New zoom feature added to exam software, effective May 6, 2013
ASWB is very pleased to announce a new software feature available at Pearson VUE test centers for the social work licensing examinations. As of May 6, candidates taking an ASWB exam have the option to display a magnified view of the screen.
Test-takers can select from preset zoom levels for viewing the exam at any point during the test. These zoom levels will magnify the text on the screen for all exam content.
This feature has minimal impact on other functions of the testing software for those who use it. Test-takers who opt not to use the zoom feature will see no impact at all from this change. Review the feature tutorial.
