Chapter 15, states, “Adult and continuing education have use the terms assessment and evaluation interchangeably”; however, assessment and evaluation are two separate concepts. According to Angelo, Cross-, and Moran assessment within the classroom, refers specifically to the collection of information to measure learning gains, which indicate learners’ individual levels of achievement; whereas; Queeney referred to assessment from a programmatic perspective as more comprehensive measurement of achievement of the program itself. Assessment refers to the collection of information, and it measures levels of achievement without comparisons to a set of standards, however, I feel assessment is a process used to improve a result. Some of the functions of assessment used in the assessment process is screening, phase like, and continually measure student levels of skill or knowledge. The screening process helps determine what area the learner is suited for and will help determine the learner’s weakness (if they need other assistance to help improve where they are). Baselines in the function process of the assessment are for evaluating and designing learning interventions, teaching method, program standards and policies, furthermore, assessment have various methodologies to select the method that would be most appropriate for their need. Although there are several definitions of evaluation, Stufflebeam and Shinkfield gives an extended definition of evaluation, it is the systematic assessment of an object’s merit, worth, probity, feasibility, safety, significance, and/or equity. Therefore, my thoughts on evaluations is measuring the performance to see if programs are funded; because of implementing the evaluation and based on the quality of the outcome, there is judgment, whether; the program is working effectively, good quality or bad quality the program is not working…...

Assessment and Text Evaluation in the Content Area Classroom

...Assessment and Text Evaluation in the Content Area Classroom My content area text book that I chose was an Algebra 1 textbook. Algebra 1 is usually taken in either the 8th or 9th grade. To get estimated grade level I used Fry's Readability Formula. To get this estimation, I randomly selected three passages from the textbook of one hundred words each. For each section of one hundred words, I counted the number of sentences and the number of syllables. For the first one hundred word sample, the number of sentences was roughly 4.9 with 180 syllables, the second sample was roughly 3 sentences with 131 syllables, and the last sample was roughly 5.3 sentences with 156 syllables. This averages out to roughly 4.4 sentences with 155.67 syllables. According to the Fry's Readability Formula, this textbook was estimated to be between the 10th and 11th grade reading level, which is a little bit higher than it should be. After determining the reading level of the Algebra 1 textbook, I then took another passage, from the same textbook, and performed a cloze procedure. To do this, I took another random one hundred word sample and deleted a random word from the second sentence and from there after deleted every five words. The test was then given to two different students. Here is the cloze test I created: Cloze Test: The process of designing an experiment begins with determining what type of data is needed and how it should be obtained.

Assessment

...between summative and formative assessments Formative assessment gives feedback and information during the instructional process- during the learning that occurs. This type of assessment measures the learner's progress and also that of the instructor. The main focus of formative assessment is to identify areas that need help or improvement. These check the learning progress and the effectiveness of the teaching methods and activities. Types of formative assessments include observations, homework exercises, question and answer sessions, and student. Formative assessment occurs during a course or programme of study which the teacher implements. It is often informal. This shows effective learning and the need for modifications. Formative assessment is assessment for learning. Uses for formative assessment: •facilitates learning •determine whether learning has occurred •provide feedback on learners' progression, signs for improvement •diagnose needs/barriers of learning and changes needed to change the course/programme •current strategies and methods can be adapted and accommodating •monitors the learning process Summative assessment occurs after learning and provides information and feedback that summarises and concludes the teaching and learning process.

Evaluation

...Introduction The independent evaluation unit of United Nations Development Program (UNDP) conducts county evaluations called Assessment of Development Results (ADRs). This evaluation aims to demonstrate UNDP’s contribution to development results at country level, as well as the effectiveness of UNDP’s strategy in coordinating national effort for achieving development results. Assessment of development results is carried out within general provisions of UNDP Evaluation Policy and conducted jointly with the national government due to principle of national ownership. The main goals of ADR’s are to provide support to UNDP accountability and transparency to the all level of stakeholders and partners in the program country; to assure the quality of UNDP interventions at the country level; and contribute to learning at corporate, regional and country level. In geographical terms, the assessment covers programs and interventions that had impact on the entire national territory or in parts of the territory, such as states or groups of states, and municipalities. The ADR’s is not a sum of project evaluations, but macro-analysis of the relationship between the inputs, the products, and especially the outcomes. The projects and programs targeted at a particular outcome are analyzed in an integrated manner. This study compares four different assessments of development results at country level, which evaluate the UNDP’s strategy, performance and its contribution to development......

The film's story portrayed the takeover of an American car plant by a Japanese corporation. While it might seem like just another fun movie to watch on a Friday night, it is actually a great movie with great lesson to teach to those who underestimate the power of training. Training is defined as the systematic acquisition of skills, rules, concepts, or attitudes that result in improved performance in another environment (Goldstein 1). The above movie is great example of how training can lead to much better results and performance. Irwin Goldstein, a leader in the training field, teams up with Kevin Ford and wrote "Training in Organization” to provide readers with a framework for examining and establishing viable training programs in education, business, and government. Capturing the excitement of training research and systems issues, the author discusses training as it occurs in real organizations. In their book they present different types of training programs and their effectiveness, ways in which training needs to be assessed and evaluated.

Evaluation

...provide verbal consent for their participation and evaluation. This in itself may be questionable as to whether or not it is appropriate, or ethically appropriate. The reason for that is because those with Alzheimer’s do not truly understand what exactly is going on, get confused very easily, and are very forgetful. Another aspect which may need to be taken into ethical consideration would be the fact that those who were participants were all white and British. The form of statistical analysis which was used throughout this study can be classified as inferential statistical analysis. Inferential statistical analyses are taken from a specific population. Like any other information which is obtained while conducting research, the data can help to form predictions. This study does show a link with Alzheimer’s disease and abnormal personalities. The participants with on-set Alzheimer’s disease had been less social and very insecure in their mannerism. Where “both cases and controls received informant ratings of premorbid personality” (Nicholas, Moran, Foy, Brown, Lovestone, Bryant, Boothby), there was “an association between abnormal personality traits and AD” (Nicholas, Moran, Foy, Brown, Lovestone, Bryant, Boothby). Just as the objective of this article was “to examine the association between premorbid personality traits, social networks and AD, using a case-control design, and two informant-based retrospective assessments of premorbid personality” (Nicholas,......

Spiritual Assessment Evaluation

...SPIRITUAL ASSESSMENT EVALUATION Spiritual Assessment Evaluation Steven Atilano Grand Canyon University August 18, 2012 Spiritual Assessment Evaluation Spirituality has been part of nursing from its’ infancy. Initially, nursing care of the sick, was provided by monks as part of a religious order. Florence Nightingale who is credited with revolutionizing modern nursing was said to have chose the profession, because God called her to serve (Nursing-Theory.org, n.d.). Nightingale was the first to revolutionize this thought process, as she realized that healing was holistic, and even involved the patient’s environment. As a result, our profession now recognizes the need to treat the patient holistically, to include the patient’s spirituality. Two examples of assessment tools that assess spirituality are the HOPE assessment tool and the FICA spiritual assessment tool. The HOPE assessment tool uses the acronym to remember all elements of the assessment. H stands for hope, O stands for the patient’s organized religion. P stands for personal spirituality, and E stands for end of life decisions (LaRocca-Pitts, 2009). The FICA spiritual tool acronym stands for Faith or belief, Importance of the patient’s spirituality, their individual spiritual community, and Addressing spirituality (Borneman, Ferrell, & Puchalski, 2010). The author believes that patient spirituality should be assessed immediately in order to ensure holistic care, so a new spiritual assessment......
