Curriculum Development and Outcomes Assessment for Wheelock College Social Work Programs
Student Learning Outcomes Assessment
Wheelock College has developed this process to guide us in our program assessment of student learning outcomes.
Council on Social Work Accreditation (CSWE) Program Assessment Statement
The BSW and MSW programs at Wheelock College are actively engaged in preparations for our upcoming fall 2014 Reaffirmation visit by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), working collaboratively with our field partners and students. The programs were last Reaffirmed jointly in 2006 under the 2001 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). The new 2008 EPAS significantly shifted the evaluative and assessment processes for the Social Work Programs to be based upon 10 Core Competencies for both programs, 41 Practice Behaviors (BSW and Foundation MSW), and 10 Advanced Practice Behaviors created by our Social Work program (Concentration MSW). The programs have infused the new Core Competency and Practice-Behavior based standards within our program curriculum in an increasingly comprehensive and integrated manner over the last several years.
