Learn How the NYS Court Officer Exam Is Structured

The Court Officer Exam consists of the following 5 assessments:

Remembering Facts and Information – In this section, you will be shown a written description of an incident, which you will be allowed to read and study for 5 minutes before it is removed (you will not be able to refer back to it or make any written notes). After a delay of 10 minutes, you will have to answer questions regarding the facts described in the incident.  

Reading, Understanding and Interpreting Written Material – In this section, your ability to comprehend and analyze written material is tested. There will be two types of assessment questions:

Format A – You will be presented with short reading passages followed by questions that regard the information contained in them. You will not be required to have prior knowledge pertaining to the subject matter covered in the passages.

Format B – You will be given brief passages from which words or phrases have been removed, and four alternatives to fill in the missing text. You will need to select the word or phrase which best fits the passage based on grammar, context and logic.

Applying Facts and Information to Given Situations – This section aims to assess your competence at applying NYS Court Officer policies to specific situations that may be faced on the job. You will be presented with a regulation or procedure and required to determine the best way to use it in a given situation.

Clerical Checking – In this section, your ability to distinguish between similar letters, names, numbers and codes is evaluated. You will be shown three sets of information presented in different fonts and will be required to establish whether they are identical or not.

Court Record Keeping – This section aims to evaluate your ability to read, synthesize and handle information from various written sources. You will be provided with different types of tables and will be asked to combine and reorganize the data contained in them in order to answer the questions.
