Help me study for my Nursing class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
Note: Assessments in this course build on each other and must be completed in sequential order.
For this assessment, you will build an assessment plan of your own that fits with your course plan. Your assessment plan should blend seamlessly into the course components that you have already designed. To that end, you will consolidate the work you have already completed in earlier assessments with the assessment plan here in order to create a clear, concise, focused teaching plan that meets the needs of the content, learner population, and environment.
Take time to reflect on the following questions as you craft your assessment plan for your course, conducting additional research as necessary.
What types of assessment do you believe are most appropriate for your educational topic and intended audience?
- How will you evaluate whether or not learning outcomes were accomplished?
- Do the assessments you selected support cultural competence?
- How will the assessments demonstrate that learning has occurred?
- As you select the assessments that you will use, what is your rationale for the type of assessments you will use? Explain how these assessments support differences in learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)?
Also, before completing your final, complete course plan, be sure to make any necessary changes or improvements based on what you have learned over the course overall.
(Optional) Practice implementing these considerations in the Vila Health challenge provided in the Resources before beginning your work here.
Create a complete teaching plan for your course that fuses together all previous course components and includes the addition of a detailed assessment plan.
Your complete teaching plan should provide:
- An overview of the course topic, environment, and learner population.
- An explanation of the learner outcomes for the course as well as the learning theory or theories that are the foundation of the course.
- An incorporation of evidence-based best practices to enhance learner motivation in your selected learning environment and format.
- An integration of appropriate teaching strategies, techniques, and learner outcomes for nursing and healthcare education for use in specific situations and populations and of evidence-based best practices for classroom and learner management.
- A consideration of barriers to learning when designing and developing educational programs and an integration of cultural competence in nursing and healthcare educational offerings.
- A logical, well-designed assessment plan that addresses these points:
- A selection of assessment types that are most appropriate for the content, environment, and learner population.
- An explanation of how you will evaluate whether or not learning outcomes were accomplished in the course, and how assessments will demonstrate that learners have learned as intended.
- An analysis of how your selected assessment types support cultural competence as well as fit for learners with varied learning styles.
Organize your plan as follows:
- Title page.
- Table of Contents.
- An overview of your course (topic, setting audience, and so on).
- Learning Theories and Diversity (Assessment 1).
- Teaching Strategies (Assessment 2).
- Management and Motivation (Assessment 3).
- Assessment Strategies (designed in this Assessment).
Your completed plan should be clear and flow together well. It should show cohesion, understanding, and the application of best practices, and all writing should be professional and free of errors.
- Format: 12-point Times New Roman or Arial font, double-spaced in Microsoft Word.
- Length: 12–15 pages, plus a title page and a references page.
- Use correct APA format, including running head, page numbers, and a title page.
- Use and cite at least 10 references, and at least five of them from peer-reviewed journals that are not required for this course.
- Writing should be free of grammar and spelling errors that distract from content.
The resources provided here are optional. You may use other resources of your choice to prepare for this assessment; however, you will need to ensure that they are appropriate, credible, and valid. The MSN-FP6105 Library Guide can help direct your research, and the Supplemental Resources and Research Resources, both linked from the left navigation menu in your courseroom, provide additional resources to help support you.
Preparation for Assessment
You are invited to practice in the Vila Health challenge simulation setting before beginning this assessment.
