Adult Needs Assessment in Oklahoma.
Morton, J. B.; Hatfield, Gary
One thousand eighty-two adults in Oklahoma were contacted for telephone interviews to determine their perceived needs for vocational education. Based on 853 responses, the findings include the following: the two most convenient times adults are available for training is on a weekday in the morning or evening; the major barrier that limits participation in a training program is the lack of child care facilities at training institutions; twenty-three percent of the respondents were interested in leisure time education; the largest type of leisure time education that adults were interested in was for arts and crafts; the proportion of adults interested in skill training or leisure time education decreases as age increases; a larger proportion of females are interested in both skill training and leisure time education than males; a larger proportion of adults working part-time are interested in leisure time education; and the proportion of adults interested in leisure time education increases as the number of years of education increases. (This report includes thirty-seven tables. The interview questions in a flowchart format presenting the sequence in which questions were asked and the interview response sheet are appended.) (EM)
