1. SWK 631: faculty are pleased with the high percentage of students who met expectations. The 3 students who did not meet expectations did not address copious feedback from faculty members to improve this section of their paper.
2. SWK 611/613: Field instructors (social work practitioners) may not be able to accurately judge these very ‘academic’ practice behaviors in the same context as a faculty member. Note: there are many practice behaviors for each competency and an average score of these behaviors count for the overall competency. Thus, if students are not achieving in one practice behavior, they may be exceeding in others which is acceptable for the accrediting body (CSWE).
