Perceived Roles and Function of School Psychologists by College of Education Students

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine College of Education students’ perceptions of school psychologist’s roles and functions. Participants were 200 (164) students in College of Education, Katsina-Ala. A questionnaire was employed to collect the data. It was found that college students majoring in secondary education rated all roles/functions as significantly more important than those majoring in primary education (p < .05). Students majoring in secondary education and those majoring in primary education differed significantly in their expectation on who they thought should serve the various roles and functions of a school psychologist if a school psychologist is not available. NCE 2 rated all of the roles/functions significantly higher than did NCE 1 (p < .05). However, NCE 1 and NCE 2 did not differ significantly (p > .01) on who they thought should perform the various roles and functions of an unavailable school psychologist. Implications of the findings were also presented in this article.
