The Written Exam: Entrance Exam Services
Our pre-employment entrance examination is specifically tailored for a target job in a public safety position so your agency can hire the right candidates, the first time. Based on the intimate knowledge of law enforcement positions, our exam was developed to measure the key skills, abilities and other characteristics required for job success, and represents state-of-the-art research and design.
Our examination combines four measures into one result, providing a more holistic picture of a test takers’ potential. It combines a challenging cognitive ability measure with three non-cognitive measures: personality constructs, integrity, and biographical data. These four measures produce a score for test takers that is highly predictive of their job success in law enforcement.
Get to Know the Candidate: Candidate Insight Report
PES has created an online Candidate Questionnaire which, through a series of questions, can determine a candidate's qualifications, skills, certifications, and degrees necessary to qualify as a potential new hire. Among their demographics, each candidate must answer questions on veteran's status, certifications, academy experience, education, and additional skills which may benefit them as officers.
Your Eligible Candidate List can be sorted based on the criteria, allowing you to see specific credentials among your eligible group of candidates.
