You need a promotional test for an upper-ranking position in your department. After looking through our stock promotional tests, you find one that would work … if only this was different or that was added.
Add test items, delete test items, even write new ones: it’s your choice! With IPMA-HR’s Semi-Stock Promotional Test Service, we’ll create a promotional test that allows you to assess the competencies most important for success in the upper ranks of your police or fire department.
A semi-stock promotional test uses one of our stock promotional tests as its base. Create your own unique semi-stock promotional test by deleting test items and/or adding test items from two optional sources: our Test Item Bank and our Item Writing Service.
Please email the Assessment Services Department to request a free Semi-Stock Test Packet. Let us know which stock promotional test you are interested in customizing to your needs. A Test Security Agreement must be on file prior to receiving the packet.
We also offer the opportunity to use your own texts, departmental policies and standard operating procedures from which our professional item writers can create questions that can be added to questions you choose from the knowledge areas available. (Please note that IPMA-HR's membership discount cannot be used toward this service.)
Please be aware that you will work with an IPMA-HR representative to create a required reading list for this test. Candidates must receive this reading list 60 days or more prior to the exam. Be sure to allow enough time for candidates to locate a copy of each book (which could take up to two weeks if candidates order copies online) and study all of the books (allow a minimum of 60 days).
