    How many of you guys took the MFD test in these last week? What were your thoughts? Out of 120 Q how do you guys think you scored? Any word on how many will be hired?

    I took the test also, but from what I heard it was only going to be 2 classses and then a brand new list. Also they are going to get rid of the LPS test and do a different test system next time.

    They have a lot retiring these next years easily in the 150-200 range if not more. They will be hiring more than 2 classes off this list for sure.

    And as for the test I feel like everyone had the opportunity to do well.

    Yes, what the heck?? Usually when departments "review" a test they end up throwing it out. Hopefully they do not since I got a decent score. City of Miami is a mess!

    I hope not! I've seen this done before with other departments though. Anytime they mention "review" they end up throwing it out. I really hope they don't with this one though.

    So any thoughts as to what it could actually be holding everything up?

    I heard from a very reliable source that the test was keyed incorrectly, according to HR. Not sure what to make of it

    So how does that explain the people who are in the 90s?
    There are alot of people in the 80s and 90s. Can they explain how there are roughly 350 people with scores above 85?

    Not sure all just rumors until we get that email, does any one actually know how this test is actually graded. How much each question is worth and what not

    It was 120 questions. Multiply the amount you got wrong times 120 to get your score. I think some people feel their scores are incorrect. It's a scantron, there shouldn't be any errors. That being said, everyone should have the right to view their scantron if they feel like it.

    I can agree with that. But I doubt there is any corruption. If something like that actually happened there would be a huge class action lawsuit and the city cant afford to do that nor can they afford to throw out the test and start over.

    That being said, you shouldnt be able to hold up the entire process because u feel u did better on a test that u really failed. Explain to me how 315 people got an 85 or better. The others just didnt test well. If people passed and others failed that it was a fair test. Tests are meant to be passed by some and failed by others.

    I don't think this had to do with some people doing better than others, I don't think the city would put the hiring process on hold because a few people thought they didn't get a fair grade, and I definitely don't think corruption is anything to even think about.

    I think either the answer key could be incorrect and/or the test scores couldve been sent out incorrectly or a million other things that have nothing to do with the test scores.
