Trends in the Role and Function of New Jersey School Psychologists
David W. Winikur, Thomas Daniels
ABSTRACT: This article reviews the amount of time school psychologists spend performing various professional role functions in an attempt to quantitatively identify any developmental trends in the role functioning of school psychologists. The research was based on professional surveys conducted during the 1973-74,1974-75and 1977-78 school years. Data were of particular interest because they were gathered in a state that has a long-standing team-decision-making model. Data analysis revealed that the percent of time devoted to performing the various role functions did not differ significantly over the three survey years. Diagnostic activities that are clearly related to team functioning are well entrenched in this system of school psychological functioning.
