The Utilization of Consumer Surveys in Assigning Priorities to the Allocation of School Psychological Services.
Vance, Hubert; And Others
A survey was undertaken of 53 school leaders and 16 administrators of Special Education as to the functions of a school psychologist to determine what type of psychological services should be given priority. The scale contained 46 clearly and legitimately defined functions which school psychologists might perform within a school district. Evidence from the study indicated that it is possible to devise an instrument which can have high reliability value when used to match school psychological resources and priorities of functions for the psychologists and the consumer (school). The study suggests implications for trainers of school psychologists and employers of school psychologists (consumer/school). (Author)
