MAPP focuses on motivation. MAPP does not determine whether you can or cannot perform in a job, rather indicates if you will perform. Motivation is what drives an individual from the inside. It cannot be learned or taught, this is just who you are. Therefore, our goal is to aid you in identifying your motivations and learning how to use them to be successful in your career and life plan.
While reading your appraisal concentrate on the Motivation Levels 1-5. The Motivation Level determines your motivation toward the given area listed. If you have a lower motivation level this does not mean you cannot do that task, it simply means you would rather not.
MAPP is a fully integrated, computer-aided vocational assessment system capable of matching people with jobs. It can assist you with hiring, promoting, career MAPPing, succession planning, work team development, outplacement and conducting job searches.
MAPP does the following:
Backed by forty years of ongoing development and success, MAPP is now available in six languages (English, French, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish).

As you review your appraisal note that the numbers presented on the right side of the worker traits have specific meaning.

The left column is a set of computer reference codes. They are there for coding purposes. The column to the right of the traits is the raw score. This is used to determine the level of motivation you have for each characteristic. The column of numbers at the far right indicates the motivation level you have for that particular trait. There are five levels of motivation:
Think of these as energy traits that are on a continuum, from positive to negative. Traits with 1’s and 2’s are on the positive end of the energy spectrum indicating that you are highly motivated to use these traits, and 4’s and 5’s on the negative end.
Keep in mind that because a trait is at level 4 or 5 does not mean you cannot perform tasks related to that particular trait. It simply means you do not desire to perform those tasks regularly.
