Competencies in Assessment and Evaluation for School Counselors.
Elmore, Patricia
This chapter presents eight competencies approved by the American School Counselor Association and the Association for Assessment in Counseling that provide the knowledge and skills school counselors need in the areas of assessment and evaluation. Because effectiveness in assessment and evaluation is critical to effective counseling, these competencies are important for school counselor education and practice. Although consistent with existing Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) standards, they focus on competencies of individual counselors rather than content of counselor education programs. Counselor and assessment educators can use them as a guide in the development and evaluation of school counselor preparation programs, workshops, or other continuing education programs. They may also be used by school counselors to evaluate their own professional development and their need for continuing education. (JDM)
