Assignment: Balanced Scorecard HCA 610
For this assignment, you will be required to collaborate with classmates to develop a balanced scorecard. Your instructor will assign groups of 3 – 4 members.
The balanced scorecard for your group should be prepared in accordance with the guidelines found in the Rohm reading assigned in Module 6.
Review the Balanced Scorecard Institute reading assigned in Module 6 for examples of balanced scorecards (http://www.balancedscorecard.org/Portals/0/PDF/BalancedPerformance Article1.pdf).
This assignment makes use of a grading rubric, which can be found in the assignment’s drop box. Because instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment, students should review it before beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion.
HCA 610 Week 8 Course Self-Evaluation and Reflection-GCU
You must write a reflection and self-evaluation of your understanding of health care business analyses for this assignment. Your homework should include a discussion of the following topics:
1) A synopsis of your knowledge of health care business analyses: Why is it important, in your own words? What exactly does it entail?
2) What was the most important concept you discovered during the course? How did the course assignments help you understand this concept?
3) Do you still have questions about health care business analyses? Was there anything else you anticipated learning that the course did not cover?
4) How well do you understand health care business analyses in general? What steps do you intend to take to expand your knowledge and understanding?
You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
