The Assessment of Business and Industry Needs. Phase 2 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 to identify employer needs is discussed in the document. The Business and Industry Survey, one component of MAP, was conducted in the central Texas area (Bosque, Falls, Hill, and McLennan counties) during 1974-1975. Survey development and procedures for its implementation are discussed, including objectives, data preparation, supervision, administration, and data processing. Interviewers were selected from those who had conducted the Needs Assessment Survey, with training and supervision provided. A total of 127 businesses and agencies responded to the questionnaire; a random sampling technique was not employed. Questions covering general information, employee information, entrance requirements, problems, and supportive education programs were asked. Analysis of findings is presented, with 10 charts supplementing the discussion. A listing of the various businesses, industries, and agencies contacted; the questionnaire; code manual; tabulated responses to the questionainaire; and a listing of local job openings current as of January 1975 are appended. Information and data gained will be used to establish resource files for local curriculum planning, enabling school counselors, local educators, and manpower planners to concentrate on developing skill training areas specified as necessary by local businesses and agencies.
