How to organize a personality assessment with Pointerpro?

A personality assessment or test shares insights into respondents’ personality profiles. It provides information about their characteristics and how to navigate their social and professional lives with their given personalities. 


Use a Personality Assessment to:

  • Provide helpful information for businesses to better understand their employees’ traits.
  • Understand your strengths and areas of improvement to connect with your team and find success in your role.
  • Give immediate feedback to the assessment taker with a branded, personalized PDF report.

Check out an example of a personality assessment here.

This guide will teach you:

  1. Create your assessment
  2. Add scores
  3. Create Outcomes
  4. Configure Outcome screen layout 

1. Create your assessment

 Start by creating your assessment. Ask questions and provide relevant answers. There are several types of personality tests and personality test questions used by employers to measure the ‘personality fit’ of job seekers. Read more about personality assessments here.

2. Add scores

Add scores to each answer! The Custom Scoring feature allows you to give a score for each answer so that an overall score will be calculated at the end of the questionnaire. Read more information about scoring.

3. Create Outcomes

Outcomes feature offers the possibility to make personality quizzes and business tests that end with advice based on the respondent's answers. 

Use “Outcomes” to specify different personality types. Use our Outcome capabilities (available in our Professional and Enterprise licenses). Use “Business Rules” to specify which outcome will be shown depending on the total score a respondent obtained.

4. Configure Outcome screen layout

Select whether you want to present the outcome with an animated gauge or stand alone on your final screen.

What is the difference between the three types of outcome screens?

  • Basic outcome will display the applicable outcome text (with an image above the text if you choose to upload one). 
  • Gauge outcome will show respondents where they score on a visual gauge comparing to others, together with a message that you've written. 
  • Website redirect will send respondents directly to a website you have specified when the condition is met (skip the outcome screen and send participants directly to a website).

What's next?

  • Use Question grouping & Question blocks: You might want to show more than one question on the screen to make your questionnaire seem shorter. Question grouping is just what you need! You can also activate or de-activate all questions in the question block with one click of a button.
  • Add to formula with question logic: Set up your questionnaire with Formulas and Question logic to add a value to a formula when a certain condition is met. This can be done on a specific answer to a question, on a custom score on a question block, or even an intro field.
  • Use question types that support custom scoring to give a score to each answer, so that an overall score will be calculated at the end of the survey. Not all question types support this feature by default, however you can use formulas to add custom score to your forms, open ended and ranking inquiries.
