The Licensed Clinical Social Worker Exam blog is back in action after a long hiatus. Up now, a survey about what readers are hoping for in future posts. A nice place to get focused on what really matters on the ASWB exam.
From a recent post, here's a section about ASWB exam scoring.
Q: How many questions do you have to get right to pass the ASWB exam?
The answer is...no one can say for sure. There are multiple exams being given at the same level, at the same time around the country. From the ASWB:
Generally, pass points range from 90 to 107 correct answers of the 150 scored questions.
Okay, 90/150 to 107/150. That's [opens calculator] between 60 and 71%. Meaning that on some versions of the exam, you can miss nearly half the questions and still arrive at a pass sheet after your four-hour sit. If you're checking the math, remember, it's 90 out of 150, not 170. Twenty questions are being tested for future exam use and aren't counted for scoring.
