Prepare a needs survey (questionnaire) of 10 or more teachers

2016-2017 Regional Educator Workforce Reports are an additional resource beyond your text that could provide you with more ideas about survey questions.  The following is a brief outline of information covered in the 2016-2017 Regional Educator Workforce Reports, which are broken down by regions in the state.

You can see these, by region, in your Moodle Shell.

It looks as though the State Department of Education has restricted access to more recent reports.  For those, one needs a username and password for access.  This list is only a guide, and you may decide there are other, or additional topics, that could help to identify organizational needs for your school.

Firstly, teacher Certification Status (Out-of-Field and Uncertified)

Secondly, highest Sending Preparation Programs

Thirdly, teachers Prepared Through Believe and Prepare (Alternative Certification Programs)

Fourthly, transitional Student Growth Data (Value-Added Data) for Certified and Uncertified Teachers

Further, Average Teacher Compensation

Additionally, average School Leader Compensation

Finally, retaining, Promoting, and Granting Tenure

Part Two

After completing analysis of the questionnaire survey, the candidate will determine whether certain aspects are positive or negative.

Firstly, prepare the presentation of the results of your survey on a spreadsheet.

Secondly, group the identified needs into emerging themes.

Thirdly, Identify if it is a positive or negative need by a check in the appropriate column.  Positive needs are things that may be going well, yet still be reinforced to improve even further.  Negative needs are things that are not going well, yet can still be refined to improve results.

Part Three

Each candidate will prepare a written Human Resources Presentation paper assessing human resources needs for your school.  The purpose of the presentation paper is to identify needs and research ways to improve the identified needs.  Here are some things to consider as you decide which positive need(s) should be reinforced and which negative need(s) should be refined:

·         What component(s) of your survey had the highest rating?  What evidences, or lack thereof, could be documented and cited to make such a determination?  Be specific – Why would you want to focus on this particular positive need in your school?

o   What other sources of data support the results identified by your survey (school performance reports, summaries, documented photos, qualitative survey results, notes, agendas, documents, etc.)?

·         What component(s) of your survey had the lowest rating?  Also, what evidences, or lack thereof, could be documented and cited to make such a determination?  Be specific – Why would you want to focus on this particular negative need in your school?

o   What other sources of data support the results identified by your survey (school performance reports, summaries, documented photos, qualitative survey results, notes, agendas, documents, etc.)?

Choose 1-3 lower rated components identified by your survey as topics to frame research analysis.  Also, choose 1-3 higher rated components identified by your survey as topics to frame research analysis.  Investigate what scholars articulate as better practice or ways to improve current human resources conditions in your school.

Firstly, What do researchers tell us about the components identified?

Secondly, Why do these components sometimes (often?) exist in schools?

Thirdly, What will happen if the components are not improved (use research)?

Fourthly, What are the better practices one could implement and follow to correct, modify, or improve current human resources conditions (use research)?

Finally, Reflect on what you have learned about Kotter’s Change Process.  Briefly describe your recommendations about how you would proceed with improving human resources conditions in your school.
