Identify challenges encountered and realistic solutions when implementing outcomes-based assessment
Write a 4- page narrative essay in which you develop a set of assessment practices for the keyboarding course based on an Adult Keyboarding Class Curriculum
In the essay be sure to:
• Define and state the purpose for outcomes based assessment.
• Identify challenges encountered and realistic solutions when implementing outcomes-based assessment.
Length: at least 4 pages, not counting the title page and references.
References: At least three references should be included from academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included, but you should use the Trident library to find additional sources. Quoted material should not exceed 20% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be enclosed in quotes. The references should be cited within the text and also listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (in APA format).
Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to question.
Format: APA format is required.
Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.
The following items will be assessed in particular:
• Relevance (e.g., all content is connected to the question).
• Precision (e.g., specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate).
• Depth of discussion (e.g., present and integrate points that lead to deeper issues).
• Breadth (e.g., multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues and factors considered).
• Evidence (e.g., points are well-supported with facts, statistics, and references).
• Logic (e.g., presented discussion makes sense, conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information).
• Clarity (e.g., writing is concise, understandable, and contains sufficient detail or examples).
• Objectivity (e.g., avoid use of first person and subjective bias).
