2024 CPD Sergeant (Part 2) Written Assessment Exam Review


Part 2 will be a written Work Sample Assessment. The work samples will include items that CPD sergeants might have to deal with in a work day. Some items will be things that CPD sergeants deal with frequently. Others will include items where it is of critical importance for a CPD sergeant to handle (critical incidents). Per I/O Solutions, a typical written assessment contains situational judgment style items, and open-ended questions that require a written response. The response formats may include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank responses, and short written narrative responses. The assessment intends to measure the application of knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for performance in the rank in question.


You should know we are very, very familiar with this type of testing! We will begin with an overview of what the part 2 assessment test is all about. We will specifically review which areas the testmaker I/O Solutions likes to test. After candidates learn what it is, we will teach a strategy for each part 2 section. The strategy has worked very effectively for our students throughout the United States. Finally, we will practice with in-class assessment test items and score them in class. High probable assessment test areas will be reviewed in every class!
