CapsimInbox Self-assessment

Build Accurate Self Awareness

A feedback report is generated so that participants can obtain a clear picture of their current levels of soft skills proficiency, as well as identify areas in continued need for improvement. The feedback report discloses several scores including:

  • Overall Performance – percentile score compared to the population.
  • Developmental Index – describes general skill proficiency.
  • Self-Awareness Score – reflects the accuracy of the self-assessment.
  • Individual Skill Scores – percentile scores for performance on stimuli relating to the five soft skills.
  • Developmental Tactics – evidence-based recommendations for skill improvement.

Develop a Plan for Success

Participants are also given the opportunity to complete a self-guided process that creates an individual development plan by incorporating tactics with the creation of SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-bound).
