What is the EI Assessment?

The EQ-i 2.0 is completed by all applicants who are invited to interview with the program. The assessment is composed of 133 statements, and you rate each using a 5-point Likert scale. The EQ-i 2.0 will measure a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we:

1. perceive and express ourselves,

2. develop and maintain social relationships,

3. cope with challenges, and

4. use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

The EQ-i 2.0 model of emotional intelligence is comprised of fifteen factors across five categories of functioning. These skills, which form the building blocks of abilities such as communication, resilience, and time management, can be mapped theoretically and empirically to job competencies, productivity, academic performance, and other measures of success to help predict and improve functioning.

How can I prepare for the EI Assessment?

There is no way to prepare for the assessment. The assessment should be completed in one sitting and answers provided should be honest and truthful. It should take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete the assessment.

Can I register for the EI test now on my own?

No, registration is not required. Applicant names and email addresses are entered into the system and the link is emailed directly to your personal email. When you take the assessment, you will be asked to provide your age and gender. That is all the information required. Once you complete and submit the assessment, no other actions are required.
