Exam Committee

Instead of its usual four meetings per year to approve questions to be pretested on the ASWB social work exams, ASWB’s Examination Committee of 18 volunteer subject matter experts (SMEs) met twice: in August and October. The rest of the year, staff and many SMEs were busy preparing to launch new exams in 2018 based on the 2017 practice analysis.

ITEMS database

A new exam item database, called ITEMS DB, launched to help streamline item creation and revision, with excellent reviews from members of the Examination Committee.
