Educational Needs Assessment, 1972. Arkansas Department of Education.
Watson, Charles D.
A summary of pre-test data collected for the Arkansas needs assessment project is presented. This report reflects the results of a two-year study. The project includes assessment in all three learning domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. The State of Arkansas was divided into three geographic areas, and participating districts were nominated on the basis of geographic location, racial make-up and size. Data collection in the cognitive domain was limited to the third and eighth grades. The SRA Achievement Series was used at both levels. In measuring the affective domain, the secondary level School Sentiment Index was employed. Assessment in the psychomotor domain was limited to students in the eighth and eleventh grades; testing for these students was done with the President's Council on Physical Fitness Test. Conclusions are given as related to the cognitive and affective domains. (CK)
