  • Nine metrics are reported: Honesty, Dependability, Professionalism, Organization, Foresight, Desire to Learn, Desire to Think, Workplace Safety, and Workplace Tolerance.
  • High scores are positively correlated with a strong desire to apply one’s reasoning skills in problem-solving at this level, and with the capacity to benefit from educational training.

INDIVIDUAL REPORTS document strengths and areas for growth

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 critical thinking 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 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 REPORTS for team assessment, ranking candidates, talent identification

  • 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.

Critical Thinking skills and mindset evaluated

  • INSIGHT assessments include two sets of evaluations;  Section 1 assesses 10 aspects of the business employee mindset. Section 2 assesses 5 decision making skills plus the overall numeric score.
