Career Plans in the Course Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

I am particularly interested in the students who have challenges, either educationally or behaviorally. I feel that by working to develop new assessment tools it will be possible to further evaluate the skills and abilities for these students which may previously have been unavailable to us. I look forward to working with teachers, parents and students in order to formulate tools which will help students get the most out school.

Educational psychology is an excellent career move for me. I have experience working with children who have autism, high school students, and my personality seemed to be a good fit in what can be a challenging and rewarding environment. I think my current education and work experience melds nicely into my hopes to work in a research capacity, designing evaluations, analyzing and interpreting data and presenting coherent results. While I do not consider myself a linear thinking, I believe that my logical thought processes would work well for me in this field.

A currently hold a B.A in Criminal Justice and have significant experience in statistics and research theory. This will fit directly into my work in education since I have experience with a broad range of people as well as research methods. I worked with High School students in a special education setting for four years, as an instructional assistant teaching basic reading, writing and math to children who were Autistic. My work at Northrop Grumman was directly related to educational development as research and analysis. I was tasked with identifying solutions to tough problems related to missions. I collected, analyzed and fused data, and I have a great deal of experience in data and source validation and tailored methodology.

By pursing this degree, I hope to move from what was essentially a support role to one in which I can become a leader in research and development of effective educational assessment for these students. I feel my background makes me uniquely qualified for your exceptional program. I look forward to pursuing my education with you, and applying my experience and your methodologies to the development of accurate and effective tools. It is my sincere desire to focus on both research design and data analysis, since that is where my strengths lie. Since educational assessment is so important in the field of education, I hope to make a lasting contribution to educators and students, and hope you would consider me to be an asset to your program.
