Educational Needs Assessment for the Pacific Region, 1993-1994.
Pacific Region Educational Lab., Honolulu, HI.
This needs assessment survey is the update of one conducted in the Pacific region in 1992. Results were intended to help the Pacific Region Educational Laboratory make decisions about the educational needs of children in the Pacific region. Nine general educational areas, with 34 needs, were defined and presented in questionnaire form. The needs assessment questionnaire was completed by 1,046 individuals from 9 states and nations in the Pacific (excluding Hawaii). Respondents included teachers, secondary school and university students, principals, district and central administrators, and community members, including parents. While there were slight differences among the nine entities, professional development, systemic reform, and resources and information acquisition were generally recognized as the most important areas for education in the Pacific region. The most progress was generally thought to have been made in professional development; governance, management, and planning; and curriculum and instruction. Use of technology, helping at-risk youth, and resource and information acquisition were considered the areas in most need of attention. The questionnaire is appended. (Contains 42 figures, 58 tables, and 12 references.) (SLD)
