Social work educators and field instructors need reliable and valid tools to assess students achievement of competence. Through a program of research at the University of Toronto, a range of innovative tools have been developed and tested as well as the use of standardized human simulation in an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) adapted for social work. This presentation from the 2014 Title IV-E Summer Field Institutel reviews these tools and presents guidelines for designing and implementing simulation as an adjunct to traditional field evaluation. Marion Bogo, the presenter, is the coauthor of the seminal book on field education, The Practice of Field Instruction in Social Work (1998, Columbia University Press), of Social Work Practice: Concepts, Processes, and Interviewing (2006, Columbia University Press), and Achieving Competence in Social Work through Field Education (2010, University of Toronto Press), and over 100 book chapters and peer-reviewed articles on social work education and educational outcomes assessment.
