Planning
Description
Determine the type of data needed to
address research questions, the
assessment instrument(s) needed, and
the types of analyses required.
Determine the minimum number of
students (sample size) necessary for
statistical significance (power).
Provide a random sample, if possible,
and pilot instrument. At this stage,
check reliability or validity.
Select course sections and students for
whom the assessment should be given.
Analyze the data obtained from the
assessment.
Based on the research questions,
determine the format in which the data
will be displayed (e.g., graphs, tables,
etc.). Present the results to
stakeholders (e.g., students, faculty,
and administration). Obtain feedback
and recommendations from stake
holders. Based on feedback from
stakeholders provide recommendations
for change that are supported by the
data collected and analysis provided.
Based on a feasibility study or budget
analysis, begin the implementation
process for recommended changes. For
those changes that cannot be
immediately implemented, provide a
rationale. Implementation strategies
may change based on end-of-term
evaluations.
In this stage, you design the evaluation
plan to be used for the next
implementation of each SLO. This plan
should address the expected outcomes
desired as a result of the implemented
changes. Implementation strategies
should be evaluated at the end of each
term.

Question
Fa13 & Sp14 Technology Readiness Assessment
Please provide any additional comments that will assist Daley
College in helping students to be better prepared with the use
of technology.
– “We should do more educating on excel more than anything.” (FA13)
– “I have had to use Microsoft Word and Power Point for assignments and
presentations, but I have never before had to use Excel. Perhaps Professors should
be more sure to implement excel in their coursework.” (FA13)
– “I was only required to use Excel in my Stats class; however, I have not used it in any
other class.” (SP14)
– I think that everyone one should take a computer course for Microsoft office that way
they are familiar in using all formats. This allows them to get through assignments
and papers quicker as well. (SP14)

Alternative Solution


Provide not only shelter but also specific training
programs for residents.
Partner with a serious institution, private or public, that
could offer employment to tent city residents.
