Master of Social Work Program Assessment Plan and Report

ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY MASTERS OF SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM

LAST COMPLETED IN MAY 2017

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.

  • 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
  • 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.

Assessment data were gathered using two direct measures: the Field Instructor Practicum Evaluation and the MSW Program Comprehensive Exam. Analysis was conducted using the student competency benchmarks: (1) the percentage of students who were rated 3 (consistently meets requirements) or above on each competency by field instructors on the Field Instructor Practicum Evaluation and (2) the percentage of students who scored 70% or above   on the foundation and advanced MSW Comprehensive Exam completed by each student prior to graduation.  The student competency benchmark for each competency was set at 70% or above. Data were combined from both assessment measures and are presented in the aggregate below for each of the competencies.
