Descriptive (non-clinical) personality assessments are often used to better understand your personality traits and individual strengths and then apply that information to better understand yourself and/or guide your development. This week you will complete three of the following online personality tests similar in kind to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and NEO Personality Inventory-Revised (NEO-PI-R), as well as Grit Scale, Mindset Assessment, or Type A Personality Test, and analyze the role culture may have played in the results, as well as how the results might be used to help you achieve your personal goals. 

To Prepare
  • Review the Learning Resources about SMART goals and goal setting
  • Complete three of the following online personality tests, accessible through your Learning Resources, and save the results to use to complete this Assignment: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and NEO Personality Inventory-Revised (NEO-PI-R), Grit Scale, Mindset Assessment, and Type A Personality Test.
  • Review the results of the three descriptive personality tests you completed.
  • Consider the role you believe culture played in the personality assessment you completed. 
Assignment (2–3 pages, in addition to title page and references)

MINDSET ASSESSMENT PROFILE TOOL

For the Teacher: Using the Mindset Assessment

Profile

This is a tool to get a quick assessment of your students’ mindsets—their beliefs about the malleability

of intelligence, the relative importance of learning and perfect performance, and their attitudes toward

effort and mistakes.

It’s important that students not feel labeled by this tool. The MAP categories just represent the way

they are thinking and feeling about these questions at the present time. They can change these beliefs,

and they may feel differently on different days.

You can use this assessment tool in a number of ways. For example, you can use it as an:

1) Individual assessment, scored by the teacher (with the result not shared with the student)

2) Individual assessment, scored by the teacher (with the result shared with the student)

3) Individual assessment, scored by the student

4) Individual assessment, scored by a peer

Once students have completed the assessment, you can follow up with discussions

or activities to explore the issues raised. For example, you can:

 Identify students who scored in the fixed mindset range and discuss 1:1

 Ask students to select the statement where they had a Profile number of 1-3

(the “fixed mindset” range) and write or talk about it.

 Ask students to respond to question 4 about whether they feel the MAP

description fits

them.

 Have pairs of students exchange their profiles and discuss their beliefs.

 Present the overall percentage of students in each Profile category to the

class.

Here are some questions that you might explore in any of the above formats:

 Are there some subjects where you don’t feel confident that you can learn and

do well?

 How do you think it feels to get a bad grade if you believe that you can’t do

any better?

 Can you think of a time when you learned to do something really hard? How

did you learn it?

 What would you be willing to work hard to achieve if you knew it was

possible?

 If you knew that you could develop your intelligence through effort, what goals

would you set for yourself?

Mindset Assessment Profile Tool

Description: Survey for getting a quick assessment of your students’ mindsets

Objective: Students will complete survey and (optional) reflection

Timeline: 10-30 minutes

Instructions:

 Explain to the students that they are about to take a survey. A survey is a tool to

gather information—in this case, your opinions about intelligence, performance,

learning, effort, and challenges. It may look like a test or quiz, but in fact it is

not! Answer honestly and say what you believe. There will be no grade attached

to the survey and the “score” you receive is not a percentage correct. Afterwards,

we will discuss the questions and the different ways that people think about

them.

 Have students answer the survey questions. This can be done anonymously if

desired.

 You may opt to have students self-score, or not.

 You may choose to engage students in reflection through writing or discussion.

After th e surve y

Make sure that you emphasize that the survey is a gauge (like taking a temperature with a

thermometer) of their thinking right now. As we learn new things, our thinking changes.

The survey is not intended to be a way to label students, but rather to get to the core of their

thinking so that new learning can occur.

Option al Ref lecti on/D iscu ssio n

Debrief with your class after they complete the survey. Ask:

 Were there any questions that surprised you?

 Which questions were difficult to answer? Why?

 Are there any questions that you were glad to have been asked?

 Are you excited to learn more about this topic? Why/Why not?

Creating Your Mindset Assessment Profile
1. First, determine your Profile Number for each question.
 For questions with odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7), write the number of your answer into the boxes in the right

column.

 For questions with even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8), use the table below to fill in the gray boxes in the right
column.

If you chose this answer: Then write this number in the gray box on the right (Profile Number).

Disagree A Lot (1) 6

Disagree (2) 5

Disagree A Little (3) 4

Agree A Little (4) 3

Agree (5) 2

Agree A Lot (6) 1

2. Now, add up all your Profile numbers.
 Add up all the numbers in the Profile column on the right, and write the total in the last box in the bottom

right corner.

3. What does your Mindset Profile Number mean?
 Find the group that includes your number in the chart below and circle it.

 Now, read what it says about your MAP group.

If your profile
number falls
into this range:

Then your MAP (Mindset
Assessment Profile) group is:

People in this MAP group usually believe the
following things:

8-12

F5 You strongly believe that your intelligence is fixed—it
doesn’t change much. If you can’t perform perfectly
you would rather not do something. You think smart
people don’t have to work hard.

13-16 F4

17-20

F3 You lean toward thinking that your intelligence doesn’t
change much. You prefer not to make mistakes if you
can help it and you also don’t really like to put in a lot
of work. You may think that learning should be easy.

21-24 F2

25-28

F1 You are unsure about whether you can change your
intelligence. You care about your performance and you
also want to learn, but you don’t really want to have to
work too hard for it.

29-32 G1

33-36

G2 You believe that your intelligence is something that you
can increase. You care about learning and you’re willing
to work hard. You do want to do well, but you think it’s
more important to learn than to always perform well.

37-40 G3

41-44

G4 You really feel sure that you can increase your
intelligence by learning and you like a challenge. You
believe that the best way to learn is to work hard, and
you don’t mind making mistakes while you do it.

45-48 G5

4. Do you think the description under your MAP group matches the way you think and feel about
your school work? Which parts are true for you and which are not?
