Group Analytics

  • Clients can generate and download Excel spreadsheet files of all scores (OVERALL and all cognitive score metrics). These also include the responses to optional custom demographic questions added by the client to the assessment profile, and percentile scores corresponding to the external comparison group selected by the client.

  • Presentation-ready tables and graphic representations of the score distribution for OVERALL critical thinking skills and for the additional cognitive mindset and skill metrics.

  • Organizational and institutional clients who have added custom demographic questions can generate sub-group level reports for these variables, or for specific testing sessions or time periods.  

Optional Individual Test-Taker Reports

  • Each mindset attribute is scored on a scale of 50 to 100 points, divided into three qualitative categories: Not Manifested, Inconsistently Manifested, or Strongly Manifested. 

  • The interaction style characteristic metrics are scored in a numeric range of 50 to 100. 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 100-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 admissions office, training officer, program director, recruiter, etc.)

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