Program Evaluation Instruments

The Child Welfare Education and Research Program, administered by the University of Pittsburgh, School of Social Work has evaluated their Child Welfare Education for Baccalaureates (CWEB) and Child Welfare for Education for Leadership (CWEL) programs annually for over 10 years. This year, with the exception of ‘long-term’ graduates, all surveys were administered online; ‘long-term’ program graduates (1 or more years post-matriculation) were mailed their survey. The goal of surveying students, graduates, school faculty and staff, and child welfare agency administrators is to inform program planning around the value and components of Title IV-E educational traineeships.

The following surveys can be viewed with the links below:

*The Long-term graduates survey includes the Organizational Culture Survey (Glaser, Zamanou, & Hacker, 1987).
**CWEB Current Student and Long-Term Graduate surveys include the short form of the Perceptions of Child Welfare Scale (Auerbach, Zeitlin, Augsberger, McGowan, Claiborne & Lawrence, 2014)
