The Loma Linda University Department of Social Work and Social Ecology views program assessment as an integral component of competency-based education. Building on the processes specific to courses, the faculty has developed a system of continuous assessment of student learning. As such, designated course assignments along with other developed instruments are used to measure each of the CSWE core Competencies and program's outcomes. A Program Assessment and Continuous Improvement Report is generated yearly by the MSW Curriculum Committee for engaged faculty analysis. This process allows for continuous quality improvement and ensures the ongoing educational effectiveness of the MSW Program.
