Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation will cover the Borich Needs Assessment Model as a tool for identify the training needs of extension educators, highlight results from a recent study focused on competencies related to evaluating extension activities, and demonstrate how this type of analysis can be incorporated into SPSS. 

The Borich Model has been used for decades to identify in-service training needs. This presentation will provide an overview of the model including conceptual underpinnings, typical instrument used, types of discrepancies measured, mean weighted discrepancy scores, and how the scores are used to identify the competencies most in need of being addressed via in-service training.

An example from a study, to be conducted in the near future, will highlight how the model works in practice. The study will focus on competencies related to evaluating extension activities and programs.

In addition, there will be a demonstration of how Borich weighted mean discrepancy scores can be automatically generated, and seamlessly by incorporated into SPSS menus, using syntax commands,  macro language, and the custom dialogue tool.
