    The company I work for is considering changing its applicant testing process. Your supervisor has asked you to research testing methods and make your recommendation. This proposal will be submitted to the vice president for review and consideration.

    Provide an opening paragraph stating the nature of the company (e.g., retail organization, factory, school, police department, etc.

    Select (at minimum) 3 major types of tests (examples include cognitive abilities, motor and physical abilities, personality and interests, achievement tests, work sampling, etc.).

    * Discuss the legal and ethical implications you see with each test.
    * What specific employment laws will be a factor?
    * What adverse impact (if any) may be created in using each test, and how could that be minimized?
