What is the Morris&McDaniel Firefighter Test?

The Morris&McDaniel Firefighter S.H.I.E.L.D. test was designed to help employers select the most capable entry-level firefighters. This test battery is used to measure the specific skills and cognitive abilities you will need in order to become a successful firefighter.

The framework of the Morris $ McDaniel S.H.I.E.L.D. for firefighters is similar to S.H.I.E.L.D. for Police, though the subject matter of each component mirrors the tasks and situations encountered by firefighters. Those components include:

  • Reading Test for Fire (RTF): Assesses candidates' reading level which is required to perform well during the training process.
  • Candidate Self-Report for Fire (CSR-F): Evaluates test-takers integrity, service orientation, and desirable work ethic.
  • Entry-Level Fire Test (ELF): Measures a variety of abilities and skills needed for an entry-level firefighter career.
  • Structured Oral Presentation (SOP): Measures important performance dimensions which are needed to be a successful firefighter.

Morris & McDaniel Firefighter Math Sample Question

Kathy went shopping and bought a dress that was originally $130 for 40% off, what was Kathy's final savings?

A. 40$.
B. 52$.
C. 62$.
D. 78$.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is B.

If Kathy bought a dress for 40% off, that means that she saved 40% of the original price, which in this question is $130. To calculate 40% of 130 we multiply 0.40×130, which is the same as,

(40×130)/100

=(4×13×10×10)/100

=(52×100)/100

=52

 

Note that the question asked for Kathy's savings, therefore 52 is the correct answer. However, had the question asked how much money Kathy spent, we would need to subtract her savings (52) from the original price (130) and we would have received 78.

 

Alternative explanation:

Another possibility is to calculate 10% of the original price and multiply this amount by 4 (giving you the needed 40%).

 

(10 x 130) / 100 =

1300 / 100 = 13

13 x 4 = 52
