4 Competency Based Education: - Focuses on outcomes of learning. - Addresses what students are expected to do rather than on what they are expected to learn about. - Advocates defining educational goals in terms of precise measurable descriptions of knowledge, skills, and behaviors students should possess at end of the quarter/year.

5 Competency Definitions and Goals  Competencies are measurable practice behaviors that are comprised of knowledge, values, and skills.  The goal of the outcome approach is to demonstrate the integration and application of the competencies in practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.

6 Competency Based Education 1. Specific, measurable competency activities. 2. Content based on student goals (outcome/competencies). 3. Student continues in program until demonstrating competency. 4. Uses a variety of instructional techniques and group activities.

7 Competency Based Field Education 5. Focus is on what the student needs to learn/demonstrate, in a social work practice context. 6. Provides students with immediate feedback on assessment performance. 7. Paces instruction to the students needs. 8. Have students demonstrate competency based on measurable learning activities.

8 Compentency Assessment 9. Assessment/Measurement Methods may Include:  observed practice  oral/written reports  video/audio tapes  reflective journal entries  presentations  case consultations

9 Field Education  Build Competencies (set by CSWE/EPAS standards) and  Practice Behaviors (defined by CSWE/SSW) through  Learning experiences (Student/Field Instructor), evaluated by  Assessment/Measurement Methods (Field Instructor/Student), and documented in  Evaluation (Field Instructor/Student/Field Faculty)
