A CLASSIFICATION OF THE GENERAL COLLEGE STUDENT PERSONNEL OFFICE CASE LOAD.
SCHELLER, THOMAS G.
THIS STUDY PRESENTS A PILOT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM FOR PERSONNEL OFFICE CASES, EASILY USED BY THE COUNSELORS AND SHOWING A BREAKDOWN OF SUCH ELEMENTS AS INTERVIEW CONTENT AND THE STUDENTS' REASONS FOR SEEKING COUNSELING. WORK DONE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI WAS USED AS AN OUTLINE FOR THE FINAL 2-DIMENSIONAL SYSTEM. DIMENSION I CLASSIFIES THE CONTENT OF INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEWS, COVERING THE TOPICS THAT GENERAL COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE LIKELY TO BRING UP IN AN INTERVIEW. AN APPENDIX SHOWS THESE CATEGORIES ON A CODE SHEET. DIMENSION II GIVES FOUR CLASSES OF CAUSAL FACTORS--(1) A STUDENTS' NEED FOR PARTICULAR INFORMATION, (2) HIS NEED TO KNOW THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF VARIOUS ITEMS OF INFORMATION, (3) HIS PERSONAL PROBLEM(S) OR (4) AN INTERPERSONAL PROBLEM OR CONFLICT. OTHER DATA COLLECTED ON HE CODE SHEET WERE (1) TIME SPENT IN EACH INTERVIEW, (2) REFERRAL SOURCE, (3) TYPE OF INTERVIEW (INDIVIDUAL, GROUP, OR DUAL), (4) NUMBER OF INTERVIEWS WITH EACH STUDENT, AND (5) THE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY CONTENT OF EACH INTERVIEW. ALTHOUGH THIS PILOT STUDY COVERED ONLY THE SPRING QUARTER 1966, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THE DATA COLLECTED WOULD VARY GREATLY FROM QUARTER TO QUARTER. A FOLLOWUP STUDY IS SUGGESTED ON THE STUDENT IMAGE OF THE STUDENT PERSONNEL OFFICE, HOW HE LEARNS OF ITS SERVICES, WHAT HE THINKS ITS FUNCTIONS ARE, AND HOW WELL HE THINKS THEY ARE PERFORMED. THIS DOCUMENT IS VOLUME 2, NUMBER 1 OF "THE GENERAL COLLEGE STUDIES, " 1965-66. (HH)
