This chapter presents a framework for identifying different levels of outcomes for social work education from learner experiences, attitudes, skills and knowledge, through behavioural change, to impacts on organisations and service users. It presents examples of different approaches to the measurement of outcomes and to the use of research designs in social work education and interprofessional education involving social workers and social work students. These examples are drawn from a review of the English language literature (1997-2014). The advantages and disadvantages of different research designs are discussed. Some practicalities concerning the development of an outcomes-based culture in university based education are considered.
