Assess entry-level candidates’ maturity, motivation, decision-making, communication, and interpersonal skills in a face-to-face setting with IPMA-HR’s Police Officer Structured Interview System (POSIS). This innovative assessment system makes it easy for you to:
Based on extensive research and development methods, including studies with nearly 1,000 candidates, it has been determined that the scores obtained through POSIS are very reliable and valid. With a high rate of consistency across multiple interviewers and panels, the POSIS system has a remarkably high degree of acceptance from agency administrators, examiners and candidates.
POSIS has everything you need, including:
- Administrator’s Manual to guide you through the process, with all the forms you need and an Excel spreadsheet to assist in calculating final scores.
- Panelist Training Manual with PowerPoint Presentation and Video that includes videotaped "candidates" to give panelists scoring practice.
- Panelist Booklets with questions, scoring guidance, benchmarks and rating scales.
- Score Sheets and all other forms you’ll need.
A description of each form is included in the free POSIS inspection copy. Contact the Assessment Services Department to request an inspection copy.
