Most schools over-survey their students and end up with inaccurate results they never use. Using an innovative methodology, the SpiritPulse takes just 5-7 minutes, increasing response rates (by 2-3X), and the accuracy of the overall results.
Students love it because it's brief, intuitive and can be taken on their smart phone in just a few minutes. Administrators love it because the easy-to-understand report provides an immediate and clear road map for improving spiritual formation programs. This is a report you’ll actually use!
Because it’s so brief, you can administer SpiritPulse more frequently to track trends and the impact of program improvements.
The SpiritPulse group report gives you a snapshot of where your students are on their spiritual journey. You get meaningful evidence on the impact of your spiritual formation programs in 34 areas.
Our four-quadrant graph with two dimensions - relevance and spiritual health - provides an intuitive picture of students' strengths and growth areas, and the impact of your programs. This provides a clear road map to improve your spiritual formation programs.
With tangible results, tracking and reporting program improvements to accrediting agencies has never been easier.

The SpiritPulse is a next generation spiritual assessment that combines a brief user-friendly survey for participants with actionable results for program administrators. Instead of using long scales with likert-scale items, we ask participants how they are doing in a certain domain, and then which areas of that domain that are going well or not so well.
Our algorithms then compute a score for each area that factors in both spiritual health and relevance. The results for each domain are portrayed in an intuitive four-quadrant graph showing how each area scored on the two dimensions of spiritual health (X-axis) and relevance (Y-axis). By identifying the quadrant in which an area is located, you get a high-level score that provides a clear road map for program improvement.
Areas in the top-left quadrant are labeled "Prioritize" because students as a whole are indicating that these areas are highly relevant and also relatively unhealthy. Areas in the top-right quadrant are labeled “Celebrate” as they are both highly relevant and spiritually healthy. The bottom-right quadrant, “Maintain,” displays areas that are healthy but not as relevant to students. These areas need to be maintained and even leveraged as opportunities. Areas in the bottom-left quadrant are labeled “Review” as they are relatively unhealthy but not as relevant to students. With the clarity of these results, you'll be able to take immediate action on the results.
The SpiritPulse has demonstrated construct validity based on domain total scores correlating with outcomes such as spiritual struggles, spiritual well-being and overall well-being.
