Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Counseling Services at a Selected Suburban High School.
Gianuzzi, Irma C.
In this study the counseling services of a suburban high school were evaluated. Counseling services were viewed as those normally available at a high school, namely, direction, advice, and guidance for academic, career, and personal matters. Specific research questions were guided by the individual questions on the two surveys that were distributed. High school seniors (N=96) completed the Counseling Services Assessment Blank. Teachers (N=70) completed a questionnaire which asked the number of contacts with a counselor; evaluation of the counselors; perception of the department; and dialogue responses. Most answers on both the student and the administrator/teacher questionnaires required the responses be given on a Likert-type scale ranging from 1 to 6. When the means were computed for all questions utilizing the Likert-type scale, all means on both surveys were above the average score of 3.0. Considering that all scores on both the student and the teacher questionnaires were above average, it can be concluded that the counseling services at the selected high school are effective in providing the services the students and teachers require. Based on some of the comments of both groups, there is still room for improvement. (ABL)
