Syracuse University IDD&E Graduate Student Techniques in Education Evaluation Brief Summative Evaluation Plan

Introduction: The Noncommissioned Officer Leadership Center of Excellence (NCOLCoE), Sergeants Major Academy (SGM-A) is a yearlong service academy to prepare the Army’s senior enlisted leaders to thrive in challenging assignments throughout the joint force. The school consists of five departments: Command Leadership, Army Operations, Joint (includes interagency, international, and multinational) Operations, Professional studies, and Force Management. Each department has three major writing assignments.

Recently the SGM-A set out to restructure the International Military Students Pre-Course (IMSPC) to provide a Basic English writing instruction block that will prepare them to meet  their professional writing requirements. This pre-course serves as a refresher for those U.S. military students identified as academic writing skills deficient.

The purpose of this summative evaluation is to collect, analyze, and summarize data to present to the stakeholders of the SGM-A, so they can make a judgement regarding the effectiveness and efficiency of the IMSPC (Smith & Ragan, 2005). This report will cover collecting data from a  designated audience using evaluation matrix (questions), methods, and tools. Using multiple data collection strategies that align with the evaluation matrix will create a strong evaluation to provide to the stakeholders of the SGM-A. Finally, the Smith & Ragan third edition of Instructional Design is the primary guide for this summative evaluation.
