New functions in Radar projects

We have improved with new options the configuration of projects of Radar of Competences.

When creating a radar project you will see several new options on the project options screen

  • Weight of competences (existing): Allows to put weight to the competences that have an impact on the total final score of the person evaluated.
  • Who sets the target? (new): Now it is also possible to create projects without having a desired objective.
  • Are comments allowed? (new): Allows observers to put personal comments in their assessment of the questions.
  • Multiple levels? (existing): Allows observers to be differentiated by categories or levels
  • Identified levels (existing): Allows observers to be grouped by categories or levels or by number so that the levels are not identified.
  • Levels (existing): Choosing identified levels allows you to choose different levels, choosing unidentified levels allows you to choose the number of numbered levels
  • Weight by level? (new): Allows different weights to be given to the levels or categories of observers that affect the total final score of the person evaluated.

Now the Radar test can be rated at scores of 0.5 for greater accuracy in the rating.

In addition, when the project is configured so that the evaluated person also values the desired objective, we have incorporated a new type of questioning that has given a more accurate result in the studies and tests that we have carried out.

If this has been configured in the options, the observers will see a pencil icon that when clicking opens a window for entering comments on each question (this is indicated in the test instructions). The comments will be reflected on the last page of the report, identified only by their level.

In the report you will see a new page with indicators of the total valuation including the weighting of competences and levels of observers (if these options were activated).

New DISC Module Competences Health Area

Thanks to our LATAM team in the health area in collaboration with several hospitals and health entities we have developed, based on WHO recommendations, the DISC module of Health Area Competencies.

The module shows the valuation with respect to the NATURAL potential and the current approach (ADAPTATION) of the evaluated in key competencies of the health sector based on WHO recommendations. This assessment is NOT an assessment of your competence performance in each competence, but the NATURAL valuation represents your instinctive or natural potential to show or develop that competence more easily, i.e. your performance or development requires less additional effort. Your ADAPTED assessment represents where you are investing your energy or where you perceive that you should invest it for successful performance in that area.

Anything over 50% involves little effort, the higher the percentage, the lower the effort. Anything below 50% implies a little more effort, the lower the percentage, the greater the effort, but in no case does it limit how the person evaluated can develop or has developed those competencies if he or she has worked on them, since this is not what we assess.

Competencies are divided into two groups, the so-called “Patient Safety” competencies and the “Operational” competencies. When reviewing the competencies, they should look at those that are key to the position held by the person being assessed and ignore the rest.

Example of the module

New function group data Radars

We have the pleasure of presenting new functions for the management and group comparisons in the Radars of Competences.

With these features you can:

  • Download all project answers and data in excel
  • Generate and download a Radar group report comparing all the evaluated
  • Visualize a comparative table of self-evaluation of all the evaluated and download it in PDF or image format
  • Visualize a spider graph with the average value of the evaluated and download it in PDF or image format
  • To visualize a comparative graph of every evaluated with the average value of the others and to download it in PDF or image format

Now, within a Radar project you will see a button called “Group Data”

When clicking, a screen with 3 tabs is displayed: “Group Reports”; “Group table”; “Spider graphic”. Clicking it again you can close the view of tabs

  1. Tab “Group reports”: It is the default tab and allows two things.
  • Download all the project data in excel, including all the evaluations of all the tests
  • Download in PDF a group report that compares all those evaluated among them

2. Tab “Group table”: Display a table that compares the self-evaluations of all those evaluated in the project. It also has a button that allows you to download the table in PDF or PNG to be able to use it in presentations, documents, etc.

3. “Spider graph” tab: It shows a comparison of the average self-evaluations of the group, the average of observers; and the average of the set of both valuations. As in the previous case, it has a button that allows you to download the table in PDF or PNG in order to use it in presentations, documents, etc.

4. Individual comparison of evaluated: Next to the download button of the reports you will see a button called “Comparison”.

When clicking on the comparrision button, a comparative graph of the evaluated group will be displayed. If you click on any of the measurement labels, it will be hidden. As in the previous case, it has a button that allows you to download the table in PDF or PNG in order to use it in presentations, documents, etc.

New DISC Customer Service Module

The Customer Service Style DISC Module helps identify the characteristics of the evaluated when they have to serve or service customers. It is designed to take advantage of the strengths of their style and strengthen weaknesses, as well as help fit the right people in the right environment.

