Field Evaluations

 

The evaluation of student performance for the M.S.W. degree is the culmination of a process that begins with placement of the student in the practicum agency and continues thugh the ongoing planning, orienting, and teaching that take place in the agency, in the supervisory relationship, in the classroom, and with the faculty advisor.

Field Practicum Evaluation

The School employs a model of field practicum evaluation in which the field instructor rates the student on a 1-5 scale on competency-associated practice behaviors each semester of field practicum. The evaluation also includes descriptions of the student’s field work assignments, illustrative examples to support the competency rating, and a summary rating of the student’s practice competency overall and in the student’s advanced concentration area. Because we expect students to progress in their mastery from core (foundational) practice behaviors to advanced methods practice behaviors, we use two different field practicum evaluation forms.
