At the end of each semester, field instructors complete a comprehensive evaluation of the student(s) they supervise in the agency setting, called the Field Practicum Evaluation. The evaluation criteria are based on the CSWE Educational Policies and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) and Practice Behaviors.
- Evaluations for the fall semester must be completed by early December.
- Evaluations for the spring semester must be completed by early May.
It is the field instructor’s responsibility to complete the Field Practicum Evaluation for each student they supervise. The evaluation is designed to be a fully transparent assessment based on dialogue between the field instructor and the student. The student should be given a copy of the completed Field Practicum Evaluation form and complete a separate self-assessment as well. The student’s field advisor should also be given a copy of the completed Field Practicum Evaluation and may also assist the field instructor, as needed, to understand and apply Silberman’s field performance expectations.
Once completed, please share the form(s) with the Field Advisor. They are responsible for assigning and submitting the final field grades.
Fall 2018 Field Practicum Evaluation forms will be available in early October.
