Comprehensive Needs Assessment: Workshop Guide.
RMC Research Corp., Denver, CO.; Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Denver, CO. Region E.
This publication is a guide with the materials necessary for leading a workshop session on comprehensive needs assessment for Chapter 1 programs for teachers and administrators. As the packet points out, secondary and elementary schools with Chapter 1 programs often do comprehensive needs assessment to satisfy federal regulations or to record current program status, to make decisions, or to evaluate and plan. This workshop teaches participants to define comprehensive needs assessment, to understand the rationale for such assessment, and to become familiar with the assessment process. A list of the transparencies and handouts used in the workshop as well as an outline of the 3-hour workshop are provided. The actual guide to the workshop covers the following areas: (1) workshop goals (includes a definition, an activity, and a discussion); (2) discussion of the rationale for conducting an assessment; (3) assessment process (includes discussion and activity designing a sample assessment using the collect, record, analyze, and report data format); and (4) debriefing including discussion and session evaluation. Throughout the guide, graphs indicate when to use the 16 specially designed transparencies and 6 handouts. (JB)
