A Comprehensive Needs Assessment for the Program of Vocational Education in Georgia. Executive Summary.
Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.
A project was conducted in Georgia to design a needs assessment instrument and to administer it in order to determine the current state of vocational education in the state. Following the collection and review of data and personal interviews with Georgia secondary and postsecondary teachers and administrators, a needs assessment survey form was developed and distributed to 35 members of the state advisory council on vocational education, 50 teacher educators, 62 state education department staff members, 112 postsecondary administrators, 302 secondary administrators, 112 postsecondary teachers, and 348 secondary teachers. Results of the needs assessment, compiled from a 45 percent return rate, showed needs in the following areas: summer conference, personnel development, curriculum, current issues, and research. Recommendations for meeting these needs were summarized for each of the groups of vocational education personnel, and activities were enumerated for carrying out the recommendations. Finally, a needs assessment guide was developed to aid in future research, and the results of the study were disseminated throughout the state. (KC)
