Scoring the TEIQue
Important notice: Any commercial or quasi-commercial usage of the materials or systems in this website is strictly prohibited and illegal. We are now soliciting donations to support the maintenance of the website and the work of the lab, more generally. We suggest a donation of £49.99 for usage and/or scoring of the TEIQue and a donation of £29.99 for usage and/or scoring of the TEIQue-SF. Please do not “grab and run” – make a donation according to your means and taking into account the insight, expertise, and effort that has gone into developing the materials and services that we are providing to you. You will find the donation button (“Support KVP lab”) in the banner of the main page (www.psychometriclab.com).
TEIQue and TEIQue-SF
It is now possible to score your TEIQue datasets (TEIQue and TEIQue-SF) automatically on-line. The scoring engine is located at the bottom of the website. Below, you will find detailed directions for using it. Follow these directions very carefully to avoid mis-scoring your data. Please do not email us with requests for additional directions unless absolutely necessary.
How to use the TEIQue scoring engine:
1. Download the appropriate Excel file (TEIQue or TEIQue-SF). You must use the system’s Excel template to enter your data, rather than create your own.
2. Enter your data into the template.
- You must ensure that your dataset does not have missing values or data entry errors.
- All TEIQue responses must range between 1 and 7. No other numbers or decimals are allowed.
- The scoring engine does not handle missing values. Any missing values should be replaced with the middle value 4, except for cases where more than 15% of the values are missing. We recommend that such cases be dropped from the file. Alternatively, if you use missing value imputation procedures, ensure that they do not introduce decimals to the file.
3. Once you have processed your file correctly upload it to the scoring engine, which will produce a fully scored Excel file, including the Cronbach alphas for all TEIQue variables.
4. If you experience any problems with the scoring engine, please report them in the comments. Please note that this is solely to help us monitor the engine. It is unlikely that we will respond to individual queries if the engine is working correctly.
The TEIQue 360° has to be scored at our end. Enter your data into the SPSS template here and email the file to this address.
The TEIQue 360°-SF can be scored according to the scoring key of the TEIQue-SF, which can be accessed from here.
The TEIQue 360°-FB provides direct ratings on the 15 trait EI facets, so it does not require a scoring key, except if you’d also like to group the facets into the four trait EI factors (Well-being, Self-control, Emotionality, and Sociability) in which case, please follow the key below. You can derive a total score on the TEIQue 360°-FB simply by summing up the ratings on the 15 facets and dividing by 15.
Welbeing = (hap+opt+est)/3 .
Self-control = (con+imp+str)/3 .
Emotionality = (emp+per+exp+rel)/4 .
Sociability = (man+ass+soc)/3 .
Other TEIQue forms
At present, all other TEIQue forms will have to be scored at our end. If you are using a form that cannot be scored on-line, please email here for directions. Please note that we do not score single-case files nor do we provide feedback reports or access to norms free of charge. Also note that we will only score a single file per project. We will only score batches of additional responses, pilots, late questionnaires, for a fee.
We are fixing all broken links. Please retry soon.
Hi, alphas in scoring sheet all amount o 0 as their coding is set as =0
You are doing something wrong – double-check
I am facing same problem as Steve as alphas in scoring sheet all amount to 0 as their coding is set as =0. Please help in how to rectify it.
Hello, this is an Excel issue. You need to click “Enable editing in Excel”
I have clicked enable editing on excel and am still not getting any alpha values for the TRIQue-SF. I don’t understand how I could be incorrectly entering the data. HELP!
It is called the TEIQue-SF. I hope your data entry is free of such errors.
The link for the instruction on scoring is not working
Works OK at our end. Please recheck.
How would you score a group of 16 people? Do you have to do this individually?
No, you do not need to do score individually.
Link works – thank you.
I’m afraid we cannot provide such support. Please follow scoring instructions carefully and, if necessary, request support from your organization’s statistician/psychometrician.
Hello. Where can I find the Excel template for the short form? I can’t seem to find the orange box that is referenced in the instructions.
Please check at the bottom of the website. The box is no longer orange after the website upgrade, so we will fix this asap. Thank you.
I have tried uploading the Short Form results. But it keeps ending in an error.
Most likely, you have errors in your data entry. Please check the instructions again carefully.
To whom it concerns,
I wanted to ask I saw that when is the time, we have to download the excel form and attached it at the end of the page, that it says calculate.
