Integrating idealDisc Assessment with Factorial

In this article you will discover how to integrate idealDisc.

What's idealDisc Assessment?

The DISC test is based on the model developed by psychologist William Marston for behavioral assessment. It classifies candidates on how they express emotions into the four behavior types of DISC:

- Dominance (D)

- Influence (I)

- Steadiness (S)

- Conscientiousness (C) 

This will be helpful to understand the candidates’ personality and behavioral traits.
