Predictive Index (PI)
As a graduate student in the College of Business, you will participate in a variety of team activities, and in some instances, you will be placed on permanent learning teams with members of your cohort. To add to the success of your team experiences, you will be asked to take the PI assessment in advance of your orientation activities to give you and your teammates insights into yourselves and each other as you strive to work together at the highest levels. The PI is a behavioral analysis tool that measures both cognitive reasoning and inherent motivating needs. You will be sent a link via email once you’ve paid your deposit so that you can complete the assessment online, and then your results will be shared with you along with an overview of the PI tool so that you can best understand and utilize this new bank of insightful information throughout your graduate school experience.
Please note that you will receive an invitation to complete your PI assessment from the email address email@example.com. Be sure to add this and the following email addresses to your address book for your personal email account so important messages are not sent to your spam folder: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
