Assignment Instructions:

Reviewing and reporting results from data collected are essential in determining the needs of students, interventions, and to effectively evaluate a comprehensive school counseling program. This assignment requires the results from the survey you designed in module three and the data tracker provided in the resource section.

Case Study. Prior to printing an electronic copy for your school counselor’s use, update the dates along the left side of the tracker. Please select a campus school counselor to track their activities beginning on Monday (day one) of this week and collected through the end of day Thursday (day four). Counselors should hand write the number of hours spent (.5= half an hour; 1=full hour). Take time to discuss the tracker with the school counselor (see Section IV for detailed data tracker information).

Check in daily to see how the tracking process is going. In order to know how the comprehensive program is operating, tracking these efforts on a daily basis is necessary. On Thursday, be sure to pick up the paper copy so you can manually input this information.

Putting it Together. Prepare a power point presentation for your administrative team. This presentation should reveal the outcomes of the survey administered in week three and the data tracker. One graphic or chart should be included in the presentation (Hatch chapter 10-11). Research should be infused throughout your presentation.

Create a title for your presentation and include your name, title, and campus name. It should be a minimum of 10 slides. You will want to reveal the response rate for the survey- how many you actually obtained, and conceptualize/articulate the results. Additionally, report the programs balance, and the percentages of time spent in delivery components. Finally, create a conclusion slide that integrates all data collection efforts and implications or take-a-ways for your administrative team. You must submit the electronic data tracker along with the PowerPoint.

Copyrighted Material: In order to protect the integrity of this data tracker, it is copy-righted and permission has been granted to Dr. Wines to use only in the context of the course. If you choose to use this at a later time, you must email the individual responsible for the creation of this tracker- who can be located at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Assignment Research Criteria

Include a minimum of five journal articles (cited in both the text and listed on the reference page) found in the Lamar University Library, Montana Journal of School Counseling (jsc.montana.edu), or Professional School Counseling Journal (Available with ASCA Membership). Other peer-reviewed journals available on the internet are allowed. However, non-peer reviewed sources, such as WIKIPEDIA is unacceptable. Your textbooks from this course and other courses are acceptable, but are additions to the five journal article requirement and should not appear to be the majority of your in-text citations.

APA Criteria

All criteria from the APA manual should be followed. Do not copy nor paste from internet examples- you must type out each reference and citation in its correct format. Please review both videos, take notes, and download the APA Information document found under the course policies, procedures, and requirements link in Blackboard. This is the standard set for papers submitted in this and future courses.

Safe-Assign Score Policy

Reducing your safe assign score is easy by using original written-text, not borrowed from a peer nor circulated from a previous course you took; use peer-reviewed journal articles from different publishers/journals; and stay away from including verbiage from internet websites. Scores above 30% will be flagged, and graded as a “zero” by the Instructional Associate. You will then be referred to the Professor of Record for further intervention.

Due by day seven of module four at 11:59 p.m.
