Everything DiSC is RESEARCH VALIDATED AND accurate
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. one of the leading publishing companies, were the first publisher of a DiSC assessment, now using twenty-first century technology, called adaptive testing, to deliver the highest levels of validity, reliability and accuracy ever achieved. Most variations of the DISC assessment on the market still use a flavor of the original 24-item, forced-choice questionnaire first developed by John Cleaver in the 1950’s.
Everything DiSC offers a complete and flexible solution EASIER TO USE AND TO REMEMBER
A Foundation of research, yet accessible to all
Wiley has been researching and analysing DiSC for over 40 years—in fact, Wiley’s DiSC® Classic Paper Profile was the first DiSC test and profile ever! Everything DiSC provides a trust-worthy assessment with strong psychometric properties. Wiley publishes an extensive research report about the sciences behind their adaptive testing methodology, as well as a research manual that details their research and development practices.
For instance, our newest addition to the product line, Everything DiSC Productive Conflict went through three full rounds of beta testing with more than 10,000 participants and 200 facilitators before it was ready for launch.
However sophisticated the tool, each profile report tells a story that the learner can easily connect with and take action, immediately putting the insights and strategies into practice. The story remains simple while offering rich content that learners can understand and remember. Many personality assessments are written for clinical, industrial, or organisational psychologists or for an academic audience.
The Everything DiSC assessment is written for a general audience using neutral language and in fact is written in the first person to the respondent.
Advanced Testing for increased accuracy
All DISC profiles are based on the same four dimensions or behavioral traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. However, most publishers of the DISC Model products have different questionnaires, even if some look similar. They all originate from the same 24 item, four words per item, forced choice questionnaire that was developed by Geier and Hendrickson in the 1960’s and revised in 1971. With modern advancements in psychometrics, this type of assessment is now outdated.
What sets the Everything DiSC family of tools apart is our current use of a five-point Likert response scale and our method of Adaptive Testing (AT), a computer-based iterative methodology that successively selects and presents subsequent questions based on a learner’s response to previous questions. Most importantly, this type of tailored testing increases the precision of the assessment instrument. Wiley was the first and continues to be one of the only assessment developers and publishers with DISC related tools on the market to use Adaptive Testing. With this technology, a person’s Everything DiSC profile is 32% more accurate than a traditional DiSC Classic profile.
EVERYTHING DiSC addresses the complete learning process
Each of Wiley’s Everything DiSC profile test is application-focused, so the feedback is presented to you as a leader, manager, individual contributor, or sales person. Each Everything DiSC profile is compatible with the next, meaning participants’ results can be shown across different applications without retaking the questionnaire.
Everything DiSC is an assessment instrument and in-depth profile report, and offers also many follow-up tools that take learners even deeper into understanding themselves and others. In addition, each comprehensive product package is completely customisable for classroom facilitation and includes additional learning platforms to keep the lessons from DiSC alive. For instance, profiles can be printed in sections to allow control over how much information participants receive at any one time. Even the name of the profiles can be relabelled to match the name of the program you are running.

ONGOING RESEARCH AND PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Most DISC providers continue to use two or three graphs to represent the learner’s assessment results, claiming that the first and second graphs measure adaptive and natural behavior. This is a myth. Years ago, when some of our data looked to point that way we believed this to be true. However, upon further data collection we discovered this explanation to be false, a finding backed by The British Psychological Society.
In the early 90s, The Society performed its own validation study on the 24-item DISC questionnaire and concluded that graph one and two were measuring nothing more than different views of self-perception. Current DISC providers who continue to make this assertion are working with outdated and unsupported facts.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are all the competitors' disc profiles the same?
Simply put, no. What is true is that they are all based on the same four dimensions or behavioural traits, namely Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance or Conscientiousness. However, most publishers of DiSC Model products have different questionnaires, even though some are very similar. They all originate from the same 24 item, four words per item, forced choice questionnaire that was developed by Geier and Hendrickson in the 1960’s and revised in 1971.
Most versions have since had word changes, and some have been adapted into phrases. The challenge is to find a validated, reliable profile. To date, only one supplier has published results of extensive validation and reliability studies since 1971. That is Wiley and we distribute their version of DiSC."
