This format is easy to use and very manageable from a time and content perspective for intro psych students. I will use it as a pre-class exercise. With something tangible in hand it opens up a myriad of opportunities for in-class activities that are self-reflective. I have not used it yet, but I play to in 5 weeks when we address personality. Great resource!

The personality test acted as a great tool for understanding the Big Five Factor Model. It was very self- explanatory and the test included a wide range of questions to cover each factor. The learner can fully engage in the activity because it offers a first-hand experience with a test that many psychologists use as a reference regarding personality differences. A very popular and somewhat difficult concept at times was portrayed in a manner that students can use and find intriguing. While the test was well-rounded, I would have provided more introduction information about personality and the Big Five Factor Model. I also found some of the questions to irrelevant. In addition, I would have liked the results to go more in-depth about each factor and explain to each student what their results symbolized.

This learning object is a great assessment tool and introduction to personality in Introductory Psychology. I have used it in my classroom for several semesters and students always enjoy it. I have students bring in their printed results and group the class up into the factor that they scored the highest on. Following this I ask all the groups to plan a vacation that they would go on with their group (with the came personality trait that all of them scored highest on). They can go anywhere, do anything, bring anyone, and so on. It is neat to then go around to the groups and see if the vacation plans correlate with the personality factor for that group.