However, I have two questions, firstly the scale is from 1 Completely Disagree to 7 Completely Agree, all the other number have no labelled and I worried that my participants will not be able to distinguish what the other numbers mean in terms of a variation of the statements. So what should be done for that? Can I label for example 2= Disagree?
Also, after the engine have calculated my results will I be able to make inferences about low or high trait EI? I will use the 30 questions instead of the long version because I have a lot of participants and it will be hard for them to reply to all.
How will I know which response stands for which facets and if they had a low or high trait?
It’s up to you to label the Likert scale if you wish. We have never found it necessary in our research. With respect to your other question, please check the FAQ.
Hello. the blue box at the bottom of the website does not work. I would like to score a TEIQue full form file
Perhaps this was a connection issue. Please try again and it should work fine.
I can’t seem to find the scoring excel file at the bottom of the website for the TEIQue-SF?
You need to download it by clicking on the relevant button. Please check and try again. Thank you.
Question #78 on the TEIQue reads “take” a decision, and I believe should read “make” a decision?
Thank you. It is ‘take’, which is as good as ‘make’.
How do I know under which Facet any of the questions fall on?
This information is not publicly available.
Hello, im indonesian university student and i want to research about Trait Emotional Intelligence for my essay to get my bachelor degree. But i cannot find the full scale about TEUIQue-SF. Where can i find the TEIQue-SF?
Please check through the website as we do not provide specific links. Thank you.
As part of a research I would need to know which items of the TEIQue-SF correspond to the self-control factor. Against payment could I have access to this information?
Please check the scoring key. Thank you.
Please give me clarification. The TEIQue SF 360 can only be scored by you. I downloaded the template. What application do I need to use to open it?
Thank you for your assistance.
I believe this should be a Microsoft Word file. I’m not sure why you have difficutly opening it.
I believe Microsoft Word. If not, please provide link to check. Thank you.
Hello I can’t seem open the file for the teique-sf?
Which file is that? Please provide link.
I have 137 participants for the survey. But I could not get the result. This is what is the error message “This site can’t be reachedold.psychometriclab.com took too long to respond.” Thanks.
Engine is working correctly. Double-check your data and try again.
Emily C. Reso
The TEIQue-SF scoring link is not working!
Which link is that? Please send it so we can check.
I have the same issue. The scoring link is not working:
“The TEIQue 360°-SF can be scored according to the scoring key of the TEIQue-SF here”
When I press “here” to help me download scoring key, it doesn’t work.
Thank you. It has now been fixed. Any broken links, please forward the relevant URL or surrounding text directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello. I found an article in which a table showed 9 facets for EI of children whereas there are 15 for adults (table in the same article). so if I use the Adolescent short-form, are those 30 questions based on the 9 facets or the 15 facets?
I will be grateful for your response.
The TEIQue-ASF is based on the sampling domain of trait EI in adults.
I am trying to use the Scoring Engine but an application error occurred.
Try again! Καλή τύχη, Κωνσταντίνος
Is there any mean value of Teique-SF? for the low, moderate and high levels of EI.
We do not provide guidance beyond what is already on the website. Access to norms is available for a fee. Also see the FAQ at http://psychometriclab.com/faq/
I wish to get my TeiQue ASF scored.
How to proceed with the same?
Read the website Sir.
I am using the Teque-sf for my dissertation and wondered if there were any resources you could point me to in order to help me decipher the data once i’ve collected it?
We do not provide guidance beyond what is already on the website. Access to norms is available for a fee.
Vanessa Alberti Takiguchi
I would like to know how much is the fee for rules on TEIQue Short Form or TEIQue Short Form 360º? And how should I download over excel? I can’t see excel available on the website.
Thank you Vanessa Alberti Takiguchi
For questions regarding quotes/charges, please contact email@example.com. Thank you.
To whom it may concern,
I am currently scoring the short form of teique and I have calculated the factor scores of the teique sf. But I don’t really understand what the following mean and so I can’t proceed with the scoring `var lab tot_tei ‘global trait emotional intelligence’.
/VARIABLES= tei_5 tei_20 tei_9 tei_24 tei_12 tei_27
I would really appreciate your help.
Please contact the statistician/psychometrician in your organization for guidance.
first of all thank you for your work.
I have tried to score my-own TEIQue (153 form -.xlsx file), but alphas in scoring sheet (.xls file) are all = 0.
I have checked each entered score (as number without decimals): there are no mistakes or missing values.
Further, maybe it could help knowing that scores of the single scales are reported with “.” (e.g., 3.5) as decimal separator, while alpha’s scores with “,” (e.g., 0,00).
