After completing the readings for week 4, please discuss the following questions:


Discuss how the article Measuring Outcomes to Improve Social Services relates to the evaluation process at your agency (make sure to discuss with either your supervisor or program director).


Discuss any areas of evaluation you feel have been omitted and should be included regarding measuring outcomes to improve services at your agency.


How does the information in Performance Improvement and Outcome Monitoring relate to how you will evaluate your own practice of service delivery?


Discuss how your own self-assessment and awareness connects to your ability to perform effective evaluation of your own practice activities. Be specific to yourself and do not generalize to “all social workers.”
