On July 21, 2012 Everything DiSC Profiles began using Adaptive Testing (AT) and a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC style assignment possible. The adaptive testing (AT) assessment data is currently being used in all Everything DiSC Profiles to provide even more precise dot placement on the respondent’s Everything DiSC map. All of the Everything DiSC Profiles will change gradually over time to incorporate additional data and feedback. The new data will be incorporated into not just dot placement, but also into assigning additional shading and priorities on the Everything DiSC map when appropriate. Respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback, even if they prioritize things that aren’t usual for their styles.
Now we’re ready to launch the AT updates to the Everything DiSC Management Profile to provide participants with the benefits of adaptive testing and align with the improvements made to the Everything DiSC Workplace and Everything DiSC Work of Leaders programs.
Adaptive testing produces more precise results, which in turn provides a better experience for the user. The biggest benefit of adaptive testing is a more precise measurement. Increased personalization based on this greater precision and accuracy leads to a more accurate profile and more satisfied participants. When the Everything DiSC Management Profile is updated on October 31, 2013, respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback.
