Unit 5 DB Improving Workload Management


American InterContinental University

Question Description

The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.

At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Friday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Friday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

Assignment Details:

Evidence-based practices (EBP) are becoming increasingly popular in the field of corrections as a method to ensure that offenders are receiving the treatment they need to help reduce recidivism.

For your Discussion Board this week, research 1–2 community corrections agencies that have implemented EBP, and respond to the following in 4-6 paragraphs :

  • When did they first implement EBP?
  • Have their recidivism rates changed since the implementation of EBP?
  • How has EBP impacted case manager or probation officer caseloads?
  • What impact do you think EBP has on case manager time management strategies and workload?

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.

For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.

Evidence-Based Practices



Evidence-Based Practices

Recidivism is the act of an offender repeating wrongdoing after being released from
prison. There are many strategies that have been implemented to help reduce recidivism rates.
One of this is the use of evidence-based practices. In the state of Michigan, the rate of recidivism
has dropped to an all-time low of 28.1% in 2018 (Gautz, 2018). This is a great improvement
from the year 1998 when it was at 45.7%. In the year 2014, it was 29%. Evidence-based
practices were introduced in the early 2000s. Large caseloads are known to limit the
effectiveness of caseload managers and probation officers. Evidence-based practices ...
