Profile Counseling.
Jeffs, George A.
Purposes of this investigation were to encourage realism of student self-evaluation and to offer parents an overview of their child's test results. Profile sheets containing each student's test scores and academic grades were presented to 607 sophomore class members and their parents in separate sessions. Sessions consisted of an explanation, interpretation, and application of test scores. An 11-item questionnaire concerned with the value of the profile sheet was distributed to 373 randomly selected students and all parents. Hypotheses tested were: (1) discussing both test results and educational and occupational goals with students simultaneously will help them better understand the relationship between several variables connected with school and occupational aspiration, and (2) discussing the same items with parents will give them similar opportunities for realistic appraisal of their offspring's potential. Both hypotheses were accepted. Profile sheets should stimulate introspection not before available to the student, and assist in crystalizing future goals. (Author/CJ)
