Frace, Kristen
ProQuest LLC, Ed.S. Dissertation, Marshall University
The Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) is a system used by school psychologists and other professionals to evaluate the effectiveness of their interventions and services they provide by assessing student outcome data. The Marshall University Summer Enrichment Program (MUSEP) utilized the GAS to determine the effectiveness of the school psychology practicum students and its program. This study looks at the effectiveness of graduate students within seven teams and the services they provided to children during the 2008 MUSEP. Results of the t-test indicated that 74% of children made significant gains in their specified academic and behavior goals. A UNIANOVA and a Kruskal-Wallis test were run with results indicating there were no statistically significant differences between teams.
