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 & Final Evaluations
The Mid-Year Evaluation is completed at the end of the first semester of either the undergraduate senior year, MSW generalist practice year, or the MSW specialized practice year and after the student has finished the 300 hours required for field instruction.
The Final Evaluation is completed at the end of the second semester of either the undergraduate senior year, MSW generalist year, or the MSW specialized practice year and after the student has completed 600 hours required for field instruction.
The field instructor completes and submits the evaluation online and the student is prompted via email to login and review and submit the evaluation.
The faculty advisor reviews the evaluation and assigns the grade. The evaluation is 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).
