[IPAC-List] Pass points for employment tests and the Standards for educational and psychological testing

The Standards seem to say that pass points can be set for employment tests based solely on the number of positions to be filled (4.19 and 4.20). Based on things I have heard and read, I have the feeling that that is not how things have played out over the years.

Is it really that simple for employment tests? (Gets ready to duck.) Of course, I mean in the absence of factors that would suggest discriminatory effect or intent.

I would appreciate any thoughts you would care to share on this issue.
