To receive the credit you must complete the competency assessment. You may contact your professor if you have any questions.
This competency assessment (CA) assesses your level of performance on the specific Outcome(s) that are the focus of this module. The CA requires you to demonstrate your knowledge, understanding, and proficiency of the Outcome(s). Be sure to use the other activities in this module prior to attempting the CA. You may attempt the CA multiple times within the term. However, the CA must be completed successfully by the end of the term to earn credit. Refer to your Syllabus for additional information regarding the number of attempts permitted.
Be sure to review the Competency Assessment Rubric to understand the criteria on which you will be evaluated.
Instructors will provide feedback on the CA. If you expect to receive feedback, revise, and resubmit this CA near the end of the term, be sure to follow the guidelines and deadlines for submission in your Syllabus.
Please refer to your Syllabus for additional competency assessment requirements.
This competency assessment assesses the following Outcome(s):
CM220M5-1: Develop strategies for effective problem solving using digital media.
Assessment objective: Think of the power of some commercials to get us to think about buying a new product, voting for a particular candidate, or contributing to a cause. Many of these commercials combine words, images, and sound in ways that appeal to our senses and emotions in a way that words alone may not be able to do. For this competency assessment, you will use technology, writing, and research skills to create a digital media presentation that combines text and images, and perhaps sound, to make an argument for change that can appeal to an audience, much like a powerful advertisement or public service announcement.
Identify a problem you want to solve in your community or workplace that would be researchable. You may want to propose that your workplace choose a new health care plan, advocate the need to put speed bumps in your neighborhood or argue for a ban on plastic shopping bags in your city. It is recommended that you use the same topic you used in earlier modules since you have already created a thesis and found sources to support your claims.
Your digital media presentation should use the design suggestions provided in the Writing resource Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations. More importantly, you are practicing your composition skills by combining text and images to compel your audience to recognize the importance of your argument.
Minimum Submission Requirements
The digital media presentation should have the following characteristics:
- Slide presentation format (PowerPoint, Google Slides, etc.)
- Title page/slide with the presentation title, your name, and course information
- Contains at least 8–10 slides, not counting the title and references slides
- Uses research from at least four sources, which should include at least 2 graphics with information
- Minimally, four visuals (e.g., photo, table, diagram, chart, infographic, etc.)
- Research and visuals are cited in APA citation format, both in text and on a references slide or separate Word document. You need to quote material taken directly from a source. The same standards apply to a presentation that apply to an essay.
- A clear message related to an argument for change in your community or workplace
- Follows the criteria covered in “Designing an Effective Presentation” section of Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations.
If the work submitted for this competency assessment does not meet the minimum submission requirements, it will be returned for revision. If the work submitted does not meet the minimum submission requirements by the end of the term, you will receive a failing score.
