Needs Assessment for Inservice Education.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Div. of Instruction and Professional Development.
This document discusses how to conduct a needs assessment for inservice teacher education. It states that the form or method of conducting a needs assessment must be decided upon after first considering teacher preferences, cost, and the capabilities of the local organization implementing the survey. Three methods of conducting needs assessment are described (oral, written, and a combination of both), and the advantages and disadvantages are presented. It is stated that after consideration has been given to the form or method, the type of needs assessment survey must be decided upon. The four types listed are (1) open-ended subjective responses, (2) the checklist variety, (3) scales, and (4) the discrepancy model. Sample instruments and an outline of a needs assessment workshop are then presented. (PB)
