Needs Assessment for Vocational Education Administrators: An Evolving System for Staff Development Decision Making. Field Test Report.
Leske, Gary; Frederickson, Steve
This report focuses on the field test initiated to substantiate the utility and application of previously developed staff development needs assessment instruments and their use. These instruments were intended for use by practicing and pre-service vocational education administrators. (A preliminary report documenting instrument design and development and pilot testing is available--see note.) Discussion concerns revisions suggested by pilot test participants, solicitation of field test participants (39 vocational education administrators), and feedback and followup. A section is devoted to development of a feedback format capable of providing summary information to the individual user. Appendixes, amounting to approximately two-thirds of the report, include (1) Staff Development Planning Sheet, (2) Staff Development Needs Assessment for Vocational Education Administrators Instruments, (3) Field Test Information Sheet and Questionnaires, (4) Sample Detailed Feedback Data, (5) Summary Feedback Information, (6) Summary Feedback Computation Rules and Guidelines, and (7) Field Test Feedback and Process Evaluation Form.
