Summary
This study was undertaken to develop and validate reading and writing tests to be used for the selection of entry-level law enforcement officers in California. In effect, this study was comprised of two research projects: one resulting in a reading test and one resulting in a writing test. The tests were validated using both the content and criterion-related strategies of validation. The tests were content validated using job skills as the criteria and empirically validated using academy academic performance as the criteria. POST feels the language ability tests are appropriate for use as entry-level selection procedures for all law eforcement agencies in the state of California
