Or, use the Entrance Exam as a diagnostic tool at the beginning of your class to assess your incoming students’ strengths and weaknesses.

The Entrance Exam (EE) was created by and for EMS educators and is different from other entrance exams because it is unique to EMS and includes a personality assessment.

All Fisdap exams are:

1

  Valid

  Each of our tests go through an intensive review by EMS educators and physicians.

2

  Secure

  Proctoring the exam protects the exam security for your students and all our other Fisdap users.

3

  Reliable

  Not all tests are created equal: there are good ones and bad ones. To make ours good, we use classical test theory to make sure all of our exams are effective and fair.

The exam is comprised of two sections: a cognitive test and a personality inventory to test students’ affective domain.

Affective Test

Affective TestOur Entrance Exams utilize an adapted form of the M5-50 personality assessment, a valid and reliable personality item set designed for the evaluation of public safety personnel, to measure these important traits:

Agreeableness How well an individual gets along with others (also described as kindness, cooperativeness, or sympathy for/consideration of others).

Conscientiousness Attention to detail and understanding of right versus wrong. This element may also have utility in predicting elements of empathetic behaviors.

Neuroticism The inability to accept failures and deal with stress. Neurotic people tend to have more of a depressed mood.
