A Survey of Student and Counselor Perceptions of the Emphasis Placed on Specific Counselor Functions in Michigan Community Colleges.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The objectives of this study were to obtain responses from students and counselors (in Michigan Community Colleges) to the following questions: (1) which functions do counselors feel receive enough or too much emphasis? (2) which functions do students feel receive enough or too much emphasis? (3) which functions do counselors feel need more emphasis? (4) which functions do students feel need more emphasis? (5) which functions listed do counselors feel are not counselor functions? and (6) which functions listed do students feel are not emphasized at all? The questionnaires for counselors were similar to those intended for student use, with 35 and 30 items respectively. Results showed that counselors were more concerned with promoting coordination among faculty, students, and administration, and with conducting surveys for strengthening student services. Students felt that a greater emphasis was needed on recommendations on scholastic programs and on consultation concerning career plans, educational goals, and probable chances for achieving them. Lists of both counselor responses and student responses conclude this study. (KJ)
