Postsecondary Business and Industry Needs Assessment Model. A Model Package to Assess the Education and Training Needs of Business, Industry, and Labor. Research and Development Series No. 223.
Nasman, Leonard O.
This document outlines a systematic approach to the process of reviewing employer and employee training needs so that postsecondary institutions can work closely with business, industry, and labor (BIL) to meet these needs. It also contains sections that review the rationale and development processes that provided a basis for the model. The model is meant to fill the need for a cost-effective, locally focused data collection system that will provide a basis for a postsecondary institution to make decisions relative to pre- and post-employment education and training programs. The document is organized into three sections. Section 1 presents the BIL Needs Assessment Model, which contains a systematic design for a needs assessment project along with details regarding the procedures to be followed. In section 2, background information relative to the development of the model is presented and the pilot testing phase of the project is reviewed. Section 3 contains a copy of the original document presented to the technical review panel. This document presents the assumptions, rationale, and the review of existing models that provided the foundation on which the BIL Needs Assessment Model was built. Also contained in section 3 are the computer programs developed for the analysis of data generated by the employer survey. (KC)
