The Performance Evaluation of Guidance Counsellors. (Program No. 115.0).
This paper describes the development and use of a guidance counselor evaluation form created by guidance counselors working in French language secondary schools in Ottawa, Canada. The need for such a form, which requires joint evaluation by the counselor and his department head or principal, is examined, and the historical background leading to the development of this form is reviewed. The bilingual form is described as an evaluation tool which enables counselors to evaluate all aspects of their work and to grow personally and professionally. Four premises on which the form is based are discussed: (1) the work can be evaluated; (2) evaluation is a part of development; (3) the evaluation of a counselor is not the evaluation of the department; and (4) the evaluation of a counselor must be both flexible and structured. The Guidance Counsellor Performance Review Form (English and French) is included along with a list of rating scale definitions and a guideline for the evaluation. This guideline is presented in outline form and covers the areas of counseling, student growth, group work, personal growth, professional development, contributions to school life, and administrative duties and obligations. Instructions are also given for a narrative summary and for teacher and reviewer comments. (NRB)
