Question Description

I need help with a Psychology question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

In education, student diversity has a significant influence on the selection of teaching strategies. Clearly understanding your students' needs is the first step to ensuring you develop instruction that will effectively meet those needs. Students' needs are determined by multiple variables ranging from cognitive abilities to cultural and socioeconomic factors.

For this assignment you will conduct a needs assessment and describe a group of students in relation to a learning goal you would like to them achieve. Ideally, these are students you have access to in your practicum setting.

First, determine a learning goal for your group of students. This can range from a specific nursing skill to broader theoretical knowledge.

Next, research needs assessment tools and use or develop one tool appropriate for the students in your practicum setting. There are a variety of needs assessment tools from which to choose, and an appropriate one should provide a way to measure the current knowledge base of the students. The tool should also help you identify student characteristics, such as student learning preferences and needs and access to technology and resources.

You will administer the tool, collect your feedback, analyze the results, and report your findings. Include the following in a report of 1,000-1,250 words:

  • Identify the needs assessment tool and explain how it is appropriate for the students in your setting
  • Summarize the general, shared characteristics of your students.
  • Discuss the specific characteristics that distinguish your students from one another.
  • Discuss how your students' similarities and differences would impact your approach to facilitating learning for this diverse group.
  • Discuss potential methods for evaluating whether or not your approach is working for each of your students.

Student Diversity (Outline)
I.
-

Introduction
In a diverse classroom, the educator needs to understand each student's needs and create
instruction that effectively meets the needs of every student

-

This paper will describe the needs of a group of students concerning their communication
skills, based on needs assessment conducted on the students.

II.
-

The Needs Assessment Tool
The needs assessment tool used to assess the students' needs was a self-report
questionnaire.

III.
-

Shared Characteristics of the Students
All the students agreed on the importance of communication in all nursing areas,
including treatment, prevention, health promotion, education, and rehabilitation.

-

Most of the students were "approximately good" and "good" in the part of treatment
communication skills and "good" or "very good" in the part of clinical communication
skills.

IV.
-

Specific Characteristics That Distinguish the Students from One Another
Even though 25 of the 30 students assessed reported "good" and "very good"
communication skills in both treatment and clinical communication skills, there are
students who reported poor communication skills generally.

-

From the needs assessment, over 15 of the students requires improvement in both their
treatment communication and clinical communication skills.

-

Another notable finding of the assessment is that the majority of the students had
problems when it came to communicating with physicians.

V.

How the Students' Differences and Similarities Would Affect the Approach to
Facilitating Learning for the Diverse Group

-

Each student's needs will define the appropriate approach to facilitating learning, and
hence, generally, the students' differences and similarities will influence the approach that
the educator will utilize for this group of diverse students.

-

To meet each student's needs, the instruction will need to be differentiated in many ways,
like customizing instructional methods, adjusting the assignments or the learning tools, or
tailoring the content to meet each student's communication skills and abilities

-

To evaluate whether an approach is working on each student or not, the instructor should
use self-report questionn...
