Core Assessment:

For CJ300, the student will analyze and report on a section/bureau/division in a criminal justice agency. The focus of the analysis is to examine the manner in which the section/bureau/division influences agency operations. Examples include Human Resources Section, Records Division, Office of Legal Affairs, Internal Affairs and/or Professional Standards, Labor Relations Office, Budget Section for the ABC County Sheriff’s Office or the DEF Juvenile Detention Center. 

The purposes in conducting and writing this study are to improve your ability to synthesize, analyze, and evaluate information carefully and objectively, solve problems effectively, present your ideas in clear written form directed to a specific audience, in this case, your class. 

To complete this project, you should: 

  1. Select the agency and section/bureau/division in which you are interested.
  2. Gather materials from the agency, such as organization charts, annual reports, and budgets.
  3. Interview persons working in the section about their job(s).
  4. Observe the activities in the section.
  5. Describe the structure, practice, and procedures of the agency and of the section you plan to analyze.
  6. Describe the procedures you will use to conduct your study including interviewing some people who work in the section.
  7. Compare similar agencies.
  8. Describe the results of your study.
  9. Make conclusions about your findings, including the positive and negative aspects you discovered. 

Your paper must include:

  1. A cover page
  2. Introduction
  3. Methodology section
  4. Discussion
  5. Reference page
  6. Appendix which might include a summary of your interview(s) and organization charts of your agency and your section 

The text of this paper should be at least 2,000 words or eight pages typewritten or computer-generated, not counting the cover page, reference pages, appendices. You must demonstrate that you understand the terminology and the concepts used in the section of the agency you study and that you know how to apply these concepts.   You must demonstrate that you can synthesize, analyze, and evaluate information. You must correctly use APA format in source citation both in the body of the paper and in the reference page.

Class Assessment:

Reading: The entire textbook will be read for this class.  Assignments are indicated on the weekly schedule.  Students are responsible for reading the assignment prior to the class in which the topic will be discussed.

The weekly lectures are part of the required reading.

Lecture/discussions: Students are expected to participate in discussions and to read the lectures. Class participation is considered a major component of this course.  While a student will be marked as "present" merely by logging into the course, this is not what class participation involves.  It is expected that students will actively participate in the weekly discussion threads with thoughtful responses. Each week there will be discussion questions posed for comment by each student. 

Additionally, it is expected that students will engage others in discussing the issues raised in the thread.  To receive maximum credit for participation there is both a quality and quantity measurement.  If you need a number for responses 8-10 would work; but not limited to a fixed number.  Quality is the degree to which the student addresses specific issues and comments of others.  Quantity is the absolute number of postings.  For example one could have 6 or 7 postings that did not relate to the issue and no credit would be awarded.  However, if the minimum number of posting were made that directly focused on the discussion issue then maximum credit would be awarded. The issue of quality and quantity are interrelated because simply making two comments to a couple of postings and leaving no other evidence of being involved in the discussion is insufficient for granting credit. The discussion thread is a "virtual classroom" which suggests participation throughout the discussion period. The opportunity to make comments and participate is there to help you increase your grade for that week’s discussion. Comments or postings after those dates will not be evaluated for grading purposes.

Remember posting all your responses on the same day does not make a discussion.

Results of your work can be located in the grade book. 

Final Exam: There will be a proctored final during week 8. A study guide or Exam Tips will be posted during week 5.

Homework Papers: There are 5 written exercises.  These are short paper 1-2 pages.  The will be submitted in the drop box for that week.  They should be supported with outside material, web sites, personal experiences and ideas.  Be sure to list your sources used.
