This timely text describes the role of program evaluation in counselor education and provides step-by-step guidance for faculty seeking to develop comprehensive Student Learning Outcome (SLO) evaluation plans to meet accountability expectations. It serves as a blueprint for demystifying the SLO process and making the switch from an input-based measure of productivity that focuses on what counseling programs do, to an outcome-based approach that concentrates on the quality of learning through evidence-based assessment of students’ knowledge and skills. The first and second parts of the book lay the foundation for the SLO process and provide practical guidance for identifying and developing direct and indirect measures of student learning. Part III offers strategies for creating measures; collecting, managing, and reporting student data; and using data to ensure competence. In Part IV, counselor educators across the country offer hands-on application through a wide variety of SLO activities and rubrics linked to each of the curricular and specialty areas of the 2016 CACREP Standards. *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on wiley.com. *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website here. *Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to [email protected]

Online Counselor Education: A Guide for Students is an all-new guide for online students in counselor education programs. Students in online environments face a number of challenges that could put them at a disadvantage unless they have a resource to help guide them through some of the confusing aspects of an online environment. Such challenges include the lack of understanding surrounding graduate school performance expectations, balancing graduate school and life, the inability to connect with community members and local field agencies, and various other aspects unique to an online environment. This text from Carl J. Sheperis and R.J. Davis will help students through these challenges and act as an invaluable resource.

The collection of papers presented in this monograph provides an update on developments in assessment for counselors, practitioners, and researchers in all types of educational settings. The papers are grouped into five sections. Section 1, on emerging issues, includes topics on testing theories presently used, and some thoughts for the future. Section 2 concerns issues of counselor education in higher education. Section 3 discusses educational assessment in elementary and secondary schools, and the role of the counselor in school guidance. Section 4 considers testing modifications and accommodations that are in practice with the special needs population. Section 5 reviews special assessment topics. Examples of these topics include the rights of the test takers; communicating test results; writing multiple choice tests; and use of specific types of tests. Also included are reprints of 33 ERIC/CASS Digests on Assessment in Counseling and Therapy produced for the Assessment '95 ERIC/CASS and the Association for Assessment in Counseling national conference. With the publication of this monograph, it is hoped that a wide range of practitioners and researchers will have access to current information that is not readily available to them.
