Requiem for the Testing Role?

pp. 202—206

ABSTRACT: In order to determine if school psychologists are functioning in activities considered most desirable by other school personnel, public school administrators and classroom teachers described their school psychologists in terms of those activities engaged in most often versus those most preferred. Consistent with previous research, principals endorsed the psychometric function as both the most prevalent activity and most desirable. Classroom teachers, on the other hand, expressed dissonance between what they perceived as the most frequent school psychologist role and what was felt as most desirable. Implications of these findings are suggested.
