ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Field Instructors’ Evaluation of Student Performance

LAST UPDATED JULY 2015
 

All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning outcomes.  Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that comprise the accreditation standards of the Council on Social Work Education. These competencies are dimensions of social work practice that all social workers are expected to master during their professional training. A measurement benchmark is set by the social work programs for each competency. An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.

Competency Benchmark: Field instructor’s evaluation of student performance; 5-point Likert Scale (5=Highly Skilled; 4=Skilled; ; 3=Average Level of Skill; 2=Not very Skilled; 1=Not at all Skilled) of 3.0 or greater for at least 80% of students
