The purpose of the researcher was to investigate roles and functions of the elementary counselor as perceived by elementary counselors. The sample consisted of 169 elementary school counselors employed for the 1990-1991 school term identified by the Kansas State Department of Education. The 4 independent variables researched were undergraduate major, master’s degree status, date of formal education, a counseling experience at other levels. The dependent variables were the scores of the 12 sub-scales of The Role of the Elementary School Counselor Questionnaire. The 12 dependent variables were Program Development, Counseling, Consultation, Coordination, Public Relations, Testing, Referral, Enrichment, Auxiliary Aid, Research, Program Accountability, and total score. Four null composite hypotheses were tested at the .05 level employing a three-way analysis of variance. A total of 336 comparisons were made. Of the 336 comparisons, 114 were main effects and 192 were interactions. Of the 144 main effects, 8 were statistically significant at the .05 level. Of the 192 interactions, 8 were statistically significant at the .05 level.
