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

  • An overall score of quantitative reasoning skills (OVERALL Score). OVERALL is reported on a 28-point scale accompanied by a qualitative rating (Superior, Strong, Moderate, Not Manifested), and a comparison percentile score.

  • Scores for each cognitive skill metric. These metrics are accompanied by a categorical interpretation of the strength of the score indicating areas of strength and areas for future development.

  • The Individual Test Taker Report can be pushed to an email address of the client’s choosing (for example, to an admissions office email, institutional assessment email, dean’s office email, etc.).

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