In this section reference will be made to:
1. Group criteria for observation
2. Individual criteria for observation
3. Rating Forms Rubrics
In order to assure that counselor performance has improved as a result of the Learning Plan, it is necessary to "re-observe" the counselor after the designated activities have been completed. The counselor and clinical supervisor will determine a date for this re-observation. The clinical supervisor will use the Group or Individual Criteria for Observation that was used initially to re-evaluate the performance of the counselor. The clinical supervisor is looking for improved performance in those areas indicated on the original observation sheet.
Assuming the activities selected were appropriate for the counselor's learning or skill development, performance should improve. The clinical supervisor will observe and make notes. The feedback should include whether or not the performance has improved and if not, a new plan of activities should be developed. If performance did improve, the counselor should be rewarded for that work.
By comparing the original work of the counselor to the current performance using the Rubrics, the counselor and supervisor can gauge the progress along a continuum.
The improved work can also be recorded on the Rating Form corresponding to the activities developed from the KSA's in TAP 21.
