Assessing Personal Skills and Qualities for Admissions and Student Development, Sponsored by ETS


This event will discuss the benefits of knowing more about applicants than what is revealed in GPAs and test scores. Assessing applicants’ perseverance, resiliency, self-discipline, and curiosity, among other qualities can lead to better admission decisions and can serve as the basis for developing those qualities post enrollment to better prepare business school students for their career.

We will discuss various approaches for assessing these qualities, and provide a short demonstration of a novel self-assessment approach being pilot tested by ETS at several Business Schools over the coming year.
