An Evaluation of Counseling and Related Services in New York State Two-Year Colleges.
Hedlund, Dalva E.
A questionnaire measuring (1) the perceived evaluation of 23 student personnel services, (2) estimates of the relative frequency of selected student problems, and (3) opinions about counseling was administered to randomly selected samples of public two-year college faculty, students, and counselors. An instrument to measure the performance of specific counseling activities was administered to counselors, and data pertaining to work experience, educational background, and present professional duties were collected. Information about participating two-year colleges was also collected. The amount of student personnel services and the amount of counseling services available, measured by a ratio of staff to students, does have a strong positive effect on the proportion of students completing a program of study. Reasons for the high attrition rates of two-year college students were noted. These were largely problems which could be alleviated by adequate counseling and student personnel services. (Author)
