The Appraisal of School Guidance and Counseling Services in the Urban Schools.
Barnes, Keith D.
This resource booklet contains an operational appraisal instrument for use in evaluating the program effectiveness of secondary school guidance and counseling activities. It first presents criteria for exemplary guidance programs, which form the basis for the evaluation. Program areas appraised by this instrument include philosophy and objectives, guidance staff (professional, related professional, counselor-support, and clerical personnel), program (responsibilities, appraisal services, personal-social and educational-occupational information services, consultative and referral services, orientation and educational placement, counseling services, program development), facilities and provisions, and financial support. A scoring and weighing sheet is provided. Users obtain a quantitative measurement of a guidance and counseling program's strengths and identify areas in need of improvement. (The study that developed this document is reported in CE 024 197.) (YLB)
