Pupil-Perceived Needs Assessment Package.
DeLorme, Hsuan L.; And Others
The Pupil-Perceived Needs Assessment (PPNA) is designed to assist school personnel in collecting information on pupil attitudes, reactions, and feelings towards new and existing curricular and extracurricular programs or towards education in general, and to assess pupils' needs from the pupils' perspective. The package is not meant to be used as an evaluation tool nor as the sole basis for planning program changes. It is recommended that PPNA be used with other data (such as pupil academic performance, and supplementary data from other groups, such as parents, teachers, or state policy makers), and that school district personnel determine the relative weight of all data collected. A questionnaire is usually recommended for use in collecting student data; time, cost, and personnel are factors to be considered in undertaking PPNA. The tasks involved in PPNA are described: developing, administering, processing, analyzing, and reporting PPNA data. Activities and instructions for developing a PPNA program are detailed. (MH)
