A Principal's Handbook for Conducting a Needs Assessment Using the School Program Bonanza Game.
Mullen, David J.; Mullen, Rosemary C.
The School Program Bonanza Game is an approach to conducting a needs assessment. It differs somewhat from other needs assessment packages in that it attempts to provide a needs assessment concerning the overall purposes or goals of the school. In essence, the game asks people to choose a mix of variables from a range of competing alternatives. The way respondents choose indicates the trade-off values of individual items. This handbook provides a copy of the game, a section on administration and use of the game, and a section on the game's background. The game is to be administered to students, parents, board of education members, and laymen. (Author/IRT)
