The graduate conducts a needs analysis in order to identify the unmet needs of learners.
A needs analysis considers the learning objectives and the challenges and resources required to meet the goals of learners. To begin this task, you will choose an instructional unit that you have previously used in your classroom that includes an evaluation of students’ prior knowledge and skills. You will then conduct a needs analysis using data you previously collected about the unit. Using your analysis, you will then determine priority areas of educational needs.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. The similarity report that is provided when you submit your task can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .docx, .pdf, .ppt).
