Use the Entrance Exam to help you select and admit the prospective paramedic students with the best chances of success in your paramedic program. Or, use the Entrance Exam as a diagnostic tool at the beginning of your paramedic class to assess your incoming students' strengths and weaknesses. The Entrance Exam (EE) was created by and for EMS educators and is different from other entrance exams because it is unique to EMS and includes a personality assessment. The exam is comprised of two sections: a cognitive test and a personality inventory to test students' affective domain. Cognitive Test Anatomy and Physiology Math Reading Comprehension (at the 9th and 11th grade levels) EMT (Knowledge, Application, and Problem Solving) Affective Test In collaboration with Dr. Billy James, a clinical psychologist, we adapted 30 items from the M5-50 for the personality inventory. The M5-50 is a valid and reliable personality item set designed for the evaluation of law enforcement personnel. Three areas, specifically agreeableness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism, are particularly strong indicators for identifying the ideal paramedic students.
Agreeableness: How well an individual gets along with others (also described as kindness, cooperativeness, or sympathy for/consideration of others). Conscientiousness: Attention to detail and understanding of right versus wrong. This element may also have utility in predicting elements of empathetic behaviors. Neuroticism: The inability to accept failures and deal with stress. Neurotic people tend to have more of a depressed mood. Ready to get started? Call Fisdap at 651-690-9241 for your free demo.
