Child Welfare In-Service Training Evaluation

June 2021 update:

For all statewide standardized evaluation materials and instructions, please go to the CACWT login page and log in using your username and password to access evaluation materials.
Note: Only a limited number of existing training cohorts are still using and finishing Common Core 3.0. For Common Core 3.0 evaluation materials, please go to the Common Core 3.0 webpage.  

In collaboration with our In-Service Training Coordinating Partners, CalSWEC supports the development and implementation of a comprehensive strategic plan to evaluate the California Common Core Curricula and Supervisor Core Curricula to evaluate the effectiveness of the continuum of training and professional education to county newly hired public child welfare workers and newly promoted public child welfare supervisors across the state. As a result of the evaluation efforts, more is known about the composition and effectiveness of California's workforce, training system, and Common Core and Supervisor Core curricula. This includes:

  • who has participated in training (basic demographic characteristics of new trainees)
  • whether training has been effective
  • behavior change as a result of training
  • which content areas require revision, and the type of revision needed (deletion, addition to content or delivery methods, etc.)
  • that the data can be used for complementary studies or secondary data analysis (such as analysis of pre and posttraining data in conjunction with the use of the Child Forensic Attitude Scale, or analysis of demographic and test data as part of a study on Stereotype Threat, or comparative analysis of IV-E vs. non IV-E trainee test performance)

In this section, you will find an overview of the current training evaluation models for Common Core Curricula and Supervisor Core Curricula.
