What happens after you choose your DiSC product?

Administering and scoring the DiSC test
The process from purchase to receipt of finalized profiles differs a bit, depending on whether or not you're using an EPIC Administrator Account, and if you're ordering an online or paper product.

email sent from EPIC with profile codeEverything is completed online, but please call us if you have any questions.

  1. Place your order.
  2. Receive a confirmation of your order via e-mail. This will be sent to the email listed in your billing address, not your shipping address.
  3. Receive email from OnlineDisc.com with Access Code(s). (see image right) Please save this message.
  4. Send an email with the information shaded in gray to the person you want to take the assessment. (If you purchase multiple test codes you will receive an email for each test. In other words, if you purchase profiles for eleven people, you will receive eleven emails.) If you have a large number of people taking DiSC, we recommend purchasing an EPIC Account so you don't have to manage multiple emails.

  6. Once you've learned that they have taken their test, go to the site by clicking the link provided in the original email you received.

Additional notes about online tests

  • Access Codes are only sent to the billing email entered for purchaser. Codes are not sent to "ship to" emails.
  • Purchaser may forward email access codes to profile respondents. If you forward the access code to another person, you will NOT be notified of report completion nor automatically receive the completed report.
  • After you are sure the respondent has completed the profile, you can retrieve the completed report by clicking on the access code link in the original email. This leads to the completed report.
  • One email access code is issued for each test report ordered.
  • Access code emails will come from OnlineDisc@inscape-epic.com. If you didn't receive an email within 24 hours, please make sure to check your junk/spam folders. You might want to add this address to your trusted email list.
  • Respondents should set aside 10-15 minutes to complete the survey. The system will time-out after 20 minutes with no activity.
  • Access codes for non-EPIC users expire after 30 days.
  • If you need several reports, it's best to order them all at once.
  • Group reports must be ordered at the same time as the individual reports.
  • Email access codes are sent during business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.

Common questions from participants

How should I answer the questions? Should I think about myself in the workplace, in social situations or in general?

Many factors affect a person's profile results, and the response focus is most likely not a significant one. However, if you're administering the assessment in a work setting there's no harm in asking the respondent to answer questions with that setting in mind. Our environment (e.g., at work, at home, with friends) does play an important role in our understanding of DiSC. But it is much more an issue of how we apply insights gained from profiles, not how the profiles are constructed from respondents' answers.

Can my profile change over time?

In general, the average person's profile tends to stay fairly consistent over time. While small differences in results from one time to the next may occur, major shifts in style are unlikely. However, if it has been two years or more since someone last took the profile, we recommend taking it again to ensure the most accurate and up-to-date information. People who have taken the DiSC Classic and now have the opportunity to take an Everything DiSC assessment will appreciate the newer expanded and targeted profile report.

Is there a web page I can share with others that explains a little about my DiSC style?

You might want to share these pages with your participants. Many people like to share their results through social media.
