Annual Summary Report And Program Evaluation Surveys
Idaho State University’s Counselor Education program has a documented, empirically based plan for systematically evaluating the program objectives, including student learning. The Department gathers aggregate student assessment data that address (1) student knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions; (2) demographic and other characteristics of applicants, students, and graduates; and (3) data from systematic follow-up studies of graduates, site supervisors, and employers of program graduates. The information gathered is shared with the Department of Counseling Advisory Board, ISU administration, to the public via our webpage, and discussed by faculty to assess the effectiveness of departmental courses, program requirements, and other pertinent elements of the program. This information is then used to update and change the previous majors to improve the quality of the program.
