The Research Plan
In this course, the research plan simulates a field test of your team’s solution. The research plan includes a set of real-world scenarios that could be experienced by any team in any organization. How will your proposed Task Force Plan stand up against these real-world scenarios?
The Step 4 Scenarios for Testing(new tab) page is not available until your team has completed the Task Force Plan Proposal.
Testing the solution will yield results. In this course, the results of your test will show the strengths and weaknesses of your Task Force Plan. What you learn from testing your plan against the scenarios will help you revise and clarify your solution.
Instructions for Deliverable
- Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade. You can learn more about the specific skills being assessed by reviewing the links in Problem-Based Learning Resources(new tab).
- As a team, determine how you will present your test results. An optional template is this Scenario Testing Results Template(Word document).
- Each team member must choose at least one of the scenarios listed in Step 4 Scenarios for Testing(new tab). Carefully plan so that each team member is testing against a different scenario. If your team would like to include additional scenarios in this step, determine a team approach to conduct the extra testing.
- To conduct the test, read the scenario carefully. Describe how a team would use the Task Force Plan to work through the scenario. Analyze the plan for any weaknesses; does it provide the solution(s) needed? Make recommendations for improving the solutions(s) within the plan to better address the scenario.
- Present the results of your test as organized information. Provide a brief summary of the action steps needed to strengthen your solution. Clearly indicate team members’ contributions.
- One person from the team must submit the deliverable per the schedule outlined in your Team PBL Plan but no later than Workshop Four.
