Introduction and Purpose of the Risk Plan
A risk management plan is a manuscript that the person in charge of the project prepares. A risk management plan helps the manager to foresee the risks associated with the project he is willing to undertake, determine the risks of the product and establish the responses to the issues.
In this case, the class is a project. A class consists of many players, activities and is assessed by its ability to complete all its tasks on time. The main players involved in any class include teacher, students and parents. The actions that occur in the class include homework, assignments as well as end of semester exams. The core objective of the risk plan is to discover the risks that may occur in the course of the project, analyze them and help in determining ways and means of mitigating or avoiding them.

- New risks are analyzed and addressed as soon as they occur.
- Existing risks will be reanalyzed monthly to make sure they do not reoccur again.
The risks facing the class are accessed according to the effect they have on the goals of the class. The process of assessment starts from the riskiest to the low impact risks.
Risk management process
The risks that have a high impact on the project are addressed first and with speed as they can affect the whole project. Examples of such risks are absenteeism and lateness. The risks that have a medium impact, for example, lack of knowledge on the grading system are just highlighted. The risks with a low impact on the project are ignored entirely until they are considered to be of either high or medium impact for them to be analyzed.
