Assessment Results of Student Learning Outcomes – CSWE

JACKSONVILLE STATE UNIVERSITY

JSU BACCALAUREATE SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM

ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

2016-2017

The JSU Social Work Program has evaluated student outcomes for nine competency areas and 31 practice behaviors as specified by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).  The data shown below indicate that for academic year 2016-17, 100% of our students met the Competency Benchmark for this year. 

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 of 80% of students recognizes a student performing at a Competent Performance or Advanced Performance in competencies.  The range is set by the social work program for each competency.

Accreditation Standard 4.0.1: The program presents its plan for ongoing assessment of student outcomes for all identified competencies in the generalist level of practice (baccalaureate social work programs).

Educational Policy 4.0 states: Competence is perceived as holistic, involving both performance and the knowledge, values, critical thinking, affective reactions, and exercise of judgment that inform performance.

Accreditation Standard 4.0.2: The program provides its most recent year of summary data and outcomes for the assessment of each of the identified competencies, specifying the percentage of students achieving program benchmarks for each program option.
