Normative Data for the Professional and Administrative Career Examination (PACE): FY 1975. Technical Memorandum 76-15.
The performance of all 200,000 examinees on the Professional and Administrative Career Examination (PACE) in fiscal year 1975, its first year of administration, is presented in l0 graphs and l00 tables. The data describe the ratings obtained by six groups of competitors: by series of written test, by Veteran Preference status, by Outstanding Scholar status, by sex, by current federal employment, by geographic region, and by college major. A second set of tables shows the interaction of Veteran Preference, Outstanding Scholar, sex of competitor, and written test performance on the probability of consideration for federal employment. The final tables indicate the proportions of competitors at or above certain ratings--hence the probabilities that such groups will be given employment consideration--as a function of current federal employment, geographic region, and college major. This report is part of the planned documentation of the PACE, describing characteristics of the PACE competitor population in terms of this employment program and its written test. The report should also be helpful to Commission personnel concerned with staffing patterns in PACE occupations, and to college recruiting officials. (Author/CP)
