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. A powerful, web-based admissions tool, the 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, evaluators can provide their assessment of an applicant's personal attributes — enabling applicants to then share this feedback quickly and easily with multiple institutions.
