Our Response to the ASWB Pass Rate Analysis

Our Response to the ASWB Pass Rate Analysis

Recently, the ASWB released its first-ever pass-rate analysis (see here for full details).

Among other findings, the data revealed disturbing and significant disparities between racial groups, especially for Black test takers.

For example, only 52% of Black test takers passed the exam between 2018 and 2021, compared to 91% of White test takers.

Additionally, test takers with English as a second language had a pass rate of 63% compared to 80% for test takers whose primary language was English.

These disparities are simply not acceptable.

What is Agents of Change Doing to Help?

  1. We aren’t accepting this disparity as something that can’t be changed.
  2. We are encouraging our clients to speak up and supporting them when they do.
  3. We will continue to produce as much free study material as possible through our YouTube channel, Podcast, Blog, and release as many free questions as possible. 
  4. We will expand access to our materials through the annual Agents of Change Scholarship, which is open for applications each Winter.

We encourage you to continue to share feedback directly with the ASWB (contact link) and the NASW (contact link) about your test experiences.  

We look forward to a day when the ASWB exam is significantly more equitable and we will do our part to help raise awareness to ensure a path to licensure is attainable for all candidates.
