Reporting Assessment Results

LRI provides valid, criterion-referenced and nationally normed video-delivered programs to measure the soft skills required of most jobs and job-levels within an organization. These positions range from entry-level to highly skilled to managerial. The technology used is called AccuVision®.

The assessment process used by LRI identifies where individuals have effective workplace behaviors, where further development is needed and it provides strategies and resources to develop skill deficits. LRI programs compare individuals’ interpersonal competencies – their soft skills - to a national standard of effective workplace behaviors defined by employers. Over 4,000,000 applicants, incumbents and future workers have been assessed by LRI’s programs.

The following summarizes the reports produced

Feedback Reports – Overview: The basic product of the assessment process is the creation of an individual's Feedback Report. Click here for examples of each of the nine assessment programs’ Feedback Report.

Group Reports – Overview: The data from any number of Feedback Reports can be gathered, analyzed and reported in a Group Report. Click here for examples of each of the nine assessment programs’ Group Report.

Interview Guides – Overview: People being assessed respond to a range of realistic scenarios that depict typical interactions on-the-job. People are asked to choose from four possible answers the one they believe to be the best solution to problems they are presented. Sometimes individuals are inconsistent in their choices: they may pick the best choice one time, the second best another and other times the worst. People using our technology to assess an applicant can request that an Interview Guide be provided which includes mini-simulations that interviewers can use during an interview process. The Guide helps to clarify inconsistent responses. Click here for examples of each of the nine assessment programs’ Interview Guide.
