Program Procedures

research_assistance_2.jpg1.  Upon approval of your research project, a Winslow Website will be created for your project. The number of Profile Passwords required will be placed in your account at no cost to you.

2.  Now activate a Profile Password for each of your subjects; the system will email them a Password & assessment directions.

3. The participants complete the self-administered, multiple-choice questionnaire, on the Internet at your/their location and convenience.

4.  As each Profile is completed, the System will check the participant's answers to determine the accuracy and objectivity of their answers to the assessment questions. Approximately thirty percent of all participants have invalid assessments on their first take. This occurs because some participants intentionally select answers they think will provide desirable results, or they unintentionally exaggerate their responses to the questions.

5.  When an assessment is inaccurate or positively biased, a letter will immediately appear on screen, explaining why their results were invalid, along with suggestions for retaking the Profile. Winslow Research will not produce assessment results unless the answers to the Profile are an accurate and objective description of your subjects' personality and attitudes.

6.  Immediately after a Profile is completed and valid, the assessment results will be available to you on your Winslow Website.

7.  When you complete your research project and write the Report, you agree to send to our institute two complete bound copies of your research report/results.


Assessment Results

Personality Profiles graphically illustrate the personality traits measured by the program (11 or 24 traits). The trait scores are presented in separate Trait Group Profiles, which group together the traits most closely related to one another.

Average Group Profile is available upon request, wherein the average score for all of your subjects are plotted on one Profile. The highest and lowest score attained by any subject for each of the traits measured, are also indicated.

Average Sub-group Profiles are available upon request. These Profiles allow you to place your subjects into sub-groups for analysis. For example: "Successful" managers on one Group Profile and "Unsuccessful" managers on another; or you may wish to group your subjects by age, location, position, or any other criterion.

Distribution Profiles are available upon request. These Profiles indicate how many of your subjects score in each of the scoring zones (1 to 10), for each of the traits measured.

Data Files are available for a nominal cost. This feature will enable you to download the raw scores to a spread sheet for ease of analysis.
