Report of the School Guidance Program Study in Region VII, West Virginia Schools. Region VII Pace and Secondary School Cooperative Project.
Green, Donald A.; Hummel, Dean L.
The study begins with an elaboration of the standards and components of an effective guidance program, which served as a reference point for the study. Three sources of data were used: (1) Student Guidance Questionnaire which was administered to a ten per cent sample of all children in grades seven through twelve in the region; (2) the Guidance Resource Inventory completed by staff members in the region's 67 schools, and the School Testing Program Inventory which incorporates the basic criteria for a sound program; and (3) a structured Interview Form used to confirm information collected by the previously mentioned instruments. Students, teachers, administrators, parents and counselors were interviewed. All instruments are included, data presented, and numerous conclusions drawn. Recommendations based on the findings were made toward the goal of their maximal utilization. The data were interpreted in the light of generally accepted standards for guidance in the schools. (TL)
