Scoring and Reporting
Two options for scoring and reporting the GFTA-3 are now available on Q-global.
- The first option is to pay per-report. Customers who administer the GFTA-3 only a few times each year, or those who want the flexibility to pay only as the assessment is used, may prefer this option.
- The second option is to select an "unlimited use" subscription, where one user of the GFTA-3 gets unlimited scoring and reporting for one year. This may be a better option for customers who administer the GFTA-3 several times each year—and don't want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.
Please note there is no onscreen administration included in the scoring subscription. Customers selecting this option must manually enter data in order for scores and reports to be generated.
- 24/7 secure, web-based access
- Portability: Q-global can be used on mobile devices such as a laptop or tablet
- On-demand, reliable scoring and comprehensive reporting solutions
- Pricing on a per-report basis
GFTA-3 Score Reports:
