University of Detroit Mercy Baccalaureate Social Work Program Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes Last Completed on (Fall 2021)

Summary of the Program’s Assessment Plan | BSW/Generalist Practice

Program benchmark assignments are designed and included in BSW Program courses in which all BSW students must enroll and complete for degree and graduation requirements. The benchmark assignments are specifically tailored for the measurement of practice behaviors that operationalize competencies located in the various BSW Program curriculum courses. To improve the consistency and thus reliability of the grading of benchmark assignments, BSW course syllabi include grading rubrics which faculty must use for evaluation of student performance student performance data are collected each semester from all sections of all courses. The benchmark target for assignments is that 80% of students will receive a grade of B or better on benchmark assignments. A B or better grade is defined as students earning 84% or more of the 100 points allocated for the designated benchmark assignments.

Form AS4 (B) is used to assist the COA in the evaluation of the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards below:

  • 4.0.2 The program provides its most recent year of summary data and outcomes for the assessment of each of the identified competencies, specifying the percentage of students achieving program benchmarks for each program option.
  • 4.0.3 The program uses Form AS 4(B) and/or Form AS 4(M) to report its most recent assessment outcomes for each program option to constituents and the public on its website and routinely up-dates (minimally every 2 years) its findings.
All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning outcomes. Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that comprise the accreditation standards of the Council on Social Work Education.
