Assess entry-level candidates’ levels of maturity and motivation, and their decision-making, communication and interpersonal skills in a face-to-face setting with the Police 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.
>> The POSIS system is designed to minimize adverse impact. Several administrations of POSIS outlined in the technical report showed no adverse impact on minority group candidates.
There are two versions of POSIS available: Form A and Form B.
Both forms assess the same KSAPs, and each contains seven oral interview questions, four of which are unique to the version. You may find the questions in one form more applicable to your jurisdiction than the other, or you may find both forms apply and opt to alternate forms from year to year: the choice is yours! A description of each form is included in the free POSIS inspection copy, which you can order by email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org (or) 1-800-381-TEST (8378).
