Psychosocial-Psychoeducational Assessment: Evaluation and assessment of student needs is an integral part of School Social Work. This requires competency in providing a written document that clearly assesses and evaluates student needs. This assessment requires skills in evaluation of student needs and strengths, as well as gathering a social/developmental/educational history. A format for this process will be provided by the instructor (attached) and the students will be responsible for completing a fictional case-study and submitting a comprehensive psycho-educational assessment that includes recommendations for addressing and meeting student needs. This assessment should include the following: tests administered (hypothetically what would you use as an assessment tool), strengths, needs, educational needs, psychosocial needs, and recommendations.
