Training School Counselors in Program Evaluation.
Today’s school counselors are faced with demands to demonstrate the impact and effectiveness of their counseling programs. Twenty-eight school counselors from a large Southwestern school district participated in a program evaluation training workshop designed to help them develop evaluation skills necessary for demonstrating program accountability. The majority of participants expressed high levels of interest in evaluating their programs but believed they needed more training in evaluation procedures. The authors discuss implications and make suggestions for future training and research on program evaluation in school counseling. *********
