Has anyone been invited to the JSAP?  Has there been a TAP-S test scheduled?  EOD is slated for 12/27.

I took the JSAP the day before its closing date, which was the 28th of oct. I have not received anything about my score or any email for that matter. Yesterday, my status on the careerConnect says under consideration. I have not received any email to complete the TAP

Hello everyone.  Just got a notification to take the JSAP.  Can anyone offer insight as to what this is?  Do you have to answer questions, click buttons, and data enter as you go with no opportunity to think about your response or ensure accuracy?  Is there an audio file to listen to? Should I record it to refer back or is it too fast a paced test?  I know it is a critical test..perhaps the most critical.. but if it is a breeze or an easy test, I dont want to worry about it easily.  I have plenty of experience with computer screens and multiple windows working for a state DMV as a customer service rep so that's no big deal.  If anyone has any detailed insight as to how the test progresses, what to expect and how to get your score, I would appreciate it.  Thanks!

Helo,
you will have plenty of time to take the test, so do not rush.
And if you have experience with multiple screens and researching, you should do fine. I am still awaiting my score.
goodluck

Just took the JSAP.. It was E-Z!!  To anyone out there reading these pages who is preparing to take it, do not stress, you do not feel time pressured and the in-assessment instructions are very helpful!!  We deal with situations far more diffucult in our everyday jobs. (Especially mine as customer service at the DMV).  Will post my rating/score when I receive it.

One lady said we would probably hear something this week or next.  That didn't seem possible since she also said they were giving TAPs this coming Saturday.  Also, with T'giving next week I wonder about that too.  In reading other threads, there seems to be a lot of waiting!

Today I received email notice to complete the e-QIP on-line.  I called to clear up some mis-information they had and learned that they are just now beginning the background checks, etc.

Anybody else with updates?

I WANT TO NOW IF YOU USED THE PROCEDURE PART AT ANYTIME WHILE TESTING? I DID NOT AND FEEL I SHOULD HAVE BY THE UNSTRUCTIONS ONCE I SUBMITTED. THE TEST IS EASY, BUT I GET TENSED EASY AND FEEL SOME OF MY ANSWERS NEEDED ANSWERING BY THE HIGHLIGHTED PROCEDURE PART. I USED THE OPTION FOR ALL OF MY ANSWERS WITHOUT GOING TO THE PROCEDURES AT ALL.

When you get the e-mail to take the tap your score for the Jsap is in it, it is under your ratings.

I'm supposed to go in for the TAP this Saturday. Sounds like some of you have already taken it? Does anybody have an idea of how many more they will be hiring? Reason I'm asking is because I'm coming from out of state to take it.

As far as I know they have not hired anybody yet.  Of course they may have and I'm not one of them!  I took the TAP Sat Nov 13 and they said it would be given again Sat Nov 20.

Thanks for the update. I'm still deciding whether to make the drive tomorrow. I really want the job though.

I don't know how far you would be driving, and how willing you are to re-locate -- but my feeling is that your chances would be pretty good since they are still wanting candidates.  But this is my first time in a process like this.......
