It has always been our aim to make Personality Dimensions® as widely accessible to as many people as possible around the world. You may remember earlier this year we asked you, the ones who deliver Personality Dimensions® all the time, where you wanted us to focus our efforts next. Overwhelmingly you told us that you wanted to have PD Basics™ put online… and we’ve done just that! We could have just put the paper-based assessment online, but that just isn’t our style… we wanted to give your more. PD Basics Online™ has all the same parts as the paper-based assessment but we’ve added to the report to include other areas: Getting Along With the four personalities, Problems Caused By, Rewarding each of the personalities, and descriptions of Preferred Work Environments.
PD Basics™ was created with lower English literacy skills in mind. It was painstakingly edited, reviewed, re-edited, and reviewed many times over to bring it to a reasonable and consistent grade level; It falls somewhere between a grade 4 -5 on the Flesch–Kincaid readability test. It uses the same concepts, and some of the same terminology at the original Personality Dimensions® assessment, but removes the colloquialisms, and slang terms that can be difficult to understand for adults who are learning English, or have lower literacy skills.
If you’re working with youth/teenagers, this assessment isn’t for you. We have a different version of Personality Dimensions® for them – PD for Youth™. PD for Youth™ uses phrases, terminology, and life experiences that are more in line with this age group, and is more relatable. Right now it is available in the paper-based format with Participant Packs™ and Dimensions Cards™, but we are working hard to get it up and running online for the beginning of September. PD for Youth Online™ will have a bunch of new content for the report, and all new Dimensions Cards™, and we’ll let you know when it’s ready.
Access to PD Basics Online™ has already been added to existing qualifying accounts on CLSRassessments.com, but if you want to try it out for yourself, let us know and we can add a free credit to your account so you can see how it looks.
