  • Can someone please help me understand interview scoring

    I suck at interviews and can never figure this out. If your test score is worth 70% of your grade and the oral is worth 30%, how do they calculate your final score if say your written is an 80%. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Most orals tend to score you on the following. Think of every possible question that could be put to you on these subjects and be prepared with a good response. Some will be situational questions (Problem Solving) and you will either have it, or you wont - there's not a lot that can prepare you for that. Having a degree over someone who does not may add a point or two to your oral score, but its not a game changer. I've seen people with GEDs far outshine people with a Masters.
    • Experience – assesses your ability and experience in accepting responsibilities and performing assigned tasks as demonstrated through achievements in work, school, and other activities.
    • Problem Solving – assesses your reasoning skills in developing timely, logical responses to a wide variety of situations and problems.
    • Communication Skills – assesses your oral communications skills, which includes speaking, listening, and non-verbal communication.
    • Interest/Motivation – addresses your interest in and preparedness for the peace officer job. It includes an assessment of your general level of interest, initiative, and goal orientation.
    • Interpersonal Skills – assesses many facets, such as social knowledge/appropriateness, social insight, empathy, social influence, social self-regulation, sociability, team orientation, social self-confidence, conflict management skills, and negotiating skills.
    • Community Involvement/Awareness – focuses specifically on your experiences and interest in community issues, as well as your interest in and ability to fill multiple roles and serve a diverse community.
    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere
