A Quick Guide to Community Literacy Needs Assessments (N.D.)

The author begins by explaining that a community literacy needs assessment is a planning tool that measures the gap between present and desired capacity. Gathering this information is the first step in developing a strong program.

The author offers advice on identifying potential project partners in the community; developing a needs assessment strategy; and deciding how best to collect the information required.

The author notes that a needs assessment is a snapshot of a community at a particular time and communities are constantly in a state of change, so it is important to realize that the process will have to be repeated periodically.
