Reading Comprehension*

(at the 9th & 11th grade levels)


(Knowledge, Application, & Problem Solving)
* Reading Comprehension only offering in Paramedic Entrance Exams

Affective Test

Our EMT Entrance Exams utilize an adapted form of the General Scale of Self-Efficacy, a valid and reliable psychometric scale that assesses ability to deal with new obstacles or setbacks. It also asesses ability to respond to novel or difficult situations.

Alternatively, our Paramedic 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:


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


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


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