Needs Assessment Survey of the Chatham County Media Program.
Wilkinson, Gene L.
A needs assessment survey was conducted as part of a study initiated by the Chatham County Public School System in Savannah, Georgia, to improve the educational opportunities available to learners within the school system. The two-part survey, dealing with problem area aspects of building and system level media programs, followed a standard form of discrepancy rating analysis, and assessed the perceptions and desires of teachers, principals, and media specialists in the Chatham system. All 391 teachers, principals, and media specialists who participated in the survey were asked to respond to the building level survey, while only media specialists and principals were asked to respond to the system level survey. A data analysis was conducted for each of the major sub-populations and for each of these groups by level of school. Major problem area aspects identified at the building level by all sub-populations included (1) provision of facilities for the local production of instructional materials, (2) use of instructional television as a basic component of the instructional program, and (3) provision of assistance with the local production of instructional materials. Appendices include samples of system and building level survey forms and analysis work sheets. (CMV)
