A Seminar and Training Program in Needs Assessment and Goal Development. Final Report.
Morgan, James M.
This report describes two sets of training materials used in needs assessment and goal development programs. One set of materials trains local school/community groups to set goals for their schools. The second set trains evaluation specialists to assist the school community in the goal-setting process and emphasizes the technical skills related to data collection and use. The materials used by community groups consist of 10 units requiring a total of 16 hours or less to complete. The evaluation specialists' training materials are in 11 units requiring 20 hours total time. Both sets of materials are based on the goal development process which consists of problem identification by the school community, validation of these problems through school data and a community survey, translation of problems into goals, and an ordering of priorities. After a field test of the training materials, modifications were included with a training manual. Tape/slide presentations, simulations, and self-instructional exercises are employed in the programs. Three tables of data are presented in the report. (BRB)