I have, also, tried to open files both in Mac and in Windows.
Thank you veru much
Thank you for your kind words. You may need to send in your dataset. We will be happy to have a look.
I am unsure what I am doing wrong as the alpha scores keep coming back as 0. I have checked my data many times, ensured that enable editing has been selected on excel. What else could be the issue? Please help.
I don’t know. You need to send in your dataset.
Do we have to reverse the score on certain questions before inputting them into Excel sheet?
No you do not. The scoring engines reverse-scores automatically.
thank you for you work.
I’m trying to calculate score of the full form, but the scoring file does not show Alphas (i.e., they are all =0,00)
Moreover, some cells result text-formatted, while some number-formatted.
Thank you for your help
You need to enable Editing in Excel OR you have data entry errors OR you are trying to obtain alphas for a single or a very small number of cases.
Hi. I have downloaded the 153 form and inputted my data. I have tried uploading the file to calculate the result, and I get the following message: Server Error in ‘/’ Application.
Specified named range ‘Infinity’ does not exist in the current workbook. Can you assist?
Double-check your data entry.
Good Evening ,
May I know is the link working? I tried uploading my TEIQue SF data into the search engine. However, an error of connection timed out was given to me several times. I tried it several times before and checked for errors in my data file. Hope to hear from the admins soon!
This has now been fixed.
I get this message when after pressing the calculate results button: Server Error in ‘/’ Application.Could not load file or assembly ‘LinqToExcel’ or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
Check the data entered and I have nothing invalid.
Your collaboration please.
Because we had a problem with the server, which was swiftly fixed.
Once I uploaded the template with scores, I can receive the result documents automatically. Is the I data uploaded will be stored somewhere in the server? If this is true, how can I make sure these personal data (participant’s EI score) is confidential?
The scoring engine does not accept or record participant names. May I remind you that the engine is to be used exclusively for academic research purposes.
Hi, once I uploaded the template file for scoring, is the data in the file will be stored somewhere in the server at the cloud?
You will get the results back immediately. Try and see.
First, I ’d like to thank you for providing TEIQue instruments for free as well as usable instructions. In my case, the TEIQue-SF 360º is suitable for my postgraduate diploma thesis on Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Transformational Leadership (TL).
I read that all TEIQue responses must range between 1 and 7. I was wondering, if I use a 5-degree scale instead of a 7-degree, will that affect reliability or validity of the test once I run the data on SPSS?
I’m wondering since I need to combine two measuring instruments (one for EI and one for TL) into one and the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire of Avolio & Bass (2004) which I ’m using for TL has a 5-degree scale.
Thank you for any support might be possible.
“I read that all TEIQue responses must range between 1 and 7. I was wondering, if I use a 5-degree scale instead of a 7-degree, will that affect reliability or validity of the test once I run the data on SPSS?”
Yes, it might affect them, so please use the original response scale as given. You should be able to combine instruments with different response scales very easily.
I would like to know what are the scores we get when we send the spss file ? Distribution of the scores for each factor ? Can you compare pre and post scores to see if a training was helpful for participants?
They are raw (non-normed) scores. Yes, you can compare them in pre/post designs
Hi, can I send you two tests and you will analyze them and send me the results or how does it work? And if yes, how much is it? Thank you!
Please check out http://www.teique.com
Gratitude for access to such good material. I would love to make a donation but would want some more time to be able to. Apologies for this.
Thank you for your kind words and support
Thank you for providing this wonderful research resource. I just processed my TEIQue-SF and my results spreadsheet has an extra row of data (in other words, my data spreadsheet has 99 observations and my results spreadsheet has 100 rows of EI data). Does this indicate a problem?
You need to download the right template for the version of the TEIQue you have used (TEIQue or TEIQue-SF)
I tried entering scores using your Exsel sheet for the SF (30 item) and got this message. Please advise if it is an error on my part or if it is server error . Thank you.
Server Error in ‘/’ Application.
Parse error near char 1 ‘∞’ in specified formula ‘-∞’. Expected cell ref or constant literal
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: NPOI.SS.Formula.FormulaParseException: Parse error near char 1 ‘∞’ in specified formula ‘-∞’. Expected cell ref or constant literal
Please follow the instructions at http://psychometriclab.com/scoring-the-teique/ and double-check your data for data entry errors.
Hope you keeping well. Thank you for all these resources. They are very useful!
