Counseling surveys and needs assessments are crucial for collecting data on how successful your program was during the school year and for planning appropriate topics for the next school year. Additionally, guidance curriculum pretests and posttests are effective tools at showing knowledge gained through the guidance curriculum. It is important to allow all stakeholders to complete a survey or pre/posttest- students, staff members, and parents/community members. Each survey in this resource also includes a needs assessment section. These surveys can be printed out or turned into electronic surveys for use with Google Docs, Survey Monkey, etc.
