Social Workers must participate in many interdisciplinary teams. The assignment

Social Workers must participate in many interdisciplinary teams. The assignment calls for you to review and then write a two-page paper on how you view interprofessional collaboration will impact your practice. Each student will write a 2-page research paper on the responsibilities of inter-professional social workers are.

This course typically involves designing and conducting a program evaluation thr

This course typically involves designing and conducting a program evaluation through a service-learning project with a community-based agency. However, given the current COVID-19 circumstances and the fully online nature of this class, I have adapted the assignment to eliminate the need to visit with or collect data from service agencies, providers, or service users. Instead, the goal of this project is to learn the process of designing a program evaluation study. You will work through all evaluation design steps, from defining the problem to creating a plan to disseminate findings. While you are not actually conducting the study, the proposal should be written with enough detail that you could carry it out.
The final proposal should be prepared as if you were planning to submit it to the agency or a funder. It should be clearly written, free of grammatical and spelling errors, well organized, and should fully address the following requirements.
Your paper should be organized into the following sections. The bullet points below each section are guides for the type of information expected in each section. The specific details of what is included in each section will vary based on the type of evaluation you are conducting.
Statement of the Problem
What problem or need is the program addressing (e.g., homelessness, opioid abuse, high school dropout rates)?
Describe what is known about the problem using peer reviewed literature and publicly available data.
Describe the problem, if possible, for the program’s catchment area. For example, if the program serves Tarrant County, use data at the county level to describe the problem.
Describe the Agency and its Program
What kind of agency is it and what is its history??
What geographic area does it serve?
What kinds of services does it offer and to what client groups?
What program are you evaluating?
What does the program provide, to whom, and how (be specific)?
Literature Review
What is the evidence base for the program model?
To what extent has the model, or similar program models, been evaluated?
What did similar evaluations find? In other words, if you’re doing an outcome evaluation of a housing first program, describe what other outcome evaluations of housing first programs found.
Evaluation Design and Methods
Describe in detail how you will conduct the evaluation.
Are you using a particular study design (e.g., experimental, quasi-experimental)? Will you have multiple groups?
What data will you collect, from who, how, and how often?
Will you need a sampling plan? What will it be?
Are their public data sources you will use? This is especially relevant for needs assessments or when evaluation programs seeking to make community-level impacts.
Will you need to request data from the agency/program, such as case notes, administrative records, or financial information?
Analysis Plan
How will you analyze the data you collect to answer your evaluation question(s)?
Strengths and Limitations
What are the strengths of your study design?
What threats are you concerned about and how (if possible) will you address them?
What are the limitations of your study design? What will it NOT be able to tell you?
Who will be interested in your study findings?
How will you share your findings? Be creative. Consider dissemination strategies, such as written reports, fact sheets, press releases, social media campaigns, info graphics, presentations, videos, etc.
What is the value of this study? How might the program use its findings?
Papers should be typed, double spaced, using 1-inch margins, 12 point Times New Roman font. Title and reference pages are required. An abstract is not required. Follow APA 6th or 7th Edition style guidelines. Evaluation proposals (not including title and reference pages) should not exceed 20 pages.

Students will select three articles on their topic of interest for this course,

Students will select three articles on their topic of interest for this course, and write a two page article critique on each article (in the critique you should discuss methodological elements such as research design, hypothesis and variables, sampling, measurement, and data collection with details) Following the three critiques, you should include a 2 page summary of new learning from the articles, and compare/contrast the methodology elements from the articles reviewed with details. Class terminology should be used throughout the summary section when discussing the articles). The critiques should be integrated into one assignment with a cover page. Each article critique should begin with the APA reference listing at the top, followed by a ½ page succinct summary of the paper. This must be in your own words, and not copied from the article or the abstract. Copying will result in a 0 and a referral for academic dishonesty. Following the summary, the following should be discussed and critiqued: research question/hypothesis, ethics, variables, design, recruitment and sampling, and data collection. The critique should discuss, using class terminology, each method for the article, and the strengths and weaknesses of that method.
Stylistic guidelines
Points have been assigned for stylistic considerations. All papers are to be word processed. All main headings and sub-headings given above (except for “Stylistic guidelines”) should be used as main headings in the paper. Use double space. Font size should not be smaller or larger than 12. The margin on all four sides of the paper should be one inch wide. The paper must conform to APA style requirements. For guidelines refer to the latest edition of the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association. Washington, D.C: American Psychological Association.
The paper is to be spell-checked and proofread for typos and problems with grammar and writing style. Good writing is extremely important. Even if the ideas are good, points will be deducted for poorly written papers.

Using a current, past, or hypothetical client OR the target population of an age

Using a current, past, or hypothetical client OR the target population of an agency or of a policy framework, please apply the Measurement Based Care approach to guide either case conceptualization, or administrative / policy response to a specific problem.
Introduction: Please use your Assignment 1 write-up as the introduction (items 1 and 2 of the following outline)
Problem statement (in the context of a clinical case, or administrative or policy-related situation)
Theory framework guiding response to the problem (for clinical cases may be represented by the intervention methodology), key constructs of the theory framework.
Measurement-Based Care – Please further outline what, and how, you will measure, to evaluate how effectively the Service System in charge is addressing the Problem.
WHAT’s the Measurable Outcome What characteristics (outcomes, predictors and, if needed, mediators and/or moderators) should be measured to represent relevant constructs of the theory framework, to conceptualize the clinical case, or build administrative strategy, or policy addressing the problem you described in the Introduction? Specify: Do you need, for your narrative, a SCREENER or a CLINICAL MEASURE?
Please express the #3 write-up on a PATH DIAGRAM (use one from Assignment 1).
Operationalize construct(s) you have to measure:
identify measure (screener OR clinical measure) – the measurement tool/instrument,
report their reliability (Internal Consistency Cronbach’s Alpha – should be 0.7 or more),
if available, report validity.
whether the measure has been tested in the population you are serving.
if not tested in the target population, how will you address it? If the study describing the measure that you find is not “validated” in your population of interest, write: “Efforts will be made to assure reliability and validity of this measurement tool in our population of interest.”
Discuss measurement schedule
who collects data,
where (school, “point of service”, police station, etc.),
how frequently
How will measured results inform your practice or policy decision-making
Discuss (imaginary) implementation issues
Is the organization you describe well prepared for adapting to the results of your (imaginary!) evaluation?
