A quality focus is maintained through to the final report. The result is a clear, professional report that can be used to capture the attention of recruiters, to focus performance discussions and to inform a professional development strategy.
Three levels of statistical validation are available to flag inconsistent ratings or to exclude responses from outliers.
The Entegrys Focus® Reports
The Focus® feedback reports provide a rich source of information for both management and the individual being assessed. For example, they:
- Include both numerical and graphical depictions of average ratings to clearly identify the individual’s development relative to the desired complexity levels in the job profile.
- Indicate the individual’s readiness for more senior positions by showing ratings even for levels beyond those required for this position.
- Include standard interpretation notes and four unique data reporting sections, i.e. Performance Summary, Comparative View*, Key Behaviour Details*, and Assessor Comments. Together, they paint a comprehensive picture of the individual’s strengths and development needs. *Available in the Performance and 360 Focus® reports.
Three levels of statistical validation on 360 Focus® reports
Inter-rater Agreement Measure
The inter-rater Agreement Measure indicates the confidence the user can have that the ratings accurately reflect what they are designed to measure. In general, the higher the agreement measure, the less likelihood of either randomness or inconsistency in the ratings.
Average Sum Validity Check
The Average Sum Validity Check flags assessor responses with statistically high or low ratings relative to other responses. Outlier responses can be excluded from the report if desired. Note: This feature is only available to Enterprise Plan subscribers.
Standard Deviation Validity Check
The Standard Deviation Validity Check compares the variations in assessor ratings for the individual being assessed. Too high or low a variation in ratings relative to other assessors is likely to indicate a failure to differentiate observed behaviour objectively. Note: This feature is only available to Enterprise Plan subscribers.
Two high performance engines to power the Focus Suite® tools.
The Entegrys Competency Dictionary
Our competency dictionary has been proven and enhanced over time with a wide variety of organizations in such diverse sectors as financial, scientific, technology, government, the arts and not-for-profit. Each competency in the Entegrys Competency Dictionary is defined over four increasing levels of complexity. As a result, multiple single-level competencies can be encompassed within any one Entegrys competency. A decision matrix is used to create consistency from level to level and between competencies. This rigor and consistency facilitate sound quantitative ratings and enable a direct numerical comparison from one team member to another.
The Entegrys Job Library
A job profile identifies the six to ten competencies most critical for effective performance in that job, as well as the desired level of complexity for each competency. Built from the Entegrys Competency Dictionary, the ever-expanding Entegrys Job Library represents a wide range of roles and careers. Simply choose the one that mirrors your requirements most closely. With an Enterprise Plan, you can add your own customized job profiles to reflect your unique culture and specific jobs.
Two flexible, value-add tools for Enterprise Plan clients
A tool to help clients develop customized job profiles and period.
The more precisely you can define the critical competencies for key roles in your organization, the better you will be able to hire and train for those roles, saving you both time and money.
The Role Focus™ tool enables Enterprise Plan subscribers to easily engage any number of stakeholders in identifying the critical competencies for key roles. The report separates the ratings of managers, incumbents and direct reports to offer you invaluable insight into their different perspectives on the role. Your customized job profiles can then be used with the three Focus Suite™ tools to assess any team member’s fit for those roles..
Using the Team 360 Focus® tool, we can compile a report of the 360 Focus® results for your entire team. The report gives you a clear picture of how well the team is performing. Use it to compare strengths and development needs of individuals to the team’s average. Or, identify and track trends and organizational concerns.
