Summary of the Program’s Assessment Plan | Generalist Practice

All students are assessed using a minimum of two measures on their mastery of the nine competencies that comprise the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards of the Council on Social Work Education and any additional competencies programs may choose to add. Summarize the program’s competency-based assessment plan.

BSW Field Practicum Placement Assessment Instrument (FPPAI)

When/where students are assessed: In BSW field placements at the end of the spring semester, 2021
Who assessed student competence? DSU Field Instructors
Outcome Measure Benchmark (minimum score indicative of achievement) for Competencies 1-9: Minimum score 3 out of 5
Competency Benchmark (percent of students the program expects to have achieved the minimum scores, inclusive of all measures) for Competencies 1-9: 80%
Assessment Measure #2: DSU BSW Program Competency Mastery Rubric
Dimension(s) assessed: Generalist social work knowledge, values, skills, and cognitive and affective dimensions

Indicate the benchmark percentage for each competency. The competency benchmark is the percent of students the program expects to have achieved both/all outcome measure benchmarks. Programs calculate the percentage of students achieving each outcome measure benchmark, then calculate the percentage of students achieving each competency inclusive of two or more measures for each program option. This is a required form.
