Needs Assessment

pic_NeedsAssessmentA needs assessment is useful when stakeholders feel that a change is needed or there is a vague or messy problem that needs to be solved. A needs assessment employs  a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques, such as focus groups, interviews, group processes, and surveys to draw a wealth of information from key informants, staff members, students, community and school leaders, and the full spectrum of other stakeholders.  Needs assessments can also provide the information necessary for grant applications.

By systematically analyzing and summarize this data, the gap can be closed between “what is” and “what should be.”
