Performance Appraisal Guidelines for Student Services Personnel.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This handbook is designed to assist local school systems in establishing and implementing an appropriate and effective appraisal system for student services professionals. The handbook includes job functions and competencies mandated by the North Carolina State Board of Education for three student service areas, suggested types of evaluative data and methods for collecting the data, performance appraisal procedures, and sample forms and instruments to assist in data collection. While accountability is an obvious and required aspect of employee performance appraisal, this handbook fosters a performance appraisal orientation that facilitates professional growth of the employee through supportive training, mentoring and supervision. A brief historical perspective on evaluation of student services professionals, basic considerations in evaluation, measures of effectiveness, the performance appraisal process, and suggested criteria for rating scale decisions are discussed. A performance appraisal instrument, sample evidence, suggested data collection methods by competencies, and sample forms and criteria are provided for each category of student services professionals: school counselors, school psychologists, and school social workers .
