The Assessment of Adult Needs: Phase 1 of Multi-County Assessment of Adult Needs Project (MAP).
McLennan Community Coll., TX.
The McLennan Community College Multi-County Needs Assessment Project's (MAP) survey, assessing the felt and perceived needs, problems, and interests of the local population relative to education and training programs, is discussed in the document. The Needs Assessment Survey, one component of MAP, was conducted in the central Texas area (Bosque, Falls, Hill, and McLennan counties) during 1974. Survey development and procedures for its implementation are discussed including the interview process, eight objectives, sampling procedures and reliability, and data processing. Senior citizens were trained as interviewers, and field supervision was provided. Sample size was determined at 750 with 20.9 percent of the survey population reporting a need or desire for additional training and education. The discussion is supplemented by tables. Results of the survey are presented through brief analyses, individually by objective, and through a summary. The interviewer's manual, the questionnaire, and tabulated responses are appended and make up over half of the document. The questionnaire responses (89 pages) are tabulated by demographic subgroups. It is hoped that the information presented will prove helpful to potential users of these survey methods and that the data provided will form a common base for adult education decision-makers. (LH)
