Master's Level Educational Psychology Power Point Communicating Program Results

Create a PowerPoint presentation to communicate simulated results of a program evaluation to stakeholders.

The ultimate goal of program evaluation is to provide the basis for making decisions within a system analysis of planned change. Data must be aggregated into a meaningful whole, the data must be interpreted, and the data must be presented in some meaningful fashion.

SHOW LESS

Evaluation reports can take many forms and be distributed to a wide array of audiences. When preparing a report of an evaluation, the evaluator must consider both the format of the report and the intended audience of the report. When possible, the evaluator should involve audiences in determining the type of information to include in the report and the mode of delivery (Fitzpatrick, Sanders, & Worthen, 2011).

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

Competency 1: Design a program evaluation.

Describe efforts to mitigate difficulties and limitations of an evaluation approach.

Competency 3: Communicate research and evaluation results in appropriate and effective formats.

Describe methods in enough detail that other evaluators would able to replicate them.

Present the key findings of an evaluation in a clear and impactful manner.

Make specific recommendations based on interpretation of findings.

Competency 4: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the psychological professions.

Employ appropriate written and visual communication to convey content to an intended audience.

Comply with APA guidelines for style and formatting.

For the final course assessment, you will imagine that you have successfully implemented the program evaluation you designed and will create a PowerPoint presentation to communicate the key findings of your evaluation results to its stakeholders.

SHOW LESS

Within your presentation, you will describe difficulties you encountered and strategies to resolve them. These could include technical factors and issues due to interpersonal dynamics. Interpersonal relations can play a major role in program evaluation by improving the quality of our productive and creative efforts. Managing conflict and pragmatic issues constructively can be a decisive factor. What kinds of personal competencies and environmental conditions are conducive to the development and maintenance of good relationships? The evaluator has the responsibility to ensure he or she has done everything possible to maintain productive relationships with the involved parties.

As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.

SHOW LESS

What sorts of difficulties may be common in program evaluations?

What kinds of personal competencies and environmental conditions are conducive to the development and maintenance of good relationships?

What are the limitations of different evaluation approaches?

What examples have you seen where information was presented in a clear and impactful way? Examples of information graphics or perhaps advertising might be helpful.

For this assessment, complete the following:

Create a PowerPoint document. Do not submit a paper for this assessment. Papers will not be graded.

Since you have not actually implemented your program evaluation design, you will need to simulate results that are fictional, but they must be plausible.

Note: It must be understood that in an actual program evaluation it would be highly unethical to represent “made up” results as actual data. However, it is ethical to simulate results in this way for this learning exercise.

Enter supporting details in the Notes section for each slide.

Use APA-style inline citations, and include a References slide at the end of the presentation.

You may wish to enhance the design of the presentation to make it more effective. Refer to the Resources for help with enhancements.

For guidance in the basics of using PowerPoint, refer to the Resources.

discuss Carl`s post

  Highlight the relevant information from the patient’s history you will use to inform your conceptualization of the patient’s problems and diagnosis. Mr. Smith has Anxiety about his future. He is guarded when talking about his family and childhood, he was diagnosed with adjustment disorder with anxiety. Mr. Smith is an only child and had limited contact with his father due to his fathers job and remained with his mother essentially most of the time. Mr. Smith’s mother worked at his elementary school and latter transferred to his high school once he transitioned to high school. Mr. Smiths father died a year ago and he has been avoiding his mother since she moved to San Diego, California. Mr. Smith does not speak much about his mother, she had anger issues when he was growing up and made robust outbursts. Mr. Smith is originally from Canada, does well socially and worked as a psychology technician for 14 years. Mr. Smith quit his job as a psychology technician because he became bored with it and has not been to work in a few weeks. He drinks socially, is a part of a college fraternity but has recently lost a lot of weight and continues to be suspicious and closed off to his friends.
Provide an evaluation of the patient’s symptoms and presenting problems within the context of a theoretical orientation that seems to be most appropriate for the situation. Be sure to indicate which theory you are using for your evaluation and provide a justification for your choice. To get the most out of this assignment, you are encouraged to use the same theoretical orientation from which you chose to write your Week Two Initial Assessment discussion’s guided response. Mr. Smith’s symptoms appear to be that he tells his doctor that all is well for the most part but he lives quite a different story. He is anxious about his future, he has lost a lot of weight and he has adjustment disorder. The doctor used a Humanistic theoretical orientation by talking to Mr. Smith and by going against the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Ethics by hiring a private investigator to find out about Mr. Smith’s mother. The reason that I will continue using the Humanistic theoretical orientation is because I believe it is important for me to talk to Mr. Smith to get him to speak about his Mother and his childhood. This area appears to be an area that Mr. Smith is not sharing with the Doctor and his friends. It appears that Mr. Smith shields himself from having to discuss his childhood or his mother. Mr. Smith appears to avoid his mother as well.
Provide a diagnosis for the patient based on one of the diagnostic manuals available (e.g.,DSM-5,Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, etc.). Justify your choice of this diagnostic manual. According to the DSM 5, I believe that Mr. Smith is suffering from Anxiety Disorder due to another Medical Condition (First, M.B., 2013). I believe the mental disorder’s that Mr. Smith is suffering from is a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as Adjustment Disorder. The reason that I believe that Mr. Smith is suffering from PTSD is because people who suffer from PTSD avoid people and things that remind them of the situation that led to their PTSD. Mr. Smith appears to be avoiding his mother. Mr. Smith’s mother may not have been the person who caused him to have PTSD but she could remind him of the person. I believe that Mr. Smith has adjustment disorder but it is associated with the presence of his mother.
Describe at least one evidence-based and one non-evidence-based treatment option for this diagnosis. Compare the benefits and costs of these treatment options. One evidence-based treatment for PTSD is Written Exposure Therapy (WET) (AUSTERN, D., 2017). This treatment requires a person to write out their issues as well as situations that they believe will assist them in their crisis. I believe that this is a good method to use in order to assist a person suffering from PTSD related issues. The primary non-evidence based treatment option for PTSD is dialogue. Talking to other people in similar situations tends to assist people who are suffering from PTSD. The benefits and cost of dialogue is minimal. The cost of WET is minimal as well.
Based on specific theoretical and historical perspectives, provide questions for your colleagues seeking their thoughts and feedback. How would you approach a situation where a gentleman avoids his mother in adulthood? What would cause a person to act one way around their friends and describe a different way of life to their doctor? Pose appropriate questions that may help refine the diagnostic impression of this patient. Does verbal abuse cause PTSD? What mental condition causes avoidance? V/R
