* 1. What is your role?

* 2. At what grade level(s) do you work?  Select all that apply.

* 3. Wisconsin Academic Standards specify what students should know and be able to do in the classroom. They serve as specific goals for the teaching and learning process. In the past the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for School Counseling has served as the standard locally. Nationally, the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) Mindsets and Behaviors for Student Success: K-12 College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Every Student has been utilized. In addition, a competency is a set of defined behaviors that provide a structured guide enabling the identification, evaluation and development of the behaviors.

With this in mind, do school counseling standards (Wisconsin and ASCA) fit better as “academic standards” or as “competencies?”
