Kentucky Educational Needs Assessment Study Phase I. I. Final Report, II. State and Regional Profiles.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
The Kentucky state plan for the collection of data concerning the cognitive, affective and pscyhomotor needs of school children is discussed. The plan entails: (1) identification of the needs of learners to be served, (2) determination of the criticality of the learner needs that are identified by applying judgmental values, (3) establishment of performance goals for the alleviation of critical needs and development of programs to meet these critical needs, and (4) application of measures of accountability based upon performance goals, to the progress of such programs. In this context, the Needs Assessment Study is but the first step toward comprehensive planning. This report synthesizes and displays the findings of a year spent in setting the stage, creating an awareness of the need for the effort, establishing an appropriate organizational framework, and implementing a state-wide study of learner needs.
