What do you get?

Relevant, easy to read, easy to use results.

 

All INSIGHT solutions feature customized professional assessments and comprehensive metrics on the strengths and weaknesses of 15 key aspects of decision making.

Employee assessments include INSIGHT Business, INSIGHT Health, INSIGHT Law, INSIGHT First Responder, INSIGHT Defense, INSIGHT Educator and INSIGHT Science and Engineering.  INSIGHT Development Program includes access to an assessment metric and performance reporting tools.

Clear concise reports provide the reliable data analysis you need for hiring, promoting, training and future planning.

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.

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. The multi-level scales on INSIGHT products have been rigorously calibrated to show how applicants apply their reasoning skills to job-related situations.