Type: Optional module to base report
Included in: DISC Professional
Pages: 3
Price: No cost

First page: Your style of Customer Service 

It is used both in recruitment and in development and training

Good customer service can make a difference in a company, it can be the reason why a customer stays with us or changes to the competition. It is demonstrated that a high percentage of customers that a company loses is due to poor or inadequate service. Knowing your style of customer service helps you give excellent assistance and improve customer retention.

This section is dynamic (according to the style of each evaluated)

It is divided into 6 sections:

  • Explanatory introduction
  • Name of the customer service style
  • Strengths of style
  • Weaknesses of style
  • Secondary styles
  • The environment in which this style best performs

Second page: Identifying the styles of the clients

It is mainly used is development and training

  • It is a guide that helps the person identify with what type of client he is dealing with. This section is static (does not change)

Third page: Customer Service Strategy

It is mainly used in development and training

  • Based on the evaluated Customer Service style, it helps him identify some basic strategies that you can follow when he has to service the clients. This section is dynamic (according to the style of each evaluated)

New function Export Group Radar’s Data

You can export all radar valuations to excel.

In any Competency Radar Project you will see a button called “Group Data”, when you click on it, a window will be displayed with the option to generate a report in excel.

The system will download an excel with those evaluated that have generated report.

New radar re-evaluation function

Now re-evaluating a Radar competencies is much easier…

A Competency Radar project can be re-evaluated twice at any time.

Before creating a re-evaluation of a project, you must take two things into account:

  1. In order to re-evaluate a project, it must be complete (all reports generated), otherwise the Re-evaluation button will not be activated.
  2. You must have credits enough (2 credits per evaluated to reevaluate). If you do not have enough credits you must acquire the number of credits required in the credit calculator.

To begin, open the project you want to re-evaluate. You can re-evaluate all the people or only some. Note that if you re-evaluate only some, the others that are not re-evaluated can no longer be re-evaluated, because once a re-evaluation of a project has been carried out, it can no longer be re-evaluated.

We select the people that we want to evaluate with the blue button on the left so that it changes to green (if you re-evaluate all of them, you can press the blue star button to select all people al the same time. Clicking on the re-evaluation button will create a project with the same name as the original but adding “First reevaluation (date).” All the assessed will have the same observers they had in the original project.You have to take into account the following:

  • The new reassessment project does not automatically send the invitations, this is done so that you can adjust the assessed and observers of this re-evaluation before invitations are issued. If you do not have to modify anything or have already done it, you will see that there is a button that says: “Send all the invitations”. By clicking directly on it, you will send both the invitations to the assessed and the observers (keep in mind that if there are people who have more than one invitation, because for example they evaluate several ones and at the same time they are evaluated, they will only receive one invitation, upon entering that invitation they will see all their pending tests).

How to vary data in re-evaluations.

Delete or add observers or add new assessed is always done once the reassessment project is created.

If, for example, we want to delete an observer (because he is no longer in the company), we must do it now in the reassessment project and before sending the invitations, press the “Observers” button to see the observers of a particular assessed , or click on the button “See all the observers” to display all the observers and delete them (keep in mind that an assessed person must have at least one observer.

We can also add observers, and even add new assessed (who obviously will not have past data in the report). To add a new assessed, we must expand the evaluations assigned to the project (see the section “Manage Assessed” point 4. Project edition, increase or decrease evaluations, at this tutorials. Note that a new evaluation has a cost of 5 credits and that you must have enough credits in advance.

What will the assessed and observers see in the new test?

In order to re-evaluate something, we have to be aware of the valuation we gave the first time. That is why in each re-evaluation the assessed and observers will see the valuation that they gave in the previous test, since the system marks in red said valuation. In this way, you can evaluate again with the previous reference.

How many re-evaluations can be made?

A project can be re-evaluated twice. The first re-evaluation will be done and will take the data from the original project, and that first re-evaluation project can be reevaluated once again in such a way that the data from the first re-evaluation will betaken. If in a first or second re-evaluation we have added a new assesseds, these and only these can be re-evaluated again up to a total of two times.

The second re-evaluation of a project works the same as the first.
