Capstone Course -- Practicum in Counseling (CSP 885) is required in all programs prior to the internship, near the completion of the program. Each student must demonstrate effective counseling skills with clients before registering for the internship (CSP 892 or CSP 992). Students submit a videotape sample for review by faculty not teaching the class. In addition, CSP 922, Problem Solving Assessment Practicum is required of all school psychology students. Students demonstrate the required assessment skills/processes and are assessed by the faculty.
Multiple evaluators assess the following learning objectives:
SCLO: 2, 3, 5, 6
CCLO: 1, 4, 5
||N = 17
||X = 6.8
||(1 - 7 = Excellent/Always)
||N = 8
||X = 5.0
||(1 - 5 = Very Adequate)
Interpretation and Recommendations:
The results of this assessment indicate that those that those practicum students evaluated are able to demonstrate effective counseling/problem solving skills. The assessment instrument used will be refined to provide a better way of describing the educational outcomes related to this course experience. There is on-going support by the Department to the continue use of this assessment item.
