Abstract

The general purpose of the present study was to examine the current status of full-time school counselors in the country. More specifically, this investigation attempted to study the relationships between school counselors' perceptions of supervision needs, job performance and job involvement. In the testing of the conceptual framework of perceptions of supervision needs, demographic variables were included. In addition, the study also sought to examine school counselors' preferences of supervisory emphasis and its relation to experience. A total of 268 of the randomly selected subjects responded, yielding a 67% response rate. A correlational design was used and the theoretical framework of the study was based on the developmental models of supervision. The perceptions of supervision needs was measured by the Perceptions of Supervision Needs Scale developed by the researcher; whereas job performance and job involvement were measured by the Counselor Rating Form-Short and the Job involvement Scale respectively. The three instruments showed reliability coefficients of .89, .88 and .91 respectively. For school counselors' preferences of supervisory emphasis areas, they were measured by the Supervisor Emphasis Rating Form-Revised which showed the reliability coefficients of the four scales ranging from .94 to .96.
