This assignment gives you the opportunity to assess the community experiencing the condition/problem. This section includes information such as, but not limited to, the following.

  1. Description of the community experiencing the condition in terms of geography, citizens (age, gender, ethnicity, income, etc.) values, beliefs, stories, myths, and any other feature you feel is important. The assessment can be of a geographic or interest based community, or combination of both.
  2. What evidence exists that the community is experiencing the condition/problem, e.g., stories in the media, testimony before committees, expert opinion, beliefs, comparisons to national norms, etc.
  3. What are the needs of the community, as it relates to addressing the selected condition/problem? What are the barriers? Is there a capacity issue or efficacy issue? What about the ‘built environment’? Is there an issue there?
  4. What stakeholders are associated with this condition/problem in the community? Discuss each stakeholder's inclination for and against intervening in the condition/problem.
  5. If you had the time and money to actually conduct this needs assessment, which data quantitative AND qualitative collection methods would you use and why?
