Because the social work licensing exams are high-stakes tests, ASWB strives to be transparent about the upcoming changes and has laid out a plan for the implementation of the new exams and updates to exam-related materials.
|April 2017||New social work licensing exams announced
|June 15, 2017||Publish supplement to the ASWB Guide to the Social Work Exams
All purchasers of the exam guide will receive a supplement that explains the changes to the 2018 licensing exams and includes full content outlines and revised KSA statements for all of the exams.
|Fourth quarter 2017||Release revised versions of the Online Practice Tests (Bachelors, Masters, and Clinical only)
ASWB’s Online Practice Tests will move over to the new exam content in the fourth quarter of 2017. Registered exam candidates will be notified about the date of this change prior to the implementation.
|January 2018||New social work licensing exams released
Exam candidates testing ON OR AFTER January 2, 2018, will be tested on the new exam content.
