Week 5 Assessment Tools Reading

Read about the three assessments in this document and complete the worksheet that follows.

I. The DiSC Assessment

The DiSC Assessment is a behavior assessment tool that we learned about in JGR 100. It centers

on four different behavioral traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness.

DiSC can be used to assess an employee’s general personality, and which type of job (and

accompanying work style) may suit them best. It can also help to identify someone’s

management style and how they can most efficiently manage employees with differing

personalities.

SAMPLE DiSC QUESTIONS

1. In my work environment, it is most important to me to:

a. Help co-workers and to be in a peaceful environment.

b. Feel that my co-workers admire me and to be free from rigid rules.

c. Know exactly what is expected of me and to finish one task before moving to another.

d. Get things done and to see results.

2. In my work environment, it is least important to me to:

a. Help co-workers and to be in a peaceful environment.

b. Feel that my co-workers admire me and to be free from rigid rules.

d. Get things done and to see results.

3. When someone offers an opinion or conclusion and I disagree, I am most likely to…

II. The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT)

The CCAT measures an individual’s aptitude, or ability, to solve problems, digest and apply

information, learn new skills, and think critically. The CCAT consists of 50 items that involve

reasoning and problem-solving skills that need to be completed in just 15 minutes.

Tests like this are valuable predictors for success in hiring people for jobs that require problem-

solving and analytical skills. Not only that, but research also shows that cognitive aptitude is one

of the most accurate predictors of job success: twice as predictive as job interviews, three times

as predictive as experience, and four times as predictive as education level.

SAMPLE CCAT QUESTIONS

1) If a train travels at a speed of 400 miles per hour, how many hours will it take to travel 3000

miles?

A. 5

B. 6

C. 6.5

D. 7

E. 7.5
