Sequencing Tasks in Developing an Accredited Social Work Program and Assessing Program Outcomes

Charles Zastrow, Tim Reutebuch

Abstract


Two of the major challenges for developing an accredited social work program are
to sequence the tasks in developing an educational program and to develop
accurate and useful assessment instruments. A model for sequencing the tasks is
presented, and a field placement evaluation instrument is highlighted in assessing
the extent to which students are attaining the program objectives. Programs need to
utilize multiple measures of program outcomes.
