How do I keep track of my codes/test takers?

You may also log in to your account to search, sort, filter, and export your up-to-date test code information from your Test Details screen at any time. Customers are responsible for tracking their own prepaid codes.
How do I administer tests?
Administering tests to others from your business account is very simple. Just pre-purchase the number of tests you require, and you will receive a spreadsheet containing one test code for each online test you purchased. Assign and distribute one code to each test taker. Test results are available immediately, and are emailed as a PDF to the test administrator, the test taker, or both, depending on your account settings.
A test taker simply goes to tests.enneagraminstitute.com, enters their code, enters their name and email address, and begins the test. We recommend about 40 minutes for the RHETI and 15 minutes for the IVQ to complete the test in one sitting. If a test taker does not complete the test and returns to the test later, they may enter do so by going back to tests.enneagraminstitute.com and entering the same test code and email address. We do not save answers, so they will need to begin again from the first question.
Who receives the test results?
You have three choices of who receives the test results PDF via email immediately upon completion of a test:
1) Test administrator only (default setting)
2) Test taker only
3) Both test administrator and test taker
You may change your results settings at any time from your Manage Account page. Changing your results settings applies immediately to any tests completed from that point forward. As the test administrator, you always have access to and may download your test takers' results from your Test Details page, regardless of your results settings.
What is included in the test results?
RHETI results come in PDF format and include a test taker’s scores for all nine types in a full-spectrum profile, as well as the Expanded Type Descriptions (of over 2,500 words each) for the top three scores. IVQ results come in PDF format and include a test taker's scores for all three Instincts, as well as general descriptions of the Instinctual Variants. Though knowledge of one's primary Enneagram type is not necessary and does not affect the IVQ score, those who choose to enter their primary Enneagram type receive brief bonus content specific to their type.
I used to have an account. Why doesn't my username/password work?
Account dashboards from prior versions of our website are no longer supported. Please create a new business account, or contact support if you have any questions.
Can I add multiple names/email address to the account?
For security purposes, our system only allows one test administrator and email address per business account. For organizations that require multiple people to have access to a business account, we recommend a creating a user-neutral email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) that multiple people may access.
