This issue of Impact examines a variety of viewpoints, programs, issues, and concerns about accountability of guidance. Three articles are adaptations from speeches presented at the conference on Accountability and Pupil Personnel Work held at Michigan State University in the summer of 1971; they explore the importance of preserving "caring" capabilities that foster human growth while measuring guidance program outcomes, systematic counseling which provides a specified step-by-step approach to evaluating counseling effectiveness, and the measurement of student success as a prime indicator of the worth of a guidance program. Other articles examine programs now in practice; one providing a career ladder approach as well as an undergraduate competency-based program for guidance students, another exploring a performance-based certification program for counselors and counselor educators, and a third describing objectives for school guidance programs and instruments to assess how schools are meeting these objectives. Afinal article provides an overview of the need for accountability and the establishment of objectives with a checklist for the reader's use in his specific setting. (SES)
