Getting Started with the ETS® Personal Potential Index (ETS® PPI)

It is easy for you to get started with the ETS® Personal Potential Index (ETS® PPI).

  • First, familiarize yourself with the ETS PPI and decide whether to require or recommend that applicants submit an ETS PPI Evaluation Report as part of the application process.
  • Next, determine how you will use the ETS PPI Evaluation Reports in the admissions process. Please consult the Guidelines for Interpreting ETS PPI Evaluation Reports.
  • Then decide whether you would like to receive the ETS PPI Evaluation Reports in paper format or electronically via Scorelink® Internet Delivery Service.
  • Finally, communicate your decision and let prospective applicants know that the ETS PPI Evaluation Report is required or recommended for admission.

If an institution or program currently receives GRE® scores, there is no further action needed in order to receive ETS PPI Evaluation Reports.

Otherwise, if you wish to receive ETS PPI Evaluation Reports, you can apply for a recipient code online.

To learn how your institution can use ETS PPI Evaluation Reports, view the ETS PPI Product Tour (Flash).
