District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
The District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) Dissemination Project examined its dissemination procedures and devised a more effective system of sharing information germane to the improvement of practice with school system personnel. A questionnaire entitled "Information Needs and Uses" was prepared and distributed to school system personnel. The survey was designed to assess the need, flow and use of information intended to improve the dissemination practices of educators in the DCPS. The groups responding to the survey included classroom teachers, librarians, counselors, resource teachers, principals, and central and regional administrators. The questionnaire is reproduced in this document along with statistical analyses of the responses. The four areas covered by the survey were information needs and obtainment, professional sources for securing new ideas, use and value of information sources and assistance in job-related information seeking. Demographic information was also requested of all respondents. (Author/DWH)
