The Role of the Counselor Redefined. Behavior of Students Redefined.
Land, H. Kenneth; Allen, Richard F.
Since it is difficult to determine behavior categories for students in the North Carolina Advancement School, the Devereus Behavior Rating Scale was revised to fill this void. After analyzing results on the complete test, four factors were picked which seemed most descriptive of underachievers: aggression, alienation, anxiety, and activity. A total of 22 items were constructed consisting of the four behavior factors, the test was standardized, and is now being used successfully to identify potential male underachievers. The second paper discusses a change in the role of the counselor, mainly that the teachers be given in-service training to learn the approaches of the counselor and then deal with the emotional aspects of learning using these techniques. In turn the counselor can keep abreast of the specific problems encountered by the teacher with which he will ultimately deal. (Author/KJ)
