Often attempted using self-rating scales, it has long been a real challenge to accurately measure Communication and Interpersonal Skills (CIS), which are at the core of working with people, providing good care or services. This study proposes and evaluates an alternative CIS assessment scale that uses a series of scenario-based multiple-choice items to measure individuals’ actual reactions given a developing storyline. A set of three items are considered for each scenario, measuring (1) understanding (emotion perception), (2) empathy and (3) relational versatility levels. Study data including item scores and Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals will be collected from 10-20 college students. The relations between item scores and Alpha, Beta and Gamma activities (recorded while individuals processing their item responses) will be evaluated to test the hypothesis that the higher CIS scores would be more in alignment with the corresponding Alpha, Beta and Gamma activities. The findings will be summarized to discuss how EEG-based metrics can be used to study the reliability and validity of the alternative assessment modes in general. The initial results show that the proposed assessment mode and the experiments offer a promising outcome.

This study was supported by Gazi University School of Education and Grant [120K142] from the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TUBITAK).
