Get a snapshot of how your students are doing spiritually by using the only scientific assessment tool that benchmarks against national norms.
An institutional report that provides actionable results to strengthen the impact of your spiritual formation programs.
A broad, scientifically validated assessment that provides done-for-you data collection and data file preparation.
An individual report that provides valuable insights and a personalized growth plan you can implement immediately.
The core of your mission is to help your students grow spiritually. In order to do that, you need a valid assessment tool that provides deep insight into how people grow. Most spiritual assessment tools lack theoretical depth and research validation, and don't provide actionable insights for both students and administrators.
Based on 20+ years of theory and research, the SpiritPulse and STI combine theoretical depth, scientific rigor, national benchmarks, and practical insights.
Integrating theology and contemporary psychology, the SpiritPulse and STI are both based on a relational spirituality model (The Connected Life) focusing on the transformative power of relationships with God, others, and spiritual community. Scientifically validated by over a decade of research, the STI provides practical insights for individuals and administrators seeking to improve spiritual formation programs.
Building on this model and research, the SpiritPulse provides a shorter assessment (5-7 minutes) that is very user-friendly for participants and substantially increases response rates. The institutional report provides a key driver analysis that serves as a clear road map for program improvement.

All 33 STI scales meet the highest standard of reliability as measured by Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient. STI Alpha coefficients range from .75 to .94, with a mean of .87, indicating a high degree of internal consistency according to scientific standards which set .70 as the minimum coefficient for “acceptable” reliability.
Over 10 years of research on the STI has demonstrated strong construct validity based on: 1) factor analysis procedures; 2) convergent and divergent validity based on correlations with numerous independent measures of spirituality, psychological well-being, and physical symptom; and 3) known groups validity based on discriminating between nominated spiritual exemplars and non-exemplars.
The SpiritPulse has demonstrated construct validity based on domain total scores predicting outcomes such as spiritual struggles, spiritual well-being and overall well-being.
