JADM 430 DeVry Week 3 Assignment You Decide
You will be completing a You Decide assignment this week. Consult the You Decide tab under Week 3 for assignment instructions. You will submit your work to the Week 3 You Decide Dropbox.
The state legislature recently approved a prison expansion bill that calls for increased staffing for all levels of prison facilities within the state. The greatest allocation of funding is to go toward hiring additional correctional officers for the maximum-security prison where you are employed as a senior administrator. The promotional process is nearly completed, and you have been handed assessments on the final three candidates for the position. This was a difficult process, as there were many eligible candidates who applied. Nonetheless, the committee responsible for the preliminary interviews has narrowed the field and has now submitted its recommendations.
This promotional opportunity is in response to a state funding decision to increase staffing by 15% at your prison, a decision that mandates the hiring of 50 new correctional officers within the next budget fiscal year. As an upper level administrator responsible for the final decision on this promotional opportunity, you are tasked with the responsibility of selecting one of three final candidates for the position of first line supervisor. Under other circumstances, the decision to promote a senior correctional officer to a position of first line supervisor would require less consideration, because the new supervisor would be working with veteran officers. However, under these circumstances, the newly appointed supervisor will be as much a mentor as a supervisor to the newly hired correctional officers, many of whom will have little or no experience working with inmates in a maximum-security facility. What characteristics will you look for in the candidate of your choice? And because the warden will review your final decision, make sure to explain why each of the other two candidates was not selected.

Identify Course Project topic.
Locate three sources of interest.
Develop a complete outline to include topics and subtopics.
Complete your literature search.
Develop a complete draft of your paper by Week 4.
Submit your Final Paper on or before the due date.
The following are best practices in preparing this paper.
Cover Page: Include whom you prepared the paper for, who prepared it, and the date.
Table of Contents: List the main ideas and sections of the paper and the pages where they are located. Illustrations should be included separately.
Introduction: Use a header on your paper. This will indicate that you are introducing the paper.
The purpose of an introduction or opening is to
introduce the subject and explain why the subject is important;
preview the main ideas and the order in which they will be covered; and
establish the tone of the document.
Include in the introduction a reason for the audience to read the paper. Also, include an overview of what you will cover and the importance of the material. (This should include or introduce the questions you are asked to answer in each assignment.)
Body of the Report: Use a header with the name of the project. An example is, "The Development of Hotel X: A World Class Resort." Proceed to break out the main ideas: State the main ideas, state the major points of each idea, and provide evidence. Show some type of division, such as separate, labeled sections; separate groups of paragraphs; or headers. Include the information you found during your research and investigation.
Summary and Conclusion: Summarizing is similar to paraphrasing but presents the gist of the material in fewer words than the original. An effective summary identifies the main ideas and the major support points from the body of the report; minor details are left out. Summarize the benefits of the ideas and how they affect the subject.
Work Cited: Use the citation format specified in the Syllabus.
Additional hints on preparing the best possible project follow.
Apply a three-step process to writing: plan, write, and complete.
Prepare an outline of the research paper before going forward.
Complete a first draft and then go back to edit, evaluate, and make any changes required.
Use visual communication to further clarify and support the written part of the report. Examples include graphs, diagrams, photographs, flowcharts, maps, drawings, animation, video clips, pictograms, tables, and Gantt charts.
Begin the topic selection process and your literature search on Day 1.
Contact your instructor if you have any questions as to the appropriateness of your topic.
Follow APA guidelines closely.
If you are not familiar with APA guidelines, several publications are available for purchase and information is also available online, as well as in the Syllabus.
Turn in your written assignments before the deadline.
