DIRECTIONS FOR WEEK 2
For this week, you will be collecting data about your process that you selected. You will use the tool you designed. Collect the data for a certain period of time that is appropriate for the activity (usually 3 days). Set a time limit for this week. Do it early in the week, so you will have time to collate your data and make it look good for the presentation.
Collect your data and present it to me in an easy to read format. Use graphs and/or tables. Look at Chapters 4 and 5 in the textbook. That will show you different ways to present data. Your paper should be 3-4 pages.
1. Submit an expanded description of your process from Week 1.
2. Collect the data about the process you selected
3. Use the tool you created to record your data

Other comments (same from last week):
-The “process” to study is:
Something you can study about work or your personal life
It should be an area of performance you would like to change
Keep it a simple topic that won’t require complex data collection and change
-The “collection tool” varies depending on the data you are collecting. The following are some suggestions as to the type of data collection tool/form you would develop:
A “yes/no” form
A “number of correct/incorrect items” form
A “time spent on a task” form
It is the way to identify areas for improvement when you analyze the data
-In week 3 you will be assigned to your group
-In week 3 you will present your paper to your team (as will the other team members)
The Paper (Part One…B) that you submit this week is worth 15 points. This is part of the 250 points of the assignment.
*In week 3 there will be another set of “Directions”
You will be assigned to your group in week 3.
You will present this paper you are submitting this week to your group in week 3.
