What Is DiSC?
DiSC is a behavioral assessment tool used worldwide by businesses, non-profit companies, government agencies and independent coaches to help people learn to work together more effectively. One of the most important questions about any assessment is: how well does it measure what it claims to measure? And more appropriately “how reliable is this tool”?
Reliability and Validity
Psychological instruments are used to measure abstract qualities that we can’t see–like intelligence, honesty, extroversion or introversion. How are DiSC assessments validated? It can be tricky.
