Reference the for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated. This week you will have two discussions. Your Instructor will be choosing the discussions questions and posting them as the first posts in the discussion forums. The requirements for the discussion this week are a minimum of four posts on four separate days. The total combined word count for all of your posts, counted together, should be over 600 words. Be sure to answer all the questions in the prompt and to read any resources that are required to complete the discussion properly. In order to satisfy the posting requirements for the week, complete your initial post by Day 3 (Thursday) and your other posts by Day 7 (Monday). We recommend that you get into the discussion early and spread out your posts over the course of the week. Be sure to reply to your classmates and instructor. Try to attempt to take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or responding to the posts that they make to you. Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze things in as much detail as you can.
Search for a current (no more than two months old) news story (article, other piece of writing, or video clip) that examines an ethical issue touched on in the Module 9 readings or discussion. Alternatively, you may search for a current event that you think relates to an ethical issue or theory from the readings or discussion. Connect the dots in your post and show how the current news story or event relates to an ethical issue or theory identified in the text and/or discussion. Your post should include a link to the news story or event (article, other piece of writing, or video clip). In addition to sharing the link, you need to show a clear connection between the news story/event and the module material in a post of at least 200 words.
To ensure the success of a program evaluation, a social worker must generate a specific detailed plan. That plan should describe the goal of the evaluation, the information needed, and the methods and analysis to be used. In addition, the plan should identify and address the concerns of stakeholders. A social worker should present information about the plan in a manner that the stakeholders can understand. This will the social worker receive the support necessary for a successful evaluation. To prepare for this Assignment, identify a program evaluation you would like to conduct for a program with which you are familiar. Consider the details of the evaluation, including the purpose, specific questions to address, and type of information to collect. Then, consider the stakeholders that would be involved in approving that evaluation. Review the resources for samples of program evaluations. the following:
Prompt: Historiography is the practice of analyzing how the historical context of a time influences how historians write about and interpret historical events. First, choose three secondary sources from your selected topic in the Research Kit and copy and paste the full citation of each article into the Article Citation field. Next, explain in the chart below how you think the historical context of the time when these articles were written may have impacted the authors’ interpretations of the events. You are encouraged to check out this website to you formulate your thoughts on the historical context of your articles.

Retrieved February 19, 2014, from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/cris-rowan/technology-children-negative-impact_b_3343245.html The Module 3 Case study is an Argumentative essay in which the writer takes a stance on technology and children and provides three or more supporting points as support. After reflecting on “The Impact of Technology on the Developing Child” and “Is the Internet hurting children?” write a well-organized and well-supported essay on technology and children. A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be brief summary on technology and children today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming the impact of technology on children today. A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have one or two paragraphs for each supporting point? Will you divide the body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph, which in this case would be each supporting point. The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where do we go from here? Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 3 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English. Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins. The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay.
I must have original WORK…with up to date reference or references. all parts of the question ANSWERED. A nice paragraph with at least one recent reference. It is advisable that not only a regional hospital but all the hospitalsjust like any other company keep track oftheir HR metrics and analytics (Moriarty, 2018). There are different opportunities that the metrics and analytics could be appliedin an organization. Organizations have to build metrics to improve their accountability. These opportunities include the utilizationof the three P’s (proximity, position, andpersuasion) (Yount, 2011). The proximity of the leaders makes the people feel their presence and perform better, the possession of the leader also can make the people performtheir duties, leaders are also able to use their position to persuade the team to achieve specificgoals (Yount, 2011). The checklistwhich is as a result of the metrics makesthe team check their progress to improve or better their performance. Some of the opportunities where the organization can include their metrics and analytics include in considerations of the revenue per employee., expense, compensation, benefits of an incomeas well as of costsand compensation to their employees (Kavanagh, 018). These are just some of the considerations. In regional hospital, there are various opportunitiesin which the metrics and analytics could be applied. Some of the considerations or opportunities include the length of patients stays. Thereshould be data thatis showing the time that a patient has sped in the hospital for various purposes like the attention that they have received so far. They also to determine the “hospital-acquired conditions (HACs), as well as higher patient mortality rates.” (Moriarty, 2018)The regional hospitals can be used to determine the rates of the readmissions, the HospitalConsumer Assessment of HealthcareProviders Systems (HCAHPS) (Moriarty, 2018). They can as well learnthe Mortalityrates, the utilizationof the available beds, the various occurrence of different incidences, the averagecost per Discharge, the operating margins of the hospitals, determine the terribledebts among others (Moriarty, 2018).

