The Evaluation of Guidance-Counseling Service in Office of Education Region VII and the Development of an Effective Guidance-Counseling Program for Adult Basic Education Students: Report for Fiscal Years 1969-70.
Texas Univ., Austin. Extension Teaching and Field Service Bureau.
The Office of Education Guidance and Counseling Project for Adult Basic Education in Region VII includes five state programs, each run somewhat autonomously, in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, for which joint training preparations were made. In Phase I of the Project the central staff gathered statistical data on students, classes, and teachers from the individual states and summarized this data, and also drew together descriptive material on the guidance functions of various personnel in each state; in Phase II each state outlined a proposed guidance and counseling program which would be effective at the local level. During the first year (Fiscal Year 1969) a Guidance and Counseling Master Unit was prepared, using audiovisual and printed material. Summer training workshops for counselors, and the establishment of large and small pilot centers in each state, are now part of the project. A questionnaire has been designed to be administered to guidance personnel and to adult basic education students, in order to attempt to pinpoint elements which increase the likelihood of student success in adult basic education programs. (Questionnaire is included.) (mf)
