Scoring: The test results are available
to local agencies as a global score for the entire
test. Based on the research conducted to develop
the written selection exams, the Board of Corrections
provides a recommended range of passing score
points for use by local corrections agencies.
The final determination of the pass point is made
by the local agency.
Medical Screening Guidelines: The Corrections Standards Authority has developed guidelines for use
by examining physicians in their assessment of
physical fitness of candidates for each of the
three entry-level positions. The purpose of the
medical screening is to identify candidates on
a case-by-case basis who may have physical conditions
that contraindicate their ability to safely perform
specific activities on the job. The Board of Corrections
recommends that the job requirements checklist
provided in each guideline be tailored to reflect
those physical skills being used in the particular
local agency. Please hyperlink below to select
the screening guideline of your choosing.
Vision and Hearing Guidelines: The vision
and hearing guidelines developed by the Corrections Standards Authority are not empirically determined
vision or hearing standards. That is, they do
not represent criteria below which all, or substantially
all, persons will be unable to perform the job.
They do represent the combined judgment of many
professionals as to the visual and auditory abilities
required by the demands of each of the entry-level
positions. Please hyperlink below to select the