I am doing a test review for educational purposes and I just wanted to find out the cut-off points for the 153 item TEIQue. What constitutes a high score, average score and low score? How do I know whether a persons score means that they have high trait EI etc? I am trying to look at scores from a criterion-referenced point of view.
Please check the FAQ at http://psychometriclab.com/faq/
Do I need to upload two separate Excel files for the TEIQue 360? One file for the target individual and one file for those evaluating the target individual?
Try the system and see how it works. Thanky you.
Before I upload my results (form 30) to calculate the score, do I need to modify reverse items according to:
Scoring key: Reverse-score the following items and then sum up all responses
16, 2, 18, 4, 5, 7, 22, 8, 10, 25, 26, 12, 13, 28, 14
or is it included in the process of the automatic calculation?
You do not need to reverse-score as the engine does this for you.
I calculated the scores from TEIQue-ASF (30 items) using your engine. There are five columns in the excel that represent well-being, self-control, emotionality, sociability, and total.. so I’m just wondering, is the ‘total’ column there is the Global Trait EI?
Yes it is
Good luck and thank you
i have uploaded my data to the template given. next step is upload it to scoring engine. where is scoring engine?
Bottom of site
Alexandra C Pfleging
I am not able to get my results. I have added the data to the excel spreadsheet, but when I upload it, I get an error message.
Most likely data entry error. Engine online and working correctly
I can’t find the excel file to put in my data.
Where can I find this?
You need to download from the scoring engine. Please read and follow the instructions.
i have a 130 sample doing the 153 questions for research use. how can i calculate their results ?
Please check the information on the website and message boards. Thank you.
I uploaded the file with my dataset but when I click on “Calculate Result”, I also get a 404 error page. 🙁 Is there anything I can do?
Most likely a data entry error – please retry following all instructions very carefully because the slightest error can crash the engine.
I’m getting the same error message as Naddine above. I’ve checked and there no issues with the dataset I’m using (it’s a very small dataset) – no blank cells, all steps have been followed correctly. I’ve also tried downloading the scoring engine again and have also tried using a separate laptop but no matter what I do, I still get the same error message (404). If you have any suggestions as to what the issue might be, that would be great.
Thank you 🙂
Because of upgrading site security – now fixed. Thank you
Hi, it seems my comment has been removed before publishing, so I am not sure if the Admin read it. To reiterate, I am experiencing the same issue as naddine luci. After some testing, the 404 page still occurs even with one row of data in the exact format you provide down below for TEIQUE-SF. Once again, it has no missing data, no values outside of range 1-7, no name changes in the columns nor the file itself.
Now, I am not sure why my comment has been deleted, but I hope this helps and that it can be fixed soon. Thank you in advance!
Because of upgrading site security – now fixed. Thank you. Any more problems, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello, I have been having trouble with the TEIQue Scoring feature. I have attempted multiple times over the past week using different files and have been unable to get past the “404 error” page. The system has worked for me in the past without issue. Please advise.
Because of upgrading site security – now fixed. Thank you
Big Fan and I love your responses 🙂
I’ll cut to the chase, I’m doing a Thesis on EI and Employee Engagement, the College uses SPSS software and I’m no way IT, do I need SPSS ? Second and final question, I can’t see Global Trait score on my excel file, it only gives results of 4 and a Total…(is the total = to Global Trait or am I total stupid).
Again big time fan
Total is global.
Thank you and good luck
Thank you for this valuable resources.
If I am using the TEIsf, how can I know which questions corresponds to specific facets?
Also, after getting the results, it will give me the score of each facet?
Please check carefully the information on the website. We do not provide additional information other than what is on the website.
Thank you and good luck
I can’t find the Excel file (TEIQue or TEIQue-SF) in this page?
Could you help please?
Please look harder. Thank you.
hi! i’m currently in high school conducting a study on EI 🙂 would it be possible to know the type of statistical analysis or method incorporated in the scoring engine? this is for research paper purposes 🙂
Check the scoring key for the TEIQue-SF which is available on the website
What does Alpha value signifies in the result sheet?
I have entered one data set for the short form and similarly to other peoples comments I have no alpha scores 0.00 I have entered this several times with the same outcome. Can I do this manually and what are the cut off scores for indicating low and high scores for individuals.
Have you requested advice from your organization’s statistician or psychometrician?
Thanks for your previous answer..No.1 fan here.
RE: TEIQue – SF Do the online calculations via the footer of the website give the median or mode.
Again sorry for the silly question I’m new to Chp 3. Methodology and it’s breaking my heart.
