Customized Educational Plan
The customized education plan will be a work in progress throughout this course, and will be submitted toward the end of the semester. The written product will be a plan of study, work experience, as well as individual skills/aptitude assessment.
Outline of the Customized Educational Plan:
Front Page-Identified career title, Name, course ID, date (see example-under documents section of modules)
Academic plan-degrees needed (Bachelors, Masters, PhD), outlined course of study, college application process
Work/volunteer experience-outline of work or volunteer experience, and plan of action
Strengths-according to aptitude tests, vocational assessment, prior employer feedback, other feedback from identified knowledgeable persons
Areas of concern/needed improvement-address a plan of how to overcome a barrier or obtain a skill that may be challenging. (ex. if I want to become an accountant and math is a challenge for me, then how will I improve my math skills? Practice timed math tests, on-line tutoring, etc)
Information for the customized educational plan should come from:
weekly journal entries
in-class group discussions
aptitude tests or vocational assessments (on-line, from textbook, or in-person)
material review-textbook, class handouts, canvas postings
previous employment-performance appraisals, supervisory feedback-verbal/written
college reviews-programs, courses of study offered, college statistics/ratings, etc.
What Should My CEP Look Like?
There is not a template per se, for the Customized Educational Plan (herein referred to as CEP). Each student will have slightly different content, but the structure should be similar. This is an academic paper, APA format, and should be free of grammatical errors.
If you have been doing the Academic Journal assignments , you should have anywhere from 20-40 pages at the end. All of the assignments given were to provide the content necessary for the CEP, which the average length is about 8 pages. If your is longer, that is fine; if yours is a little shorter that may not necessarily be a problem-as long as content is good. Your CEP is kind of like the abstract of your Academic Journal, but much more than 150-200 words.
If you have NOT kept up with your journal assignments, the CEP will prove to be a significant task, as trying to get 13 weeks of work done in 1 week….hmmm. Let me know if you need some support and guidance-I will help you.
Your CEP should be an academic paper that takes me through your journey of your Academic and Career Options in Psychology. For some of you, this journey started long before coming to our class. Others, this started when you first “sat down” in the online classroom and you completed the Learning Style Inventory. I have given (or will be giving) you “homework” or introspective assignments, to help you explore your strengths, motives, resources and supports, academic skills, life management or supports for mental wellness, etc. I expect that you help me to understand what you have done, what needs to be done, and concrete plan for doing it. You should have the back story, now story, and future plan within your CEP.

You should make an outline before putting your paper together
First page-title page (APA format), Last page-reference page
You can organize your paper, as you desire. Please do not provide charts, unless as an appendix for reference. For instance, if you are outlining courses necessary for you desired degree-do not copy/paste from a website, school handbook, or student plan per se. This is an academic paper, with academic paragraphs and narrative.
Here are some questions to ask yourself, for clarification. Please do NOT type up a paper that is just answers to these questions. You can put headers if you like, or not.
What have you done to figure out your academic plan and your career plan? Have you figured out whether psychology is for you? What field is of most interest? Have you assessed your ability to be successful in the field? Do you have sufficient supports? Have you assessed how your strengths and weaknesses apply to your academic and career goals? What is your motive for pursuing psychology? For instance, I may want to pursue psychology because “I want to help people”. I should have figured out by now how realistic is that for me as a person, with whatever tools or baggage that I have.
What needs to be done? Do you have more exploration to figure out what career is best? Do you have a barrier to your success (weakness) in your future academic or career path? Do you need to obtain experience via volunteering, or internship, to truly sort out whether your desired path is right for you? What is your plan if you find out that what you thought you wanted to do, is NOT for you? I may want to be a neurosurgeon, but realize I cannot stand blood or the sound the skull saw makes.
Do not forget about your academic career. What supports do you need to ensure you achieve, or maintain, the studious self that you should be?
Concrete Plan-in behavioral terms. What, who, where, how, when…..
