The interactive video quiz follows a contact visit vignette. Crystal Smith has been living in a group home following physical abuse at home. In the video, a social worker conducts an ongoing interview with Crystal, located at the group home. Pauses throughout the video provide the learner with opportunities to practice editing case note examples to be more concise. The learner is also asked to watch a brief segment of the video and record a case note detailing the segment in a concise manner. The total video run time is approximately 2 minutes and automated feedback is provided for all self-assessment questions.
Case notes are records of interactions children, families, and persons relevant to a given case or incident attended to by a social worker. Good case notes employ strategic, insightful inquiry and an understanding of larger case processes. When well written, case notes provide accurate, objective descriptions grounded in fact and evidence. They leverage a social worker's assessments and opinions thoughtfully, but never include an undue amount of either.
This interactive video is interspersed with questions probing the viewer's understanding of fact and evidence and how to detect unnecessary use of assessment or opinion in case notes. It contextualizes the skills being taught in a realistic scenario, an investigative interview where a social worker is trying to assess whether a claim of physical abuse can be substantiated, and aims to enable learners to differentiate and identify correct / incorrect uses of fact & evidence , assessment & opinion.
