lieutenantOnline Interview and In-Basket Assessments and FREE and BONUS Items Included with Your Police Promotion Course

With your career membership you can take the LEPTAD 100+ Question Oral Board Structured Interview Assessment, including a separate, detailed analysis of your responses we will send you you after you complete the assessment.

The LEPTAD is our exclusive Law Enforcement Promotional Testing Assessment Device for you to evaluate and receive expert advice on your answers on oral boards and other assessments.

The LEPTAD is copyrighted and available from us and no other source. We have used it thousands of times to assist police promotional candidates in passing their structured, oral and panel interviews.

With the LEPTAD Oral Board and Interview Assessment, you will learn OVER 100 examples of the most difficult questions you will face in your promotional Structured, Panel or Oral Interviews and Assessments - and how you are expected to answer!

You will find out EXACTLY what law enforcement managers and police assessment centers want to KNOW ABOUT YOU BEFORE THEY DECIDE TO PROMOTE (or NOT PROMOTE) YOU!

The LEPTAD contains OVER 100 closely-guarded opinion, scenario and judgment questions in the following 8 categories:

• Dedication to the Law Enforcement Agency and Profession
• Desire for Responsibility and Leadership
• Law Enforcement Ethics and Accountability
• Supervisory Judgment Under Stress
• Ability to Accept Responsibility for the Actions of Self and Subordinates
• Knowledge of Current Professional Trends and Topics
• Responsibility to Society and Community
• "Defense" of Subordinates and the Department Management.

captainYou can also take our example online In-Basket Assessment - a timed, 90 minute, difficult, 12+ item promotional in-basket originally designed for a Lieutenant/Captain promotion process. Regardless of rank you are testing for, this practice in-basket will identify your problem analysis, organizational ability, decisiveness, initiative, judgment and your other supervisory and management knowledge and skills. You can use this in-basket exercise to practice with as often as you like.

Think in-basket assessments are EASY? They're NOT, and you'll see why.

You don't just read a few phone messages and emails and jot down a few notes.

An in-basket assessment you will undergo for a police promotion contains pages and pages of background material and takes a great deal of concentration and organizational ability, and the ability to work quickly under pressure.

You must also study pages of material such as background narrative, complicated work scenarios, schedules, calendars and organizational charts, and you must take accurate and detailed notes.

Then you are presented with a detailed scenario along with 10 to 20 in-basket items, all the while a clock is ticking down the time.

Here are some of the dimensions you are graded on in an in-basket assessment center exercise;

> Comprehension ability
> Written communication ability
> Verbal communication ability
> Planning and organization
> Problem analysis
> Ability to take risks
> Judgment
> Decisiveness
> Delegation
> Initiative

At the conclusion of the in-basket you are interviewed by the assessors. Your notes are reviewed and discussed with you, and you are judged on how quickly and thoroughly you analyze the material and scenarios, how quickly and accurately you complete the many items in the assessment, how accurate and complete your written notes are, and how well you verbalize your analysis, actions, conclusions and responses to the assessors.
Finally, your overall rating also takes into account how thorough and knowledgeable you were on your analysis and action on each item, and whether you properly delegated or handled the material.

Do you know that 1/3 - 1/2 of police promotional candidates FAIL their first in-basket assessment because they walk in, unprepared, thinking it will be EASY? They are then shocked and surprised at what they find. Don't be one of these candidates. PREPARE NOW.

• Our best-selling Assessment Center book, The Naked Truth About Assessment Centers in Police Promotional Testing - Insider secrets on what these tests are all about and how you can best prepare for them.
