A STUDY OF PRE-REGISTRATION COUNSELING.
PEARCE, FRANK C.
TO DETERMINE THE VALUE OF PRE-REGISTRATION COUNSELING, THIS STUDY ATTEMPTED TO RATE STUDENT ASSESSMENT OF (1) HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS COUNSELOR, (2) THE APPROPRIATENESS OF HIS CHOICE OF MAJOR, (3) THE SUITABILITY OF HIS SCHEDULE, AND (4) HIS PREPARATION FOR REGISTRATION. SEVEN HUNDRED SIXTY-ONE STUDENTS (8.5 PERCENT OF THE STUDENT BODY) WERE CHOSEN AT RANDOM FROM THOSE WHO REGISTERED BETWEEN THE SECOND AND FOURTH WEEKS. THEY FILLED OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE SHOWING THEIR DEGREE OF SATISFACTION WITH VARIOUS ASPECTS OF RAPPORT, ADVISEMENT, AND COUNSELING. THIRTY-THREE COUNSELORS ALSO FILLED OUT THE QUESTIONNAIRE TO INDICATE THE IMPORTANCE THEY ATTACH TO EACH SEGMENT OF THEIR FUNCTIONS. THE COUNSELORS' RATING OF IMPORTANCE WAS COMPARED WITH STUDENT RANKING OF HOW WELL THE FUNCTIONS WERE CARRIED OUT. STUDENT DEGREES OF SATISFACTION WERE CORRELATED WITH AGE, CHOICE OF MAJOR, DURATION OF COUNSELING SESSION, AND SEVERAL OTHER INFLUENTIAL FACTORS AND, ALTHOUGH FOUND TO VARY CONSIDERABLY, WERE GENERALLY FAVORABLE. THE GREATEST FLAW IN THE PRE-REGISTRATION APPEARED TO BE A SHORTAGE OF TIME FOR THE INTERVIEWS. THE RECOMMENDATIONS, THEREFORE, INCLUDE SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS FOR ALLEVIATING THE FAULT. (HH)
