Accountability: Process and Product.
Bingham, William C., Ed.
Three speakers from the Rutgers Guidance Conference explore facets of the concept of accountability, including why it enjoys its present popularity, how it has developed, how it applies to guidance programs, and how it is measured. Accountability has a variety of functions in a school system. The speakers cite its possible use as a means for school systems to gain lost confidence and support, as a basis to new program designs (such as a career development program which changes a counselor's responsibilities from a major emphasis on direct services to students to the role of resource agent to other staff members), or as a means to evaluate school guidance programs. What to measure and how to evaluate constitute difficulties in applying the concept of accountability to guidance situations. (Author/LAA)
