assess the quality of simulations

Text book:-

Chapter 3 discusses methods to assess the quality of simulations. You learned about three different views of simulation quality.

Suppose you lead a task force that is developing a simulation to provide strategic planning recommendations for property use zoning for a county of 750,000 residents. The zoning board and county commissioners want a simulation that allows them to assess the impact of various zoning decisions based on a variety of dynamic factors, including age, race, education, and income status. Which of the three views discussed would provide the best quality assessment for this type of simulation? How would you ensure the highest level of accuracy with you simulation, and how would you go about determining accuracy?

You must do the following:

1) As indicated above, identify which of the three views discussed in the chapter that would provide the best quality assessment for the situation described above, and explain your decision. How would you ensure the highest level of accuracy with your simulation, and how would you go about determining accuracy?

Members of the U.S. Intelligence community

Visit the website of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (Links to an external site.) to identify the Members of the U.S. Intelligence community. Select two agencies for further research (only one may be from the Department of Defense). Summarize the role and area of responsibility as part of the U.S. Intelligence community. Explain the primary types of intelligence these agencies gather and how the intelligence is used. Explain how these agencies work together and support each other in counter-terrorism operations. In your own words, describe what you think these agencies do well and what methods they can improve.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s), scholarly resources, and or official government sources. Properly cite any references used in your post.

Intelligence Collection Disciplines

Intelligence Collection Disciplines. In preparation for this discussion forum review The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (Links to an external site.) web page as it lays out all the agencies considered part of the Intelligence Community and has links to each agency. Then review the FBI – Director of Intelligence  (Links to an external site.)webpage that lays out the Intelligence Collection Disciplines.

Briefly describe two of the different types of intelligence, which agencies have this capability and how the intelligence can be used to support homeland security efforts. Explain which type of intelligence identified on the FBI list that you think is most important to counterterrorism operations and why.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s), scholarly resources, and or official government sources.

Intersession 3 Case Analysis: Walmart

Intersession 3 Case Analysis: Walmart

Write a brief assessment of the Walmart case found in the text (Case 6). Address three questions based on Walmart’s business level strategy:

What drivers of cost advantage make Walmart such a successful organization in the world of low-cost leadership?

What types of problems evolve when low-cost leadership becomes the sole focus of organizations?

Foundations of Effective Group Work

In the Unit 4 assignment, you convinced your principal that you are capable of leading an effective group. Now, imagine you are going to prepare to lead a counseling or psycho-educational group at your school site to improve academic outcomes.

If you will not be working in a school setting, please modify the instructions and make them applicable to your site. For example, if you would be in a community setting, you would present this to your supervisor instead of a principal. The core concepts should be the same.

For this assignment, state what grade level you will work with and explain the target population. Research the foundations of effective group work. Next, analyze what outcomes you would like to see and how you plan to achieve them by reviewing relevant scholarly sources. Your analysis should address the following points:

  • Describe at least two theoretical foundations for group counseling and how you will operate from one orientation. Consider how this will be an effective framework when working in the school setting. (1–2 pages).
    • Assess your own theoretical orientation for group work, including an examination of how the theory will benefit group counseling and group work.
  • Consider different dynamics that may be associated with the group process and group development. Explain the initial, transition, working, and final stages of groups and what you might expect considering the grades you are working with. Synthesize approximately four concepts that may include, but are not limited to, trust, goals, resistance, fears, and self-disclosure. These are examples; it is up to you to decide which issues you would like to consider when thinking about possible group dynamics for this group. (1–4 pages.)
  • Consider some ethical dilemmas and how you might apply our ethical standards, and demonstrate your synthesis of the standards and how you might apply them in a group setting. For example, you might address concerns around confidentiality in the school setting. Demonstrate your preparedness by addressing approximately three possible ethical dilemmas. References should be made to ACA, ASGW, or ASCA ethical standards in your review. (1–3 pages.)
  • Describe your approach to forming the group, including how you will recruit, screen, and select members. Consider whom you might contact and how you will go about the process at your school site. (1–2 pages.)
  • Describe your proposed intervention and how it may improve academic outcomes. Integrate how you might measure the effects of the group. For example, perhaps, you targeted working with students who were failing one course. You would state that your goals would be to have the students reengage in their academic achievement, demonstrated by earning at least a C the following quarter. (1–2 pages.)
