DEVELOPING ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENTS FOR MEASURING THE EFFECTS OF GROUP COUNSELING IN THE TEACHER-EDUCATION PROGRAM AT WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY. FINAL REPORT.
MAY, FRANK B.; MCDOUGALL, WILLIAM P.
THE CENTRAL PURPOSE OF THIS RESEARCH WAS TO SELECT PREDICTIVE INSTRUMENTS FOR EVALUATING GROUP COUNSELING SESSIONS DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE MENTAL HEALTH OF PROSPECTIVE ELEMENTARY TEACHERS. A SUBSIDIARY PURPOSE WAS TO FORMULATE A PROPOSAL FOR A GROUP COUNSELING PROGRAM. UTILIZING Q-SORT PEER AND INSTRUCTOR RATINGS ON MENTAL HEALTH (SELF-ACTUALIZATION) AS CRITERION VARIABLES, NUMEROUS STANDARDIZED AND NEWLY CONSTRUCTED INSTRUMENTS CONTAINING CONCOMITANTS OF MENTAL HEALTH WERE TESTED ON SEVERAL GROUPS OF PROSPECTIVE ELEMENTARY TEACHERS AT WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY. CORRELATIONAL ANALYSIS INDICATED THAT THE CALIFORNIA PSYCHOLOGICAL INVENTORY AND THE PERSONAL ORIENTATION INVENTORY CONTAINED NUMEROUS SUBTESTS PREDICTIVE OF THE CRITERION VARIABLES. A TEST OF ADAPTIVE FLEXIBILITY WAS ALSO FOUND TO BE PREDICTIVE. AN ATTITUDE TOWARD TEACHER EDUCATION INVENTORY WAS JUDGED USEFUL ON THE BASIS OF CONSTRUCT VALIDITY AND HIGH RELIABILITY. THE CRITERION MEASURES THEMSELVES BEING HIGHLY RELIABLE WERE JUDGED TO BE USEFUL IN EVALUATING THE EFFECTS OF GROUP COUNSELING OF PROSPECTIVE AND BEGINNING ELEMENTARY TEACHERS. A PROPOSED PLAN FOR GROUP COUNSELING OF PROSPECTIVE AND BEGINNING ELEMENTARY TEACHERS WAS SUBSEQUENTLY FORMULATED AND SUBMITTED TO N.I.M.H. THE RESEARCH ON ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENTS AND THE CONSULTATION WITH VARIOUS RESEARCHERS WERE REFLECTED IN THE PROPOSAL. (AW)
