About the Assessement

Start the CliftonStrengths Assessment

During the 30-40 minute assessment, you’ll see 177 paired statements and choose which one best describes you. The assessment measures your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving and shares your top 5 out of 34 possible strengths. When you complete the assessment, you’ll receive your results immediately from Gallup.

Debriefing Sessions

Following the assessment, Leigh Shamblin, director of leadership in Poole College, will hold the debriefing sessions on Wednesday, Feb. 20 from 1:15-2:45 p.m. and Thursday, March 7 from 3-4:15 p.m. in Nelson 2405.

Leigh will use the top 5 Strengths results from session participants to demonstrate how CliftonStrengths is being used with students and how you might incorporate students’ strengths into your classes. Results will not be shared outside these sessions without your permission.
