The College of Policing has developed an online assessment process for police recruits, which is enabling forces to continue recruiting during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The evaluation aims to:
identify iterative enhancements to the online process itself
draw out learning in relation to incorporating online technology into the assessment process in the longer term.
The evaluation involves:
an inter-rater reliability study of assessor scoring
survey feedback from assessors and candidates on their experiences
interviews with senior stakeholders and regional and force recruitment leads
The evaluation will report to the Police Uplift Programme Board in October 2020
