What types of tests do you administer?
There are three basic types of civil service tests:
1. Written- Multiple choice tests in which you choose the best answer from several choices and mark your choice on an answer sheet.

2. Performance - Measures ability to perform a particular task in a specified time period. Examples are typing, stenography, or physical agility.

3. Rating of Experience and Training- Candidates are assigned a score based on the information you report on your application and any required application supplement.

Any of these types of tests can be used alone, or a combination of these may be utilized.
