M.S.W. assessment data
All programs accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) measure and report student learning outcomes.
Students are assessed for mastery of the competencies that compose the accreditation standards. 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.
About the data evaluation process
Form AS4 (B) The forms below are used to assist the Commission on Accreditation in the evaluation of the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards below:
4.0.2 The program provides summary data and outcomes for the assessment of each of its competencies, identifying the percentage of students achieving the benchmark.
4.0.4 The program uses Form AS 4 (B) and/or AS 4(M) to report assessment outcomes to its constituents and the public on its website and routinely updates (minimally every two years) these postings
Update cycle
Data on M.S.W. student learning outcomes is on a twoyear renewal cycle. The current data are from the 20202021 academic year and will be updated in late 2023.
