Welcome to this page with the SASQ Diagnostic Questionnaire

SASQ – DIAGNOSTIC QUESTIONNAIRE INSTRUCTIONS

Introduction:
The Diagnostic Questionnaire you are about to complete is the result of more than 40 years’ research. When you have finished, it will be analysed by an independent organisation – Foresight Assessment Systems. You will have been sent this link in order to complete this as part of:
A pre-employment assessment process
The pre-work for a learning and development programme
A personal coaching development programme
An annual review process, or some other purpose e.g. franchisee assessment
It is also used as part of a team survey in the context of developing the concepts of “positive psychology”

Your responses to the questions will not be used by anyone other than personnel at Foresight Assessment Systems
Pre-employment: While the organisation that requested the report will receive an overall report, no information on your specific answers will be provided
Annual Review: You will receive your personal diagnostic report in accordance with the procedures agreed with your employer
Learning and Development and Coaching: You will receive your personal profile report during the event.

Our role here at Foresight Assessment Systems is to provide this service to both organizations and individuals. Foresight will process your completed questionnaire and provide a report to the appropriate manager at the organization requesting the assessment or to the individual client.

The accuracy of your SASQ results depend on how carefully you follow the instructions below. We ask you to read them carefully.

The questionnaire takes15 minutes to complete.

Answer every question.

The questionnaire will present you with 12 different situations. Read each situation and VIVIDLY imagine it happening to you. For each situation you will be asked to type the major cause (reason) of this event happening to you. Use the space provided to type a brief answer. For each situation, you will be asked three questions about the cause. You must check the number that best describes your response.
