Selection test scores for rail drivers by ethnicity

The request was partially successful.

Dear Rail Delivery Group,

I read with interest RSSB's technical report, "Validation Study of the Train Driver Psychometric Assessment Process".

I am interested in possible adverse impact due to selection tests. I was wondering if you may hold data on selection test scores for rail drivers by ethnicity for the past couple of years.
If available, I would like the scores by test type and by ethnic group, along with the group sample sizes and standard deviations.

Let me know if you hold this type of data or if another office might.

Yours faithfully,

John Fuerst

Hello John

Thanks for taking the time to email us. I understand that you would like
to know the adverse effects caused by the selection test and whether we
have any data on selection test scores for rail drivers by ethnicity.

I would suggest that you contact the Train Operating Company with whom you
would like to be employed. I’m sure that their Customer Services would be
able to answer your query. I'm pleased to include a link below, which you
can use to get the contact details for the relevant train company:

I trust my advice will help you get the required information on selection
test scores for rail drivers, and I hope you have a lovely day.

Thanks again for contacting us, and I will be pleased to assist you if you
have any further questions.

Kind regards
