ASWB offers a great resource for social work educators: a full-length practice test designed for group review
ASWB is pleased to offer a great resource for social work educators trying to help their students better understand the licensing exams. The Group Review Practice Tests for the Bachelors, Masters, and Clinical social work licensing exams are available exclusively to faculty and staff of social work programs accredited by or in candidacy with the Council on Social Work Education or the Canadian Association for Social Work Education.
The group review test was designed to be one component of an overall exam orientation program. When a social work program purchases access to the group practice test, ASWB provides a password that is valid for six months, beginning on the date it is first used. That password can be shared among social work faculty, career development, and continuing education staff. The password gives users access to 170 questions, answers, and rationales over the Internet. Instructors can use an Internet-connected computer and digital projector to review the questions with their students.
The software displays the question, then the answer and rationale with the click of a mouse. You can navigate to any question within the set, so picking up where you left off during the last session is easy, and the questions can be reviewed out of sequence. The group practice test is not scored, so you can pick and choose individual questions for discussion and review, rather than going over the entire set.
In addition, there are two resource documents available to anyone using this group practice test:
- a user’s guide that explains how sample questions are best used in the context of exam preparation
- ASWB’s Examination Candidate Handbook
Both documents can be printed and distributed as you see fit.
The system is designed to accommodate multiple users on the same password simultaneously, so it can be used in a variety of settings during the six months of access.
Access to a single group review test (Bachelors, Masters, or Clinical) is US$300.00. Access to all three group review tests is discounted to US$800.00. ASWB will take orders by email or over the phone and will accept Visa, Mastercard or Discover.
Now for the fine print: This product is ONLY available to CSWE or CASWE accredited or candidacy schools. We offer an individual test price of US$300 or a discounted price of US$800 for purchasing a subscription to all three tests at the same time. Payment buys access for six months (beginning from the first access date). The password for the group review practice test should NOT be distributed to students. Accounts that show patterns of use indicating a violation of this rule will be suspended immediately.
The group review tests contain the same content as our online practice test, which is intended for individual use by registered exam candidates and provides users with a score and diagnostic report.
