IP200 : INTEGRITY PROFILE
The IP200 is the Flagship of the dedicated Integrity tests that consists of 10 sub-structures of which each has 5 measuring areas. It is a very comprehensive, diagnostic and developmental instrument that provides the user with more than 60 scales to measure the complex concept of Integrity with, to provide feedback to testees, to make predictions on future behaviour and/or develop Integrity on an individualistic or corporate basis. It consists of 200 test-items, declares approximately 88% of the total variance and takes approximately an hour to administer and boasts Lie and Consistency as well as Unnatural Exaggeration factors. The test can either be completed in using the ‘pencil-and-paper’ or ‘on-screen’ approach, the scoring is completely computerised and the user has the choice to use an ‘on-line’ approach in the entire administrative process. The latter is applicable to all the INTEG-tests.
Measuring Areas – Scales: Ten Substructures of Integrity:
- Work Ethics
- Attitudes – Integrity Constraining
- Functional vs. Dysfunctional Behaviour
- Manipulative Abuse of Power – Non
- Transformation Commitment & Man Integrity
- Monitor, Lie, Consistency & Exaggeration
Purpose: Comprehensive Integrity Measure in the World of Work.
Five Measuring Areas (each of the ten Substructures consists of):
- Rolling out the Culture of Integrity
- Organisational Development
- Investigative Orientation
- Career Planning & Development
(A Training Module is Registered with the Service SETA in each Of the 10 Areas to Develop Integrity).
Reliability: Ranging from 0.84 to 0.92 (Significant.)
Validity: Ranging from 0.42 to 0.66 (Significant.)
Fairness (Norming Process): “Although the Standard Error of the Main and the Standard Error of Measurement were both calculated in all four variances of the above demographics, no significant results were obtained” and “The T-test to establish whether significant statistical differences exist, render ‘no significant differences’ at the lowest level – i.e. 0.001”.
Readability & Ease of Comprehension: “A maximum of sixth grade of the Fry Readability Graph was never exceeded” There is also no time restriction applicable to the completion of the test and there is always a trained ‘administrator’ available to allow testees to clear up any doubts they may have regarding the meaning of words or sentences.
The Seven Actions regarding ‘Readability’ (described earlier in this paper), were/are applied in the IP200.
GENERAL USE AND DECISION-MAKING RULES
The IP200 can be used at a grade 8 schooling level.
Consider a score of below a 6-sten on the Lie-Detector scale as a knock-out score.
The IP200 must be interpreted by a registered psychologist.
