An Urban Student-Based Needs Assessment.
Hanson, J. Robert; Silver, Harvey F.
The findings of an assessment of urban student needs conducted by the Design Center of the New Jersey Department of Education on 155 urban educators and residents is presented in this document. The assessment activities took place within the context of an urban education conference sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Education, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Interstate Planning Project, and the Educational Improvement Center, Northeast. This post-assessment activity report also provides information for the conduct of a need assessment. The assessment activity is an "open" model, i.e., needs are solicited on the basis of the individual respondent's concerns, and are not based on a listing of multiple needs from an external source. Results show that eight of the nine responding groups cited basic skills as the most critical of all urban student needs. (Author/AM)
