Handbook for Assessment in Social Work Education
We designed this text to take the guesswork out of the assessment process for social work education programs.
The first half of the book is a step-by-step process that takes you through everything you need to write an assessment plan for your program. The second half of the book is an assessment plan that was used in a successful initial accreditation.
Each chapter provides literature and discussion of an important topic relevant to social work program assessment. A workbook assignment at the end of each chapter is designed to help you conceptualize where you are in the accreditation/reaffirmation process and apply the knowledge and skills that you are developing through each step of the process.
While SWEAP instruments are used as examples of appropriate measures, other types of measures, including course embedded assignment rubrics, are also discussed.
After completing the workbook examples, you will have put together your program’s assessment plan and understand how to report your outcomes.
