GLOBAL NORMS CREATION
THE ABCDS OF NORM CREATION
A.
B.
C.
D.
Endogenous factors (e.g., age, gender)
Exogenous factors (e.g., country, occupation)
Examination factors (e.g., online)
Temporal factors (e.g., administration dates)
Norm Types:
1. The Standardization Norm
2. The User Norm
Bartram, 2008

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE – A GLOBAL
CONSTRUCT
• Consistently high reliability and validity
– Across world regions, gender and age
• Culture-free by design
• Some differences exist in subscales
• However, these differences may not be practically
significant
– Influence of sample size
– Actual scores are not largely different from each other
HIGH RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY
EXAMPLE – NORTH AMERICA AND ASIA
Individual From North America
Assertiveness = 119
Individual From Asia
Assertiveness = 114
GUIDELINES AND EXAMPLES
WHEN WOULD I USE A GLOBAL NORM?
• Consider the following criteria:
– The regional location/country in which the assessment is being
taken
– The culture of the participant
– The location and culture of the comparison group of
assessments (if any)
– The applicability of a globally representative norm
– The applicability of the closest/most similar regional norm
– The potential buy-in of the client or organization when
comparing assessment scores against the chosen norm
EXAMPLES OF GLOBAL NORM USE
• Comparing leaders in an international organization
– e.g., comparing Latin American leaders to European leaders
• Selecting individuals from one region to work in another
– e.g., from Asia to work in Africa
• Using a common baseline for all users allows for accurate
comparison and development
• Removes concern over applicability of norm
DEBRIEFING RESULTS ACROSS CULTURES
• As EI is a global construct:
• Focus on the culture of the work environment
• Understand how the regional culture fits within the global
framework but do not focus on it
• Understand the client’s perception and knowledge of
norms
• Be prepared to discuss subscale differences across
regions (and age and gender)
SUMMARY
• The Global Norms allow EQ-i 2.0 results to be
interpreted in a broader manner
– Region: Small overall; small differences on most
subscales; moderate on some
– Age: Small to moderate effects
– Gender: No effect for Total EI; small effects at subscale
level
• Emotional Intelligence is a global construct
WHERE TO GO FROM HERE?
• No additional cost above generating a report
– Unless changing the norm on an already generated report
• Can be used with:
– Workplace
– Leadership
– Group
• Norm Region: Global
• Global Norm supplement on portal
• Help files updated
