Conduct a Needs Assessment for Selected Business/Organization

The Critical Thinking assignments in this course build upon each other to help you complete the final Portfolio Project, an instructional design blueprint for a business or organization. In this step, you will complete a needs assessment for the business or organization you have selected and profiled.

Your needs assessment must include data collection measures and outcomes for the following four stages:

  • Stage 1: What are the business/organization needs?
    • Measure: (What measure is used?)
    • Outcome: (What is the forecasted ROI?)
  • Stage 2: What are the performance needs?
    • Measure: (What measure is used?)
    • Outcome: (What are the knowledge and skills needed for success in the business/organization? To what degree are they currently being met?)
  • Stage 3: What are the learning needs?
    • Measure: (What measure is used?)
    • Outcome: (What knowledge and skills need to be improved through instruction?)
  • Stage 4: What are the learner needs?
    • Measure: (What measure is used?)
    • Outcome: (For example: Who are the learners? How many are there? Is the group multi-generational? What is the cultural make-up? Are they traditional or nontraditional learners?)

Continue using the template that you began in Module 2 to organize your findings. Your final product should be well written and conform with the CSU Global Writing Center (Links to an external site.). Use at least two to three sources to support your observations and analysis. The CSU Global Library is a great place to find these sources. Submit your completed template for grading.
