Guide for the Appraisal of Counselors.
Maliszewski, Stan; Luther, Ann
Appraisal and continued improvement of counselor performance is a significant phase of the guidance program improvement process. School counselors must be able to: (1) deliver guidance curriculum for all students; (2) plan individually for each student; (3) respond to requests by students, parents, and teachers; and (4) plan and coordinate guidance-related activities. In order to sustain a statewide guidance program, an examination of the performance standards required of school counselors was undertaken. Part 1 of this report reviews the goals of a counselor appraisal. Part 2 discusses the appraisal participants and their roles. Part 3 contains several sections on the appraisal process including personal goals and student competencies; formal and informal observations; individual development plans; an appraisal summary; and the intervention process. Part 4 reviews the performance standards for five competencies: guidance curriculum; individual planning; response service; system support; and professional and personal qualities. These standards can be used for basic counselor appraisal and also serve as a guide for self-appraisal. Forms used for guidance planning, observations, and performance appraisal are included. (JDM)
