Observation plan | English homework help


“According to child development specialists, one of the most accurate ways to learn about children is to observe them in daily activities” (Wortham, 2012, p. 117).  Among the many types of observation discussed in Chapter 5, anecdotal records, running records, time sampling, and event sampling are widely used in schools and centers across the nation.  For this discussion, you will begin to develop a plan for the observation types you will use in your written assignment this week, which involves the observation of an actual child.  Here is what you are asked to do:


  1. Choose either anecdotal or running records.  Describe the record type and explain its characteristics.  Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development, or language development (choose one), and what the purposes are for assessing that domain.
  2. Next, choose either time sampling or event sampling.  Describe the sampling method and tell what its characteristics are. Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development or language development (choose one that is a different domain from above) and what the purposes are for assessing that domain. 


Attached is an example of the anecdotal and running record as well as the time and event sampling.


Here is a video to assist you with this discussion this, all about the observation process:

    Addressing Key Human Resource Functions
    Part 1
    Training staff is important for employers as training focuses on current job requirements. Employers’ responsibilities around staff development arguably are not as obvious since development focuses on enhancing skills required for future jobs.
    Respond to the following questions in relation to staff development:

    • Do you think employers should invest in staff development? Why or why not?
    • In what ways can decisions about staff development affect a public health organization’s staffing plan?
    • What strategies would you recommend to balance the benefits of staff development with budgetary constraints?
    • Part 2
      Fair and adequate compensation is critical for attracting the most qualified employees and retaining and motivating staff. When determining compensation, consideration should be given to fair and equitable compensation among all workers in the same company (internal equity) and fair and equitable compensation relative to the external market (external equity).
      Consider the following scenario:
      You have two medical assistants (MAs) who earn $15 per hour at your medical practice. When you hire a new MA, you discover that the current market pays $16 per hour for medical assistants.
      Respond to the following discussion points in relation to equity conflicts and compensation:
    • State what you would offer the new MA and provide your reasons.
    • Discuss the implications of your decisions on internal and external equity.
    • Evaluate the changes, if any, you would make in the compensation of your current MAs.
    • Recommend strategies for resolving similar equity conflicts with compensation.
    • Performance evaluations can be stressful for both employers and employees. Nevertheless, performance appraisals have a number of benefits for both employers and staff.
      Respond to the following questions in relation to performance evaluation:
    • In what ways do performance evaluations benefit employers?
    • In what ways do performance evaluations benefit employees?
    • HR departments play an essential role in developing an agency’s staffing strategy and handling employee-centered activities of an organization. The presence of an HR department, however, does not absolve individual managers within the agency of human resources responsibilities.
      Respond to the following questions in relation to HR issues:
    • What role, if any, do managers have in addressing HR issues or concerns?
    • How does this differ from the role of the HR department staff?
