Diagnostic evaluation of needs in an environmental education center through data multiple triangulation





Needs assessment, Data triangulation, Environmental education centers, Methodological advance


In this paper we try to show the importance involved implement needs assessment processes in order to establish prioritization of claims collected from the implementation of data multiple analytical triangulation processes. The experience has taken as a case study an environmental education center in the province of Granada (Spain) where it will develop an intervention program with people with sensory disabilities. The results obtained and validated with the multiple analytical triangulation strategy has favored the clustering and distribution of needs in large dimensions by the degree of agreement established through percentiles as cut-off marks and groupings of cluster analysis. In this way, we have inferred a first group of high priority corresponding to the Adaptation of Socio-environmental actions for Sensory Disabled. Secondly, we found a group of moderate priority and that could be identified with the Training and Sensitization of Sensory Disabled through Socio-environmental Actions. Finally, we contemplate a third group of low priority that we could call Design and Planning of Socio-Environmental Actions for Sensory Disabled. On the other hand, the fundamental contribution of this work has been to present results and conclusions truly combined with the objective of validating the previously exposed hierarchy of Socio-environmental needs.
