CSWE Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes (MSW)

Last updated on 5/19

The School of Social Work has been continually accredited by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE) since 1919.

Form AS 4 (M) - Duplicate and expand as needed. Provide table(s) to support self -study narrative addressing Accreditation Standards below.

This form is used to assist the COA in the evaluation of the program’s compliance with Accreditation Standards stated below.

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.

4.0.3 The program uses Form AS 4(B) and/or Form AS 4(M) to report its most recent assessment outcomes for each program option to constituents and the public on its website and routinely up-dates (minimally every 2 years) its findings.

All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning outcomes. Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies which comprise the accreditation standards of the Council on Social Work Education. These competencies are dimensions of social work practice which 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.

Program Option: In Person
