Motivational and Self-Imagery Development Component, Elementary Counseling Project: Final Evaluation Report.
The goal of the Elementary Counseling Project is to assist pupils to function more effectively socially, academically, and personally in their social environment. Specifically, the project seeks to improve the level of reading achievement as well as the personal and social behavior of selected pupils in the school setting. During the 1983-84 school year, 13 counselors carried out a variety of activities in 14 Chapter 1 eligible schools. The program was evaluated in terms of four specific objectives: (1) pupils who receive treatment will demonstrate a significant increase in reading achievement; (2) pupils who receive treatment will demonstrate improvement in classroom behavior; (3) a range of counseling services will be provided for pupils and the school community; and (4) at least two inservice sessions will be provided to program personnel. Data for evaluation were collected from five sources: Metropolitan Achievement Tests, Devereux Elementary School Behavior Rating Scale II, a pupil census, counselor activity logs, and inservice evaluations.
