Protective Services
Report Plus
The PSR Plus report helps you
quickly identify candidates to move
forward in the selection process by
providing a unique combination of
information:

factors that derail individuals
in public safety and security
positions
2. An in-depth normal personality
assessment
3. Predictions of a candidate’s work
style based upon his/her:
• Emotional Adjustment

Based on comprehensive research
with police, corrections, and military
personnel, making the PSR Plus
job-relevant for protective services
positions.
Examines how the individual’s
Emotional Adjustment, Integrity/
Control, Intellectual Efficiency, and
Interpersonal Relations influence job
performance in areas such as safety,
use of force, communication, stress
tolerance, and teamwork.
Fewer test items (325) than most
conditional-offer personality
assessments.
Can be administered and scored
locally, without an Internet
connection.
This post-offer selection tool delivers a complete picture of the
candidate, combining information about his/her mental and emotional
functioning along with a detailed normal personality profile.
A Multi-Dimensional Look at Personality
The PSR Plus is generated from the PsychEval Personality Questionnaire
which is a combination of our widely-respected normal personality
assessment, the 16PF® Questionnaire, and 140 clinical items. The report
includes the same in-depth normal personality information as the 16PF
Protective Services Report (PSR) that is used in pre-offer screening and
also includes narrative insights into the individual’s thought patterns,
beliefs, and behaviors. The report also provides guidance on how the elevated clinical scales
may affect a candidate’s job performance and thus warrant further
evaluation. This information is supplemented by a score profile of
the twelve clinical scales, plus a QuickEval Index and three composite
indices that signal whether further exploration may be needed in the
areas of depression, distorted thoughts, and risk-taking.
