Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the CliftonStrengths for Students report and CliftonStrengths for Students Access Code Retail Cards?

Each CliftonStrengths for Students report includes one access code that is delivered digitally, so you can redeem it immediately to take the assessment and get access to all your resources. The CliftonStrengths for Students Access Code Retail Cards are a set of 20 physical cards that are delivered by mail. Each card includes one unique access code.

Both products come with access codes that allow users to take the CliftonStrengths assessment and get the same personalized strengths resources designed for students. The main differences are the delivery method and quantity of codes.

Why does CliftonStrengths for Students report reveal only someone’s top five CliftonStrengths themes?

The CliftonStrengths assessment measures the presence of talents in 34 areas, or “themes.” The purpose of the CliftonStrengths for Students report is to introduce students to strengths by helping them discover their most dominant talents.

The CliftonStrengths for Students report reveals only the top five CliftonStrengths themes so students can focus on their dominant talents. Talents are the raw materials for strengths development, and the more dominant the talent, the greater the opportunity for growth.

How long does it take to complete the CliftonStrengths assessment?

The CliftonStrengths assessment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete on average.

Is the CliftonStrengths assessment timed?

Yes. The CliftonStrengths assessment asks users to choose between two paired statements. There are 177 total statement pairs. For each statement pair, the user has 20 seconds to respond. This time limit and their unfamiliarity with the statements ensure the assessment’s accuracy by reducing the likelihood that users will overthink their responses.

If users have a reading disability, you can call Gallup Customer Support at 1-888-486-9104 to have the assessment timer disabled.

Can someone retake the CliftonStrengths assessment? Will taking it more than once affect their results?

Gallup does not recommend taking the CliftonStrengths assessment more than once.

Our research confirms that someone’s first completion of the assessment yields the purest, most valid and most revealing information. The assessment measures the presence of talents by presenting the user with a pair of statements, then asking them to make a top-of-mind choice between the two. There is a 20-second time limit for each statement pair so users don’t overthink their responses, thus ensuring the accuracy of the assessment.

Gallup scientists have been studying strengths for more than 40 years, and they find that people’s talents do not change significantly throughout their adult lives. Retaking the CliftonStrengths assessment might reveal a different order for some themes, but typically, any changes would reflect a minor rearrangement of themes -- not a major shift in an individual’s talents.

Can the CliftonStrengths assessment reveal whether someone has the right major or is on the right career path?

Gallup designed the CliftonStrengths assessment for individual development. It is not intended to direct people toward specific professions, careers or areas of study. Although certain CliftonStrengths themes appear to be consistently dominant in certain professions, individuals do not need to have dominant talents in certain CliftonStrengths themes to be successful in a given profession.

During our research, Gallup discovered that many individuals can excel in the same profession but have very different top five themes. The best way for students to use CliftonStrengths for career guidance is to determine how to apply their unique CliftonStrengths profile to whatever role or profession they choose.
