The Through Eagles Eyes team uses tools which have passed the rigorous process of validation and discrimination testing for use in employment decisions. Profiles International® is a founding member of the Test Publishers Association® and has been providing assessments to business and industry since 1991. They conduct validation, reliability, and discrimination testing on an ongoing basis to insure the validation of the assessments. The Profiles XT® and the Profiles Sales Assessments® have constructs with the highest correlation of behavioral predictability within the assessment industry. These two assessments are used for selection, coaching, fit, developmental planning, succession planning, and several other methods for talent management. They measure cognitive, behavior, and career interest of candidates along with using a job match process to reduce turnover and insure the best job fit. The Profiles Sales Assessment adds additional critical sales constructs to insure sales teams have the right behavioral propensity such as money preference, prospecting, self-starting, and ability to close the sale.
These tools also include developmental assessments that are combined with many other tools we deliver in our consulting practice.

Our products measure the Total Person. Our PXT and PSA measure the three most important dimensions of human beings: thinking and reasoning, behavioral traits, and occupational interests. Our assessments are:
Designed for Business
Our products, while both reliable and valid, are specifically developed for business use. We do not attempt to take a general assessment and make it work in a business setting. Rather, we create each assessment so that it is relevant to businesses.
Available in Multiple Languages
Most of our products are translated into multiple languages and adapted by local experts to be culturally appropriate. We conduct localized validation and reliability studies to ensure accuracy and effectiveness.
Easily Customized Job Match Patterns
Our assessments have the functionality to create job match patterns that are customized to fit your company and its corporate culture. Job match patterns are used to ensure the people you hire will have many of the same job-related attributes as your proven performers.
We provide our clients with their own virtual Profiles Assessment Center (PAC) on the Internet. This means you have a virtual recruiting office, employment office, and HR functions available to you from anywhere in the world.
Step One Survey II® (SOSII)The SOSII is a brief pre-hire assessment that measures an individual's basic work-related values. It is used primarily as a screening tool early in the candidate selection process.
This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant's work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes toward theft — including property, data and time.
The ProfileXT (PXT) assessment measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization. The "job matching" feature of the PXT is unique, and it enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to successfully perform in a specific job. It is used throughout the employee life cycle for selection, on-boarding, managing, and strategic workforce planning.
This assessment reveals consistent, in-depth, objective insight into an individual's thinking and reasoning style, relevant behavioral traits, occupational interests, and match to specific jobs in your organization. It helps your managers interview and select people who have the highest probability of being successful in a role, and provides practical recommendations for coaching them to maximum performance. It also gives your organization consistent language and metrics to support strategic workforce and succession planning, talent management and reorganization efforts.
Profiles Sales Assessment™ (PSA)
The Profiles Sales Assessment (PSA) measures how well a person fits specific sales jobs in your organization. It is used primarily for selecting, on-boarding and managing sales people and account managers.
The "job modeling" feature of the PSA is unique, and can be customized by company, sales position, department, manager, geography, or any combination of these factors. This enables you to evaluate an individual relative to the qualities required to perform successfully in a specific sales job in your organization. It also predicts on-the-job performance in seven critical sales behaviors: prospecting, call reluctance, closing the sale, self-starting, teamwork, building and maintaining relationships, and compensation preference.
Profiles Skills Tests (PST)Profiles International provides comprehensive assessments to measure essential knowledge and skills. We use powerful technologies, such as performance-based testing, which simulates popular software products like Microsoft Office, to ensure accurate, reliable, assessment of knowledge, skills, and abilities. Our skills assessments cover Software Skills, Clerical Skills, Call Center Skills, Accounting and Finance, Medical, Nursing, Legal, Industrial, Computer Literacy, Retail, Food Services, Information Technology, Staffing, and Human Resources.

Profiles Performance Indicator™ (PPI)The Profiles Performance Indicator (PPI) is a DISC-type assessment that reveals aspects of an individual's personality that could impact his fit with his manager, coworkers and team, and his job performance. It is used primarily for motivating and coaching employees, and resolving conflict and performance issues post hire.
The PPI specifically measures an individual's motivational intensity and behaviors related to productivity, quality orientation, initiative, teamwork, and problem solving, as well as responses to conflict, stress and change. The output from this assessment serves as an "operator's manual" for an employee, and helps managers better motivate, coach, and communicate with the employee. It also helps to predict and minimize conflict among co-workers, and provides crucial information to improve team selection and performance.
A powerful feature of the PPI is the Team Analysis Report, designed to help managers form new teams, reduce team conflict, improve team communication, improve their ability to anticipate problems and enhance their team leadership skills.
It helps evaluate overall team balance, strengths and weaknesses, as well as team members' personality characteristics along 12 key factors: control, composure, social influence, analytical, patience, results orientation, precision, expressiveness, ambition, teamwork, positive expectancy and quality of work. It also provides team leaders with practical recommendations and action steps to take in order to succeed in their jobs.
Profiles Loyalty Pro™ (PLP)
Profiles Loyalty Pro™ is a web-based customer loyalty surveying tool. Loyalty, as determined through the "voice of the customer", is a leading indicator that predicts the "staying power" of an account.
Profiles LoyaltyPro™ offers companies a tool to gather ongoing, critical account intelligence that helps to assess the relationship between the buyer and the supplier, ultimately driving the action plan to improve customer service. Having insight into your customer's perception of your relationship allows you to steer the strategic business efforts and initiatives of the account management teams to continually improve customer relationships and build a network of loyal customers.
The CheckPoint Management System is a 360-degree assessment. It is used primarily to evaluate the effectiveness of your managers. This assessment combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. This process highlights a manager's job performance in eight skill clusters: leadership, communication, personal development, development of others, production, task management, relationships, and adaptability.
The CheckPoint 360 helps managers identify and prioritize their own development opportunities. And, it helps the organization to better focus management training and development investments, proactively uncover misaligned priorities between senior executives and front-line managers, and surface management issues that could lead to low employee productivity, morale, satisfaction, and turnover.

People typically don't quit their companies, they quit their bosses. Profiles Managerial Fit (PMF) measures critical aspects of compatibility between a manager and their employees. This report offers an in-depth look at one's approach to learning, as well as six critical dimensions of compatibility with their manager: self-assurance, conformity, optimism, decisiveness, self-reliance, and objectivity.
