All TalentClick assessments are normative, which is the gold standard for use in employee selection. With normative assessments, the data for individuals is analyzed (scored) against the appropriate normative group, whereas ipsative assessments analyze the strength of orientations within a person (i.e. the test-taker), not compared to others.
Normative scoring is a requirement for a tool to be legally defensible for employment-related decisions and thus suitable for hiring. This is in contrast to ipsative assessments (e.g., Myers Briggs, DiSC, StrengthsFinder and others), which are most suitable for self-development or team-building exercises.
