The Who, What, Where, When and Why of Daily and Yearly Counseling Contacts
This product allows counselors and school psychologists to have in-depth analysis of their data. While managing your counseling notes in an easy, efficient way, you will simultaneously collect ongoing data that shows what the needs are in your district and exactly how you are spending your time.
What comes with this purchase? An Excel spreadsheet with pivot table set up and ready to use AND a 16-page document that gives you all the information you will need to use the product.
The Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet with Pivot Tables already created FOR you in this product allows you to:
o Document your daily contacts with/about students very quickly by name, date, grade level, school (if relevant), reason, and add comments about the contact.
o Have a private way to keep your counseling notes separate from school, district, or state tracking, allowing your notes to remain sole-possession records.
o Print graphs at the end of the year (or any time you want, really) that show how many students you saw, what grade levels/schools they were in, what months were the busiest, and what counseling issues were addressed the most. This can be done in a way that student confidentiality is maintained when sharing the data.
o Print an individual student’s contacts to file separately from the document, if this is needed.
o Print, at the end of the year, a complete list of your student contacts (direct or indirect) both by date and by student name to keep for your private files.
