Examination Content Outlines
A note on the DSM:
The planned fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is due for publication in May 2013 and will supersede the DSM-IV-TR, which was last revised in 2000. The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) will be reviewing and evaluating the implications of DSM-5 for the social work licensing examinations before making any needed changes.
The current ASWB examinations reflect the content contained in the DSM-IV-TR. ASWB is always committed to providing sufficient information to social work candidates to prepare for ASWB examinations. No changes to the ASWB examinations that reflect only DSM-5 will be made before January 2015.
The content outline for each ASWB examination defines the content that will be measured on the exam. The content outlines were developed through the practice analyses conducted with licensed social workers in a variety of practice settings across the United States and Canada.
Each content outline is organized into content areas, competencies, and knowledge, skills and abilities statements (KSAs).
The following example illustrates the relationship of an ASWB exam question to the Content Area, Competency, and KSA to which it corresponds.
