I'm looking for what other programs are doing to evaluate student learning in field.
We administer a comprehensive exam within a few weeks of students graduating with questions aligned with the learning competencies. It serves the dual purpose of evaluation and preparation for the licensure exam.
The answer is both - we use the exam data for assessment purposes and students are expected to pass in order to graduate. We have a two-track option in our MSW program - either a thesis track or a comprehensive exam track. Most students take the exam - we undergo significant preparation for the exam and if students underperform, we provide individualized support to address any barriers and allow a re-take when needed.
