One of the qualifications for being a competent speech and language clinician is to be skilled in interactional procedures within a clinic setting. A clinician's interactional skills are developed through training whereby one participates in several clinical settings with clients displaying a variety of speech, language and hearing disorders. Various evaluation methods, both subjective and objective, have been utilized in guiding the clinician towards interactional competency.
Interactional analysis systems have been designed to provide more objective feedback. The Boone-Prescott Content and Sequence Analysis System (B-P) is one of several such systems. Although this system has been found to be an asset towards evaluating the clinic session (Boone and Prescott, 1972b) information is lacking as to how the data from the parameters of the B-P Scoring Form reflect the quality of a clinician's interactive skills. Hence, this investigator sought to answer the following question: How do B-P data compare for clinicians who have been highly rated subjectively with those who have been less favorably rated subjectively by supervisors?
