DFPS needs the most qualified leaders, and we choose those leaders through a fair and impartial process. So, to become a supervisor, you are required to pass an assessment before you can apply.

Anyone who meets the minimum criteria (see the Supervisor Assessment Guide) is eligible to take the supervisor assessment. If you are interested, we recommend you take the assment now - do not wait for a supervisor position to open up to register!

Here are the key points of the process:

  • The supervisor job postings require you to first pass an assessment to be eligible for a supervisor position.
  • A passing score is 80%. You will be notified of your results once it is graded. If you pass, your certificate will be emailed to you.
  • You may register for and take the assessment any time prior to applying for a supervisor position. You do not have to apply for a position before you take the assessment.
  • DFPS offers the assessment every month at 15 locations around Texas. Dates and locations for all DFPS programs are listed below.
  • If you are a current employee, register for your assessment in the Learning Station on the DFPS intranet. Search for "Leadership in DFPS - Supervisor Track."
  • If you do not currently work for DFPS, register for your assessment by emailing DFPS Promotions.
  • Registration for each assessment closes three days before the date of the assessment.
  • All tests are from 10:00 a.m. till 12:00 p.m. You should arrive 15 minutes early. If you arrive late, you will not be allowed to take the assessment at that time, but you may register for another, later assessment.
  • If you do not pass, you can take the assessment again. You may take the assessment as many times as you need to be successful.
  • Study material for the assessment are available for APS, CPS, and SWI, as well as the HR policies you will need to know.

To learn more, read the Supervisor Assessment Guide. Contact DFPS Promotions if you have questions or need help.
