Student Needs Assessment Guide.
Lewis, Jean; And Others
Designed as a component of a career exploratory program at Vale Middle School, Vale, Oregon, the Student Needs Assessment Guide provides middle school teachers with an instrument to be used in helping students assess themselves as individuals and to match this assessment with current and expected roles in the adult world. The guide consists of two major components: (1) student needs assessment program goals/objectives and (2) resources. Major goals (pertaining to self-awareness, self-image, values, decision-making, student occupational potentials, career choice, work attitudes, employment skills, job requirements, occupational clusters, maintaining employment, employment trends, and leisure-time activities) are outlined in a three-column format which identifies suggested activities and resources (cross references to the appendixes) to be related to specific objectives. Over 450 pages of the document consist of appendixes, with major coverage given to Appendix A, classroom activities. The vast compilation of "hands-on" materials includes various forms, rating sheets, self-concept/personality checklists, interest and attitude surveys, emotional maturity self-tests, personal data sheets, evaluation checksheets, profiles, and experience and self-analysis questionnaires. Other appendixes contain references for films, filmstrips, kits and games, transparencies, and tapes, which are arranged in triple-column format with titles and descriptions, location, and appropriate user level.
