Sec. 316. (1) Unless otherwise provided in an article, a board and the department shall develop
an examination or test required by an article. The board and the department in developing an examination or test may adopt an examination
or test prepared by another agency if the board and the department determine that
the examination or test serves as a basis for determining whether a person has the
knowledge and skills to perform an occupation with competence.
(2) The material required by the board and the department to develop an examination
or test may be considered by the board in a closed session, if the board meets the
requirements of section 7 of the open meetings act, 1976 PA 267, MCL 15.267.
(3) A board and the department, in determining the form the recommended examination
or test shall take, shall give special emphasis to an alternative form of testing
which permits a person to demonstrate a special qualification a person may have which
is not evident under a written examination, but which is related to an occupation. The alternative form of testing shall be structured to give weight to a person's
experience, noninstitutional training, and innate skills and shall be flexible enough
to enable a person with a mental or physical disability to demonstrate that the person has the requisite knowledge and skills.
