Needs Assessment Surveys: Do They Predict Attendance at Continuing Education Workshops?
Malmsheimer, Robert W.; German, Ren, H.
Journal of Extension, v40 n4 Aug 2002
Data from a continuing education needs assessment survey of 342 forest resource managers were compared with attendance records from workshops. Findings showed that only a small percentage of survey respondents who indicate an interest in a topic will actually attend a program on that topic. Additional tools should be used to assess continuing education needs. (Contains 17 references.) (SK)
