Tucker, Katie D.
A needs assessment project being conducted in Jacksonville, Florida and at Florida Junior College is described. The major intent of the project is stated to be the development of a valid, computerized model which will enable an educational system to research the educational needs of its community and to develop quantified data for decision-making. The report reviews selected research literature and lists the objectives and benefits which flow from such a needs assessment. Major project procedures are outlined, including site selection, methods of data acquisition, the development of baseline and critical decision-making data, and means of updating the data file. The developmental sequence for the proposed model is also described, beginning with the data base's development, proceeding through the stages of protopype evolution, and concluding with the testing, revision and complete documentation of the model. Lastly, the educational significance of such a model is discussed. (PB)
