SWK3060 Human Behavior and the Social Environment II, Final Paper Measures Objective: 7 All students take this exam in the spring semester of their senior year. Assignments are graded by MSU Denver faculty. See Appendix B for assignment. Papers were collected from all three sections in Spring 2011 for a total of 59 papers. The overall final score on the paper is used. The average score was 84%. This is a notable increase from last year s average of 70%. No significant changes were made to the curriculum; however the lead faculty made expectations more clear to students across all sections. Grade distribution is reported in Appendix L. The targeted minimum average score is 80%. As the BSW Program plans for reaffirmation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) this target/expectation will be discussed. It was discovered that many students who received a 70% or below on this assignment received a reduced grade per the Department s late paper policy. Discussions surrounding whether this is or is not an indicator of program objective compliance will occur in the future. As the BSW Program approaches

3 SWK3780 Social Welfare Policy, Policy Analysis Paper Measures Objectives: 5 & 8 All students take this exam in the spring semester of their senior year. Assignments are graded by Metro State faculty. See Appendix C for assignment. See Appendix D for rubric. Rubrics/score sheets were collected from 3 of the 4 sections of SWK3780 in Spring 2011 for a total of 44. The section that was not collected has taught by an affiliate faculty who was not hired back to teach. The lead faculty for SWK3780 has developed and implemented a rubric that clearly indicates student s level of understanding program objectives 5 and 8. Data is pulled from those specific areas on the rubric/score sheet. On Objective 5, students scored an average score of 84% On objective 8, students scored an average score of 84%. Grade distribution is reported in Appendix L. The targeted minimum average score is 80%. As the BSW Program plans for reaffirmation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) this target/expectation will be discussed. reaffirmation from the Council on Social Work Education (2016), which will include revision of the entire curriculum to adhere to new standards, assessment results, embedded assignments and rubrics will be thoroughly examined. Planning for the reaffirmation has started in the academic year. Assessment will play a major role and all embedded assignments will have rubrics that directly measure each program objective. The rubric and score sheet for SWK3780 has worked very well. It not only reports specific data on each learning objective, but it also provides more specific information to the faculty on overall strengths and weaknesses of each area of student learning that composites each learning objective. As the BSW Program approaches reaffirmation from CSWE, which includes curriculum revision, a thorough analysis of each program objective measure will be conducted. The rubric for SWK3780 will likely serve as a model for future rubric development.

4 SWK3790 Research in Social Work, Research Project Measures Objective: 9 All students take this exam in the fall semester of their junior year. Assignments are graded by Metro State faculty. See Appendix E for assignment. SWK4010 Generalist Practice II, Examination 1 Measures Objectives: 1 & 6 All students take this exam in the spring semester of their senior year.

5 Measures Objective: 2 All students take this exam in the spring semester of their senior year. Assignments are graded by Metro State faculty. See appendix G for examination instructions. SWK490E Field Research II/SWK4820 Applied Research II, Final Research Project Measures Objectives: 4 & 9 All students complete this research project during the final (Spring) semester of their senior year. It is graded by MSU Denver faculty. See Appendix H for assignment semester for a total of 47. The final score on the paper is used. The average score was 90%. Grade distribution is reported in Appendix L. Papers were collected from all 4 sections of SWK490E for a total of 69. The average score on the final paper is used to measure both program objectives.

Planning for the reaffirmation has started in the academic year. Assessment will play a major role and all embedded assignments will have rubrics that directly measure each program objective. This course is new to the BSW curriculum as a result of previous assessment data which concluded a change was needed. Previously, this paper (including the measure of program objectives 4 & 9) were conducted within SWK4810 Professional Field Experience II and, therefore, graded by a field liaison. Under this structure, average scores on this paper were in the high A range, which is unusual for this type of research assignment. Upon further investigation of the faculty, it was determined that faculty with research backgrounds would be

6 Professional Field Experience II SWK4810, Process Recording Measures Objectives: 2, 3, 6, 10, 11 The Process Recording Assignment is completed in the Spring semester of the senior year and is completed by all students and graded by Metro State faculty. Overall, the assignment measures the student s ability to successfully and ethically interview a client. See appendix I for assignment. Papers were collected from all 6 sections for SWK4810 for a total of 45. The average score on the paper is used to measure all indicated program objectives. The average score was 92%. Grade distribution is reported in Appendix L. The targeted minimum average score is 80%. As the BSW Program plans for reaffirmation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) this target/expectation will be discussed. better equipped to critically evaluate this assignment. Therefore, this class was added to the curriculum. The average score and grade distribution of the first indicator that the change was successful. As with all other BSW courses, this embedded assignment will be carefully reviewed and a rubric will be created to directly measure the program objectives during the reaffirmation process. Discussions about program assessment have consistently articulated that a closer examination of the Process Recording assignment as an embedded assignment is needed. Informal methods of assessment through advising and other avenues of student feedback have pointed to a weakness in the BSW Program curriculum in regard to teaching and practicing interviewing skills even though average scores on the Process Recording assignment have always been very high. As a result, the Generalist Practice lead faculty has improved course content

