All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning
outcomes. Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that comprise
the accreditation standards of the Council on Social Work Education. These competencies

programs for each competency. An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered
by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.
