Event description


The Gallup StrengthsQuest assessment is used in many courses (and in the professional realm) at Mizzou, and in countless workplaces that Mizzou students will find themselves as employees upon graduation. This Reflection on Learning exercise allows students to utilize the StrengthsQuest assessment results in a step beyond coursework applications by taking a “deep dive” into how the findings from StrengthsQuest can affect personal and career development moving forward.

Technical notes: Students will first submit the results of their StrengthsQuest assessment (results must be less than five years old). Next, students will answer a series of questions designed to help them reflect and learn from those results. All students will complete the Strengths assesment as part of their BA coursework.


  • 20 PDP points earned for successful completionof this online experience
  • 90 minutes is the expected time commitment for successful completion.
  • Self Awareness, Value Differences | Competency/ies addressed in this professional development experience.
  • Students will have the entire session timeframe to complete the experience. Activities may becompleted all in one sitting, or students may choose to pace themselves with breaks betweenactivities. However, session start and end dates are immovable and non-negotiable. All activities,assignments and quizzes must be completed before the session close date and time.
  • The BA/PDP office is the organizer for this event. The timeline for processing PDP points and other event details will be as outlined in the PDP Programming Syllabus.

This session takes students beyond the foundational knowledge gained in the BA course series (BA 1500, BA 2500, BA 3500) and helps students prepare for BA 4500 internship course opportunities and the professional world beyond.


Students must meet the requirements for successful completion in order to receive PDP points. Successful completion of this PDP online experience will entail:

1) Uploading official Clifton StrengthsFinder (also referred to as CliftonStrengths or StrengthsQuest) assessment. NOTE: All Trulaske College of Business students will take this assessment as part of the BA1500 course. There is no need to pay for separately for a new assessment to be taken in order to complete this module.

a. Submission must be an official and valid Gallop® branded assessment taken with the last five years (the BA 1500 course assessment meets this criterion).

b. Must show both student name and top five strengths together on an official document from the assessment (an easily readable photo/image is OK as long as it is clear these are YOUR results).

2) Completing assignments to a satisfactory degree. This is a reflective learning assignment. The most important aspect of completion is to demonstrate true reflection and critical thinking. While perfect grammar is not necessary (and not as important as your original thoughts), you should be mindful to: Answer the questions that are asked (don’t ramble off subject!)

updated January 2018

(1) I want to take part in more than one event that begins on this date. Can I register for more than one?

Yes. However, online PDP opportunities can be more rigorous than students expect. Be sure to review the “Event Description” and “Requirements & Expectations” to be sure you are not overcommitting. Each event will require a separate reservation.

(2) Is there a penalty if I make a reservation and then do not take part in the online session?

This is called a “no-show.” As of the Spring 2018 semester, students may register just ONE time per event, per semester. If you make this reservation and do not particpate and meet the “Requirements & Expectations,” you will not be able to register again for this particular session until next semester.

(3) What happens if I do not meet the “Requirements & Expectations”?

Students who do not meet the criteria spelled out in the “Requirements & Expectations” section will receive no (zero) PDP points for this event. There are no partial PDP points awarded. In addition, if you do not successfully complete, you will need to wait until next semester to register again for this particular session.

(4) Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You may contact the Professional Development Program by phone at (573) 884-2007 or via e-mail at

(5) Can I make reservations for other people or give away my reservation?

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY WARNING: Any attempt to circumvent the PDP reservation system or secure a reservation for any reason outside of your own personal attendance for this event can be considered a violation of Academic Integrity, and is subject to consequences therein. RESERVATIONS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE for any reason.

(6) Can I make as many reservations as I want?

Yes! However, The Professional Development Program office reserves the right to cancel reservations by any student that is abusing the reservation system. Examples of reservation system abuse include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pervasive and systematic reservations beyond what is reasonable for the particular student in question
  • A pattern of “no-shows” at events that have been reserved
  • Any attempt to transfer reservations or profit from reservations made.
