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.
|December 1, 2017||Release revised versions of the Online Practice Tests (Bachelors, Masters, and Clinical only)
Customers who wish to use the existing version of the online practice test must purchase and log in to the practice test prior to December 1, 2017. After that date, all online practice tests will reflect the new content, unless the user has already logged in.
|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.
