MICHIGAN'S SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS--A PROFILE ANALYSIS.
DUNN, JAMES A.
PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MICHIGAN SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS WERE STUDIED TO (1) DISCOVER LEVELS OF COMPETENCY, (2) OBTAIN DEMOGRAPHIC AND BASE LINE DATA, (3) ASSIST IN REEVALUATING THE DIAGNOSTICIAN PROGRAM. THE POPULATION, 209 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION (DPI) APPROVED DIAGNOSTICIANS AND 107 MEMBERS OF THE MICHIGAN SOCIETY OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS (MSSP), WERE SENT QUESTIONNAIRES. TABLES ARE PRESENTED OF (1) CHARACTERISTICS OF MSSP MEMBERS, (2) DPI DIAGNOSTICIANS, (3) A COMPARISON OF MSSP MEMBERS AND DIAGNOSTICIANS, AND (4) A COMPARISON OF DIAGNOSTICIANS AND NON-MSSP DIAGNOSTICIANS. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ALSO SENT TO MICHIGAN SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS IN SYSTEMS CONTAINING OVER 5,000 PUPILS TO ASSESS THEIR ATTITUDES ABOUT THE EMPLOYMENT OF SCHOOL DIAGNOSTICIANS. ONE OUT OF EVERY TWELVE SYSTEMS ELIGIBLE TO HIRE DIAGNOSTICIANS UNDER THE REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM WAS NOT INTERESTED IN DOING SO. HOWEVER, MICHIGAN EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR DIAGNOSTICIANS ARE CONSIDERED SOUND.
