Needs assessment | COUN 6626 – Research Methodology and Program Evaluation | Walden University

 **YOU MUST ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS IN THE ATTACHED WORKSHEET – DO NOT CREATE A SEPARATE PAPER**

As a counselor, you will individualize services for clients. It is important for you to understand how to conduct a needs assessment to help you know how to create new services that will meet the needs of your clients or the clients of an agency. Keep in mind that a needs assessment and program evaluation are not synonymous. A Needs Assessment will show you what services are needed for your clients, while a program evaluation will tell you whether services that have already been delivered were effective for your clients. You will dig deeper into program evaluations next week.

For this Assignment, you will review a case example of a needs assessment and make a recommendation for program development based on the data that was collected.
