Needs Assessment Package for Learning Resource Services to Handicapped and Other Disadvantaged Students.
Association of Coll. and Research Libraries, Chicago, IL. Junior Coll. Libraries Section.
This assessment package was designed to facilitate the identification and appraisal of the learning resources and services that are provided to handicapped and other disadvantaged students at two-year colleges. The instrument helps evaluate services available to the following student populations: blind and partially sighted students; deaf and hearing-impaired students; students in wheelchairs, including those with multiple handicaps; ambulatory handicapped; educationally disadvantaged students; students with native languages other than English; foreign students; and students with mental or psychological disorders, learning disabilities, alcoholics, or drug addicts. Each assessment section requires the evaluator to record information about total number enrolled, numbers in component groups, whether enrollments have or are expected to increase or decrease, and the names of staff members providing assistance to the students. It then contains checklists of learning resources and services already available, forms to record results of interviews with students, and plan to effect change. (MB)
