Official Grades


They are in the mail my friend got his yesterday. Rumors and ideas are out and my opinion is this list will go the full 4 years and end there. What number really depends on retirements and hiring but I think my opinion list will get close to the end. My guess 2300 or 75 grade wise. A large amount are predicted to leave over the course of the next 14 months due to last contract increase being in March.

Such nonsense being spewed. He picked up 4 points off throw outs and then had seniority points, medals added in. Why is it so hard to understand?

 Your partner either counted wrong or isn't telling you truth. The passing grade was lowered to 61. I know that for a FACT.

 I would love to believe you but we went the same day.  I sat 3 seats over from him in Manhattan. He got a 65. He didn't lie i was there.  Not trying to turn this into a back and forth.  You have your beliefs about the curve.  Maybe you are right maybe wrong but if you are right the passing grade was not 60.

I really believe that we had a lot of throw outs.  Anywhere between 7 and 12 total.  What sucks is if you get a question right that ultimately becomes a throw out it doesn't matter for you.

Yeah, no need to argue. But the passing grade was lowered. The test was curved and the list size increase was intentional. After the tvb and all of our throwouts the list was still under 1400. That is a FACT. There were some throwouts but not as much as you think. It's not what I believe. It's what I KNOW. It is a FACT. Confirmed by Rookiescum and JD and other people on this board who are in the know, so you don't have to take my word for it. And like you said, you were a few seats away from your friend. Maybe you guys miscounted. Cause if DCAS actually let you stand behind his screen and count, that's a whole other problem. Lol. He probably just counted wrong.

 Definitely didn't stand behind his seat and count lol.  At the end of the day i could care less off this test was curved,  lowered or whatever.  We are on the list and that's all that matters and i really do believe this entire list is getting made.

 Cheers to that brother! I have it on good authority that the naysayers and doubters of this list going the distance will be wrong... again.. lol. And I also had a friend who told me he got in the 60s and after I didn't see them on the list and pressed the issue they admitted that after they counted 31 red wrong answers they stopped counting and guestimated later. It happens.

 61 was the proverbial line in the sand.  That's not to say someone couldn't have gotten a 59 and picked up a few throw outs from the TVB to get them over the hump.

 Once the LT and Cpt lists get established, plus the coming retirments, NCO expansion, and insane amount of supervisor body camera responsibities, the need for sgts will pick up as will the size and rate of classes.

I know of 2 guys who said they got a 68 at the protest session but still failed because they didnt pick up any points. Thats what makes me think it wasnt curved.

 I'll find you 4 more who said they got a 69 and failed. People get embarrased and say they failed by a few points. It happens every test. If I had a dollar for everytime someone claimed they got 69 or 68 when they failed. 61 was the passing Blast.  I mean come on.  Even if there wasn't a curve, which there was, and lets say that they got a 68 and failed while people are passing with a 60 or 61 then either they have the worst luck in the world or did what my friend did and count 31 wrong during the protest and felt so defeated that they didn't even bother to count the rest.

So how do you know it was curved "for a fact". You do know the difference between fact and heresy, right? I hope you guys are trolling because it's hard to imagine you are that obtuse.

 Fact is. If there wasnt any curve the scores wouldnt be in between before your longevity and medals, jst and stuff. This case scores were in between even before getting those Extra points. It aint that different to figure it out

 I wasn't even going to entertain you because you my friend are clown and cleeeeaarrrlly have no clue how things work.  I can't tell if you're trying to troll me or are just a dunce.  You talk so much nonsense while trying to sound smarter than you actually are that you're actually starting to remind me of someone else who used to post a lot around here but disappeared after causing mass hysteria when he said "The list is in PD Hands! Passing is 1215! Throwouts were on the Protest!" Ag3fynst is this you???

7-12 throwouts ... ok lets go to the extreme and say 12 so someone technically could score a 49 originally, picked up all throw outs gets a 61... now passing grade is 61... then vet points seniority jst medals end up scoring in the 80s?

There weren't that many throwouts. I don't know if you guys remember a while back I told you there were 2 lists floating around. One around 1400 and one around 2600. The 1400 list was the actual list after throwouts. The 2600 was the list after the curve.

