Form AS4 (M) Provide table(s) to support self-study narrative addressing the accreditation standards below.
This form 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 updates (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. These competencies are dimensions of social work practice that all social workers are expected to master during their professional training. A measurement benchmark is set by the social work programs for each competency.
An assessment score at or above that benchmark (a minimum of 3 points on both behavioral and overall competency measures) is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.

*Data for the Organization and Community Leadership Area of Specialized Practice can be found in a separate table. It is only available aggregated for all program options because of the small number of students choosing this path. If data were to be segregated by program option, the resulting cells would be too small for meaningful interpretation.
**This is an Advanced Standing only program option so there is no data for Generalist Practice.
