Four Levels of Evaluation

NUR662 ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION IN NURSING EDUCATION

Module 5 Assignment  

Four Levels of Evaluation

Turnitin®

 This course has Turnitin® fully integrated into the course dropbox. This means that you should only submit your assignments to the dropbox below. Please do not submit your assignment directly to Turnitin.com.

 

Once submitted, your assignment will be evaluated by Turnitin® automatically. You will be able to view an Originality Report within minutes of your first submission that will show how much of your work has been identified as similar to other sources such as websites, textbooks, or other student papers. Use your Originality Report as a learning tool to identify areas of your assignment that you may not have cited appropriately. The overall match can be no higher than 15%, with any one match no higher than 2%. You may resubmit your assignment through this dropbox as many times as you need to check to see if you have made improvements, until the due date of the assignment. However, once you have made your first submission, you will need to wait 24 hours after each subsequent submission to receive a new Originality Report. Plan accordingly as you draft your assignment. Once the due date has passed, your assignment submission will be considered final.

 

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

 

NUR 662 M5A1: Four- Levels of Evaluation Assignment Instructions

 

In week 5 you will put all the parts together in one APA formatted paper with references and submit it in the drop box. In week 6 place it in the discussion area for other students to see your work.

 

The paper consists of the following criteria:

 

Introduction: Briefly explain the estimated cost of the training or learning session. (this would include materials, room space, employee time, etc.).

 

Pre-evaluation

 

Create an evaluation tool to test your trainees to determine their knowledge, skill levels, and attitudes prior engagement with the training or educational session. Provide the rationale for choosing the evaluation method based on what participants are intended to learn. Support your choice with current evidence with at least two sources, and one outside of nursing. (measured in Synthesis of Evidence on grading rubric).

 

Level One: Reaction

 

Identify how you will measure reaction.

 

Create a survey tool that measures the reaction of participants, which includes evaluation of whether the training was worth participants’ time, successfulness of the training, strengths, and weaknesses of the training, if participants like the venue and presentation style, and if training session accommodated their personal learning styles. This level measures the subject matter, faculty, facility, and learning tools.

 

Level Two: Learning

 

Identify what is being evaluated (changes in knowledge, skills, or attitudes).

 

Create an evaluation tool that measures learning that is appropriate to the learning situation. Describe rationale for evaluation method. Support your choice with current evidence with at least two sources, and one outside of nursing (measured in Synthesis of Evidence on grading rubric).

 

Level Three: Behavior

 

Describes when evaluation will occur.

 

Create evaluation tool that measures changes in behaviors related to the learning situation.

 

Provide rationale for using evaluation method. Be sure that the evaluation tool helps to measure if participants put any of their learning into action, able to teach their new knowledge, skills, or attitudes to other people, and or if they are aware that they have changed their behavior. Support your work with current evidence with at least two sources, and one outside of nursing (measured in Synthesis of Evidence on grading rubric).

 

Level Four: Results

 

Identify which outcomes, benefits, or final results are most closely linked to the training/ educational session.

 

Create a tool to analyze the results of the training or educational session, which includes an analysis of the Return on Investment (ROI). Then calculate the ROI (it is okay to estimate costs and benefits). For example, improved patient outcomes, improved employee/ student retention, less waste, etc.).

 

Integration of Evidence.

 

Consistently integrate credible, relevant sources to support ideas appropriate for the assignment. Use information in ways that are true to original context. Always distinguishes between own ideas or common knowledge and ideas requiring attribution. Scholarly articles integrated within the paper meet the following standards:

 

Provides the required number of references.

 

Most nursing-specific or nursing-related

 

Provides the required number of references from a discipline outside nursing

 

Published within 5 years OR published beyond 5 years if seminal source or gap in the literature.

 

Style & Presentation

Module 8 Assignment  

 

Capstone Preparation: Milestones

 

You have now begun Phase II of your nursing program, congratulations! Now is the time to think about finding a mentor for your Capstone experience and if an affiliation agreement is needed.  Please take the time to view the FAQ section in the MS Practice Experience Guide. This should lead you toward completing a successful Capstone project and experience in the near future.

 

Also, visit the My Practice Experience Marketplace. This course will be your “one-stop shopping” site for practice experience information as you take courses in the Bachelor, and/or Master of Science programs for the School of Nursing at Excelsior College. Here you can find a list of Capstone Practice Experience project ideas that can be done on-site or remotely with a mentor.

 

The Capstone is the final requirement of the nursing program. It provides students with an opportunity to apply knowledge and competencies gained throughout the program of study to actual or simulated situations. The capstone practice experience project is individualized, and the rate at which you’ll progress will depend on many factors such as your ability to find a mentor, your ability to manage your time, and your need for an affiliation agreement.

 

Excelsior’s capstone course occurs over a 15-week period and includes 247.5 practice experience hours. These hours include working on the project proposal, searching for supporting scholarly works, time spent with your mentor, independent project activities, writing a scholarly paper, preparing an abstract intended for submission to a professional organization and/or journal, and recording a presentation.

 

You can—and should—begin planning for your capstone and your need to find a Mentor as soon as you begin your Phase II courses. This guide  Download guideoutlines what you need to do to be ready to start your capstone and what the path through your capstone looks like. If the organization where you will be completing your Capstone Practice Experience requires an Affiliation Agreement, contact the School of Nursing as soon as possible. The Affiliation Agreement process can take up to 16 weeks to complete.

 

Affiliation Agreement: An affiliation agreement is a legal agreement between Excelsior College and the facility where you’ll be completing your capstone work. Not all facilities require agreements, but if they do, the agreement has to be approved by both the facility’s and Excelsior’s legal departments and can take up to 16 weeks to finalize. That’s why it’s so important to start prepping for your capstone as soon as you begin Phase II of your master’s program. Your potential mentor should be able to direct you to the department that can tell you if an affiliation agreement is needed.

 

IRB Application: Some facilities require students to obtain Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval prior to working on a quality improvement project. The primary purpose of the IRB is to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects and to ensure ethical principles are followed in research.  While quality improvement projects are not research, in some cases they warrant IRB review to protect the rights of staff during a quality improvement. Does the facility where you will be working with your mentor and completing your practice experience require IRB approval?

Evaluation

 

This assignment is Pass/Fail and required to receive a grade in the course. Once you begin your Capstone course, you will gain approval for your Capstone Project and mentor, by submitting a project proposal. You will have the opportunity during the first three (3) weeks of the capstone course to refine your project proposal based on feedback from your capstone course instructor. Students cannot begin working on their Capstone Practice Experience with their Mentor until the Capstone course has officially started, they have received approval from their Capstone course instructor, and a fully executed affiliation agreement is in place, if applicable.
