An Assessment of Student Attitudes Regarding the Field Education Practicum at the University of Connecticut School of Social Work.
Conklin, John J.
A study was done to determine student attitudes towards their experience in the practicum component of the graduate program at the University of Connecticut School of Social Work (UCONN). The program lasts 2 years and the hypothesis was that students had the same level of satisfaction for both years. A questionnaire was developed and sent to 248 first and second year students. The instrument asked 25 demographic questions, 13 Likert scale questions and one open-ended question for other comments. Fifty-one percent responded, and of those, 46 percent were first year students and 54 percent were second year students. Analysis of responses indicated the groups were comparable with no significant attitudinal differences toward the field experience. Attitudinal comparisons were also made about supervision and advisement, with no statistically significant differences between the two classes. The questionnaire is appended.
