Evaluation and Accreditation: Perceptions of Rehabilitation Counseling Students and Graduates.
Scorzelli, James F.
In accordance with the goals of the Rehabilitation Counselor Education (RCE) accreditation movement, the Council On Rehabilitation Education (CORE) contracted the research aspects of the accreditation project to the University of Wisconsin-Regional Rehabilitation Research Institute to develop a series of data gathering instruments to assess, objectively, the RCE programs that seek accreditation. These instruments included graduate and student questionnaires that were developed to evaluate important input, process and outcome variables. This paper is concerned with the results of these two respondent groups. Results indicate that students and graduates appear most satisfied with the clinical practicum experience and least satisfied with the inability of the curriculum to allow for specialization within the profession (administration, etc.). Opinions of graduates and current students were very similar, and the study clearly indicates that what students perceive as strengths and weaknesses in their training programs does not change once they leave school.
