Needs analysis: Part 5
Needs analysis: comments on discussion and thinking points.
I use this form in almost every situation - in needs analysis during level test interviews, in one-to-one, first classes, and for students to interview each other in pairs or group classes. With group classes, we go through the whole form first brainstorming a couple of possible questions for each section and writing the relevant question words (but not the whole questions) on the board.
I think this form is too detailed and time-consuming to give as a written needs analysis, but I also find that a needs analysis where students only need to tick boxes doesn’t work as students tick away without thinking much about the options. I use this form mainly as a reminder to myself as I am conducting a needs analysis, but write the answers given on the Interview Form.
