Assessment Management for Social Work Programs
Accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) helps you graduate students prepared to earn licensure and find work in the field. CSWE evaluates programs based on both implicit and explicit curriculum.
To meet CSWE’s explicit curriculum requirements, social work programs must use a competency-based education framework to measure student learning outcomes. Tevera’s assessment management tools allow your program to evaluate and aggregate students’ performance outcomes from real or simulated practice and other artifacts, including:
- Competency-based papers
- Capstone projects
- Exit exams
- Seminar assignments
- Final presentations
With Tevera’s rubrics, you can customize assessment criteria and outcome measure benchmarks for thorough student competency evaluations. We also have ready-to-use learning agreements and performance evaluations pre-built for you, based on CSWE requirements, which you are welcome to adopt or adjust as necessary! Whether you use our best practice options, or your program’s own custom evaluations and assessments, we’ll tie your rubrics to CSWE competencies so that you can aggregate data across all assessment points for comprehensive reporting.
Field Practicum in Social Work
Field experience is a signature pedagogy of social work education and you need the right tools to manage this critical aspect of the student experience. Tevera’s field practicum platform is placement software and so much more, encompassing agency relationship management and the entire student field experience, in one place.
Our centralized platform brings field instructors and task supervisors in seamlessly, as well, so that they can more easily collaborate on learning agreements, review students’ hours, and evaluate student performance.
Even after graduation, students retain access to their logged hours and activities and continue to track time toward licensure applications in Tevera. Their evaluations and activity logs stored in the system allow them to create a portfolio that helps them find fulfilling work in the field after graduation.
