      The PELLETB is the Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Entry-Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB) exam. What is the PELLETB? The PELLETB is a multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank written examination designed to measure reading and writing ability. Applicants are given 2 ½ hours to complete the PELLETB, which contains five sections: -Spelling (applicants select the correct spelling of a word from a list of options) -Vocabulary (applicants select the correct meaning of a word from a list of options) -Clarity (applicants select the sentence that is most clearly written from a pair of options) -Reading Comprehension (applicants read a passage and answer questions about the passage’s content) -CLOZE (applicants use contextual clues to complete a passage that contains blanks/missing words) How to prepare for the PELLETB? The best method for preparing for the test is to participate in activities that involve reading and writing. Assessment centers at community colleges can generally provide information about specific reading and writing deficiencies and guidance on how to improve those deficiencies. Online writing labs (OWLs) are another tool that can be used to identify weaknesses and improve reading and writing skills. A simple internet search will render results for the many OWLs that are currently available for free on the internet. Sample questions and test format can be found with the practice test link below. http://lib.post.ca.gov/Publications/poWrittenPracticeTest.pdf The PELLETB can be taken multiple times, however, before an applicant can retest, the applicant must wait for a period of one month (31 calendar days) before taking the exam again. This applies even if the exam is taken through a different department/agency than the original exam. If you have any questions please email: recruiting@sacsheriff.com
