Please print & read this page carefully. (If you are a school student please do so with your parent or guardian)
As part of our Career Guidance programme I would like to invite you to do a personal development questionnaire called the MIDAS. You do it on your computer at home, privately and you will get the results during the interview session.
Please note this is not a psychological assessment of your intelligence. It measures your understanding of your strengths/talents/interests – your intellectual disposition.
All you have to do is Log in, read the instructions and proceed. It requires Basic Computer Skills and most people seem to complete it in 30-40 minutes. It is important that you have no distractions. You will need to take it in one sitting.
(school student please ensure your parent or guardian is with you in case you need help)
N.B. When logging-in use UPPER-case lettering only.
- Type in your unique Account ID, this is X (which will have been sent to you by email)
- Type in the Password which is your surname (do NOT include an apostrophe or space in your surname e.g. O’Casey should by typed; OCASEY)
- Type in the Org Code, this is JC15 (the first two are letters & last two are numbers)
- When you have logged in please make any corrections, add any missing details and ensure you select the appropriate ‘assessment type’ for your age group.
You will then be given full instructions on the questionnaire.
Please try to avoid using the ‘I don’t know’ option if possible – if it is used too much it may make the results unreliable. At the end of each section you will be offered the chance to review your responses. If you are happy with your initial responses then you can just scroll down and click ‘proceed’ to start the next section.
Please complete it before your appointment and preferably when you’re relaxed & alert.
It is important that the answer to each question comes from you. Ensure your answers are true to your feelings.
(N.B. school students – your parent/guardian should be at hand just to help explain some of the questions if necessary)
When you are finished you can log off. The Multiple Intelligences profile will be presented to you during your interview. Your right to confidentiality means that along with us only you will have access to your profile/data (if you are a young person it will also be shared with your parent/guardian).
Please contact me if you have any problems. I hope you enjoy the MIDAS and look forward to meeting you.
