Written Promotional Exams For Law Enforcement
We offer low cost and
legally defensible written exams and assessment center services, and we specialize in the
advanced Situational - Concept Written Exam for small agencies.
Promoting the candidate with the best study
habits and memory should not be your goal - you want a candidate
with the best knowledge, reasoning, problem-solving and decision-making
ability instead. That's where our Situational - Concept exam comes in -
it reveals who among your candidates is most likely to be the best
supervisor or manager, not who is the best test-taker.
We believe typical multiple-choice exams,
although popular, are fundamentally flawed.
Because multiple choice tests must present the
candidate with the answer as one of the choices, the test is really more
about memory, study habits and test-taking ability, not decision making.
The Situational - Concept exam is written
by a veteran law enforcement professional who has applied the subject
matter and is familiar with the position being tested for (i.e. the
Subject Matter Expert). Our exam writer is a 27+ year veteran ranking
officer who has held almost every position in a medium sized agency. [bio]
Each question on the Situational - Concept
A SITUATION, with a
description of who is involved (citizens / police personnel)
A PROBLEM that has
arisen out of the situation
The problem specifically
involves a CONCEPT in the chosen textbook(s) or
department policies, legal guidelines, etc. that is deemed important
to the position by the Subject Matter Experts
A DECISION that is
made by one of the police personnel at the scene.
The candidate is then asked the simple
question, based on the textbooks and policy or law studied, "was this
Each question is a recreation of what each
supervisor does every day - analyze situations and make decisions.
Nothing could be more job-related than an exam that measures exactly
Seems simple, but it is not. In case after
case, candidates find the exams much more difficult than typical
multiple choice, and unqualified candidates score lower, simply because the correct answer, the "hint," is not
listed among the responses. The candidate must be able to read and
analyze the problem, then correctly apply what they know without the benefit of any visual clues.
We encourage our agencies to apply a time
limit to the exam, to further show which candidate has the best ability
to correctly analyze problems, quickly recall supervisory and management
concepts while under stress, and / or apply department policy and state law.
If your agency is serious about giving a quality,
professional, cost effective and highly job related promotional exam,
consider a custom Situational - Concept exam instead of one of the "off the
shelf" multiple choice exams you can purchase elsewhere.
