Abstract:
This study aimed at describing and comparing students’ perceived level of importance and performance of school counselors roles and functions. The study employed the purposive sampling technique wherein participants of the study consisted of 164 graduating students in the high school (82) and college (82) levels enrolled during the Academic Year 2014-2015 in one of the colleges in Angeles City, Philippines. Using a self-administered questionnaire, students were asked to rate the importance of school counselor roles and functions and then rate their school counselors’ performance based on the same roles and functions. Mann-Whitney U test and Wilcoxon signed rank test were utilized in analyzing the data. Results revealed that participants perceive all school counselor roles and functions as very important. Participants also rate their school counselors’ performance as very good with exemption to the role of advocate for their personal/social development which obtained a good rating only. When compared according to their educational levels, significant differences regarding students’ perception on the importance of the role of school counselor as collaborator in their career development and counselor in their academic development were evident. Furthermore, significant difference exists in terms of students’ perception on the performance of school counselors as data-utilizer in their academic development. Lastly, there are significant differences between the perception of students on the importance and performance of school counselor roles and functions. Results suggest that the performance of school counselors does not meet the expectations of the students regarding the importance of all school counselor roles and functions. Such findings have implications in addressing the expectations of students and improving the performance of school counselors of their roles and functions
