PO-EL 302 is a video-based test designed to assess the critical abilities of entry-level police officer candidates using work samples. Instructions and a countdown timer are embedded in the video to make administration easy.

The four sections of the test are:

  1. Roll Call Briefing. Candidates watch and take notes on a video of a shift briefing that includes suspect photos and background intel on recent incidents, then answer 20 questions based on information received. This section is designed to assess a candidate’s ability to observe, listen to, and remember information. (15 minutes)
  2. Training Session. Candidates watch a short training session, take notes, and then answer 15 questions. This section is designed to assess a candidate’s ability to listen to, learn, and remember information. (15 minutes)
  3. Situational Judgment Scenarios. In this section, 40 questions are presented to candidates through a series of video vignettes of actual police incidents. Candidates are asked to observe and decide what action they would take. This section is designed to assess a candidate’s ability to reason and solve problems. (1 hour, 50 minutes)
  4. Multiple-Choice Questions. The last 25 test items are standard, multiple-choice questions that test candidates’ reading comprehension skills and their ability to learn and problem solve. (40 minutes)