1. To be considered true research, a project must: A. gather together a body of existing information and communicate it in a clear and concise way. B.uncover obscure or esoteric information and bring it to the consideration of the broader research community. C. gather and interpret information in a systematic fashion so as to increase understanding of some phenomenon. D.produce definitive conclusions regarding the subject of study. 2. Which of the following examples illustrates research as it is described in your textbook? Sally is writing a paper about the effects of the Harry Potter books on the reading habits of fourth graders in the United States and United Kingdom. She goes to a research library to find information to include in her paper. Ian wants to know why the population of songbirds has declined in recent years in the Sutton Wilderness Area. He carefully collects soil and water samples, systematically surveys the entire area for predators, and then sits down to make sense of his findings. Leonard is starting a woodworking business and is not sure how to calculate the cost of his labor so he can be both profitable and fair to the customers. He asks several established business owners how they calculate labor changes. Bill is doing a report on the sonnets of Shakespeare. He carefully reads a number of sonnets and then carefully reads scholarly reviews of those same sonnets written by various Shakespeare scholars. He synthesizes all of this information in his report. 3. Research is considered cyclical because: the researcher articulates the goals of the project and then collects data to solve a particular problem. questions lead to data collection which leads to interpretations and then to new problems. it has a number of steps that should be followed in order. it is based on solving problems and subproblems in a systematic, unbiased way. 4. Cameron is conducting a study that addresses the differences in achievement scores between schools that use block scheduling and schools that use a traditional scheduling format. He has accessed average achievement scores for 1200 schools and now is comparing the two groups. In which research step is Cameron engaged? Recognize and identify a problem Interpret the meaning of the data Analyze the collected data Develop a specific plan to address the problem 5. Which of the following is most likely a statement made by a qualitative researcher? I would like to interview a few of the participants to understand their training. I would like to give participants a test to determine their skill level. I would like to use teacher ratings to see if the program worked. I would like to control which students get the training so we can compare groups of children that did and did not get training. 6. Which of the following is most likely a statement made by a quantitative researcher? Let’s follow the groups for the course of the project and take notes about their social interactions and dialogues. Let’s conduct some focus groups with college students about the types of cooperative learning they have encountered in their schooling. Let’s compare unit test scores of those who were placed in cooperative groups and those who were not. Let’s enroll in a course that uses cooperative groups and observe the nature of the instruction from a student perspective. 7. The philosophical assumption that objective scientific research can uncover true cause-and-effect relationships in the world is known as: empiricism positivism experimentation realism 8. Qualitative researchers most commonly (but not exclusively) align with which of the following philosophical approaches to research? positivism postpositivism constructivism empiricism 9. A specific mechanism or strategy the researcher uses to collect, manipulate, or interpret data is known as a: research tool. research method. statistical test. theory. 10. Research methodology refers to: the general approach the researcher takes to conducting a research project. a specific device the researcher uses to collect data. the specific theoretical basis of the research project. the statistical tests to be employed in a research project. 11. The primary purpose of inferential statistics is to: organize and summarize the data. turn qualitative data into meaningful numbers that can be interpreted. measure social and psychological phenomena in an unbiased way. the researcher draw conclusions from the data. 12. Kade has spent the past month carefully observing a group of third graders on the playground during recess, taking note of how the students interact with one another. On the basis of these observations, Kade is drawing conclusions about the interaction styles of boys and girls. This is an example of: theory building. deductive reasoning. inductive reasoning. the scientific method. 13. Kimberly knows that teenagers often do not make good decisions in areas where they have little knowledge. She also knows that most teens have little knowledge about human sexuality. Therefore, Kimberly believes that teens are likely to make poor decisions about sexual activity. This is an example of: inductive reasoning. theory building. problem solving. deductive logic. 14. Having completed a series of studies for her dissertation, Marianela sits down to brainstorm about possible explanations for her key findings. She can see a variety of ways in which all data work together, and she prepares to write a final chapter in which she presents those ideas. We would most likely say Marianela is engaged in the process of: science. theory building. constructivism. deductive reasoning. 15. The primary reason to seek research articles published in academic journals, rather than those posted by the author on the Internet, is that: they have been carefully selected after an extensive review by experts. they are more likely to follow the scientific method. they tend to focus on the most important topics in the field. they are more objective and show fewer pitfalls in human reasoning.