Exactly. 1400 would have been more than adequate. Especially going by normal list size standards. The 2600 list is a purposely manufactured anomaly.

I know they curved the test. Yet, Why would they curve the test getting an additional 1200 people on the list if they are not planning on hiring most of the 2600 people. If the list was 1400 before and they hire 450 Sgts a year the list is good for 3 years. There wouldnt be any point to curving the test and adding an extra 1200 names just to let the list die at 1700-1800 names in 4 years. This job has to be adding more Sgts then we currently have.

I believe the exam was curved due to the fact that the makeup exams were different. Possibly something to do with making sure all the pass rates were in line to avoid any type of lawsuit. Just my opinion.

How come the mc came out to uneven numbers I got a 73.805? I always thought the questions where all equal had to be worth one point each. Would throw outs cause some questions to be worth more than others?

 You must be very new to this. If u only read a little more. U would have figured it out. The reason its in between was that the passing was dropped below 70 aka curved thats why u got in between.

 Did you read what you wrote ?

 

The 7-12 Extra Points whether its Throw Outs OR *Bonus* points would be for those who scored a 61-69.

At the 70 mark You NOW kick in seniority points. 

Whether it was 5 throw outs + 6 Bonus points for dealing with savage co-workers over the course of your career or a curve for X amount of points.. you guys put in $5 and the Wheel of Fortune Machine Landed on Spin Spin Spin. You reached out and pulled that Lever and in a loud voice you heard WHEEL ! OF ! FORTUNE ! And the Test landed on Mega Throw Outs holding a Curved Arrow Sign.

This created a Lovely Jingle and you Cashed out $100 after putting in $5.

The point is that dudes with a 61 Passed in the 70s and dudes that scored in the HIGH 60s.. ended up in the low 80s if they had around 10+ Years on. Theres multiple ways you can do the calculations.

 But I Get it ! Some have a SENSITIVE EGOs and dont want to hear that they scored a 76 because it was a Curve and they technically didnt EARN IT Because of the TRUE SCORE they saw at the protest session. And you open that DCAS letter and say to yourself OMG how does my score read an 75-80-85 when i freakin scored in the 60s ?

 

OH WELL ! Cash out be grateful and study so u know what your doing when i become your platoon commander and u dont pester me with something like this    Hey EL T. I have a 16 year old in Perfect Mental Health, never went missing before, No Warrants, no Meds, fully capable of Self Care, nothing suspicious, she didnt go Swimming, and she left a note that she was going to be home 3 hours ago. do I call a Level 1 ?  if you dont see the  Errors in asking me such a Question.. thats a problem.

study for the real world because you suck at test taking but i still have faith in you. 

 

Your not getting a 45 to 61 end up with an 80 Dude... 

the Job gave you a Booster Seat so you dont fly out the window. 

Youre ALIVE !

 Thats a very good point. And makes more sense than the job made the list 2600 to hire all 2600 people.

 The .805 comes from medals and seniority points. Thats why theres in between scores.

 I read-only 16 people took it. Not sure how that plays a part. If there were maybe a 100, ok. But 16. Not sure about that theory at all.

 Over 60 people took a makeup exam. 16 on 02/27. 40 took it in late May and there were 2-3 other sessions given with a handful of cops each time. Still a small # though.

There was no curve. Whatever questions were protested were automatically marked correct.....free of lawsuit....and leaving a long list up to the 4 year expiration date from the date the list is published......Not a curve, but about 7-12 legitimate questions protested....thus, giving exam takers who failed in the 60s (if awarded enough on throw outs) to reach a passing grade of a 70....then once you reached the 70 passing grade....the seniority, fitness points, and or medals kicked in.....so its very possible for someone to get a 62....fail initially....pick up 8 points on throwouts, end with a 70, and because of seniority points, fitness, and medals, can land a mid 70s, even 80.....so again! There was no curve, just throw outs, and who did it benefit the most.....senior cops....who did it effect....test takers on the bottom of the list prior to throwouts.....
