Development of the Probation Officer Examination The Probation Officer Examination was developed as a result of a three-year statewide analysis of the PO position. The analysis was undertaken pursuant to state legislation mandating the development of selection standards for the PO job. Examination development began with a review of job descriptions and related documentation, site visits, and interviews with PO incumbents and their supervisors. The test researchers developed a job analysis questionnaire from these documents and interviews. The questionnaire was administered to PO incumbents and supervisors from agencies throughout California. Questionnaire results were used to determine the nature of the PO job and to develop a clear and complete description of the abilities and attributes necessary for successful job performance. A large pool of test items was developed to measure important abilities and attributes identified in the job analysis as important to job success. These test items were administered to a large sample of Probation Officers working around the state. Statistical item analyses were conducted to select test items and cast test forms that exhibited sound measurement properties. Supervisors of these same officers rated various aspects each officer s job performance. The Probation Officer Examination represents a combination of tests found to predict job performance.
5 Page 4 A Word About Terms: Test items are also called test problems and questions. There are two ways to present test items to test takers: Items can be written as questions (e.g. How many dimes are there in a dollar? ) followed by several answer choices; or as statements (e.g., Indicate to what extent you agree with the following statement using the accompanying scale: California is a great place to live. ) This information booklet contains references to test items, questions, and problems. Examination Format The Probation Officer Examination consists of multiple-choice problems in a single test booklet and an accompanying answer sheet. You will answer all examination problems on the answer sheet - DO NOT MARK IN THE TEST BOOKLET ITSELF. Typically, testing will be done in a group setting. You will have adequate time to complete all test items. Total testing time will be approximately 2 hours. Preparing for the Probation Officer Examination A brief description of the abilities and attributes measured in each section of the examination is given on the next page, followed by examples of the types of items you will find in each section. The Probation Officer Examination contains the following sections: 1. Following Written Directions Apply a set of rules to determine the correct action or solution for a problem. 2. Problem Solving: Evaluate a set of facts and draw logical conclusions. Following the fact set, a set of conclusions is presented, each of which is to be evaluated and concluded to be true, false, or indeterminable based solely upon the corresponding set of facts. 3. Reading Comprehension - Read a passage and answer questions that may require identifying facts and details, interpreting information, or drawing conclusions. 4. Writing Clarity - Recognize and use clear writing, avoiding writing problems that result in ambiguous or erroneous communication. 5. Writing Detail - Evaluate written information and determine whether it provides a useful, detailed description of people or events. 6. Accuracy with Forms and Coded Information - Part A: Check the accuracy of information coded in report forms compared to a written summary; and Part B: Compare coded information to a brief list of information and determine whether the coded information matches any of the items on the list.
6 Page 5 7. Work Attitudes - This section of the examination contains various test items designed to measure attitudes about work-related situations and behavior, reflecting attributes such as conscientiousness, confidence, handling work pressure, getting along with others, and integrity/trustworthiness. Please note: This section of the test should not be confused with a psychological examination that gauges the extent of your mental health. The Probation Officer Examination is not a measure of your mental well-being and should not be construed as such. The instructions and sample questions that appear in the examination for each section are presented on the following pages.
7 Page 6 1. Following Written Directions Directions: In this section, several sets of rules and procedures are presented. Each set is followed by several short problems that are to be solved by applying the rules. For each problem, mark the letter (A, B, C, or D) on your answer sheet corresponding to the correct action or solution. An example is provided below. Sample Item: Rules for Assigning Cases to Facilities: The four facilities are: (A) Main, (B) West, (C) North, and (D) East. Listed below are the rules for assigning cases to facilities: Main facility is for adult males who require maximum security. West facility is for adult males who require minimum security. North facility is for juveniles (ages 18 and under). East facility is for adult females of all security levels. Problem Main West North East S1. Adult male, minimum security A B C D S2. 14-year-old youth A B C D In the first example (S1), option B (West) is marked as the correct answer. For the second example (S2), you would mark option C. This section will contain 3 sets of rules and procedures with a total of 22 problems to be solved. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 15 minutes. Sample Answer Sheet S1. S2.
