An Operational Definition of Vocational Counseling in Indiana/Instrument Development. Final Report.
New Educational Directions, Crawfordsville, IN.
A project was conducted (1) to obtain an operational definition of vocational guidance as it is practiced in Indiana's secondary schools, (2) to establish a model vocational guidance program as defined by panels of Hoosier practitioners, and (3) to develop an objective, self-administered instrument designed to assess movement toward the model vocational guidance program. In the first of two phases of the project, 174 Indiana secondary school counselors were interviewed regarding the vocational guidance services they provide. In phase 2 practitioners from vocational education and guidance and counselor education were used to identify vocational guidance program functions and means for providing vocational guidance services. Products of the project included the framework for a model vocational guidance program, an outline for organizing comprehensive vocational guidance, planning that includes all service deliverers, and checklists for assessing the existence and quality of vocational guidance services.
