The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) is seeking qualified social workers to write questions for the licensing exams used in the United States and Canada.
Interested applicants must have both a degree in social work and a valid social work license, be currently practicing social work (teaching social work courses is also considered practice), and have the ability to produce 30 multiple choice questions that meet ASWB standards. All writers must be able to work with computers and email. Additionally, all writers must attend a training session, to be held August 23-25, 2019. Travel expenses to attend training, including food and lodging, will be paid by ASWB.
Social workers from all levels of social work education, licensure, and experience are needed. Writers from diverse demographic and practice backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Selection is limited to 25-30 writers. Successful applicants will be paid $1,500 for a set of 30 test questions determined to meet ASWB standards, written over a six- to eight-month time frame.
To be considered, applicants must complete all screening documents and supply other information via email by December 31, 2018.