8 Page 7 2. Problem Solving Directions: In this section, a set of facts is presented followed by a set of conclusions. From the facts, you can tell that some of the conclusions are definitely true and some are definitely false. If you decide a conclusion is definitely TRUE, mark A on your answer sheet. If it is definitely FALSE, mark B on your answer sheet. If the facts do not give enough information to tell whether a conclusion is definitely true or definitely false, mark C on your answer sheet. An example is provided below. Sample Item: Facts: Mr. Jackson works for Facility A. Ms. Gaynor is a part-time employee. All Facility A employees work full-time. Facility B has some part time employees. Conclusions: True False Uncertain S1. Ms. Gaynor works for Facility A. A B C S2. Ms. Gaynor works for Facility B. A B C S3. Mr. Jackson works full time. A B C The first conclusion has been marked B (False) because Ms. Gaynor works part time and all Facility A employees work full time. The second conclusion has been marked C (uncertain) because there is no information given in the facts to know definitely where Ms. Gaynor works. Because Ms. Gaynor works part-time, it is possible that she works for Facility B. It is also possible that she works for another facility. The third conclusion has been marked A (true) because Mr. Jackson works for Facility A and all Facility A employees work full-time. Sample Answer Sheet S1. S2. This section will contain 3 sets of facts with a total of 12 problems to be solved. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 10 minutes.
9 Page 8 3. Reading Comprehension Directions: In this section, several passages are presented. Each passage is followed by several questions. Select the best answer to each question based on the information in the passage, marking the circle (A, B, C, or D) on your answer sheet. An example is provided below. Sample Item: First aid is to be given in order of priority. Problems with breathing, circulation, and bleeding are the highest priority. Injuries to the neck and spine should be identified and treated before injuries to the extremities. For example, in treating fractures, injuries to the neck and spine are always treated first; then the head and rib cage; and finally, the arms and legs. Open chest wounds, open abdominal wounds, shock, and serious burns should all be cared for before fractures are treated. S1. According to the passage, which of the following injuries should receive the lowest priority for treatment? A. An airway blockage. B. Heavy bleeding from a cut on the arm. C. Broken ribs. D. A broken ankle. Sample Answer Sheet S1. For this example, the correct answer is D because, according to the passage, fractures are lower priority than breathing problems or bleeding, and fractures in the extremities are the lowest priority. This section will contain three passages with a total of 17 questions. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 15 minutes.
10 Page 9 4. Writing Clarity Directions: Look at the sample item below. A sentence is presented with some of the words underlined. Four alternative words or phrases are listed to replace the underlined words. Select the word or phrase from the list that results in the most clearly written sentence. Mark your answer (A, B, C, or D) on the answer sheet. Sample Item: S1. If, in the event that the weapon is found, it should be analyzed. A. If, in the event that B. If C. Now D. Since if Sample Answer Sheet S1. The correct answer is option B because it provides the most clearly stated sentence, so B is marked on the sample answer sheet. This section will contain a total of 13 questions. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 10 minutes.
11 Page Writing Detail Directions: In this section, pairs of statements are presented which describe the same event or procedure. For each pair of sentences, determine which one provides the most useful, detailed information in describing the event or procedure. Mark your answer (A or B) on the answer sheet. An example is provided below. Sample Item: A. A customer at the ATM machine on 12 th and Euclid was robbed at gunpoint today by a masked man. In addition to being robbed of $250, Julie Montrose, 20, was beaten with a gun. She is in fair condition. B. A young woman was robbed at 8:00 this morning at the new ATM station on Euclid Avenue. Her face was badly bruised and she received a concussion as a result of the beating she received by the gunman. The correct answer is option A because it provides more useful and detailed information about the incident, such as the location, the people involved, and what happened. You would mark A on your answer sheet for this problem. Sample Answer Sheet S1. This section will contain a total of 16 questions. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 10 minutes.
