Employee Evaluation Program for Public Safety Communications Positions
The Employee Evaluation Program for Public Safety Communications Positions is a comprehensive selection PROGRAM for call-taker, dispatcher AND communications supervisor personnel.
The EEP-Communications is not a knowledge-based selection program; it does not measure or assess the candidate’s technical knowledge or expertise. What it does assess is the candidate’s compatibility with the personal characteristic requirements of the position – the inherent skills and abilities identified through job analysis that contribute to success in the position.
The EEP-Communications blends testing and interviewing together in an easy-to-understand and viable format.
The EEP –Communications includes…
Job-related, valid personal characteristics (soft skills) testing...
Personality/Position Compatibility Test. The personality/position compatibility test used in the EEP Test Battery is one of the shortest yet most technologically advanced personality profiling systems currently in use. The test is computer scored via the internet allowing three different narrative reports to be generated for each candidate – a 9-page Manager’s Report – a 10-page Individual’s Self-Report and a 1-page Public Safety Job Factor Compatibility Profile Report. Each report is designed to meet the specific needs of the interviewer, trainer and supervisor/manager.
“Distraction” Test. The “Distraction” test measures the candidate’s ability to do more than one thing at a time and remain focused under stress (i.e., multi-tasking). The test is quickly administered and easily scored. Most test takers report they enjoy taking the test; for them the test is both entertaining and challenging.
Mental Ability Test. The mental ability test included in the EEP Test Battery is an established test of general intelligence used for selection and placement of business personnel. The test measures the candidate’s ability to learn, ability to understand instructions and ability to adapt and solve problems on the job.

The EEP Test Battery may be administered individually or to groups of candidates. The entire testing process takes about one hour to complete.
Is a valid predictor of future job performance.
Criterion-based validation studies for the EEP test battery demonstrate that the EEP has predictive validity for public safety communications positions. The validity coefficient for the EEP test battery is .45. A validity coefficient is a calculation used in validation studies to indicate the relative predictability of the method. This coefficient is then used as proof of the usefulness of a certain hiring technique. In this type of research, a validity coefficient above .20 is considered acceptable; validity coefficients of .30 and above are considered very good.
Assists in training and development.
The computerized scoring of the personality instrument allows you to print narrative “Profile” Reports on the primary personality characteristics of your candidates, allowing training and management to be geared to meet the unique needs and motivators of the employee.
