ADDIE Model - Evaluation

I have created a Course Title and Description:

Title:
Nursing Recertification (LPN)

Course Description:

The purpose of this course is to provide 60 hours of instruction for licensed nurses to be recertified. All performance skills and written test material will be tested in a challenge format.

Students must pass all written test with a grade of 80% or better.

Course entrance requirements include:
All nurses must show their current license to the course instructor and provide proof of prior licensed nurse recertification within the past 2 years.

These are my questions:

What types of evaluation strategies would be applicable for this type of instructional model?

What type of outcome review method could be used to determine if design goals, and performance based objectives, and learning outcomes have been achieved?

What would be possible future recommendations based on the outcome review and analysis?

I have a question regarding the outcomes. If my performance objectives are the following:

Performance Objectives:
Objective 1
Students will take a quiz at the end of each classroom meeting to measure their productivity . The students are expected to pass each quiz with a minimum of 80% or better.
Objective 2
At the conclusion of the course portion covering performance skills, students will:
(1) Take oral temperature
(2) Perform passive range of motion with patients
(3) Measure blood pressure
(4) Give partial bath
Objective 3
At the end of the course the student is expected to:
Pass a written competency evaluation examination

would there be a change in the evaluation strategies, outcome review and recommendations?

What types of evaluation strategies would be applicable for this type of instructional model?

Addie and related models use both summative and formative evaluation. Formative evaluation is designed to help the student identify and correct weaknesses and mistakes, and would include the feedback given during the course. Various strategies can be used, ranging from verbal feedback from the instructor to more formal quizes and assignments. Often, the plan will include remedial material to be used if the evaluation reveals weaknesses in the students.

Summative evaluation provides a final evaluation and determines whether the student has passed the course or not. Again, several strategies can be used, but they are generally more formal than simple feedback from the instructor. Written tests are often used. For a program such as LPN certification, which has a big practical element, the strategies should include asking the students to actually demonstrate the required skills and should not be limited to written examinations or assignments.

Solution Summary

The student has created a course to re-certify LPNs, and has some questions about the best way to design evaluation for this course.
