New Test Versions and Reading Lists Available (PSUP, PL, PDET, FCO)

Due to recent updates to the published source material for our series of Police Supervisor (PSUP), Police Lieutenant (PL), Fire Company Officer (FCO), and Police Detective (PDET), we have decided to update several of the test questions that appear in those test forms.  In addition, we have updated the reading lists belonging to each test to reflect the most current published source material.

To assist our customers in more easily recognizing which test version they are administering, we have reprinted the new tests under new names. The new tests correspond to the old ones and have undergone changes as follows:

If you’ve already distributed the reading lists for any of the older versions of these tests, then you do not need to take any further action to redistribute a new reading list. When you order your test, just make sure to order the test that matches the reading list you provided to your candidates. We will retain sufficient stock of the existing tests to accommodate those processes that have already begun.

At this point forward, we will be providing the updated reading lists for all new orders. If you’d like to request the new reading list, you may do so here: http://ipma-hr.org/assessment/support/readinglist.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this update.

Introducing OTAS – Your new online test implementation solution!

Online Test Administration Service

IPMA-HR’s Assessment Services Department would like to announce a new method of test implementation, the Online Test Administration Service, or OTAS for short!

It has taken many years to find the right partner to allow us to take our tests to the online space and a few more after that to test out and tinker with it, in order to get it just right.

So it brings us great pleasure that starting today, you can administer the following tests via OTAS:

Police Supervisor (PSUP) Series

Our goal is to get most of our test catalog up and ready for OTAS implementation by the end of 2014.

To get started, you can visit the OTAS landing page, read through the FAQs, or take a sample test, from the candidate perspective.

We want you to keep in mind that the OTAS system will change and improve with your use and feedback. This will be an evolving product, so get excited for the future.

Stay tuned to the ASR for followup posts detailing additional features and details about this new system. We are very excited to finally be able to share it with you.

First Line Supervisor Tests Updated and New Reading Lists

Due to recent updates to the published source material for our First Line Supervisor tests, ECC-FLS 102 and CF-FLS 102, we have had to make updates to some of the test questions that appear in those tests.

As a result of these updates, we are reprinting the tests under new names. The new tests correspond to the old ones as follows:

If you’ve already distributed the reading lists for either test you do not need to take any further action or redistribute a new reading list. When you order your test, just make sure to order the test that matches the reading list you provided to your candidates. We will retain sufficient stock to fulfill all orders of the older test.

From this point forward, we will be providing the CF-FLS 202 and ECC-FLS 202 reading lists only. If you’d like to request the new reading list, you may do so here.

In addition to the CF and ECC First Line Supervisor reading list update, the PSUP series’ (301/302/303) reading list also experienced an update. Unlike the other two tests, it does not require any items to be replaced.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this update.
