Cambridge Personal Styles Questionnaire® (CPSQ) for students
Using your report
Welcome to the CPSQ Resource Page.
Your students will have received their CPSQ results and the resources on this page will help you to support them as they explore what this means. The first step is to help them to reflect on their results and decide on the area on which they would
like to focus first.
To do this, select the ‘First Steps’ button below which will give you the resources you will need to structure these first reflective tasks. After that, you can select whichever competency the students wish to work
on and the relevant resources will appear.
Select a competency by clicking the icon to see the support resources available, or search for a resource.

For this activity we would like you to really think about what your CPSQ report statements and scores mean. Note down your answers to the following questions:
Which competency areas are the most important for your studies?
How accurate is your feedback for these competencies?
Where are your personal style strengths (Positive points)?
Where are your areas for improvement?
Where are you doing okay (Neutral points), but perhaps could do better?
Do you want to build on your report and set personal goals?
How might you use this information to think about the development of your study skills?
Are there any barriers to getting this development?
Now read through your answers and reflect on them. If you can, do this with another student, or with your mentor, it can help. This video clip shows examples of some points to look for to have an effective Spark conversation about your report.
The Life Wheel is a useful tool to help to think about how we feel about different aspects of our lives. All the aspects listed are important for our happiness in life.
The activity is for your own personal use and reflection. It's a really good way of seeing how balanced things are for you right now. Sometimes seeing a visual representation of our lives can be helpful for spotting where there might be an issue,
perhaps that you are not even aware of.
Complete your own version of the Life Wheel.
Shade in the sections of the circle towards the middle to indicate how content you are with that aspect of your life. For example, if you are happy with your career, shade the section towards the centre. If you are happy with your family relationships,
and feel even more happy with them than your career, shade closer the the centre than for the career section. In the end you will have an snapshot of how you are feeling with all these aspects of your life.
Review and reflect on your shading. Think about the sections where you've said you're very content. Why is that? What about the areas that are you have shaded less? What is going on there?
Finally, think about your priorities. How can you shade more of the wheel? Which sections would you like to focus on? What actions could help you achieve that?
