Prevent the "weaponization" of the 360
The "360" most often protects respondents with assurances of confidentiality.
Consequently, many respondents use the assessment process to provide
exaggerated positive scores or exaggerated negative scores.
For most 360 administrations, it is difficult or even impossible
to detect sincere respondents from those with a hidden agenda.
The inter-correlation matrix allows for an examination of inter-rater reliability.
"Outliers" are identified with low correlations with the "Group Average."
Response Bias indicators indicate a sincere test taking attitude.
