Assignment 1: Ethical Dilemma
This module taught you that ethical practice during the evaluation process is vital to the reliability of the evaluation that is produced. As in most areas of the helping professions, the ethical principles are not absolute, leading to an evaluator’s careful consideration of the actions he or she takes and the strategies he or she employs.
Using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet, research and read about the assignment topic. In a minimum of 200 words, respond to the following:
- Analyze Fiona’s case from your textbook. What are the ethical issues that you believe she is facing?
- What are the “benefits and costs” from Fiona’s perspectives?
- What are the “benefits and costs” from the agencies’ perspectives?
- If you were Fiona, what would be your decision (conduct the evaluation in-house or contract out)? What is your rationale for this decision?
