Pre assessment-1

  1. 1. SLS1001-Winter 20122Instructor: Leith MazzochiYOUR NAME:Before using an assessment, you should know: • Assessment results represent preferences, not absolutes. • There are no “right” or “wrong” answers, one style is not better than another. • Most people have strength in more than one dimension or preference. • Results should be used to inspire understanding rather than to lock you into a particular “label.” • The environment or circumstances under which you take an assessment may influence the results.
  2. 2. PRE-COURSE: ASSESS YOUR ANALYTICAL THINKING SKILLS For each statement, put brackets ( ) around the number that feels right to you, from 1 for “not at all true for me” to 5 for “very true for me.” Example: 1 2 3 (4) 5. (I selected 4 and put brackets around it). 1 2 31 I recognize and define problems effectively. (4) 5 1 2 32 I see myself as a “thinker,” “analytical,” “studious.” 4 (5) When working on a problem in a group setting, I like to break down the 1 2 33 problem into its components and evaluate them. (4) 5 1 2 34 I need to see convincing evidence before accepting information as fact. 4 (5) 1 2 35 I weigh the pros and cons of plans and ideas before taking action. 4 (5) 1 2 36 I tend to make connections among bits of information by categorizing them. (4) 5 1 (2) 37 Impulsive, spontaneous decision-making worries me. 4 5 1 2 38 I like to analyze causes and effects when making a decision. 4 (5) 1 2 39 I monitor my progress toward goals. 4 (5)1 1 2 3 Once I reach a goal, I evaluate the process to see how effective it was.0 (4) 5

PRE-COURSE: ASSESS YOUR CREATIVE THINKING SKILLS For each statement, put brackets ( ) around the number that feels right to you, from 1 for “not at all true for me” to 5 for “very true for me.” 1 (2) 31 I tend to question rules and regulations. 4 5 1 2 32 I see myself as “unique,” “full of ideas,” “innovative.” 4 (5) 1 2 33 When working on a problem in a group setting, I generate a lot of ideas.