12 Page Accuracy with Forms and Coded Information Part A - Directions: Look at the sample item below. A short paragraph is presented followed by a corresponding report form. Parts of the report form are numbered that are to be checked for accuracy. For each numbered part, mark A on your answer sheet if the form is correctly filled in, or mark B if the form is not correctly filled in. Sample Item: On March 14 th a check of the 635 cases for the week showed that all cases were processed on time. Of these cases, 86 were pre-trial cases. Of the 86 pre-trial cases, 79 were transported to Superior court, and 7 were transported to the medical facility. For the first sample item (S1), option A is marked because the date was filled in correctly. For the second sample item (S2), option B is marked because the number of cases processed for the week was NOT filled in correctly. For the third sample item (S3), you would mark B because all cases were processed on time. Sample Answer Sheet S1. S2. S3. You do not have to check every line on the form. Check only those items that have circled numbers next to them. This section will contain 2 sets of passages and report forms with a total of 10 items to be checked. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 5 minutes.
13 Page Accuracy with Forms and Coded Information (continued) Part B - Directions: Look at the sample items below. In the first sample (S1), you will see a code number presented, 792. Compare that code number to the four code numbers in the same row and see if any of the numbers match 792. If you see an option in the row that matches, mark the letter (A, B, C, or D) of that option on your answer sheet. If no match is found, mark E on your answer sheet. Sample Items: Code Number S No Match S No Match S3. 117! 117! !71!171 No Match Sample Answer Sheet S1. S2. S3. The match for S1 is option B, so you would mark B on your answer sheet. There is no match for S2, so you would mark E on your answer sheet. The match for S3 is option A, so you would mark A on your answer sheet. This section will contain 11 codes to be checked for matches. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 3 minutes.
14 Page Work Attitude Survey Directions: This section contains a variety of multiple-choice test items. Read each statement carefully and decide the extent to which you agree with the statement. Respond to each item truthfully. Some of the items may describe things that you have never experienced. In this situation, or if you are uncertain about a response, choose the one that most closely describes you or your views. Do not spend too much time on any one item; respond to each item as best as you can and move on to the next one. Sample Items: For each item below, you should mark the letter A to E on the answer sheet corresponding to your choice of response. S1. In a crisis situation, you are willing to lead others. A. Strongly Disagree B. Disagree C. In Between D. Agree E. Strongly Agree S2. You enjoy working with people who are different from you. A. Strongly Disagree B. Disagree C. In Between D. Agree E.

It is hard for you to remain even-tempered when others are being rude or obnoxious. A. Strongly Disagree B. Disagree C. In Between D. Agree E. Strongly Agree This section will contain 125 questions. Most candidates finish this section of the test within about 30 minutes.
15 Page 14 Your Score The Probation Officer Examination uses a compensatory scoring process. This means that good performance on one section of the examination may offset relatively poor performance on another portion of the test. The individual sections of the test are not scored separately. Because of this, a breakdown of how you perform on each section will not be available. You do not pass or fail individual sections of the examination. What counts is your total score -- you pass or fail the entire test only. A Final Word About Testing Below are several suggestions about taking the Probation Officer Examination. If you thoroughly review the information in this booklet and follow the suggestions, you will be at your best when you take the examination. In general, you should work quickly, but not so fast as to become careless. The time limit has been set to allow you plenty of time. If you have a question during testing, raise your hand and a proctor will assist you. Always read all possible choices before marking your answer. If you don't know the answer to a problem it is usually best to skip it and go on to the others. If you finish before time is called, you can go back to any problems you may have skipped. If you are not sure of the answer to a problem, eliminate the answers you know are wrong and then mark the choice that is your best guess. You will not be penalized for guessing. Your score is simply the number of problems you answer correctly so you should not leave any problems unanswered even if you are only guessing. You should get a good night's sleep the night before the examination. Some people find that eating a snack or light meal an hour or two before testing is good preparation.
