McMahon, George; Griffith, Catherine; Mariani, Melissa; Zyromski, Brett
Journal of College Access, v3 n2 Article 3 p8-27 Jul 2017
Recent demands from educators and policymakers require school counselors to ensure that students are college and career ready. In this 10-year content analysis of peer-reviewed research, investigators sought to review and describe the available intervention research designed to improve post-secondary success. Ten (n = 10) articles published between 2007-2016 met the inclusion criteria and were coded across the dimensions of project leadership, program goals, and research rigor. All ten intervention studies identified were implemented in high school settings, and five of the ten were large-scale, multi-modal collaborative interventions. None of the articles were published in counseling journals, and various levels of rigor were represented across the studies. Implications for researchers and school counselors are discussed.
