Wood, R. Ronald
The results of a needs assessment designed to determine the needs and problems of select disadvantaged students completing vocational education programs at Fresno City College (FCC), California, are presented in this report. Part 1 provides the needs assessment and program planning model, including a flow chart, and the narrative description. Part 2 describes the field testing of the model: the concerns assessment and the student testing and FCC records data. Part 3 includes the following measurable student objectives for the Extended Opportunity Program and the Enabler Program at FCC developed from the data obtained from the needs assessment: retention, attitudes, measurements, affirmative action, program completion, personal growth/fulfillment outcomes, required skills/knowledge outcomes, and grade point average outcomes. Part 4 presents these conclusions: using the tools and logic of educational system planning, a needs assessment and planning model for community college disadvantaged student programs can be developed; and for given community college disadvantaged students, concerns can be identified using existing college documents and personal group interviews. Part 4 also includes the following recommendations: all components of the needs assessment and planning model should be thoroughly field tested; and a new model should be developed to strengthen the present one.
