School Counseling Data Specialist
Location: Online, Self-paced
Collecting and analyzing data can help school counselors and their administrators identify achievement gaps, understand educational issues and assess programs to ensure they are making a difference for all students. For school counseling programs to be considered a pivotal and valued resource to the learning environment, school counselors must commit to formulating and executing services that link their work to the instructional mission and concretely demonstrate accountability for student academic success.
School counselors need to use data for four reasons:
- Identify school counseling program goals
- Monitor student progress to close the achievement gap
- Assess and evaluate programs
- Demonstrate school counseling program effectiveness.
To address the need for school counselors to understand how to use data in their programs, ASCA offers the School Counseling Data Specialist program. View the Specialist syllabus.
