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.

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
