Operationalize ASCA Student Standards
The ASCA Student Standards: Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success are broad standards that identify and describe the knowledge, attitudes and skills students should be able to demonstrate as a result of a school counseling program. School counselors use the standards to assess student growth and development, create culturally sustaining strategies and activities, and build a program that helps students achieve their highest potential. To operationalize the standards, school counselors write or select measurable learning objectives aligned with specific standards, which become the foundation for classroom instruction, appraisal and advisement, and counseling activities addressing students’ developmental needs. As part of this process, school counselors also create and administer a pre-/post-assessment based on the student learning objectives and selected student standard. Learn from the author of ASCA’s new publication, “ASCA National Model Implementation Guide: ASCA Student Standards,” how to use the book and operationalize ASCA Student Standards to work for your program.
