Week 3 – Assignment

Competencies Self-Assessment

[WLO: 2] [CLOs: 1, 3]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review Chapters 22 through 31 of the course textbook.

The purpose of this assignment is to examine the competencies that are essential for a career in student services and to reflect on your strengths and areas of growth within these competencies. This exercise will be concluded in the Week 4 Self-Assessments Recommendations discussion, where you and your peers will comment on each other’s Self-Assessments.

This week’s textbook chapters from Part 5 focus on essential competencies (Chapters 22 through 31), which include

  • Professionalism
  • Multiculturalism
  • Leadership
  • Staffing and supervision
  • Teaching and Facilitation
  • Counseling and helping skills
  • Advising student organizations
  • Crisis management
  • Designing programs for engaging differences
  • Applying theories and research to practice

For this assignment, develop and submit a professional presentation meeting the following content expectations:

  • Describe each of the 10 competency categories named above (at least one slide for each competency will give you at least 10 slides). In each description, be sure to include the name of the competency, what it includes, and why it is important to a career in student services.
  • Identify, for each competency, those in which you show particular strength as well as those in which you require further growth and development.
  • Justify your choice for one of the competencies for which you identified a need for further growth and development (one slide).
  • Create an action plan using a specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goal that will help you work toward progressing in your identified area of growth within the chosen competency that you identified as a need for the further growth and development (on the same slide as the previous bullet).
  • Describe how professional organizations might play a role in helping you grow professionally (on a final slide). For guidelines on using proper SMART formatting, view the video Learn to Write SMART Goals in 2 Minutes (Links to an external site.)

The Competencies Self-Assessment presentation

  • Must provide the text of your narration for each slide. If you are using Microsoft PowerPoint for your presentation, use the presenter notes under each slide found in Microsoft PowerPoint to write the transcript that you will then narrate. You may also utilize the Microsoft PowerPoint recording feature (view this video for support) or use the presenter tool of your choice, such as

If you do not choose PowerPoint for your presentation, consider using Prezi (Links to an external site.) to create your slides. Write your transcript in a Word document, upload as a separate attachment, and then use one of the presenter tools above to narrate your Prezi. You may appear on camera with your content or just have your voice recorded. You must provide text and bullet points and graphics on your slides. (Most of your content will be included in the notes section of your PowerPoint or on your Word document.)

For further assistance with the formatting and the title page, refer to APA Formatting for Word 2013 (Links to an external site.).

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
