Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes

Last completed on 2/09/2018

All Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) programs measure and report student learning outcomes.  Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that comprise the accreditation standards of the CSWE.  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 program for each competency.  An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.
