This report summarizes an evaluation of educational needs in the areas of health and physical education, physical recreation, and athletic programs within the Fresno City Unified School District. The criteria of evaluation were primarily comparative. A standard of skill development was first derived and then used to compare the present performance level of students within the program. Authorities on present practices were consulted to establish the comparative standard, which was then classified into the biogenic needs, sociogenic needs, and educational needs of the learner. Site visits provided opportunities to interview district and school administrative personnel and physical education teachers about program curriculum and course content. This method of inquiry provided information to establish a matrix of educational needs. The major conclusions included a need for a more diversified program under the leadership of better qualified personnel, a more complete progress report program of individual students, and more adequate facilities. A related document is EA 002 839. (LN)
