Good idea cshea lets combine all of our info into one place and try to understand this as best as possible.
PIRL - Post Interview Ranking List.
RMSI - Regular Member Selection Interview.
RPAT - RCMP Police Aptitude Test.
RPAB - RCMP Police Aptitude Battery.
SFPQ - Six Factor Personality Questionnaire.
RPAB - This is the test you write at the beginning of the process. It now has two parts:
1. RPAT - Same old RPAT. It tests Composition, Comprehension, Memory, Judgment, Observation, Logic and Computation. Passing grade is 3.2 out of 5.
2. SFPQ - According to the RCMP website "The SFPQ has 108 statements where you are asked to agree or disagree. The questionnaire measures an applicants' conscientiousness"
RMSI - This is the interview which is scored out of 40. You are placed on the PIRL after you complete the interview.
PIRL - The actual list in which candidates are ranked.
PIRL score - This is the score that determines your place on the PIRL. Applicants are given a PIRL score out of 100. The score is determined based on your RPAB and RMSI.
WHAT DO WE THINK WE KNOW?
- After you write the RPAB and take the RMSI you're given a PIRL score and placed on the PIRL.
- Your PIRL score determines your place on the PIRL(actual list)
- When the RCMP goes to fill seats at DEPOT they pull out the applicants who are highest on the PIRL.
- No one knows what a competitive score is or what the averages of those selected are because applicants with different PIRL scores are continually added and taken off the PIRL.
- Those of us who have not written the RPAB will keep our scores for one year. Next year(Nov. 1) we'll have to write the RPAB and then be given a new PIRL score.
- We are stuck with our current PIRL scores for one year. If we want to improve it right now we'll have to write the RPAB and redo the RMSI all over again.(Just wait with your current PIRL score, we'll have a chance to improve it in one year and stay on the PIRL).
- Once you're on the PIRL with a RPAB score you can rewrite the RPAB to improve your score once a year.
- When you are selected from the PIRL you will continue the process from where you left off. You may have to redo some things but once your selected you're moving and shouldn't stop.(As far as I understand)
- The PIRL is regional.
- It seems not every region has implemented the PIRL.
WHAT KIND OF SCORES ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
I'm going to provide a list of known PIRL scores. I'll just list the scores, not who is associated with them. If you want to PM me your PIRL score I'll add it to the list and won't mention your name. Hopefully with this we'll be able to determine amongst ourselves what kind of scores we're looking at.
I'll list them in descending order for ease of use.
(With our huge sample size 70ish looks to be average. lol.)
WHAT DO WE WANT TO KNOW?
Here I'll list questions that we want to know and hopefully you guys can ask your respective FCs and get some answers. I'll add the answers to the post when they come in.
1. Does each region have separate PIRL score? or is the PIRL national? - Answered (thanks noonelson) The PIRL is regional.
2. Which regions have/have not implemented the PIRL?
