Sharp, W. Harry; Marra, Herbert A.
The purpose of this study was: (1) to determine whether clients seen at the Division of Counseling and Testing were representative of the total student population, and (2) to study the relationship between client descriptive variables, classification of client problem areas, and number of counseling sessions within the group seen at the Division of Counseling and Testing only. The sources of data were: (1) record form filled out by each client when he comes to see a counselor, (2) American College Testing Programs (ACT) test results, required of all freshmen, and (3) diagnostic classifications made by each counselor concerning the client's main problem. Results showed that the client sample differed from the student population significantly only in terms of age. The second aspect of the study showed that for the variables including college, ACT composite score, campus resident, and sex; no difference was detected between either classification or number of interviews. Age, class, marital status, and sex produced significant relationships between either classification or number of interviews. (KJ)
