Multiple Measures and Needs Assessment.
Lewellen, James R.
This document presents instructor's materials for a unit on use of tests and measures for conducting needs assessment. It also contains material for 11 transparencies and 4 exhibits (list of 20 informal measures; tips on selecting and using tests; tips on selecting measures; and tips on conducting the interview). It is assumed that needs assessment is conducted for individual students, grade levels, individual schools, professional staff, service personnel, or community residents. It is also expected that a needs assessment uses a variety of formal and informal measures. Topics include: (1) formal assessment procedures (norm-referenced achievement tests, group or individual diagnostic tests, and criterion-referenced tests); (2) informal assessment procedures, such as teacher-developed tests; and (3) quasi-formal techniques (interviews and survey questionnaires). Sample survey questions are included in the transparencies. An evaluation form for this presentation is also included. (GDC)
