Explanation:Under the new chapters there will be no certifiable scores. Tests will have passing points, but the concept of a certifiable score as a requirement set higher than the passing point is being eliminated.

1.15'Eligible' means any person who, after receiving a final passing rating in a Civil Service examination, is currently on an eligible list. (REPEAL)

Explanation:Currently Civil Service maintains registers or lists of eligibles containing the names of all persons who pass any required test or receive a passing rating. Under the new chapters, although each person who takes a test will have an individual test record, Civil Service will no longer maintain registers or lists of all eligible applicants. So the term "eligible" is no longer needed.

1.29'Provisional Appointment' means a temporary appointment of a person to a position in the absence of an adequate eligible list, until such time as the appointed employee demonstrates the required skill level to qualify for the job. (REPEAL)

Explanation: Because all appointees will be required to complete any requisite Civil Service test prior to appointment, the need for provisional appointments will be eliminated.
