Academic Counseling: Content-Guide-Checklist for Three Interviews Per Semester. (Working Paper No. 1).
Demery, Marie
Interviews are the major tools of academic counseling at Northwestern State University (NSU) in Natchitoches, Louisiana. To enhance the specific application forms and the meaningful qualities of interviews, a counseling Content-Guide-Checklist has been constructed from NSU fall 1987 academic counseling interview reports and from a review of the literature. The Content-Guide-Checklist consists of 27 question-guides which reflect a selective summary of one-to-one interactions with approximately 115 Special Services students who were mainly first-generation college students and were from low-income families. To complement the assistance process of helping these students to help themselves succeed every semester and to graduate, this instrument will also flexibly strengthen the total interview structure of academic counseling. A review of the literature, based on 21 references, supports the validity and use of such a tool, with modifications according to the needs of students, at NSU and other institutions of higher education. The Content-Guide-Checklist, intended to be further developed in the 1988 spring semester interviews, is included. The major part of the document individually lists each of the 27 question-guides and provides relevant information from the literature review and from interviews to support the topic. (Author/NB)
