[IPAC-List] Does anyone know of a good test of the Uniform Guidelines?

Opinionated, but clever!
I don't know of any such test.  
But why does the client want something specifically on the Guidelines (including the Q&As?)?  If Mike's suggestion to write a test were taken up, the type of question would follow the purpose of the assessment.  Mike seems to have one purpose in mind.  There are probably others.

A Uniform Guidelines test shouldn't be hard to write.  We could offer items on this listserv for use by Jim's client. Here are two possible items:

Situational ________ is an unsupported scientific theory that is incorporated into the Uniform Guidelines and, despite assertions in the Uniform Guidelines that the guidelines are consistent with scientific knowledge, still remains in the Uniform Guidelines to the detriment of United States employers.
A.  embarrassment
B.  ethics
C.  specificity
D.  irony
E.  awareness

The Uniform Guidelines are best viewed as a:
A. political weapon to harass employers to get their numbers right
B. mechanism to damage merit hiring
C. set of guidelines that are inconsistent with scientific knowledge
D. all of the above

I look forward to seeing additional items.
