Confidence and Validity:
Collecting valid and reliable data occurs when participants in projects have complete confidence in the privacy and confidentiality of the information they supply.
Moreover, when such standards are in place and always practiced, people do not get injured or hurt through the unauthorized disclosure of their personal and sometimes sensitive of information.
This is especially important in 360 degree assessments:
- MLQ Leadership Services insists on at least (and more if possible) participants in each sub-group other than the ‘level above’;
- MLQ Leadership Services requires the full informed written consent of any rater if in any 360 report there are less than three raters responding in a sub-group.
