The Thornhill system is designed to make it possible to conduct the entire feedback process online. This makes the process convenient, fast and far more affordable than a process which collects feedback on paper.
Note, however, that while our clients can generate reports online and download them onto any internet-connected computer, the reports are generated as Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files, ideal for printing. This allows the results of the feedback process to be easily read and actioned.
Here are examples of some of the stages of the Thornhill process:
The questionnaire administration process can be conducted entirely online, and requires only that raters have an internet connection and access to the Thornhill website.
If the email addresses of raters are known beforehand, we can contact them directly with a link to the questionnaire. Alternatively, we provide a customised link that can either be distributed by the person receiving feedback, to his/her intended raters, or used to add raters directly on the system, depending on the administration type required. The questionnaire link takes the raters directly to the start of the questionnaire administration process, and ensures full confidentiality throughout.
The entire questionnaire administration process can be branded to suit your organisation; the sample accessed using the below link uses the default Thornhill Associates branding.
The following link is to provide feedback to “Josephine Demo”, a participant in the “Fictional Leadership Programme”. Click on it to experience a sample questionnaire administration process, from the perspective of a typical rater. Note that, except for a few items, the actual question text has been removed. The instructional blurbs in the questionnaire are, of course, also entirely customisable. In addition not all question types are included in all questionnaires, but this sample should give you an idea of the options we offer.
Reports are provided as Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files for greatest portability and ease of printing. They can be generated in real time by our clients, from this site, using up-to-the-minute data.
The report below showcases some of the typical analysis that can be done on responses, including charts, comparison or ranking tables, the use of norms to allow comparison with other report recipients, and the aggregation of a number of questions into leadership competencies. There are, of course, countless other possibilities for report formats, depending on the intended use of the report.
Also note that in this sample report, the full text of most questions has been removed.
