In what format will I receive the data?
The data will be provided to you in stacked form. That is, each row in the data file will correspond to a different participant's or rater's data. As a simple example, for a data file with one participant and his/her 2 peers, 2 direct reports, and one boss, there would be 6 rows of data. Prior to conducting certain analyses (e.g., multiple regression), you will need to convert the data to a format where all data for each participant and his/her raters are contained within the same row.

Which instruments can be linked?

  • Benchmarks® & California Psychological Inventory 260 (from years 2004-2011)
  • Executive Dimensions® & Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (from years 2004-2012)

What needs to be in the proposal?

  • The purpose and merits of the research.
  • What data are being requested, including type of data (e.g., Benchmarks®), specifying relevant sections of each instrument for which data are requested (if applicable), and characteristics of the desired sample (e.g., age of the data, sample size, demographics).
  • How the data will be used, including the variables of interest and the proposed statistical analyses.
  • The names and titles of all those who will have access to the data, whether or not they are working directly with the data.
  • The credentials of the researcher(s) (including degree, institution, current affiliation, any relevant publications).
  • Contact information for the primary researcher (address, phone, and e-mail).
  • If you are a student, add a letter of support from your academic advisor, including his or her phone and email.
  • If you are interested in having CCL faculty collaborate with you on this project, please indicate so in your cover note. (We will let you know if there is someone whose research interests align with your proposed study.)
  • Please limit your proposal to 2-3 pages.

For a research project to be approved, it must have technical merit, be of interest to CCL, and be conceptually and methodologically sound. Approval decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Acceptance of the proposal will in no way limit CCL's ability to conduct future research in similar areas of inquiry.

How do I request data?
A researcher requests data by completing an online Data Extraction Request Form that includes the attached research proposal. The data extraction will not take place until the fully completed request form is completed and the attached research proposal reviewed and approved.

How long does the process take?
You will be notified of the status of your request by e-mail within 5 business days. Upon approval, data will be sent to you by email within 7 business days.

What can I expect to receive from CCL?
An SPSS or Excel data file, a sample of the questionnaire, and sample report.

How much does it cost?
There is a $250 charge for each time data is extracted per instrument.
