Talent spotting and development

INSIGHT Educator Professional is used by institutions and organizations responsible for preparing educators to have the reasoning skills and mindset attributes needed to model and develop critical thinking skills in students or trainees.  The assessments that comprise the INSIGHT product line have been developed over the past two decades through the collaboration of industry leaders, cognitive scientists, psychometric experts, and expert trainers of reasoning and decision-making.

INSIGHT Educator Professional provides group reports that can be vitally important to guide future training, candidate evaluation and employee development purposes. Uses for the report data include:

  • Cohort Assessment – to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a group of individuals entering an educational program.
  • Outcomes Assessment – to evaluate the overall success of the group as compared to expectations, external criterion or to the group’s own starting point (INSIGHT Educator pre-test) scores.

  • Staff Development – to measure the relative strengths of various employee groups or to assess the readiness of the group to undergo more advanced training.

INSIGHT Educator Professional individual assessment reports demonstrate the personal and professional relevance and value of personal skills. Printable personal reports provide realistic analysis of strengths and weaknesses in 15 core components of excellence in thinking and reasoning.
