The setting will take place in a virtual meeting. These will be online in a secured school domain setting using Zoom meetings, where I will conduct the interview questions for administrators and teachers. These two administrators supervise in the preschool setting. The two teachers are teaching in the preschool setting. I will be emailing a survey to two to five parents who have preschool students. Each interview will be thirty minutes. The studies are fifteen questions. There are fifteen questions in the ACE study questionnaire for the two to five parents to complete.
“To conduct a needs analysis, I will need at least two administrators, two teachers, and 2 to 5 parents.” “This will allow the Student Researcher to accurately catalog needs from each category of participants.” so the adults will frame the problem. There will be six responses, at least, which will be an adequate number of responses.
The proposed study will adopt a mixed-method research design. The study is focusing on a needs-based assessment, hence the selection of the method. The mixed methods research is vital since provides strengths that address the weaknesses presented in either qualitative or quantitative research (Gibson, 2017). Besides, the approach ensures an understanding of participants’ point of view while embedding findings to their experiences. Moreover, the method will ensure that there is improved evaluation since the limitations of a particular method are balanced by the strengths of the other (Queirós et al., 2017). There will be quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
