Evaluation of Guidance Objectives.
Mitchell, Richard J.
The counselor must identify measurable objectives in terms of what he does or in terms of the student's behavior to be changed. To implement the concept of evaluation, the counselor must identify his goals, specify the objectives, and determine ways to evaluate accomplishment of his goals and objectives. The important evaluative criterion in the procedure is the translation of the goals into behavioral terms. First, the counselor must identify areas that the guidance program must serve. The major areas are educational, social, and vocational. Within these areas, the services provided include counseling, evaluation, follow-up, group guidance, information, orientation, personal data, placement, referral, and research. Finally, the counselor must identify specific guidance objectives which state what the counselor or client must do to accomplish the task and must describe the specific criteria for measurement of achievement of the objectives.
