Development of Assessments for Special Agent Promotion

Categorized Under: Research + Evaluation


ICF developed and validated assessments for Special Agent Merit Promotion Process to ensure that a DHS agency can effectively address its mission.

The new process was designed to reflect Special Agent competencies and to measure these competencies in a reliable, valid, and fair manner, meeting professional and legal standards of testing and selection. ICF developed and validated three assessments for the new process—an accomplishment record, a supervisor evaluation, and a multiple-choice in-basket assessment. We also documented the development and the validation of these assessment instruments.
