Exploring the Use of Computer Simulation to Evaluate the Implementation of Problem-Solving Consultation
Newell, Markeda
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v20 n3 p228-255 2010
The purpose of this study was to examine how school psychologists implemented the problem-solving consultation process within a computer-simulated school environment. Four school psychologists were recruited to complete three simulated consultation cases. The school environment was computer generated and all of the teachers and target students (clients) were computer generated. A qualitative case study design coupled with interviews was used in this study. Three themes emerged from the data analysis including (a) behavioral approach to problem conceptualization, (b) individualized approach to intervention design, and (c) minimal attention to plan evaluation. Implications for problem-solving consultation training as well as use of computer simulation are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
