Abstract This study is concerned with developing a weighted index that is capable of discriminating among competing learner needs for the purpose of equitable resource allocation. The methodology used is a variant of the Delphi technique, which uses judgments of professionals within the field as the data base. The study is a four-stage, national one and is concerned with the language needs of Australia's school-age population with non-English speaking backgrounds. Stages 1, 2, and 3 are concerned with the development of an index of need, and Stage 4 with the validation of the emergent index.
