2017 Analysis of the Practice of Social Work | ASWB 12 One-third (33%) of the respondents indicated their primary practice/work setting was a not-for-profit organization The primary function of respondents’ practice/work setting tended to be mental and/or behavioral health (54%); medical, hospital, or health services (28%); family and children’s services (27%); and advocacy (24%). It is important to note that a clerical error was made during the preparation of the background questionnaire that resulted in the omission of two Canadian racial/ethnic identification categories (i.e., “Black” and “Japanese”). To address this issue, ASWB conducted a follow-up survey of 4,088 Canadian respondents to obtain additional demographic information. The results of the follow-up analysis indicate that approximately 3.7% of the sample was Black and 0.4% was Japanese. These results are generally consistent with current census estimates for the entire population of Canada. Analysis of Task Survey Results For each task statement, HumRRO computed the sample size (i.e., number of respondents who made a frequency and/or an importance rating), mean frequency and importance ratings, standard deviation, and response percentage (i.e., proportion of respondents indicating they perform the task at least annually). Because the purpose of the practice analysis is to identify tasks that are relevant to current professional practice, ASWB, HumRRO, and the Oversight Panel established the following decision rule to differentiate between statements: for a task to be considered relevant, it must be performed at least annually by at least 25% of respondents and must be considered important (i.e., average importance rating of 3.00 or higher). Statements that failed to meet one or both of these criteria were flagged for subsequent review by the Task Force. (See Phase 4 below.) Analysis of Knowledge Requirements Survey Results Analysis of the knowledge requirements survey results was carried out in a similar manner as the task survey. For each knowledge statement, HumRRO computed the sample size (i.e., number of respondents who provided an importance rating), mean importance ratings, standard deviation, and response percentage (i.e., proportion of respondents reporting the knowledge is important). Once again, ASWB, HumRRO, and the Oversight Panel established a decision rule to differentiate between statements. In this analysis, the decision rule was the following: In order for a knowledge statement to be considered relevant, it must have received an average importance rating of 3.00 or higher. Statements that failed to meet this criterion were flagged for subsequent review by the Task Force. (See Phase 4 below.) Interrater Consistency and Agreement

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
