The knowledge-based test is the only way in the recruitment and selection of Taiwan’s civil servants currently. The psychological tests including intelligence test and aptitude test have been proposed recently to be an additional test apart from the knowledge-based test as a tool to select ‘the best of the fit’ civil servants. Accordingly, the Ministry of Examination, the governmental agency in charge of selecting civil servants, has organized an ad hoc Committee to research on the availability and possibility of taking psychological test as a supplemental way to national exams. The primary initiative is to divide every national exam into two separate stages and make the first stage as the preliminary test. According to the initiate proposal, some questions of intelligence or aptitude test will be added in and scored in the first stage of test. If an examinee ‘fails’ in the preliminary test, then he or she will not be allowed to take the second stage test. In this article the author argues that the relationship between intelligence test and job performance is ambiguous, which has been debated for decades in the field of Psychology and test theory. Despite the arguments, scholars and experts both agree to take the competence-based test in multiple ways of exams to select appropriate members of staff in public and private sectors. Competence-based test seems to contain intelligence test, aptitude test, knowledge-based test, performance-based test and so forth. There is no definite answer when to take aptitude test or knowledge-based test or even take both tests at the same time while recruiting new members of civil servants. Again, there is no definite answer whether the aptitude or intelligence test can be the criteria to differentiate the examinees' proficiency especially in the National Exams of Civil Servants. Therefore, the author argues that unless there is a clear competence management system which can distinguish the relationship between intelligence test, or say, the psychological test and knowledge-based test, the current knowledge-based national examinations should not be easily changed.
