dc.description.abstractThe primary purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between college counselor effectiveness and the Experimental Scale of Attitudes (ESA) in order to investigate the possibility of using the ESA as a means of identifying effective counselors. A secondary purpose of the study was to examine the relationships between counselor effectiveness and the ESA with biographical data in the Personal Data Questionnaire (PDQ). A final purpose of the study was to determine the relative effectiveness of this group of counselors in dealing with clients differing in type of problem presented, sex, year in college, and number of counseling sessions attended. The subjects for the study were randomly selected from a national sampling of male college counselors who spend at least half their time counseling students. Counselors at 306 college counseling centers were invited to participate. A total of 224 counselors from 108 centers volunteered for the study. Through random selection, one counselor from each of the 108 centers was selected. Only 59 returned usable data.en
