An Evaluation of Guidance Services in Scarborough Schools. Internal Evaluation Report No. 6.
Dilling, H. J.
This document contains an internal evaluation of guidance services in Scarborough, Ontario schools undertaken to achieve the following: (1) to investigate what guidance services should be provided to Scarborough students (by reviewing curriculum documents, surveying involved persons, and reviewing the success of the service); and (2) to assess how well guidance services are being provided (by relating services to objectives, examining usage of services, and surveying parent and teacher attitudes). A chapter on the research plan presents the purposes of the study, a definition of the survey population, an explanation of the questionnaire development, plans for data collection and analysis, and a description of data reporting. The three chapters of evaluation results focus on return rate of questionnaires, secondary school guidance objectives, and secondary school guidance services. Evaluation of guidance services in the Scarborough elementary schools is addressed in a separate chapter which covers objectives, activities related to objectives, a discussion of elementary school student needs, and a survey of attitudes of grade eight students toward grade nine programs. The final chapter contains summaries of results, conclusions, and recommendations for guidance services. Appendices contain a summary of guidance services; cover letters; tables of comments; and nine questionnaires for students, guidance counselors, parents, teachers, supervisory officers, trustees, and the business community. Thirty-three data tables are included. (NRB)
