Assignment: Analyze Needs Analysis Case Study



Needs assessment is typically the initial starting point for many ID projects. For this assignment, you will conduct a needs assessment based on a case study. Create a presentation to share your findings from analyzing the needs assessment presented in the Needs Analysis Case Study (located in Books and Resources). In your presentation, be sure to:

  • Identify the problems and issues within the case study using the guiding questions provided throughout the case.
  • Categorize each problem or issue as instructional or non-instructional. Remember that you are searching for instructional problems. However, not all problems are instructional in nature. Sometimes, the problem cannot be solved by the systematic design of instruction.
  • Suggest a potential solution to each instructional problem and issue you identified; note that case studies often do not have easy solutions and often there are no right or wrong answers. Your explanation of the answers to the questions and the potential solution is what constitutes the best answer.
  • Support your suggestions with information from this week’s resources or other credible sources.

Length: 8-10 slides, with 100- to 150-word explanation in the speaker notes section of each slide

References: minimum of 4 credible resources.

Incorporate appropriate narration, animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists. Review the “Creating a Successful PowerPoint Presentation” document in the resources for additional assistance in completing this assignment.

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.
