ETS Personal Potential Index (ETS PPI)
Grades, transcripts and test scores provide a solid understanding of an applicant’s academic performance, but don’t reflect the noncognitive skills or core personal attributes that provide a more complete picture of an applicant’s potential for success. ETS Personal Potential Index (ETS PPI) helps programs make better admissions decisions by providing standardized, applicant-specific information on core personal attributes that graduate deans and faculty have identified as important for success in graduate study. These include: knowledge and creativity, resilience, communication skills, planning and organization, teamwork, and ethics and integrity.
In less than 15 minutes, Our evaluator can provide an assessment of your personal attributes — enabling you to then share this feedback quickly and easily with multiple institutions.
About the ETS Personal Potential Index
Show Graduate Programs a More Complete Picture of Your Potential for Success
You know you are more than just the sum of your grades, test scores and recommendation letters. The ETS Personal Potential Index (ETS PPI) gives you the opportunity to provide graduate, business and professional schools with more evidence about your capabilities. Submitting an ETS PPI Evaluation Report can show them that you are up to the challenge of graduate, business or professional school.
What Does the ETS PPI Measure?
The ETS PPI provides reliable information on six personal attributes that graduate schools have indicated are critical for academic success:
- Knowledge and creativity
- Communication skills
- Planning and organization
- Ethics and integrity
You select evaluators ( which in this case will be Diplomat Institute – faculty members or supervisors) to evaluate you on each of these dimensions by responding to 24 statements and providing an overall rating. Diplomat can also include optional comments.
The ETS PPI Web-based Evaluation System
The ETS PPI web-based evaluation system offers a simple and convenient process to collect and report essential information about your personal attributes to round out your application to graduate or business school. Using the ETS PPI can help demonstrate your likelihood for success.
