The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the different types of tests that are currently being-used in the workplace, as they relateto clerical/secretarial, the disabled, and affirmative action. There are many misconceptions about testing, and in Chapter 1, I will dispel some of those myths, from the history of testing in the workplace to present day testing. Several types of tests will also be discussed, since they are used for hiring and promotion of clerical workers. Chapter II will focus on the changes in testing for the disabled worker / and' the hiring process. It will also explain the tests that are sometimes used to disqualify potential employees; and additionally, special tests used* for the disabled worker will also be examined;. ’ Chapter III explains affirmative action and tests used that would affect affirmative action policies. As those «policies relate to employment testing.
