Needs Assessment Package for Right to Read School-Based Centers; and Program Planning Procedure.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Right to Read Program.
The Right to Read Needs Assessment Package (NAP) is designed to assist individual schools in evaluating their current reading program, personnel, and achievement in a relatively short period of time as a prelude to planning a more effective approach to reading instruction. The contents include instructions and suggested forms for the collection of data in the areas of student performance, reading program, resources, and decision making. The required data are generally available in school records or could be gathered from individual interviews with school staff or students. The data are to be recorded in the Needs Assessment Summary Chart, Step 2, of the Right to Read Program Planning Procedure. The information is organized in the order in which it is to be recorded in the Needs Assessment Summary Chart. The chart can be used to record data for an individual school or for a school district if pooling of data is necessary. Appendixes include test evaluation, definition of terms, a scale to measure attitudes toward reading, basic approaches, and library or media staff materials, equipment, and expenditures. A "Program Planning Procedure" supplement is also included. (WR)
