THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE CASEWORK KNOWLEDGE, THE TULANE ASSESSMENT SCALE FOR CASEWORKERS.
GOLDSTEIN, HARRIS K.
REPORTED WERE SOME PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN MEASURING SOCIAL WORK COMPETENCE OR SOCIAL CASEWORK KNOWLEDGE, SOME PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE "TULANE ASSESSMENT SCALE" (TASC) FOR CASEWORKERS. TASC WAS ADMINISTERED TO A TOTAL OF 378 RESPONDENTS, INCLUDING FIRST- AND SECOND-YEAR STUDENTS FROM SCHOOLS OF SOCIAL WORK AND PRACTICING CASEWORKERS WITH MASTER'S DEGREES. ITS PURPOSE WAS TO MEASURE CERTAIN IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF CASEWORK COMPETENCE, EMPHASIZING OBSERVATIONS OF WHAT A STUDENT OR WORKER KNEW, RATHER THAN TO REVIEW THE EXPERIENCES OR THE METHODS THAT HELPED IN HIS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. THE RELIABILITY OF THE TASC WAS FOUND TO BE EQUAL TO OR BETTER THAN MANY OTHER INSTRUMENTS IN COMMON USE IN PSYCHOLOGY AND SOCIOLOGY AS WELL AS OTHERS IN USE IN THE FIELD OF SOCIAL WORK. IT WAS CONSIDERED A USEFUL TEST BECAUSE IT COULD BE ADMINISTERED IN ONLY 1 1/2 HOURS TO AS MANY AS 100 RESPONDENTS. (JH)
