Employment based field learning applications and guidelines:

Student Evaluation Forms

The assessment of students in field is based upon the CSWE Core Competencies. The field instructor, in collaboration with the student, works to evaluate the student’s progress over the course of the year.

Initial Educational Statement

The Initial Educational Statement should be completed by the field instructor and student collaboratively. Part I, the Orientation and Field Instruction Plan, should be completed within the first two weeks of placement. Part II provides a baseline assessment of the student’s skill level, establishes the learning plan for the remainder of the semester, and provides an initial indication of the grade level of the student’s performance in the early stages of placement. Part II should be completed in the 7th week of field placement.

Mid-Year Evaluation

The Mid-Year Evaluation is completed at the end of the first semester of either the foundation year or the advanced concentration year and after the student has finished the 300 hours required for field instruction. The field instructor completes the evaluation in collaboration with the student, and the evaluation signed by both. The faculty advisor reviews the evaluation as a major component of assigning a grade for Field Instruction. (The faculty advisor will not be able to give a grade without a completed evaluation).

Final Evaluation

This evaluation is completed at the end of the second semester of either the foundation or advanced concentration placement, after the student has finished the additional 300 hours required for Field Instruction (and a total of 600 hours for each of the foundation and advanced concentration placements). The field instructor completes the evaluation in collaboration with the student, and the evaluation signed by both. The faculty advisor reviews the Final Evaluation as a major component of the process of assigning a grade for Field Instruction II or IV. (The faculty advisor will not be able to give a grade without a completed evaluation.).

Form Instructions: Save a copy of the PDF form(s) to your computer prior to completing the evaluation form. The field instructor and student should both sign the evaluation form. The evaluation can be scanned and emailed to field.learning@nyu.edu or and faxed to (212) 995-4533. Evaluations can also be hand delivered or mailed to:
