Change Program Competency Threshold on SWEAP Reports

The SWEAP team has carefully crafted the competency threshold for the Curriculum Assessment Instrument and the Field Instrument. For instance, the threshold for competency on the Curriculum Assessment Instrument is 50% of answers correct in a particular competency section. For the Field Instrument, 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 Curriculum Assessment Instrument, or 1-5 on the Field Instrument 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 Curriculum Assessment Instrument and the Field Instrument in a single order, order for 2 changes @ $25.00 each for a total of $50.00.

Instrument Customization

SWEAP can customize our standard instruments to include additional assessment questions tailored to a specific program’s needs, though we cannot alter our own instrument items.

SWEAP can also help your program design custom field instruments and/or curriculum instruments, designed to assess your program’s own unique competencies, including Specialized Practice competencies for graduate programs.



For the creation of a new custom instrument, there is a base fee of $600. This first time customization fee includes initial consultation (up to 1 hour), programming time, and consultation time on designing a report (up to 1 hour). After the initial customized instrument is created, programs can purchase the instrument at the regular per instrument fee.

Additional items (like a question allowing the user to select their program option) can be added to existing SWEAP instruments. Additional edits to existing customization work, like additions to completed  “First Customization” orders, are also possible. Adding a “Choose Program Option” item is a $150 fee per instrument, for one hour of work. Additional work is charged on an hourly basis ($150/hr), with a 1 hour minimum .
