Because the literature search plays an essential part in this unit and your final assignment, search the literature to gather six additional peer-reviewed articles that can support the theoretical foundation of the topic for your public needs
assessment project. You can use the Databases A–Z library guide for searching the articles. You will use these articles in this unit’s discussion and assignment as well as in the final assignment.
Unit 7 Assignment 1 – Planning, Designing, Foundation, Tools, and Strategy
Action Planning, Designing, Theoretical Foundation, Data Gathering Tools, and Intervention Strategy
In this unit’s studies, you were asked to gather six additional peer-reviewed articles (literature) and started exploring
relevant program or project theories, hypothesis, and intervention strategies for your public needs assessment project.
Now is the time to incorporate the information gathered including the feedback received on your post for this unit’s
discussion to aid in completing this assignment. This assignment forms the second basis and crucial components for the
final assignment in this course on the needs-based program you are designing to deal with your chosen problem or
condition. It describes the action-oriented research framework of the intervention strategy components for your public
needs assessment project.
Complete the following:
Introduction: Identify an area of interest for the instrumentality framework of your public needs assessment
planning process that can support your action-oriented research project. (0.5–1 page.)
Etiological analysis and SAF: By applying an etiological analysis approach, explain how the SAF of your public
needs assessment implicates the action-oriented research project for the instrumentality framework chosen.
Based on the review of the literature searched, provide a rationale and justification as to which identified
problem-solving model is appropriate in facilitating the etiological analysis you would use in tackling the SAF for
your public needs assessment project. (1–1.5 pages.)
Theoretical foundations of needs-based program planning processes: Remember that the review of the
literature is imperative to aid in identifying the theoretical foundations for designing of the needs-based program
planning processes, coupled with the description of the problem-solving model, and their responsive project
intervention strategies. Now, based on the review of the literature, identify and describe two levels of theoretical
foundations constituting the (a) theory of and (b) theory in that can serve as the backbone of your action-oriented
public needs assessment project. Be sure to integrate the six peer-reviewed articles to demonstrate how the two
levels of theories are in alignment with their unique planning processes and can support your action-oriented
public needs assessment project to bring about systems changes. (2–2.5 pages.)
Description of conceptualization of measurable action plan: Using the assigned readings and by incorporating
feedback received on your post in this unit’s discussion, it is about time to provide a revised design of the
conceptualization of measurable action plan you will use for your public needs assessment project. Be sure that
this includes descriptions of the overall goal, two outcome objectives and two corresponding process objectives,
as well as their realistic program or project hypotheses, and their suitable program or project activities. (2–2.5
Summary or conclusion: Be sure to summarize each of the areas covered in this assignment. Start with a
restatement of the purpose statement (verbatim) and tie this to the areas covered. (0.5–1 page.)
Your paper should meet the following requirements:
Planning, Designing, Foundation, Tools, and Strategy Scoring Guide.
Written communication: Written communication should demonstrate an academic writing style.
Resources: At least six peer-reviewed resources supporting your design and description.
APA format: Be sure to format your paper using current APA style and formatting guidelines.
Length of paper: 6–8 pages, excluding the cover page and references list.
