Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes By Academic Year (CSWE EPAS)

Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes

2016-2017

This evaluation report indicates the Master of Social Work Program’s compliance with Accreditation Standards set by Commission on Accreditation (COA) of Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies which comprise the accreditation standards of the CSWE. These competencies are dimensions of social work practice which all social workers are expected to master during their professional training. A measurement benchmark for each competency is set by the Department of Social Work at California State University, Fullerton following the guideline provided by CSWE. An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.
