New Entry Level Police Test

In case you haven’t heard we now have a replacement test for the retired PO-EL 203-NC test. This new test, the PO-EL 204-NC, is an exact replica of the old test and can be utilized in the same exact way.

The new test assesses critical abilities of an entry-level police officer candidate. Criterion-related validation studies show that this test effectively predicts performance in both the police academy and on the job. No prior police training or experience is assumed.

The test is still 100 items, with a 1 hour 45 minutes time limit (plus 25 minutes for the Test Information Packet). It also features the same content areas:

PO-EL 204-NC (TIP) Test
Content Area Number of Items
Observation & Memory (Wanted Posters) 25
Ability to Learn Police Material 25
Police Interest Questionnaire (Non-Cognitive) 30
Situational Judgment, Problem Solving &
Reading Comprehension
20
Total 100

Remember you must be a TSA Signer in order to request a FREE inspection copy or order a test.

Police Detective Test Updated to New Version

As a result of updates to the books that support our police detective tests and our commitment to making sure our tests are the absolute best they can be, we’ve released an update the PDET 101 Police Detective test. Because of these changes, the name of the test has been updated as follows:

PREVIOUS TEST ALSO KNOWN AS NEW TEST
PDET 101 PDET 2.1 PDET 201

Five questions were replaced from the PDET 101 to create the new PDET 201. These changes are a result of new editions to books that appear on the test’s reading list. The old questions were no longer supported by the new books, so we replaced them.

It is important to note that all replacement questions were written to assess the same content areas as the original questions and are supported by the books on the current reading list, dated March 2012. Continue reading
