Stakeholders and Action Plan Assignment
Stakeholders and Action Plan to Prepare for Assessment
For this assignment, you will continue constructing your course 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 poStakeholders and Action Plan Assignmentsition or in the future.
Still keeping in mind that you will be proposing this plan to a decision-maker who will consider whether to implement your plan, you will develop three additional components of your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan:
The components that describes the stakeholders and their roles in the assessment effort.
The action plan needed for effective implementation of the assessment effort.
The introduction to the final component of your plan, “Closing the Loop,” in which you will explain how your plan to assess learning outcomes connects to the larger context of the effectiveness of the program, department, or institution under which such assessment falls.
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.
Please note: The components that you design for this assignment immediately follow the components you created in Unit 6. Therefore, do not write an introduction.
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.
Under the heading “Stakeholders,” briefly identify both the internal and external stakeholders and briefly describe their roles in the assessment effort. Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Stakeholders,” present a rationale for the inclusion of the stakeholders, using and citing the readings as appropriate.
Under the next heading, “Action Plan to Guide Implementation,” briefly describe the steps that are needed to plan and develop the assessment effort before its actual implementation. Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Action Plan,” present a rationale for the steps you are recommending, using and citing the readings.
Under the final heading for this assignment, “Closing the Loop,” explain how your plan to assess learning outcomes is intended to connect to the larger context of the effectiveness of the program, department, or institution. Explain how your proposed assessment efforts are intended to pertain to accreditation, either directly or indirectly. (It is essential that you use the readings for this section; do not make assumptions that cannot be supported by credible sources. In the rare cases where accreditation does not apply, this content will be omitted.) Then, under the sub-heading “Rationale for Closing the Loop,” present a rationale for your decisions, using and citing the readings.
Do not add a conclusion, for the “Closing the Loop” component of your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan will be further developed in the next units.
Your submission should meet the following requirements:
Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
APA formatting: Paper, resources, and citations are formatted according to current APA style and formatting.
Length: 3–6 pages, double-spaced with headings and sub-headings.
