NTN Tests - FrontLine National Law Enforcement Testing There are three components to the FrontLine National Testing System: a video-based human relations test, a reading ability test and a report writing test. Testing takes approximately 2.5 hours. FrontLine National Video-Based Human Relations and Judgment Test 46 Scenarios (90 Minutes) FrontLine National focuses on using good judgment in enforcement, public relations and teamwork. It was specifically designed for entry level law enforcement. Candidates watch a video segment and then choose the BEST course of action in a multiple-choice format. This test is presented on video and the items play without stopping. Candidates have 10 seconds to answer each question. Law enforcement experience is not needed to answer these questions. FrontLine National is not intended in any way to be a test of knowledge of policy or technical aspects of the job. Any such information that may be needed to answer a question is provided in the test. Candidates are not expected to know anything other than what is stated. Candidates should base answers only on information given in the test and common sense. FrontLine National Writing Test – Initial Report 1 Written Report (10 Minutes) The FrontLine National Writing Test is given in two parts. The first part involves writing a report and the second part is a multiple-choice test. For the first part, candidates will be shown a brief scenario on video and will be asked to write a factual report describing the scenario. Candidates will watch the scenario twice with time in-between viewings to take notes. Prior to viewing the test scenario, a sample situation will be shown, and an example report will guide candidates what is considered a good response. Candidates will be able to take notes and can use these notes to write the report. After watching the test scenario twice, candidates have 10 minutes for writing. FrontLine National Multiple-Choice Writing Test 15 Questions (10 Minutes) After completing the FrontLine National Video Test, candidates will be asked to answer language ability multiple-choice questions (multiple-choice writing test and multiple-choice reading test). For the multiple-choice writing test, candidates answer questions on straightforward information that law enforcement officers would need to include in their actual reports. For the multiple-choice test, candidates use the initial report written in the first part of the Writing Test to answer the test questions. FrontLine National Multiple-Choice Reading Test 30 Questions (15 Minutes) After completing the FrontLine National Video Test, candidates will be asked to answer language ability multiple-choice questions (multiple-choice writing test and multiple-choice reading test). The multiple-choice reading test is designed specifically for law enforcement officers, a job requiring ongoing study of difficult and technical materials. This test is based on actual job materials. Candidates will be required to choose a word that best fits in the blank.
