Stakeholder Presentation

When completing an action research project, it is common to provide your organizational stakeholders with a brief audiovisual presentation that highlights your more extensive report. So, in Unit 9, you will submit a 5–8 minute Action Research Project Presentation as part of your final project assignment.

For this discussion, create an initial version of your Action Research Project Presentation to exchange with your peers for review and feedback. Examine the requirements for the presentation from the Unit 9 assignment, as they will direct your efforts for creating your initial version of this presentation. Use PowerPoint (or similar software) for the presentation slides and Kaltura (or similar software) to record your voice as you present the slides.

Refer to the Presentation Preparation Guidelines in the Unit 9 Assignment Preparation study for guidance on how to develop your presentation. Consult the activity Resources for helpful links with information regarding creating effective PowerPoint presentations and using Kaltura. Also, review the Riverbend City: Action Research Reflection and Stakeholder Presentation multimedia presentation for guidance on what your presentation should entail.

Posting Instructions

  • Write a transcript of your presentation to ensure accessibility for everyone.
    • Closed captioning is automatically generated within one day after you upload a recording in Kaltura, but the captions alone are not sufficient for this presentation.
    • Include the transcript of your presentation as an attachment to this activity.
  • Post the link to your presentation in the body of your initial discussion post.
  • Include a note directing your peers to the presentation link. This can be as simple as, “Please view my presentation.”
  • Name your discussion using the course number, discussion number, and your name, as follows:
    • HMSV8110 u08d1 John Smith.

Post the link and note for your presentation in this discussion and attach your transcript.

Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services (linked in the Resources) to request accommodations.

Response Guidelines

View and comment on the presentations of at least two of your peers. Share helpful feedback with them regarding their presentations.

Use this opportunity to receive peer feedback to improve your own final project presentation. Incorporate the feedback, as appropriate, into the final version of your presentation for the Unit 9 assignment.

Learning Components

This activity will help you achieve the following learning components:

  • Summarize highlights of a completed research study.
  • Describe how a chosen issue relates to the population served.
  • Describe how a chosen issue relates to human services.
  • Describe how to assess strategies for addressing a chosen human services issue.
  • Create an audiovisual presentation for internal and external stakeholders that demonstrates how action research was utilized to address a chosen issue.

Organizing and Analyzing Data

This is the third assignment in your Action Research Project. Begin by reviewing the project description and the Unit 9 instructions for the final project assignment, focusing on the Results of Data Collection and Analysis section, in which you will present a revised version of your work in this assignment. Also, be sure to examine the Organizing and Analyzing Data Scoring Guide before you begin, in order to familiarize yourself with the requirements of this assignment.

Remember that in each course project assignment, you will update and include the content of your previous assignments, then add new content as assigned. So far, you have already created the Introduction, Background for the Study, and Description of the Research Context for the Study sections for your final project assignment. In this assignment, you will add the Results of Data Collection and Analysis section.

Assignment Instructions

For this assignment, copy the content from your Unit 2 and Unit 3 assignments into a new document. Make any updates to this content that may be called for, based on instructor feedback or other project developments. Then, create a new section, titled Results of Data Collection and Analysis.

For the Results of Data Collection and Analysis component of your Action Research Project, report on the results of your chosen study, addressing the points outlined below. First, address the research design approach, then compile and analyze the data and findings from your chosen study, and then organize and present the findings according to thematic classifications or a timeline. Be careful to focus on reporting the raw, factual data at this point, rather than on discussing your impressions. Do not offer broad statements or interpretations that extend beyond the research findings of the study.

Results of Data Collection and Analysis

Discuss the general approach (such as individual, collaborative, organizational, or community) to the research design that is used in your specified study.

  • Research studies are usually developed according to a specific research design, such as teacher research, experimental, case study, qualitative, quantitative, and so forth. Briefly identify the type of research design that was used in your chosen study.
  • There are several different types of approaches to research design, including individual, collaborative, organizational, and community approaches. Identify and describe the general approach to the research design used in your study, including the steps and processes by which the research design was implemented.
  • Explain how and why this type of approach to the research design may have been chosen. Why was this approach appropriate for the study?

Evaluate the types of data collected, the methods used, the organization of the data, and the major findings of your chosen study.

  • Identify the significant types of data that were collected.
  • Explain how the data was organized in the study.
  • Describe the exact methods of data collection that were used (for example, behavioral observation, interviewing, journaling, artifact collection, taking field notes, etcetera).
  • Evaluate the use of each data collection method within the context of this study. For each method of data collection, explain how the data was collected.
  • Exhibit the data in an appropriate format. If you use charts or graphs, be sure to apply APA style and formatting.
  • Discuss what tools were used to analyze the data.
  • Briefly analyze the major findings of the study to determine what was learned and discuss supporting examples. Identify trends and any gaps you see based on the data. Again, be careful not to offer broad statements or interpretations that extend beyond the results of this study.
    • Note: You will complete a thorough evaluation of the study in your next assignment. Here, your focus should be on the data.

Classify the raw data from your chosen study into data sets. Organize the findings by choosing one of the following two formats:

  1. Thematic/Grouping: Identify and interpret themes that exist in the data, such as differences that appear according to age, gender, and socioeconomic status; or by participant groups, such as single fathers, veterans with mental illness, or parents of toddlers. Group the data into those thematic categories, using the following format:
    • Create a subheading using your chosen theme as the title.
    • Provide a brief, general description that defines the theme.
    • Present examples that demonstrate the variety of response types that are represented in the data for the theme, such as actual quotes from responses, journals, field notes, artifacts, etcetera.
    • Display the data to support the statements you are making, so others may understand your groupings.
  2. Timeline: Organize the data according to a timeline of events, using one of the following styles:
    • Chronological (listing the events in the order they occurred).
    • Life history (addressing events according to relevant analytical points; this method best applies to a case study).
    • Composite (presenting findings in a composite picture, such as a hypothetical day in the life).
    • Critical events (grouping the data according to significant events that correspond to the themes in the data).
    • Portraiture (writing a narrative of the individuals or institutions studied).

Submission Requirements

Your assignment must meet the following requirements:

  • Written communication: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others, consistent with the expectations for members of the human services field. Write comprehensibly to support fundamental ideas, in APA format, using correct grammar and mechanics.
  • APA guidelines: Follow current APA guidelines for style and formatting, using a title page and references page, and citing your sources properly in the body of your paper with corresponding references on the references page.
  • Length: Write a minimum of 4 new pages for this assignment, for a running total of 12 pages (including the content from your previous assignments). This page total is not including the title page and references page. The content should be typed and double-spaced.
  • References: At least 9 references in total, including the 5 references from your previous assignments. Include peer-reviewed journals or other scholarly resources, assigned unit readings, and the
