Needs Assessment: Who Needs It?
Hays, Donald G.; Linn, Joan K.
This monograph addresses the issue of needs assessment in the educational process and how it applies to the school counselor's role. The authors provide information on the process of needs assessment, from the initial step of obtaining commitment to the final outcome of improved program planning and development. Using an example common to many situations and settings, the authors spell out the step-by-step procedures necessary for successful implementation of needs assessment. The bibliography and appendixes provide various materials that the readers can adopt or adapt for use in their own work settings. There is also a list of schools and agencies already engaged in the process who will provide reactions and opinions. (Author/YRJ)
