SchoolPlace Applications and Insights

SchoolPlace Big Five Profile™ —An empowerment tool for student success

The SchoolPlace Big Five Profile™ is a normative test and was normed on 12 to 22 year old students from both public and private high schools and universities. The test’s average coefficient alpha of .81 is among the highest for assessments of similar length and scope.

Career Counseling/Coaching:

When you combine personality traits with the Center for Applied Cognitive Studies’ Career Guider and Learner report, a coach may then assist a student to capitalize on strengths, minimize challenges, develop a career plan, help the student select the right educational program, prepare for their career, and study effectively.

Team Building:

In a team building session using the SchoolPlace Big Five Profile™, students will learn about themselves, their teammates, and how to improve communications and teamwork with others.  This type of session is appropriate for cooperative learning teams, study teams, project teams, and sports teams, as well as community volunteer teams.

Leadership Development:

In a leadership development session using the SchoolPlace Big Five Profile™, students will learn about their personality profile and how it relates to the typical leader profile.  They will learn strategies to compensate for their natural behaviors in instances where they differ from the typical leader profile, discovering what one can and cannot change.
