IPMA-HR Assessment Services

Getting Started

For over 70 years, the public sector has relied on IPMA-HR's Assessment Services for our expertise, quality, and customer service. We work with agencies and departments to ensure they have the critical information they need to make long-term, successful hiring decisions.

Find a Test

The first step to a successful selection process is to choose an assessment that measures the most important competencies needed for the job. IPMA-HR offers exams to evaluate candidates for selection to police, fire, corrections, and public works positions. 

Authorized IPMA-HR test users can login and submit test orders through the individual product pages linked below.

Test users are also encouraged to browse our Technical Report and Test Response Data Report Libraries for development and performance information specific to each assessment. 

Select Administration Type

Additionally, IPMA-HR offers its exams with live remote proctoring to equip agencies with the ability to allow job candidates to take tests from any location — wherever they have a computer with a high-speed internet connection. This can extend your reach and expand the opportunity to join your agency to those located in remote areas.
