needs assessment
Needs Assessment
  • What is the learning problem or opportunity?
  • Software Engineers in the industry with 1-5 years of experience do not have the fundamental training to properly design web applications using the Enterprise Java Platform.
  • 2. What is currently available?
  • A search of the top bachelor and masters computer science programs showed that only introductory Java and Enterprise Java programming classes are available for students.
  • What should be available?
  • An advanced Enterprise Java Platform design and programming training class needs to be put in place to teach Software Engineers how to model and design the Presentation Tier of a web application.
  • 4. Explain the gap analysis between what is available and what should be available.
  • College students are only taught the Java platform fundamentals, which does not prepare the student properly for entry level programming positions in the IT or Software Engineering industry.
  • What is your recommended solution for filling the gap?
  • Prepare a 1 hour training class that will demonstrate to the Software Engineer how to properly model and design the Presentation Tier of a web application targeted for the Enterprise Java Platform.
