measurements and moreover subjective evaluation of dispatch exercises (Hultink, 1997). Information categories of the product launch line Information lessons are the 2nd component used here as a part of the finding out constitution. Data is characterized because the express style of information, which has a constitution and a connection that provide it a value. Knowledge exchange right here alludes to information streams to and from showcasing and accommodates a portrayal of the data content, but not of the measure of information. A solitary information alternate be aware contains of the trade occasion integrated, data classification and bearing of the alternate. The trained embraces an instrumental strategy to take care of knowledge trade (Hultink, 1999). The interest is in the utilization of traded information for the motivations in the back of taking good care of issues and doing workouts. On this method the data classes here depend upon the topical substance of the traded data. Cross-functional information during the launching of new line Contemplates on go-useful becoming a member of amid NPD seem at move-sensible correspondence as a product line of combination, contain the focal elements of a organization, and admire amongst NPD system levels. Alongside these strains, this be trained integrates show casings data trades with RD, assembling and offers amid dispatch by extricating the applicable discoveries from the experiences on pass-functional combine amid NPD (Hultink, 2000). Indeed regardless of the truth that exclusive capacities or partners may just likewise be relevant to dispatch, for example, operations, customer administration and dispatch administration, they're generally prohibited from cross-useful incorporation considers in NPD connection, where the capacities picked are regularly in view of the stages of collaboration what's more, correspondence. Be that as it should, the accentuation is right here to get the overall picture of the included events and the information traded. The relationship amongst pro moting and RD is probably essentially the most seemed into move-utilitarian relationship. Study and development gives selling with essential specialized information on delicate factors of product line elements, characteristics and benefits, utilized for dispatch arranging (Hultink and Robben, 1999). Figure: Information exchange during launch of product line Venture administration data is traded in request to handle the dispatch. Chiefly, knowledge regarding the coordination of NPD what's more, dispatch calendars will have to be basic. This study makes use of subjective methods to compare show casings go-valuable data trades amid dispatch in its common setting in request to exhibit the implications members attribute to them. Information categories as per the line content After watchful investigation, eight data lessons have been uncommon: aggressive, consumer, money associated, market, and venture administration, valuable, strategic and specialized data. In the observational information a gathering of data trades regarding the strategic level of dispatch didn't match the hypothetically developed data lessons, additionally, the strategic data class was formed in light of the usually referred to definitions for strategic dispatch choices (Hultink, Griffin, Hart and Robben, 1997). It moreover was once intelligent to consolidate client report and desires and-needs data, in light of the truth that the expertise did not evidently find when consumer information was once linked to a precise report. Information exchange required The workshops and the conferences confirmed the pertinent inside data exchange parties for showcasing amid propelling to be deals, RD, producing, high administration, secondary selling administrations, and renovation. It ought to be seen that in the inspected company assembling accommodates the contemplations on appropriation and logistics (might be called operations in other businesses). Alternate with a section of the gatherings may just be incidental but all product lines viewed incorporate shifted information (Kowang, Long, Rasli and Heng, 2014). Promoting will get numerous customer data, exceptionally from deals, moreover from AMS, renovation and RD, who're in direct factor of interest. Contact with consumers in addition has data on contenders, normal industry sector characteristics and patterns. Showcasing will get strategic information from deals on how the product line will have to be dispatched, in gentle of the fact that the trade capability has principal expertise on dispatch reasonable gadgets. Amid dispatch arrangements and assessments, show casings knowledge exchange with one of kind gatherings is more proportional than amid dispatch arranging. Showcasing each accumulates and disperses numerous different types of knowledge (Kuester, Homburg, and Hess, 2012). Phase Info profile Action Direction Planning Information gathering before starting RD, management and line maintenance Towards accuracy and effectiveness Preparations Interactive preparation RD, management and line maintenance Towards production line Testing Low high RD, management and line maintenance Towards precision Table: Phase information during the launch of new product line Showcasing conveys strategic dispatch knowledge on showcasing correspondences, workout routines, and enterprise administration information on calendars to offers, and displays the dispatch plan to satisfactory administration. Significant consumers and unique capacities inside the company are knowledgeable about pending objects with a detailed finish purpose to bring together curiosity additionally, accountability and to compose the showcasing correspondences and object checks. Selling will get enter from specific gatherings related to, for instance, object elements and fees, to be used in dispatch preparations (Langerak, Hultink and Robben, 2004). Information about the new product line on this stage continues to be kept to a limited gathering of companions incorporated in product line growth, fabricating, alternatively dispatch arranging and preparations. All promoting materials need to be all set and the dispatch ability assured before the within presentation. Figure: Information exchange Promoting examines with fabricating the product line delicate elements that influence, for case, the product line's last visible traits also, bundling. Research and progress plans client documentation and conveys specialized data for advertising interchanges and deals apparatuses. Inner acquaintance was regarded with be the most exquisite and testing of the dispatch system phases for advertising, consequently of its have an effect on the dispatch achievement and in view that the information exchange requires massive endeavors (Talke and Colarelli O'Connor, 2011). Strategic information is traded with just a few gatherings as promoting illuminates the association in regards to the new object and the inevitable dispatch and kinds out specialized and non-specialized product line making ready, including knowledge on deals and dispatch systems. Selling will get a minute in the past input from the association on promoting correspondences, dispatch substances and execution arranges, and on p roduct line attributes. Trades of venture administration information, certainly on dispatch plans, weren't well-known on this stage (Talke and Hultink, 2010). Information type Description Technical Technical details of the product line Strategic Strategic guidelines and plans at different phases Regulatory Rules and regulations related information Market Information regarding growth, size and trends End user Information regarding product produced for end user Financial Cost related information Competitive Competitors and their capabilities, strategies etc. Table: Product line information (Viio and Nordin, 2015) Conclusion The disclosures make a promise to examine on dispatch gathering and move-precious record in the midst of NPD. In the first place, this be proficient developed a get prepared strategy on publicizing and show casings disregard helpful information trade the range of dispatch, that permits you to be used to pick up learning of the shock in a considerable amount of firms and settings. So far as the writer knows, this is the real constitution that presents the wonder to a great extent in endeavor with the dispatch structure levels, making sense of lessons and social occasions compelled. The expansion discovering of recognizes clear differences in the method for the making sense of option over the dispatch system stages and along these lines demonstrates the profiles that depict the publicizing performs go-utilitarian information exchange every last part of the dispatch strategy, and with each and every of the bent trade parties. Go-important combo and its choice varieties sway all by means of the NPD levels, and the revelations of this study appeal that the unclear would see to dispatch technique stages. Second, this focus little print the multifaceted way of publicizing go-valuable inclination exchanges and coordinative capacity for the season of dispatch, any item supplying top notch been suggested at in the before composing.
