As a result, the content areas and the weights derived from the 2015-16 practice analysis are generally consistent with the 2008-09 study outcomes. A summary of changes for each examination category is provided below. Bachelors Examination Category For the Bachelors licensure exams, the new weights for a given content area changed by no more than two percentage points from the 2008-09 weights. Content Area I. Human Development, Diversity, and Behavior in the Environment decreased slightly, from 27% to 25%. Content Area I.C. Diversity and I.D. Effects of the Environment on Client System Behavior were merged due to overlapping content. In Content Area II. Assessment, competency areas covering assessment techniques were combined and named Assessment Methods and Techniques. The overall weight for this content area rose by one percentage point. Content Area III. Direct and Indirect Practice was renamed Interventions with Clients/Client Systems, and overlap among the competency areas was reduced by grouping similar knowledge areas together. The weight for this content area did not change. The weight for Content Area IV. Professional Relationships, Values, and Ethics, however, increased by 1%, reflecting the importance of demonstrating competence in this area for safe and effective practice.

Human Development, Diversity, and Behavior in the Environment decreased by 1%. Content Area II. Assessment and Intervention Planning remained constant at 24%. Content Area III. Direct and Indirect Practice was renamed Interventions with Clients/Client Systems, and the weight for this area increased by 3%. The competencies in this content area were also renamed to more accurately reflect the practice of social work with diverse clients and client systems. The weight for Content Area IV. Professional Relationships, Values, and Ethics increased by two percentage points, reflecting the importance of demonstrating competence in relationship-building, values, and ethics for safe and effective practice.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
