MSCEIT Users Manual
Developed by academics at Yale and the University of New Hampshire in cooperation with MHS, the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT™) evaluates Emotional Intelligence (EI) through a series of objective and impersonal questions. It tests the respondent’s ability to perceive, use, understand, and regulate emotions. Based on scenarios typical of everyday life, the MSCEIT measures how well people perform tasks and solve emotional problems, rather than having them provide their own subjective assessment of their emotional skills.
The MSCEIT test uses a variety of interesting and creative tasks to measure a person’s capacity for reasoning with emotional information by directly testing their ability. This performance-based approach makes the MSCEIT test ideal for situations where respondents may want to create a positive impression or ‘fake good.’ The MSCEIT is suitable for all manner of corporate, educational, research, and therapeutic settings.
- Performance-based assessment measures applied understanding of Emotional Intelligence
- Easy to use online scoring and administration for automatic and immediate results
- Decrease method bias in respondents’ scores by utilizing a variety of tasks to assess EI
