Trivia… The word function comes from the from Middle French word fonction and the direct Latin functionem, meaning "performance or execution".
Just how necessary is evaluation?
Evaluation seeks to provide objective evidence of whether the program has met the desired objectives.
It provides an opportunity for program planning and decision-making. Shertzer and Stone view evaluation as necessary to provide for the effectiveness of achieving program goals, in relation to specific standards.
Evaluation provides as a means of communication among school counselors, guidance teachers, school administrators, parents and the community in general.
It defines expectations for counselors, and provides a systematic means of measuring the counselor’s or guidance teacher’s performance in relation to program expectations.
Evaluation determines what the program achieves. In evaluating the program’s effectiveness, the following can be measured: Student awareness of the services; Satisfaction of students involved in individual counseling; and Satisfaction of students involved in classroom, and out-of-class, guidance activities.
Remember! Evaluation should be an on-going process. It provides an opportunity to modify the program when necessary. It helps to check: program effectiveness, program response to changing needs, strengths and limitations of the program, staff development, and reporting and follow-up.
Words of Wisdom… “The important thing is that men should have a purpose in life. It should be something useful, something good.” -Dalai Lama
