Comprehensive Guidance Results-Based Evaluation: Developing a Practical Approach.
Maliszewski, Stan J.; Mackiel, John J.
Results-based evaluation and assessment of guidance and counseling is a difficult task. How to best evaluate whether the comprehensive guidance program was getting the intended results became an issue for Omaha Public Schools. They set about to draft a framework for measuring student behavior or learning resulting from activities associated with the four major components of comprehensive guidance (guidance curriculum; indirect planning; responsive services; system support). The evaluation framework included process-based, results-based, and data-gathering document components. Counselors from all grade levels were represented on the working committee. District administrators from the Department of Research and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction were also involved. Everyone, including teachers, parents, and students, had some input into the evaluation. Recommendations for pursuing results-based evaluation, as well as lessons learned through this evaluation, are included. (Contains 2 figures and 30 references.) (JDM)