7 Professional Field Experience II SWK4810, Final Field Instructor Evaluation of Student Performance Measures Objectives: 1-12 Community field instructor evaluates seniors at end of each Spring semester using a scale from 0-4, 4 being the highest score. The Social Work Program has set a benchmark average of 3.2 and above on each objective measuring this objective. See appendix J for evaluation instrument. The field instructor evaluation of student performance at the internship measures all 12 program objectives directly as follows. Averages on each goal on the evaluation are provided. Score distribution is reported in Appendix M. Program Learning Objective 1: Goal 1: Critical Thinking Apply critical thinking skills within the context of professional social work practice. Average: 3.86 Objective 1: Demonstrates critical thinking in assessment of client systems. Average: 3.87 Objective 2: Employs empirically based client system interventions. Average: 3.69 Objective 3: Interprets agency policies clearly on behalf of clients. Average: 3.88 Objective 4: Evaluates effectiveness of The targeted minimum average score is 3.25 in each area. As the BSW Program plans for reaffirmation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) this target/expectation will be discussed. to include an assignment that requires students to videotape themselves practicing interviewing skills. Process Recording is the last formal in-class written assignment that students do to demonstrate their knowledge and skills (including the program objectives) through interviewing a client; however it may not be the best measure in our curriculum. As the BSW Program revamps its curriculum for CSWE reaffirmation, this issue will be closely examined. The Final Field Instructor Evaluation of Student Performance is very important for program assessment as it measures all program objectives based on student s performance at the field placement/internship. The Department realizes there have been some issues related to the accuracy of the data collected on the evaluation tool. As a result of previous assessment, the BSW Field Director restructure the evaluation tool to be a 0-4 scale versus a 0-5 scale based on years

Average:3.85 past. This was done if effort to have a more critical and reflective evaluation by the field instructors. Although this resulted in some clarity, it is still apparent that more work is needed. Although all field evaluations were collected, only 60% could be used for assessment due to apparent confusion on part of the field instructor who used incorrect methods of evaluating the students. As a result, the BSW Field Director will implement evaluation training into the academic year s field instructors trainings. Additionally, a new Field Instructor Evaluation of Student Performance will be created to convinced with the new Educational Policies and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) and implemented with the new curriculum packet ( projected Fall 201) Program Learning Objective 3: Goal 3: Practice Without Discrimination Practice without discrimination and with respect, knowledge and skills related to clients age, class, color, culture, disability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation.

Process for interpretation of findings Describe the structure of responsibilities for program assessment. Specify processes undertaken for faculty review of findings prior to submission of this report. How did the program come to the decisions it made? The Department of Social Work has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years. Five years ago, the BSW Program had a total student fte of approximately 130. Today, between the BSW and MSW Programs, we have approximately 320 student fte. In the past 3 years, the Department brought up an entire graduate program and is in Year 2 of the candidacy timeline towards full accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The Department has done this with limited resources and amidst great transitions, especially over the last year with several changes in leadership. As with most things in the Department, the structure and processes surrounding assessment are transitioning and improving. As of September 1, 2012, the BSW/MSW Program Specialist & Administrative Coordinator received a revised job description to formally include assessment coordination. This central coordination of efforts will be key to the future organization of the assessment process and information sharing with the faculty. Another key player in the assessment structure are the lead faculty, who serve as content experts and leaders in all sections of the specific course(s) they are lead for. The assessment coordinator works directly with the lead faculty to share assessment data and devise plans of action. The Chair provides expertise, oversees the process and ensures

16 collaboration across all faculty and staff by structuring curriculum committees, assessment committees and accreditation committees. The Department of Social Work s accrediting body, CSWE, places significant value on program assessment and this is strongly articulated in the new Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). The BSW Program is currently planning for its reaffirmation in 2016 and will adopt the new EPAS. This process will result in a revision of the current assessment plan including the process for reviewing findings and making decisions. Response to prior peer review report(s) - Describe the ways in which the program has responded to any prior year s peer review report. What kind of continuous improvement cycle are you using? The feedback from the peer review report was shared with all faculty and will be used in redesigning the assessment plan under the new Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). Specifically, the suggestion to employ assessment measures in lower division classes will be discussed as this data would give the faculty an indication of a baseline in program objective compliance as well as other benefits. The Department uses a basic continuous improvement cycle involving evaluation, assessment, plan of action design, and implementation. As stated earlier, the Department is currently expanding the cycle to involve more collaboration in the process. Plans for the program assessment process To what extent does the program assessment process need modifications? Describe any plans for modifying the program assessment process. Is it the program s intent to gather data about every outcome every year? If not, what is the proposed data collection cycle? Although the current assessment process is somewhat solid in measuring the current program objectives, the upcoming Council on Social Work (CSWE) reaffirmation process will require substantial changes to the BSW Program curriculum as it adopts the new Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). This change will result in an updated assessment plan and process. The BSW Program anticipates it will continue to collect data every year, however if a new cycle is determined, it will be articulated in future assessment plans. Implementation plan for applicable program changes -, Summarize the changes described in the Action and Rationale columns above and specify the implementation plan including a timeline. The BSW Program will continue to make refinements to its current assessment plan including the improvement of assessment measures and rubrics. The Program plans to continue to collect and assess data every year as indicated in the current plan while it revises curriculum under the new Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). Any future curriculum changes discovered as a result of assessment from the current model will be reflected in the new curriculum packet under the new EPAS. The Department plans to start this new curriculum and assessment plan in Fall of 2015.
