Clients of our Promotion Testing Course can also take our example 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





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.

You will ALSO receive - FREE - these best-selling books and bonus items ready for immediate download:

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.

AND our best-selling book Police (Combat) Résumé Writing Techniques and Sample Promotional and Police Chief Résumés.

YOU WILL ALSO practice your interview responses in your home or car, because also included as a BONUS is a FULL HOUR of Audio Interview Files containing 50 of the Toughest Law Enforcement Scenario, Stress, Background, No-Win and Ethical Dilemma interview questions you are likely to face in your Promotional Interview or Assessment Center!
