Validation of Criteria for the Development and Evaluation of Career Guidance, Counseling, and Placement Programs. [and] Quality Career Guidance: Proposed Standards for Career Guidance, Counseling and Placement Programs; Part 4; What About Vocational Education?
Simkins, Lynda K.; McDougall, William P.
The Washington State University study focused on the validation of a set of 50 career guidance, counseling, and placement program standards by expert professionals (vocational and nonvocational administrators, counselors, counselor educators, vocational and nonvocational teachers, teacher educators, and members of the Washington State Advisory Council on Vocational Education). Data analysis was based on 307 completed surveys, approximately 68 percent of the original number sampled. Median values were reported as well as qualitative data indicating essential, very desirable, desirable, and nonessential categories. It was recommended that the set of criteria be implemented as a statewide model for quality career guidance, counseling, and placement programs. The accompanying booklet stresses the need for expanded services and includes a checklist of standards pertaining to the elements of program planning and development, organization and administration, staffing, program operations, and evaluation.
