Entry-Level Testing Services

Identifying the most qualified individuals in today’s hiring climate can be complicated and frustrating. Our partners at Stanard & Associates have the tools to assist in simplifying the process of selecting the best of your applicants.

To better serve you, and to streamline the process for ordering tests from Stanard and Associates, our MOPCA official Public Safety Testing Partner, we have made some minor changes. These changes will be effective March 1, 2023.  If your Human Resources or someone else orders your tests, please forward this information to them.  Our order forms are new and are emailed directly to Stanard & Associates.  You can now download the forms directly from our website. Stanard and Associates will also invoice you directly. These testing supplies are ordered through Stanard and Associates, Inc.

If you have questions about these changes or about the partnership between Stanard & Associates and the MOPCA, please contact sales@stanard.com or (800) 367-6919.

The National Police Officer Selection Test (POST)

The National Police Officer Selection Test (POST) is an entry-level basic skills test that helps law enforcement agencies select the most qualified applicants by ensuring that candidates possess the basic cognitive skills necessary to successfully perform the job. The POST is a valid, job-related test designed specifically for law enforcement use, which measures these basic skills: Arithmetic, Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Incident Report Writing. Increase your department’s hiring efficiency by using the POST to ensure candidates possess the fundamental skills to succeed in training and on the job.  For agencies interested in the online remote testing option, please contact Stanard & Associates, Inc. at sales@stanard.com to request additional information.

The National Dispatcher Selection Test (NDST)

As the first point of contact in an emergency, dispatchers play a critical role in keeping the public safe, as well as responding law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel. Selecting the best person for such a demanding position requires more than an interview and background check. Stanard & Associates’ National Dispatcher Selection Test (NDST) gives call centers the ability to objectively assess a candidate’s skill level in five important areas: Reading Comprehension, Listening, Problem Solving, Prioritizing, and Multi-Tasking. And in keeping with Stanard & Associates’ commitment to rigorous standards in test development, the NDST is backed by an extensive research and development effort involving input from hundreds of incumbent dispatchers across the country.
