The final project consists of an accumulation of information throughout the previous seven weeks, which you begin compiling in your Written Assignments 1 and 2 (see details below). Your final paper will be based on these previous assignments, feedback provided, and a final product that you would deliver and review with your HRM leadership team and employee(s). I encourage you to read through all the assignments to understand the complete process expectations. Your role in creating these assignments is that of an HRM manager.

Task Statements

Complete the Task Statement template posted in Doc Sharing. Be sure the task statements are specific, time determined, and measurable. Be sure the task statements are single task items. You do not want multiple tasks within one task statement because that will make it difficult to identify the KSA and to measure later for performance evaluation.

Best Practices

Print This Page

  • Include all aspects of the assignment criteria outlined.
  • Use 12-point font (Arial, Times New Roman), double spaced, and 1” margins as a standard format.
  • Do not include extra lines between paragraphs, etc.
  • There should be theory used in each assignment as outlined. 
  • Keller Graduate School (DeVry University) policies are in effect including the plagiarism policy; cite in text when quoting (copying information word for word) or using words/thoughts that are not your own.
  • Submit assignments in Word documents and templates provided only to the dropbox by the due date.
  • All papers should have a separate title page, which includes name, paper title, and university.
  • Paper should have topical flow with like subjects in each paragraph. 
  • Proofread your papers before submitting. Spell check is not foolproof.
  • There should be minimal copied information (<5%); this just teaches you how to copy and paste. Use critical thinking skills to understand the material researched.
  • Papers should be third person.
  • Academic writing is a formal writing style, sharing information and facts (theory).
  • Fully describe the concepts and theories; what does the information mean? If you make a statement such as, “All people who break the law should improve their communication skills to stay out of jail,” you must substantiate that statement. If that statement is not your own thought or is a statistic, cite it. If it is your opinion, state that and explain what led to that conclusion. Provide enough information to validate and explain statements.
