The  CWH-NGLE is a police exam that minimizes emphasis on cognitive predictors and heavily weights non-cognitive predictors. This Next Generation Law Enforcement (NGLE) exam was originally developed by CWH Research but now is owned and distributed by I/O Solutions. It is going through a relabeling process and I predict that it will eventually be known as the NGLE written exam.

The NGLE combines a straightforward cognitive ability measure with multiple situational judgment measures. Test time is 3 hours and 15 minutes plus 15 minutes for instructions.
