Report on Counseling Evaluation Guidelines Developed by the Ad Hoc Counseling Task Force and Endorsed by the Illinois Community College Board.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
Three years of cooperative effort by participating Illinois community colleges and the Ad Hoc Counseling Task Force resulted in the 1977 approval, by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), of a position paper on comprehensive counseling services and in the endorsement of guidelines in four student service areas. The ICCB supports counseling as a full partner, with instruction, in the educational development of students, and acknowledges the following professional activities as part of a comprehensive counseling program: (1) individual and goal counseling related to educational and career goals of the student; (2) academic advising; (3) human development instruction (curricular and/or co-curricular); (4) consultation and collaboration with students and faculty; (5) interest, ability, and needs assessment; and (6) appropriate referrals. Additionally, the ICCB emphasizes that counseling must be evaluated and provides guidelines for the evaluation of career planning and placement, of counseling, of academic advisement, and of student assessment and academic placement. The guidelines are expressed in terms of the purpose and goals of each of these processes, and include definitions of components and questions to be used to assess achievement of goals. (AYC)
