    I bet most people interpet it as the test was graded by a group of white people.

    Just so you know, Merit Matters is in attendance, but it is the Exam 2000's Candidate Support Group's meetings. Meaning it is OUR meeting.

    I found this link very interesting. Maybe you guys can share your thoughts on it.

    Questions and Answers about Municipal Civil Service Examinations » Job Seekers » Department of Civil Service

    Btw, according to someone in the recruitment center, their trying to put out our scores by August or sometime in September. So, keep checking your mail During those months. Keep training, keep sharp and stay positive everyone, Goodluck.

    After reading the first paragraph of that page I had to stop and chuckle because I added my own caveat at the end:

    "In New York State, competitive civil service examinations provide a way to ensure that appointments to municipal public service jobs are based on merit and fitness. Those people who are interested in public service employment must demonstrate that they have the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to do a particular job by taking a civil service examination." EXCEPT WHEN THE USDOJ IS INVOLVED.

    I was leaning more toward the way these exams are graded by using some type of band scoring system. Now personally it would make sense as far as the personality questions we had on the exam goes. I don't think they are going to go by a point by point system on this. I also remember the Convo I had with the recruitment center and I was told that this state is one of the last states to adapt this form of testing. So, as I looked around and noticed that almost every other state uses the band scoring system. In a way that's a good thing, especially for those who have a lot of partial credit on the personality section of the exam. Just my opinion, but I believe the band scoring system is the way to go on those types of questions.

    The band scoring system is in place in certain parts of the state due to the very same issues the FDNY and DCAS has faced on this test, that those who are in the minority are not hired due to some sort of "conspiracy" that forces them out of the job.

    I know it gives you hope Skav, but the reality is that we want the "best" people for the job while politicans, lawyers, and others just want a position to return to, a case to win, a legacy to be written without giving a speckle to the interest of the "greater good".

    But, I do want to wish our veterans who have gone before us, both home and abroad, service members and public safety employees, a Happy Memorial Day!

    How does band scoring work ? Would like grades 95-100 essentially all be the same score and then they have some sought of tie breaker like our social security number ?

    So the same stuff that happened in Chicago a year or 2 ago is going to happen here?

    How can they grant seniority to them if they get hired right now as opposed to the firefighters who have been on the job for 10 years?

    This can't be real. lol

    but in all honesty...If they get "consideration for employment" they still need to go through the process, as well as file the paperwork and file it properly and follow through with it. (which in all honesty..how many do you really think will?) just saying..

    It's aggravating but if you think logical and realistically it isn't that bad.

    Can you imagine what the other firemen that have been otj and busting their asses for the last 10 yrs. are going to think of someone who walks in and on day one would have seniority over them and be at top pay! WTF! Did my review, 0 wrong in first part, 8pc on last part, no extra credits. Do I still have a shot? Is the dream still alive?
