The Interpersonal Intelligence Inventory has been revised and renamed the Teamwork Skills Inventory, 2009. It is now available electronically online at the Scholastic Testing Service Web site.

The Interpersonal Intelligence Inventory (III) is designed for use with adolescents (ages 10 to 20) and adults. More specifically, it is intended for administration to middle schools, high school, college, and university students working in cooperative learning teams.
To assist educators and learners with assessment, the Interpersonal Intelligence Inventory can:

(1) identify which teamwork skills are demonstrated by individuals;

(2) provide individual profiles of anonymous feedback from peers;

(3) compare peer observation of performance with self-impression;

(4) detect individual and groups learning deficits to guide instruction;

(5) credit conscientious learners for their initiatives and contributions;

(6) identify slackers who fail to carry out their share of the work; and

(7) yield an easily understood record of team skills for use in portfolios.

Learning to work in groups is essential for interdependence. Team skills can support cohesion and productivity as well as help members become successful and self-directed. In the workplace and in the classroom, peer and self evaluations are a highly effective means to establish accountability and improve team performance. The III provides the opportunity to identify those factors needed to attain lifelong goals for success.
