A Needs Assessment of Fifth Grade Students in a Middle School.
Diemert, Amy
The transition from elementary school to middle school or junior high school can be exciting, stressful, scary, and fun all at once for young adolescents. The stress of this transition can either be diffused or augmented by school procedures for introducing these students to the school. In this study, a needs survey was given to a heterogeneous class of 23 fifth-graders in a middle school. It was found that social and procedural needs were considered the most important by the students, and lack of assistance from adults was perceived as highest for certain social needs. The results indicate that needs of early adolescents are not always adequately addressed during their transition to middle school. An appendix provides a copy of the student needs survey instrument. Contains 19 references. (MDM)
