Based on years of development and success, we provide a unique online assessment that seeks to guide, motivate and empower people to achieve their greatest educational and career potential.

More than 7 million people have taken the MAPP assessment that we utilize. MAPP has gone through extensive validity and reliability studies and is used by jobseekers, companies, schools, workforce centers and coaches.

MAPP Reliability and Validity

The outcome of the Reliability Study has proven MAPP to be an accurate tool for identifying an individual’s motivations. However, the real test is allowing each individual to self-validate the MAPP by taking the assessment and reviewing their own appraisal.

Through a Construct Validity Study with the MAPP and the Strong we have found the predicted occupational matches to range from .50-.92 with a median correlation of .67. This is particularly noteworthy.

All three of the reliability coefficients indicate that MAPP is highly consistent over time and shows great stability in test responses. While .50 is an acceptable reliability coefficient for true score variability, the MAPP instrument exceeds standards with coefficients of .95, .90, and .71.

Motivation and De-Motivation Assessment

Also, the results can provide an assessment of BOTH: what it is that really motivates an individual, and also what it is that truly de-motivates an individual.

  • Over 7,000,000 people have taken the MAPP in the past 8 years.
  • Over 3,000 schools have used the MAPP in their career development departments.
  • The Assessment is considered valid for those students 13 years old and over.
  • Over 500 companies use the MAPP in their career and vocational development function.
  • Over 1,500 coaches currently use MAPP in their daily coaching practice.
