Capstone Project 2nd Rough Draft

Based on the feedback you have received on your introduction paragraph, begin writing a 3–4-page rough draft of the body paragraphs of your research paper, which should have a clear focus, problems and solutions, and reliable/scholarly sources as support. You should have a good supply of research notes to bring into each of your arguments. Be sure your rough draft includes the following:

  • An introduction that has been revised based on prior feedback
  • Body paragraphs organized around focused analysis and supporting evidence for each of the key points that you are researching
  • In-text citations and a reference page to document the sources being used

Under Additional Materials I put in Instructor feedback and 1st Part of the Paper you originally   wrote. This is just an addition to the Capstone  project that you have started. Below is the Template in which paper should be written

Here is instructor feedback:

 

This is a good job on identifying a criminal justice topic to study for the remainder of this course. You will use the exact same topic in assignments 3 and 4 (a PowerPoint) and 5. Below are recommendations that should be applied to your IP3 paper.  Here are your next steps:

  1. For your Unit 3 paper, correct ALL of the identified errors in the IP1 paper. The errors will be listed in the grade book and/or they will be emailed to you.
  2. Add an introductory paragraph and a conclusion paragraph into your IP3 paper. Here is a sneak preview of your IP3 instructions: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H8aYQ66iysFXqsAAypgeMlukePlW2FYN/view?usp=sharing
  3. When you are finished editing your IP1 paper, then re-upload it as your IP3 paper.

Below are administrative recommendations that should be applied to your final IP3 paper. Keep up the good work.

THESIS: The thesis should tell the reader what the problem is – it should tell the reader that there is a problem. What is the problem that needs to be solved? Is there a problem? What needs to be fixed? The problem should have some specificity. Please visit the following website to get some general ideas on how to formulate a fully developed and robust thesis statement: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y21-5_MvOO9p-tfwn_fCDrHiAw7uNX5y/view?usp=sharing     (3 points)

ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY INDENTING:  The annotated bibliography needs to be formatted or indented in a specific way. It has minor errors. You can see samples at this website: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0QmECZPnLPhNVBxMDRkbHY3Tmc/view?usp=sharing&resourcekey=0-V7YWI3lw-_YAVswwFaJSaA  (2 points).

ETHICAL STANDARDS SECTION:   Regarding the ethics section of your paper, do you need approval from a university Institutional Review Board (IRB) before you conduct your academic research? Yes or no? Why or why not?  Here is a website that explains ethical considerations:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZUt_d_kTBd0C9DraTQUg1g9RMslMHmyZ/view?usp=sharing  (3 points)

ROBUST REFERENCES: The annotated bibliography in IP1 and IP3 required at least five sources. Subsequently, there should be at least five references at the end of the paper for IP1, IP3 and IP5. There are not. (2 points)

General overview comments:  This project is designed to culminate in the selection of a final topic that is to be explored in assignments IP1, IP3 and IP5 in the near future. In electing a topic that is worthy to be studied, problematic issues in the public sector and/or the private sector should be considered. Your chosen topic is designed to have a thesis statement to identify the problem or the issue that you will study. It subsequently should include a study of a hypothetical situation (and a hypothesis) to determine possible outcomes to proposed theories. There should also be a quantitative or qualitative discussion of “measurements and analysis,” to include applicable resources (also known as an annotated bibliography). Lastly, ethical standards should be reviewed, to include a discussion of Institutional Review Board (IRB) requirements.

    • Competency 1: Evaluate the parameters for ethical decision making in 21st century multicultural business environments.
      • Describe an ethical issue that can be resolved by an organizational policy.
      • Evaluate why an organizational policy would be needed to resolve an ethical issue.
      • Examine the current relevance of an ethical issue.
      • Evaluate the importance of resolving an ethical issue.
    • Competency Map
      CHECK YOUR PROGRESSUse this online tool to track your performance and progress through your course.
  • Toggle DrawerContextThe word ethics usually evokes a strong emotional reaction or opinion from most people. Having a keen eye and observing reactions (yours as well as others’) in a nonjudgmental manner will serve you best as you pursue the objectives of this course.
    SHOW LESSBusiness ethics can be a gray area. As conditions and environments change, people’s behaviors change. The regulations intended to create fair standards in the world of business also subsequently change. Examining the hard-to-define parameters of ethics should help us to develop our perceptiveness and skills in analyzing the best solutions to ethical dilemmas.
    There are a range of models for ethical decision making and analysis of ethical dilemmas. Different prevailing theories underlay the reasoning approaches to ethical issues and challenges. No one approach is considered best for all situations. However, by knowing these approaches, and applying them to different ethical problems, you can become a valuable participant in creating ethical solutions.
  • Toggle DrawerQuestions to ConsiderTo deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.
    • Based on your experience, which of the following dimensions do you think has influenced the biggest changes in business ethics over the last decade?
      • Individually unethical persons.
      • More complex situations without sufficient guidelines.
      • Inadequate laws.
      • Unreasonable organizational goals.
    • Consider the number of crisis situations you have experienced. Reflect on the crisis response process, and whether all stakeholders were well served in a fair and ethical manner. Analyze whether it was the best response for all stakeholders involved.
    • Based on your experience, do you think regulations work to maintain an ethical environment, or do you think people are the central drivers of creating ethical cultures? Consider whether the implementation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (often referred to as SOX) supports ethical behavior. You are encouraged to review Title III of SOX. Do you think SOX worked for financial institutions in the recent financial crisis? You might also refer to the “CEO and CFO Rules” section of Chapter 1, “The Sarbanes-Oxley Act: How We Got Here, and What It Means,” from the The Complete Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley e-book.

  • Assessment Instructions;
  • A person cannot evaluate the ethicality of organizational policies until he or she identifies the issues that those policies are intended to address. In this assessment, you will do just that.
    Complete the following:

    • Identify a potential ethical dilemma from a real-world organization. As an example of an ethical dilemma, consider the following scenario: an organization may choose to videotape the office and read employee e-mails. The conflict here may be that employees feel these practices are a violation of their privacy, and that they have a right to a certain level of privacy. However, organizational stakeholders defend these practices because their concern is whether the employees are getting their work done.
      • Choose any organization about which you can find sufficient information to complete the assessment. For example, you might use the organization for which you currently work, where you used to work, or where an associate of yours works.
      • If there is any concern with disclosing confidential information, substitute a made-up name for the organization’s name and indicate you are doing so.
      • The ethical issue or problem selected must affect the organization, potentially affect the organization, or involve the organization.
    • Explain the issues involved, including the following:
      • Identify the stakeholders.
      • Identify the concerns of the stakeholders.
    • Explain why you chose this particular issue and why the issue is important.
    • Examine the current relevance of the issue.
      • Is the issue currently in the media spotlight?
      • Are there any recent incidents or reasons why this issue has come to the public’s attention?
