Subject: RE: [IPAC-List] Confidentiality Agreements

The State of Wisconsin uses a Job Expert Certificate to document participants (employees or not) involved in some stage of the development/testing process.  It includes a statement at the bottom near the participant's signature regarding exam security.


I recall older, more expansive versions of the form that spelled out consequences of the statutory violation, which includes misdemeanor fine or imprisonment.

Good question!  Given the continuing problem of cheating & test security problems in Public Safety tests, I would like to broaden the discussion to include:

1.  Examples of test security agreements for outside assessors.  For example, payment of travel expenses could be contingent on following test security policy.

2.  Examples of test security agreements for internal subject matter experts who assist in test development.  For example, employees could be subject to disciplinary action.

3.  Other policies and procedures to prevent cheating & other test security problems.  For example, employees could be prohibited from conducting outside training on taking promotional exams.

Does anyone use or have an example of a confidentiality agreement you use when you bring in outside assessors for promotional processes? While we can lock down our candidates since they are employees, we are wanting to tighten up our processes, but we really don't have any teeth when it comes to raters discussing candidates after a process. Just curious.
