    Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes

    Last completed on 6/5/2015

    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 programs for each competency.  An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.

    At the end of the final semester, prior to the field experience, students will rate themselves on each competency.  Scale: 5 = I have attained this skill, 4 = largely attained, 3 = partially attained, 2 = made little progress, 1 = have made no progress in attaining this skill.
