Individual Test-Taker Reports

  • Each defense professional mindset attribute is scored on a 40-point scale divided into three qualitative categories (Not Manifested, Positive, Strong Positive).

  • The three interactive style characteristics are scored 0 through 40. Scores at the extremes indicate consistent manifestation of that end of the style characteristic spectrum.  Mid-range scores indicate situational awareness and manifestation of both aspects of that interactive characteristic.

  • Each reasoning skill metric is scored on a 300-point scale with corresponding qualitative ratings (Not Manifested, Moderate, Strong, and Superior).

  • The Individual Reports can be pushed as PDF files to an email address of the client’s choosing (for example, to an HR department hiring officer, a senior manager, or to an external search-firm or professional development consultant).

  • The client controls whether individual reports are made available to the test-taker.

  • A short PDF assessment report debrief document to help in understanding scores – it can be distributed by the client to the people who were assessed.

Optional Group Analytics

  • Excel spreadsheet files of all scores on all metrics. These also include the responses to optional custom demographic questions added by the client to the assessment profile.

  • Presentation-ready tables and graphic representations of the score distribution for all metrics.
