(a)(1) The commissioner shall, from time to time, conduct the assessments that the commissioner considers necessary for the purpose of establishing lists of eligibles.

(2) The assessments shall be competitive and shall be designed to determine the qualifications, fitness and ability of the applicant to perform the duties of the class of positions for which a list is to be established. The assessment may consist of a written, oral, or physical exam, or a demonstration of skills, or any combination of such types.  The assessment may also consist of an evaluation of education, experience, skill, ability, competency, knowledge, aptitude, capacity, character, and other qualifications as, in the judgment of the commissioner, may determine and measure the relative ability of the applicant.

(3) No part of an assessment shall be framed to elicit information concerning the race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, religion or creed, or political opinions or affiliations of an applicant.

(b) The commissioner may substitute a working test period in lieu of a written assessment for an applicant with a disability, who has been certified as unable to perform such a test by the department.  The working test period shall not exceed one (1) year.

(c) The commissioner shall notify each applicant in writing of the results of the assessment as soon as reasonably practicable.

(d) A manifest error in the assessment result shall be corrected, if called to the attention of the commissioner within one (1) month after the establishment of the list of eligibles.  The correction, however, shall not invalidate any appointment previously made from such list.
