The Everything DiSC Difference

What are the differences between the DiSC assessments offered by Wiley and those offered by other publishers?

There are several DiSC publishers that have created DiSC programs.  Each of those publishers started with the same DiSC theory based on William Moulton Marsten’s original work at Columbia University.  Over time, however, the publishers have invested varied amounts of research and focus on deepening their understanding of DiSC theory, what it means in “real-world” applications, and how to present it to the world in useful, meaningful assessments and reports.

“Everything DiSC is the first behavioral assessment of its kind to implement adaptive testing, Everything DiSC’s adaptive testing ‘treatment’ is an innovation in the field as well as a real value-add for our customers.”

The original DiSC publisher, Performax Learning, evolved into Inscape Publishing. which evolved into the DiSC Classic and Everything DiSC assessments offered by Wiley & Sons Publishing.  Everything DiSC has the most experience and deepest commitment to researching and developing cutting-edge DiSC tools that go “from assessment to action.”  Everything DiSC continues to evolve a better understanding and application of DiSC.  With the Everything DiSC line of assessments, each application was researched and then the researchers asked “does this fit with DiSC, and if so, how?”  They didn’t try to force-fit DiSC into applications. They built assessments applications that are statistically reliable and valid that add to the body of knowledge for both DiSC and the applicable research application areas.  The Everything DiSC circumplex model, which now uses an adaptive testing approach, provides the most highly personalized, customized and accurate DiSC assessments on the market.  They don’t just represent one’s style as “D” “I” “S” or “C.”  They clearly demonstrate that all people are a blend of styles and that our natural behavioral tendencies generate priorities that exhibit our inherent strengths, motivations and fears while guiding and informing our actions.

Users of Wiley's Everything DiSC and DiSC Classic system not only learn about their own DiSC style, they also learn about others’ DiSC styles and how to capitalize on these natural behavioral tendencies in specific application areas including sales, management, leadership and the workplace overall.  People don’t just learn a theory or get an out-dated representation of their DiSC tendencies. They get specific insight to improve their relationships and results immediately.

Wiley brand Everything DiSC, leading provider of assessment-driven classroom learning solutions, uses adaptive testing, an interactive assessment process that tailors questions based on an individual’s item responses. Researched and developed for decades in the context of achievement testing and intelligence quotient (IQ) scoring, Wiley's Everything DiSC implementation of the adaptive testing measurement better aligns with standards established by the psychological assessment community.

Each Everything DiSC Workplace, Sales, Work of Leaders, and Management Profile comes with a free MyEverythingDiSC.com personalized site for the participant. They will be directed to create an account in MyEverythingDiSC.com; then view interactive modules on their personalized results. They will also be introduced to the DiSC Theory and History of DiSC in the "Learn about DiSC" section. Finally, they will be able to experience the application of DiSC with the Everything DiSC Comparison Report Invitation System. This allows them the option to invite and accept invitations to free, unlimited Everything DiSC One-to-One Comparison Reports. The Comparison Reports pull from the two participant's individual results, allowing them to see six behaviors on a continuum scale. Four of the behaviors are those they are least alike. Two of the six behaviors are the most alike. They then have reflection and work pages to discuss and explore their results. This simple exercise allows them to see their co-worker's behavior in a deeper, more rounded version; offering a new view on understanding "where that person is coming from."

 Once a few Comparison Reports are completed for the team, the system will generate group maps for the participant to undertand a group's individual and group DiSC culture.
