Program Evaluation

Program Evaluation

A counseling program evaluation asks two questions.  First, is there a written counseling program in the school district?  Second, is the written counseling program the actual implemented program in the buildings of the district?  To conduct a program evaluation, program standards are required.  Program standards are acknowledged measures of comparison or the criteria used to make judgments about the adequacy of the nature and structure of the program as well as the degree to which the program is in place.  To make judgments about counseling programs using standards and indicators, evidence is needed concerning whether or not the standards are being met.
