The Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper is a significant project for this course. To stay on track, this assignment asks you to create an outline. Please review the Course Project in Unit VII, titled Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper. An outline is a great way to organize the ideas that you want to communicate within a paper, or any form of writing. Your unit IV Outline supports the Unit VII Code of Ethics and Evaluation Course Project. The Unit IV Outline is simply an outline to the full Code of Ethics paper you will submit in Unit VII. You are required to make sure your unit IV outline and your unit VII course project are in alignment. It would be in your best interest to make steady progress in every unit towards completing the Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper.
For your outline, include the following:
- Identify the topic at least five main ideas. The topic main ideas of your paper is are important. Try to sum up the point of your paper in one sentence or phrase as the first main idea that is original and topic focused, well developed, and thought provoking. This will help your paper stay focused on the main point.
- Read the instructions for the Unit VII Code of Ethics and Evaluation paper assignment, pay particular attention to the 10 points for the code of ethics and five points for the evaluation section that must be addressed. Identify the main categories for your outline. What main points will you cover? The introduction usually introduces all of your main points, should flow logically, and is effectively linked to the main topic. Then the rest of paper can be spent developing those points.
- Create the first category. What is the first point you want to cover? If the paper centers on a complicated term, a definition is often a good place to start. For a paper about a particular theory, giving the general background on the theory can be a good place to begin.
- Create subcategories. After you have the main point, create points under it that provide support for the main point. The number of subcategories that you use depends on the amount of information you are going to cover; there is no right or wrong number to use as long as each point is compelling or persuasive in support of the main category. Keep in mind there are 15 content areas to the course project.
By convention, each category consists of a minimum of two entries. If your first category is Roman numeral I, your outline must also have a category labeled Roman numeral II; if you have a capital letter A under category I, you must also have a capital letter B. Whether you then go on to have capital letters C, D, E, is up to you, depending on the amount of material you are going to cover. You are required to have a minimum of two of each numbered or lettered categories. You are required to have a minimum of two of each numbered or lettered subcategories to support each main category.
This assignment also allows you to work with your professor, who can offer guidance and direction to help you successfully complete the Code of Ethics and Evaluation Paper. The deliverable minimum length for this outline is 300 words, double spaced, 12pt New Times Roman font.
Use your own words and prepare your outline in a word-processing application (i.e., Word). Submit it as one of the following file formats: DOC, DOCX, or PDF.
