CalSWEC's Evaluation Framework
CalSWEC's Evaluation Framework, which applies to all its initiatives—Child Welfare, Mental Health, and Aging—was developed to assess the impact of CalSWEC’s educational and training programs on the quantity and quality of California's social workers who work with disadvantaged populations in public human services. This includes how well these social workers are prepared for and how long they remain in their respective fields. The Framework utilizes two tiers.
CalSWEC's evaluation is driven by state and federal regulations for education and training; its Evaluation Framework is aligned with its Mission and Goals. The extent to which CalSWEC’s efforts have increased the numbers of professionally educated public sector social workers who work with the poor and disadvantaged is evaluated along with the extent to which those efforts have diversified the professional workforce by creating access to higher education and in-service training.
Broad, systematic dissemination of evaluation results is intrinsic to CalSWEC’s overall goals and supports the implementation of new policies, evidence-based practice, evidence-informed curricula, and new practice models for public human services.
