Assessment 3 Instructions: Brain Injury Case Studies
As you work on this assessment, you’ll have the chance to explore strategies for enhancing learning and memory. You’ll consider what might explain someone whose long-term memory is fine but who has problems with short-term memory. Forgetting everyday things happens to everyone. You’ll consider what might contribute to this and strategies to help prevent it.
Once you have learned cognitive theories and models, you can begin to use them to help understand challenges that individuals experience with learning and cognition. That’s what you’ll do for this assessment.
In this assessment, you will practice applying theories and models to help your understanding of several case studies. In preparation, complete the following media piece:
* Riverbend City: Case Studies
Use the APA Paper: Template (DOCX) to complete the assessment:
* Summarize briefly the featured case studies.
* Include in your summary the condition depicted and possible causes of the memory loss using theories and research from the course readings.
* Integrate your course resources and at least three peer-reviewed and scholarly resources (no more than five years old) to help support your analysis.
* Describe the research methods used in the sources cited and analysis of their appropriateness.
* Conclude with possible treatment options for the person featured in the case study, using scholarly research sources as a basis.
Important: Prior to submission, conduct a self-evaluation of this assessment using the scoring guide and identifying the proficiency level for each criterion. Submit your assessment and the self-evaluation (as a separate attachment). See below for more instructions.
When you have finished, write a separate, one-page self-evaluation of your work compared to the scoring guide criteria.
1. Ensure that you have completed all assessment requirements (ideally at the Distinguished level).
2. Evaluate your performance using the criteria in the scoring guide.
* Compare and contrast your self-evaluation from the previous assessment with the feedback provided by your faculty to align your personal evaluation with faculty expectations.
3. Indicate the proficiency level you meant for each criterion.
4. Include the scoring guide (including comments) with your self-evaluation.
5. Submit the self-evaluation as a separate attachment when you submit your assessment.
You may find the Self-Evaluation Tool helpful in guiding you through this process.
