Students' Reported Contact with and Perception of the Role of High School Counselors: An Examination of the ASCA Role Standard Domains
Coogan, Theresa; DeLucia-Waack, Janice
Journal of School Counseling, v5 n5 2007
A random convenience sample was compiled using 430 undergraduate students enrolled at a large northeastern university. Reported contact with school counselors in the three ASCA domains (academic, career, personal/social) and effectiveness ratings were examined. Female students reported significantly more contact only on career topics than males. Urban schools reported a significantly higher student to counselor ratio than suburban or rural schools, but lower ratings of effectiveness only than suburban schools. The perception of school counselors providing career assistance more than personal/social and academic assistance was reflected both in contact and perceptions of the role of school counselors.
