Entry-Level Firefighter Validation Study

We are currently in the process of validating our entry-level firefighter test series.  To do this, we are gathering the test scores received by current firefighters who took a test from the FF-EL series (FF-EL 100, 200, or 300).  We are also collecting demographic data of participating firefighters to conduct fairness and adverse impact analysis. Once we have this information, we will be able to better understand how the tests are currently performing by seeing how strongly one's test score predicts their on-the-job performance.

If you would like to participate, please use the following link to provide FF-EL scores and demographic data: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FFELScores

By participating in this development project, your agency will receive a discount of $100 off a future test order.  In addition, this validation study will provide agencies with direct evidence to support the use of tests from the FF-EL series in their department.  If you have further questions feel free to contact our Research Associate, Julia Hind-Smith.

Please Note: All information gathered for this study will remain strictly confidential.  The data gathered will be combined with data from other departments and only reported in the form of group statistics.
