Harrison County Teacher Education Center Needs Assessment Survey: A Second Look.
Curran, John
This paper contains an analysis of the data gathered from the 1975-76 Harrison County Teacher Education Center (HCTEC) needs assessment survey. The orginial study analyzed the opinions of 13 client groups concerning the HCTEC. The study concentrated on two major questions: (1) what are the opinions of the 13 client groups about the perceived needs for the HCTEC; and (2) how do these client groups differ in their opinions of the needs of HCTEC. The results of this study revealed that the existence of a center to perform a wide variety of important functions in Harrison County's educational structure elicited a strong positive reaction from all groups surveyed. Respondents to the original questionnaire suggested some changes in the questions. These suggestions were then reviewed by two out of state consultants who prepared a new survey. A strong continuity of results showed up in the comparison of results from the two surveys despite the changes in the instrument. The only new recommendation in terms of ongoing HCTEC programming concerns the pre-student teacher group. Some unfavorable perception of the center caused college students to shift dramatically in their opinions. Tables are included in appendix A. Appendix B contains the new survey as reviewed, edited and revised by seven teacher education center directors. (JD)
