"The new test brings together an unprecedented level of exam research and technology to successfully meet the challenges faced by the City of New York."
John Weiner, PSI Chief Science Officer
Dependable Delivery Under the Scrutiny of the City of New YorkBreakthrough Technologies extended PSI’s existing test driver, incorporating new content such as multimedia formats, innovative item types, video hot spots, and other materials to assess the creative thinking of adult applicants. The result: a stable, proctored, and secure high-stakes assessment.
Diversity has been a top priority for the FDNY over the last decade, and a user-friendly and advanced platform was just what was required. PSI and Breakthrough Technologies worked together to create a seamless blend of testing material and system that’s simple, secure, and above all, fair for a diverse population of adult test-takers. If that weren’t enough of a perk: modern delivery meant no more paper and pencil.
“We have hired more than 1,400 outstanding firefighters who performed well on the exam, and will continue to use the civil-service list from that test.” – FDNY spokesman Frank Gribbon
