Evaluation: Program + Personnel = Results

This page is designed to provide you with information and resources to more effectively evaluate a comprehensive guidance program. PowerPoint presentations videos, sample templates, and summaries of results based projects conducted by practicing professional school counselors are available to assist you in developing your own evaluation plan as required by MSIP.


Comprehensive Guidance Program Evaluation: Introduction

This presentation provides you with an overview of the evaluation process for comprehensive guidance and counseling programs--a process that includes program evaluation, personnel evaluation and results evaluation.

Program Evaluation: Determining the Level of Implementation

The first aspect of evaluation asks the question, "To what extent is the guidance and counseling program fully implemented?"   Fourth Cycle MSIP Standard 6.9 begins to address this question by outlining the necessary and essential components of a guidance and counseling program that is integral to the total educational process.

School counselors and administrators should first determine if the components are in place.

Once it is determined that the program components are in place, it is important to determine the degree of implementation. For example, there may be a guidance curriculum in place, but to what extent is it being delivered to students? The "Internal Improvement Review (IIR)" allows you to take an open and honest look at the degree to which their comprehensive guidance and counseling program is being implemented. The links below provide access to the IIR and to a presentation that guides you through the IIR process. The end result is an action plan for you to follow that will lead you toward a more fully implemented comprehensive guidance and counseling program.

Personnel Evaluation

The following materials for the School Counselor Evaluation Process are aligned with the Missouri Educator Evaluation System.  As with all guidance and counseling materials, districts are free to use and/or customize.  School Counselors should be provided support and evaluated using tools designed for school counselors. Please contact Tom Schlimpert at [email protected] if you have suggestions for improving these materials, have questions, or would like to participate in the pilot project during the 2015/2016 school year.
