INSIGHT Science and Engineering Professional measures:

Thinking Mindset

  • The most successful science and engineering professionals have a mindset that includes being resourceful, collaborative, truth-seeking, open-minded, inquisitive, focused, organized, foresightful.  Do your science and engineering employees and job candidates bring these mental attributes to their work? To determine whether a person manifests these important attributes INSIGHT Science and Engineering Professional Mindset surveys the person’s beliefs, intentions, and values.  The person’s responses are gathered, sorted, and scored to produce a profile of the thinking mindset with which the person approaches problem solving and decision making. Each mindset attribute is then characterized as not-manifested, positive, or strongly positive.   
  • Time Allowed: 30 minutes
  • Format: short “agree-disagree” style items

Reasoning Skills

  • Science and experience professionals rely on their thinking skill to solve complex problems and to make technically challenging decisions. Their knowledge must be up to date, their performance well practiced, and their thinking must be sound and logical.  INSIGHT Science and Engineering Professional Reasoning Skills Test provides an assessment of overall strength of their thinking skills. Using workplace related science and engineering scenarios, questions on the skills portion of the INSIGHT SE Pro challenge test takers to apply their thinking skills. The scenarios provide the context and the vital information needed to reason to the best option. The skills evaluated, in addition to an overall rating, are specific skills in analyzing situations, determining impacts, projecting outcomes, evaluating options, and explaining reasons.
  • Time Allowed: 60 minutes
  • Format: scenario based multiple choice questions requiring application of the core problem solving skills associated with professional level reasoning.

INSIGHT Science and Engineering Professional is one of the professional domain specific members of the  INSIGHT suite of professional thinking tests. INSIGHT assessments are tailored for Business, Health, Defense, First Responder, Government/Law, and Science/Engineering. INSIGHT assesses decision-making skills and thinking mindset attributes in potential hires and employees at all levels of your organization.

INSIGHT Reports and Analysis

What do you get? Results you can use.

Easy to read, easy to use comprehensive metrics on the strengths and weaknesses of key aspects of decision making. 

Clear concise reports provide the reliable analysis you need for hiring, promoting and future planning. Printable INDIVIDUAL REPORTS document strengths and areas for growth for 15 key thinking skill and mindset metrics.

For each individual you will know:
  • Overall score: You will know if the total numeric score indicates Superior, Strong, Moderate skills at this level-- or if the skills were Not Manifested.
  •  Did the individual candidate demonstrate core reasoning skills in the required decision making domains?  Reports explain each of the key aspects of decision making and how it impacts success. At a glance, you’ll see a qualitative rating (Superior, Strong skills, Moderate, or Not Manifested) for each skill or attribute. 
  • Numerical scores and recommended performance assessments reported reflect the extent to which the person being assessed manifested a given skill or attribute.  The recommended performance assessments (qualitative scores) reported are always relative to the level of the INSIGHT assessment instrument: Executive, Professional, Staff or Support.
Group Report Options:
  • Group reports can be requested at any time as an additional service.  Group reports display aggregated statistics and bar-charts on each INSIGHT metric. These reports have many uses including guiding employee development initiatives over time, comparing different groups engaged in similar tasks at a given organizational level or aiding in the establishment of threshold skill levels to qualify candidates for interviews.
Thinking Skills and Mindset
  • INSIGHT assessments include two sets of evaluations;  Section 1 assesses 10 aspects of the business mindset. Section 2 assesses 5 decision making skills plus the overall numeric score. The multi-level scales on INSIGHT products have been rigorously calibrated to show how applicants apply their reasoning skills to job-related situations.
