The Bar-On MMP3 (Bar-On Multifactor Measure of Performance / version 3.0) is a questionnaire, which was created by Bar-On Test Developers and designed to study, measure and strengthen the most robust contributors to human performance.
You are asked to respond as openly and accurately as possible to 142 items, which are in the form of brief sentences. It typically takes about half an hour to complete this questionnaire.
Think how each item applies to you, or might apply to you, even though some of the items may not relate to you directly or at all. Following each sentence, you are presented with a slider-bar to indicate the degree to which the item or question applies to you ranging from 0% to 100%
- A response of 0-25% indicates that the item never or very rarely applies to you.
- A response of 25-50% indicates that the item rarely or sometimes applies to you.
- A response of around 50% indicates that the item sometimes applies to you.
- A response of 50-75% indicates that the item sometimes or often applies to you.
- A response of 75-100% indicates that the item very often or always applies to you.
Please indicate the response that best applies to you, or might apply to you, most of the time and in most situations. Indicate the way you are and not the way you wish to be. Some sentences are similar but were intentionally designed for scoring and assessment purposes. Also, a few questions do not appear to be performance-related but were included to test response accuracy.
It is important to note that by agreeing to complete the Bar-On MMP3 you have given your voluntary consent to do so. Additionally, your responses and results will not be shared with a third party.
