Rhode Island State Dept. of Education, Providence. Div. of Development and Operations.
The purpose of this manual is to provide guidelines and assistance to local education agency planners in the needs-assessment process. In the first section, the needs-assessment process is discussed within the overall framework of the program development cycle. Subsequent sections treat each step in the process, providing a model. Issues are raised, techniques are discussed, and alternative methodologies are presented. Important resources and necessary tools available to assist in the process are identified, along with some possible solutions. The manual is intended to be a concise outline of systematic processes for identifying needs and choosing solutions to respond to those needs. (Author/MLF)
