Q: My dissertation topic requires that I survey my participants regarding emotional intelligence. I would like to know if it’s possible to use the ECI 360 test (or part of it).
A: The emotional intelligence assessment that I co-designed with Richard Boyatzis and the HayGroup is the Emotional and Social Competence Inventory, or ESCI-360. An earlier version was called the ECI-360; a version called the ECI-U is designed for college students. The ESCI-360 was designed for use in EI-based leadership development programs, but it and the ECI-U is also available at no charge for use in academic research. However, you must get approval from Ginny.Flynn@HayGroup.com.
