Change Program Competency Threshold on SWEAP Reports

The SWEAP team has carefully crafted the competency threshold for the FCAI and the FPPAI. For instance, the threshold for competency on the FCAI is 50% of answers correct in a particular competency section. For the FPPAI, competency is defined as a 3. If you would like to customize the threshold for competency (higher, or lower) for your particular program’s report(s) please:

  1. Run a report for the instruments you want included. This report, included with your original SWEAP order, will utilize the SWEAP crafted threshold.
  2. Then, place an order for the customized threshold service.
  3. Indicate in the memo space of the check out cart :
    1. Which report(s) you want customized, and
    2. The competency threshold you want to use in this customized report (ie. percentage of questions correct on a given competency section of the FCAI, or 1-5 on the FPPAI scale).

The charge to change the threshold for any one report is $25.00.

If you have multiple program options, each separate customized report will cost $25.  If you would like to change the competency threshold on both the FCAI and the FPPAI in a single order, order for 2 changes @ $25.00 each for a total of $50.00.

Individual Online Instrument Links & SWEAP’s Integrated Tracking System

SWEAP, and its predecessor BEAP, has traditionally been pen-and-paper oriented. In 2010 , we began offering the option of administering our field instrument through an online system we call “electronic tickets” (eTickets). Based on our success processing over 3000 eTickets, we are now offering ALL our instruments through this eTicket/online system.

Instrument Customization

SWEAP can customize our online instruments to include additional assessment questions tailored to a specific graduate or undergraduate program’s needs. We cannot alter our own instruments, but we can add items to online instruments based on your needs. Customized field instruments and customize curriculum instruments, that include Specialized Practice competencies for graduate programs, have been piloted with MSW programs with great success!

The MSW Specialization Year, First Customization is a base customization fee of $600. This first time customization fee includes initial consultation (up to 1 hour), programming time, and consultation on designing a report (up to 1 hour). After that initial customized instrument is created, programs just pay the regular per instrument fee.

Additional edits to existing customization work, or additions from existing “First Customization” or additions to existing SWEAP instruments (up to five additional questions) orders: $50 (dependent upon amount of edits/time needed – there could be an additional charge).
