Each of your answers should respond to the properly numbered question. You may use your book and online resources including the SPEC library. Working with another student (presently or previously enrolled) is considered a violation of the SPEC academic honesty policy. After each of the 7 questions (items taken from the critical thinking model in chapter 4) you will find a rubric which will guide to you earn the best possible score for each answer. 1 Identification (1 0 points possible) Identify the central ethical issue present in the case. What is the main ethical problem the decision-maker must resolve?
Furthermore, you must identify as many OTHER ethical issues, questions, or problems as you can find in the scenario. Distinguish the central issue from the others you identified. Use details and examples to communicate and explain your response. Be sure to focus on and apply the critical thinking model to the central issue throughout the rest of this paper. Rubric: The following is a rubric. A rubric tells you how you will be graded for this assignment. For example, in this section you can earn 8-10 points for identifying ethical ideas or issues with numerous purporting details and examples which are organized logically and coherently. 0-8 points 7-5 points 4-3 points 2-1 point(s) O points Identifies and distinguishes the central and secondary ethical ideas or issues with numerous supporting details and examples which are organized and communicated logically and coherently Identifies and distinguishes the central and secondary ethical ideas or issues with some supporting details and examples communicated in an organized manner Identifies and didst anguishes the central ethical issue and some secondary issues with few details or examples; communicated in a somewhat organized manner Identifies and distinguishes the central ethical issue poorly.

For each (A and B) you are to resolve the central ethical issue using the central principles of the theory. A brief summary of the theory should be included and you are encouraged to use the “Steps in Applying’ the theories presented in Chapters 5 and 6. Points Central principles of the theories are logically and systematically explained and applied to the central ethical issue to reach a resolution of the main problem. Central principles of the theories are explained and applied, but ay not be logically consistent or applied to specifics of case. Applications of the central principles of the theories and the summary may be shallow, cursory, or too general.
Applications of the central principles of the theories and the theory summaries are either missing or are not connected to the central issue and options in the case. Does not apply central principles to reach a resolution of main issue. Summary of theory missing. 4. Decision-Making (1 0 points) Choose the wisest, most ethical option and justify your decision. This is NOT an opinion. Using your research and analysis of the options and stakeholders ND your applications of the ethical theories, laws, and rules, select and defend the morally right (or most ethical) resolution to the central ethical issue. Using facts and relevant evidence from your research and analysis, thoroughly explain why this is the best solution.
Thoroughly identifies and addresses key aspects of the issue and insightfully uses facts and relevant evidence from analysis to support and defend potentially valid solution Identifies and addresses key aspects of the issue and uses facts and relevant evidence from analysis to develop potentially valid inclusion or solution Identifies and addresses some aspects of the issue; develops possible conclusion or solution using some inappropriate opinions and irrelevant information from analysis Identifies and addresses only one aspect of the issue but develops untellable hypothesis; or develops invalid conclusions or solutions based on opinion or irrelevant information. Does not select and defend a solution 5. Evaluation (10 points) Identify and provide a minimum of three counter arguments against the option that you selected as being morally right (or ethically best). What are he possible arguments against the resolution/option you chose? How would you defend against those arguments?
Insightfully interprets data or information; identifies obvious as well as hidden assumptions, establishes credibility of sources on points other than authority alone, avoids fallacies in reasoning; distinguishes appropriate arguments from extraneous elements; provides sufficient logical support Accurately interprets data or information; identifies obvious assumptions, establishes credibility of sources on points other than authority alone, avoids fallacies in reasoning; distinguishes appropriate arguments from extraneous elements; provides sufficient logical support Makes some errors in data or information interpretation; makes arguments using weak evidence; provides superficial support for conclusions or solutions Interprets data or information incorrectly; Supports conclusions or solutions without evidence or logic; uses data, information, or evidence skewed by invalid assumptions; uses poor sources of information; uses fallacious arguments Does not evaluate data, information, or evidence related to best option. 6. Reflection (5 points) Reflect on your own thought process. What did you learn from this process? What could you do differently next time to improve the problem-solving process? 5 points 4 points 3-2 points 1 point Identifies strengths and weaknesses in own thinking: recognizes personal assumptions, values and perspectives, compares to others’, and evaluates them in the context of alternate points of view Identifies strengths and weaknesses in own thinking: recon sizes personal assumptions, values and perspectives, compares to others’, with some comparison of alternate points of view.
