Subject:Child Welfare Training Project

Hello all, I am wondering if anybody knows of existing scales or measurement tools created to assess Title IV-E (Child Welfare Training Project) students’ levels of confidence in their preparation, knowledge, skills, and abilities related to working in child welfare before and after their participation in the project. It is my hope that I can collect this information and use it in conjunction with future data collection focused on the project participants’ performance as a case worker and child/family outcomes during their 2 year work commitment with child protective services. Also, it would be very helpful to hear what kinds of research other Title IV-E projects have done. Thank you!
