Toward an Evaluation Framework for Doctoral Education in Social Work: A 10-Year Retrospective of One PhD Program's Assessment Experiences
Bentley, Kia J.
Journal of Social Work Education, v49 n1 p30-47 2013
This article presents a framework for evaluation in social work doctoral education and details 10 years of successes and challenges in one PhD program's use of the framework, including planning and implementing specific assessment activities around student learning outcomes and larger program goals. The article argues that a range of innovative and traditional internal and external assessment strategies can be tailored to the needs and resources of other programs. Easily adaptable exemplars, rubrics and rating forms, measurement devices, and assessment reports are provided. The article ends by highlighting the ways used to build student, faculty, and alumni participation in evaluative activities and by proposing ideas for related research assessment. (Contains 5 figures and 1 table.)
