CHANGES IN SCHOOLS WHICH DO AND DO NOT SEND STAFF MEMBERS TO TRAINING INSTITUTES IN COUNSELING.
RUNKEL, PHILIP J.; AND OTHERS
DATA DERIVED FROM THREE STUDIES WERE USED IN ANALYSES OF (1) SELECTED SECONDARY SCHOOL TEST PRACTICES AND ATTITUDES AND (2) THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAINING RECEIVED IN SUMMER GUIDANCE INSTITUTES FOR TEACHERS AND COUNSELORS. TWO OF THE THREE STUDIES WERE PREVIOUS COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECTS--CRP 509, "THE USE OF TEST RESULTS," AND CRP 702, "EFFECTS ON THE USE OF TESTS BY TEACHERS TRAINED IN A SUMMER INSTITUTE." THE THIRD STUDY (THE PRESENT ONE) DEALS WITH 50 ILLINOIS SCHOOLS WHICH DID NOT SEND PERSONNEL TO THE ILLINOIS SUMMER INSTITUTE OF 1959. HIGH SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, GUIDANCE COUNSELORS, AND TEACHERS IN THIS HYPOTHETICAL GROUP BECAME A CONTROL IN WHICH TESTING ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES WERE COMPARED TO THE TWO PREVIOUS STUDIES. IMPLICATIONS WERE THAT ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE TESTING AND COUNSELING ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS COULD BE POSITIVELY AFFECTED BY (1) INTENSIVE FACULTY FAMILIARIZATION PROGRAMS AND (2) MORE EFFECTIVE PREPARATION AND INDOCTRINATION OF FACULTY MEMBERS WHO ATTEMPT TO INSTITUTE EDUCATIONAL CHANGE.
