Subject:FW: identifying items from worker surveys re: their perception of their own practice

Hi Everyone, We are doing a program evaluation of a child welfare agency and would like to include questions in the worker survey that may yield some information about worker skills, for example, ability to engage clients, frequency of specific goal setting, using actual client progress vs. “working the plan” to evaluate success, and so on. Does anyone have any ideas or references regarding instruments or scales that have attempted to obtain some idea of worker functioning in practice from their own self reports in a written survey format, possibly using Likert-type scaling? Thanks very much! Susan Susan J. Wells Professor Centre for the Study of Services to Children and Families http://csscf.ok.ubc.ca/ Irving K.
