National Basic Abilities Test™ - NBAT™
The I/O Solutions National Basic Abilities TestTM (NBATTM) was developed to assess minimum cognitive competencies for individuals wishing to pursue employment as law enforcement or correctional officers. Different versions of the NBATTM were developed for law enforcement and correctional officer selection based on the unique requirements and specifications of the positions.
The NBATTM examinations were developed using content-oriented and criterion-related validation strategies to meet the federal and professional guidelines for test development. The bases for this work were the several job-task analyses conducted throughout the nation, which provided a current and valid list of essential job tasks performed by incumbent officers in these disciplines. Using this information, I/O Solutions was able to create test questions and scenarios that are highly representative of the actual job content of law enforcement and correctional officers.
