Needs Assessment
Analysis and Prioritization (Book 4)

December 2009 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume four of The Needs Assessment Kit provides a good overview of how to: analyze two distinct types of data; pull them together in a meaningful way; and to derive priorities from the collation of the information that has been generated by the needs assessment. What should result is a stronger foundation for needs-related decisions and one that will stand the scrutiny of involved and questioning audiences. áThis text offers guidance not absolute solutions to help needs assessment committees (NACs) and their facilitators work through the complexities of analysis and subsequent prioritization.
