CPCA Entry Level Police Exam Validation Process

The entry level police exam used by CPCA was constructed by using a job task analysis.  Connecticut Chiefs of Police were surveyed to determine the knowledge, skills, abilities, and personal traits requisite for an entry level police officer.  The results were then computerized in a range of 5 (critical) down to 4 (not important).  A national literary search was then done for correlation purposes.  The Connecticut Police Academy curriculum was reviewed, and based on these facts the entry level test was created.
