School Assessment Data

The Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) requires the School to provide student assessment data to the public.  This is one part of the 2008/2012 Educational Policies and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) and the overall movement to make curriculum competency-based with the ongoing assessment of student performance.

CSWE articulates ten broad competencies and specific practice behaviors for social work students to acquire.  All social work programs are required to assess student performance and use this information in an ongoing fashion to improve curriculum.

Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes  
Last Completed on March 9, 2020

Form AS4 (B) 

This form is used to assist the COA in the evaluation of the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards below:

4.0.2      The program provides summary data and outcomes for the assessment of each of its competencies, identifying the percentage of students achieving the benchmark.

4.0.4      The program uses Form AS 4 (B) and/or AS4 (M) to report assessment outcome to its constituents and the public on its website and routinely up-dates (minimally every 2 years) these postings

 

All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning outcomes. Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that compromise 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.
