Field Trials of Instruments Designed to Survey Problems in Schools.
Goffard, S. James; And Others
Reported is a field trial of instruments designed to identify problems in schools that may be treated by the joint effort of school personnel and mental health consultants to schools. Participants were 15 mental health consultants who attended a workshop and subsequently tried out the recommended procedures during the school year 1974 - 75, furnishing data and experiences from 20 different schools. Evaluated were the following instruments: The School Problem Area Survey--Staff, The School Problem Area Survey--Student (both of which are questionnaries), and The Demographic Information Form (a guide for an interview with a school principal). Presented in the text and in tabulated form are data on the schools and their reactions to the instruments, analysis of the data, and comparisons between observed and expected scores. Appended are items in the survey instruments (both student and staff forms) covering areas such as the following: school attractiveness, teacher-student relationships, school-community relationships, student problems, administrator problems, facility problems, and teacher problems.
