Multiple Input Assessment and Preventive Intervention
A major problem in implementing new learning strategies in the schools is that learning is influenced by student, teacher, parent, curriculum, and other environmental factors. The school psychologist, counselor, teacher or administrative policy-making group must allocate limited resources to maximize educational efforts. This requires evaluating behaviors that relate not only to achievement, but self-competency, self-management, group interaction, motivation, and other affective and social variables. If the school is to prevent rather than respond to problems it should consider evaluation as a routine as well as an important diagnostic function of its program.
