    Stop Complaining

    My friend they still haven't released the validity analysis for the BQ. Considering the controversy, one would think that it would be posted on every billboard if in fact it was applicable to the test as given. Seems like it's easier to get secret info on the Roswell crash. It will also be...

    Sign the Petition: Hold the FAA Accountable for the Recent Air Traffic Controller (ATC) Hiring Bid

    That's great for you, but don't lecture anybody about grabbing the bull by the horns - who do you think you are? You don't seem to understand that what everybody is bitching about is the PROCESS. What part of that don't you understand? I could list at least 20 of the questions asked on the...

    Sign the Petition: Hold the FAA Accountable for the Recent Air Traffic Controller (ATC) Hiring Bid

    Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Requires all testing and hiring process to be non disparate against any protected group. Unless you kind sir can show otherwise, nobody has been able to find or produce the validity study that the FAA reference in their dq announcements. The three...

    The problem is that, unless you can show otherwise, they can't/won't produce any documentation showing that the bio Q is VALID. Three of their own reports from 2012 and 2013 said that it needs further testing before it should be used. Nobody objects to a meaningful process, but this was a joke.

    You might feel a little different if you served about 12 years in the military and this was your last chance before you aged out. The FAA can't do whatever they want - they have to follow the law. And unless you can show everybody here the ANALYSIS that shows that their bullshit BQ was valid...

    Random Thought About the BQ

    Buckeye10 the one thing that you're post clearly displayed is that somebody is an idiot, but it's not BQislikesodomy. Nobody bashed the people that passed the BQ, they're bashing the BQ and it's validity. Since you seem to be the know-it-all almighty, why don't you point out to all us village...

    What Has FAA HR Told You?

    With all do respect, you're a jerk. Most people posting on this site are not complaining that they're entitled to anything. Some have a lot more education and life experience than you or I yet they were dq'd because of a piece of shit exam that had NOTHING to do with ATC. For many who served...

    Random Thought About the BQ

    If everything was on the up and up, wouldn't you think that the FAA would be posting the third party validation study on every street corner in order to justify the BQ and it's use. But instead, crickets. IF it exists then it's being guarded like a national secret. Isn't it a fricken shame...

    In 1978, the EEOC and three other federal agencies—the Civil Service Commission (predecessor of the Office of Personnel Management) and the Labor and Justice Departments—jointly issued the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures. The Guidelines incorporate a set of principles...

    1. I'm sure the FAA has in some fashion or another determined that the Biographic Assessment was worth using. It is most definitely based in statistical data that has been collected from every off the street applicant for that last decade. I can remember taking this same test at CAMI. It's not...

    The BQ really screened them well. Perhaps some of us might want to go back to a 6th grade writing class.

    That's incorrect. You can find the link on a previous post to a FAA analytical that describes how it was developed. What is most interesting is the conclusion stating that more research needs to be done to determine its validity.

    GS3k you just don't get it...I think the subject may be a little to difficult to comprehend. We're talking about averages here and there's equal bias to several questions. You keep bringing up your individual circumstance. Let's try it this way... If they gave the BQ to several groups of 100...

    My error on the previous post where I said that they're only passing 13 out of 14 applicants...I meant DQing 13 out of 14. I should have said that when they're only passing 1 out of 14 individuals that take the BQ, the small deviations due to non neutrality of questions can have a pronounced...

    And regarding years of research and peer review behind it.... Could you please cite your source for that statement. Where is the years of research and peer review behind the 60 question BQ? Nobody has been able to find any review of this assessment other than the July 2012 review done by the...
