The Use of Elementary School Goals in a Grade Level Needs Assessment.
This study is one part of an Elementary School Evaluation Kit, and it deals with the initial step of needs assessment -- that of helping the elementary principal determine which educational goals should be examined at this school. The report investigates the priority ratings of educational goals by parents and teachers of an urban community. More specifically, it examines the similarities and differences in ratings of 106 educational goals by parents and teachers of two elementary schools serving differing socioeconomic levels. The priority ratings were made on the basis of achievement of a goal at a specified grade level. Results indicate generally high agreement among the total sample of parents and teachers regarding the top 20 goals. Regardless of group, school, or grade, affective goals were consistently among those that received the highest ratings, yet materials for assessing and planning in terms of these goals are either lacking or inadequate.
