The Student Success Profile

What is the Student Success Profile, powered by the CPI 260® assessment?

Built upon rigorous validity and reliability measures, the CPI 260® assessment acts as the engine behind the VitaNavis Student Success Profile, a tool designed to uncover how a student’s strengths and competencies intersect with how they learn. The Student Success Profile enables students to assess, understand and maximize their strengths by comparing their results with data gathered from people and leaders who achieved their goals.

Why the CPI 260® Assessment?

The CPI 260 assessment is a shortened version of the California Psychological Inventory™ (CPI™) assessment, developed in the 1950s by Harrison Gough, which lead to the establishment of CPP, Inc., known today as The Myers-Briggs Company. The CPI 260 provides users with the opportunity to learn about their personal strengths and styles relative to others. Preserving the same reliability and validity measures as the CPI™, the CPI 260:

Improves recognition of high-potential individuals for leadership development

Increases individuals’ self-awareness

Enhances individuals’ leadership effectiveness

Increases individuals’ engagement

Improves succession planning

The importance and predictive nature of personality helps students better understand their patterns of interacting with the world and how those patterns intersect with how they learn. Available only through the VitaNavis platform, the Student Success Profile, powered by the CPI 260, is available in Spanish and easy to take through any mobile device.
