Policy, Data, Oversight Assessment & Selection

The links on the right side present other competency-based assessment methods you may want to consider when creating your assessment plan.

As each method may play an important part in the recruitment and selection process, summary information is provided for each assessment method as well as various considerations to take into account when reviewing each assessment.

Most of the assessment methods in this section require considerable test development and measurement expertise to develop in-house. Measurement specialists can assist in selecting or developing valid, fair, and effective assessment tools to meet specific hiring needs. Many vendors offer professionally-developed assessments. Each agency is responsible for ensuring assessments meet all regulatory and legal criteria. Agencies should develop and maintain the necessary documentation to support their selection processes.
