Summary
"The purpose of the Guidance Conference on the Measurement of Student Adjustment and Achievement, and hence of this volume, was to call the attention of guidance workers to the trends in student personnel work and to review the research and theory upon which the guidance process is based. Past accomplishments and future research needs were emphasized. Guidance in the schools can be accomplished through the appropriate distribution of students in the curriculum, through special curricular offerings, and through individual case work. In the modern school, guidance may be carried on through the method of the homeroom teacher and also through the specialist counselor. The objectives of the program are the same, however, without regard to the method employed. Some of the aims of the guidance program are to bring about personal adjustment of the student, to assist in the achievement of academic proficiency, and to predict the level of probable future success. How successfully these objectives are achieved can be determined through measurement and other evaluation techniques. During the past decade great stress has been placed on the nondirective method of counseling. The use of this highly individualized technique in case work has led counselors to lose sight of the implications of group tendencies, basic theories, and the importance of prediction. It has, therefore, seemed important to call attention again to the more objective approaches to the evaluation of guidance and achievement and to the need for basic research on these problems"--Foreword.
