Demonstrating program effectiveness

Disseminating Results and Sustaining the Program

Introduction

As a school counselor, you will be expected to demonstrate your effectiveness to many different stakeholders. For this assignment, you will have the opportunity to highlight the outcomes on academic gains from your counseling program using the evidence-based intervention you selected and described in the assignments in Unit 3 and Unit 6. You will use PowerPoint or another software to complete this assignment, and you will record it using Kaltura or Adobe Connect. Refer to the Using Kaltura tutorial or Using Adobe Connect tutorial (linked in the resources) for directions on recording and uploading your presentation in the courseroom.

Instructions

For this assignment, imagine you have successfully implemented your evidence-based intervention. It is your job to communicate the outcomes of your program to your stakeholders or advisory council (Dollarhide & Saginak, 2017, p. 196).

You will demonstrate your ability to inform your team via multiple mediums. Imagine that your group meets online and you need to incorporate images, screenshots, videos, Excel spreadsheets, documents, pre- or post-assessments, and so forth to enhance your presentation and clearly illustrate the benefits of your selected intervention. Record your presentation using Kaltura or Adobe Connect. Creativity is encouraged although remember that the content will be evaluated using the scoring rubrics. This assignment is a presentation to your School Counseling Advisory Council, not a traditional paper, so you will want to utilize the skills we have practiced through the course to demonstrate your technological adeptness.

You may also refer to pages 109–120 of your Facilitating Evidence-Based, Data-Driven School Counseling text for a template.

Create a 5–10-minute multimedia presentation that communicates the outcomes of your program to an imaginary group of stakeholders. In your presentation:

  1. Pretend this is one of the first meetings of your School Counseling Advisory Council. In a slide or two, identify the purpose of the advisory council, membership of the advisory council, and explain ethical considerations (such as limits to confidentiality) that may impact the type of information reported to the council.
  2. Explain how your academic-based goal was selected based on the schoolwide program plan needs assessment. Use a logic model to open the discussion (see the logic model templates in the resources; and see also Chapter 3 of your Facilitating Evidence-Based, Data-Driven School Counseling text).
  3. Justify the selected evidence-based intervention as a component of a comprehensive school counseling program. In other words, when proposing the intervention, what evidence did you have from the literature that supported its use?
  4. Discuss the results of the intervention, incorporating information from your program evaluation to measure effectiveness.
  5. Propose future actions to sustain the school counseling program that are based on the results of your evaluation. This is your opportunity to advocate for your program and the role of the school counselor, but be sure you are doing so in a way that is both appropriate and accurate.

Note: Remember to carefully review the scoring guide criteria before you begin the assignment.