Thanks..again love your work 🙂
Thank you for your kind words. The engine does not calculate median or mode information, but you can take the Excel file and calculate any statistics you wish at your end. Good luck
Marta Valle Romeu
Hello. Is it possible to compare the scores on each facet or factor of the short forms in different participants? For example, to see if those participants who score high on the Well-Being factor also score high (or low) in Emotionality. And the same with every factor or facet. In case it is possiblem, has it been done before? In what studies?
Yes it’s possible – through a repeated-measures design.
I am currently working on my dissertation related to trait EI and I am in need of the scoring process for the TEIQue – SF. I have read through the website multiple times and I have been unable to find it. I was also wondering if there was a way to determine which questions connected with which factors.
Please check under “Obtaining the TEIQue” and “Scoring the TEIQue”
I am using TEIQue-Short Form, I am confued how many subscales does it have four (Well-being, Self-control, Emotionality and Sociability) if so then what are the ranges of them? Plz tell
or the subscales are 15 facets?
Please read carefully all the information on the website and your confusion will be cleared up. Thank you.
From where can I download the TEIQue-SF excel template? It is not visible on this page. The SPSS template is available for TEIQue 360 and not TEIQue-SF.
From the engine at the bottom of the website: “Download 30 Form”
Hello. The link that leads to the scoring of TEIQue 360°-SF doesn’t work. Clicking on the link leads nowhere. Please help
Now fixed. Thank you.
Hey, I just have a question. What will happen if I only give participants 6 possible responses instead of 7 (I’ve heard that this is better because it prevents participants from choosing the neutral 4) ? Would it negatively or positively affect the validity and reliability of the results ? I’m a senior university student doing a graduation thesis on the effects of a certain university course on students’ trait EI. Thank you so much for making this available to the public.
Please use the designated 7-point Likert scale as we cannot support such customizations.
the link to score TEIQue SF is not working really need help regarding this.
Please provide said link, so we can check it. Everything seems to be working fine at our end.
We have repeatedly requested that website users finding broken links report them to email@example.com *pasting into the email the link concerned*. Thank you.
I tried to access to the SPSS template for entering data, but I couldn’t open. Can you check the links ? Thank u so much. U have done a great job ^^
Working OK at our end. Please retry.
Good day! I’d like to ask if the scoring engine is still available for use at your end. Thank you very much for the instructions!
Yes, it is available. Thank you.
Hi! Excel template scoring link is not working.
Please provide exact link so we can test. Thank you.
Whenever I upload the “TEIQue-dataentry” or “TEIQue-SF-dataentry” file to the bottom of the page, the corresponding “results” file displays the following error in the excel file:
“Server Error in ‘/’ Application.
The resource cannot be found.
Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Could it be related to protective view somehow? The “dataentry” files I download are all in ‘protected view’?
This happens usually because there is a data entry error in the EXCEL file you are trying to upload. If you have double-checked and you are still getting the error, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org *attaching the relevant EXCEL file*. Thank you.
Hello. Does the scoring engine also work for the TEIQue-ASF? I read a comment that made it seem so, but I am not sure, from what I’ve read on the site. Thanks.
Yes, it does. Thank you.
Sir I am student and conducting my research on the relationship between grit, self efficacy and emotional intelligence among university students. I have put data in excel sheet that you have provided, as I have other variables and i had already put data of those variables in spss now how should I enter this scored data into spss?
To score the TEIQue through the engine, please follow the instructions on the website.
Greetings, Could I get help with scoring of TEIQue-CSF
There are instructions regarding the child forms on the website.
Hi Professor. I don’t understand why my alpha score is 0.09. I used the TEIQue30 before and had no problem. Can you help?
I wish I knew Zee. I suspect errors in the data entry. Never seen such an alpha in 20+ years worldwide.
Hello, I have already published two days ago a request, but this seems to have been deleted therefore again my message. I have entered data from a survey into the excel sheet in the course of my master thesis and also received the corresponding solutions. First question: I have added the given items by hand and divided them by 6 according to the scoring instructions for the subscale well being, for example, and I have also taken the recodes into account. After this procedure, however, other numbers come out, as indicated in the solutions in excel. The deviations are sometimes larger, sometimes smaller. How do these deviations occur and which numbers are correct? Second question: For teique total, the four subscales (which contain only 26 items) are added together in excel and then divided by four. In the instructions, however, it says that the items 1 to 30 should be added up and then divided by 30. Again, the question is which method or which numbers are correct in the end. I would be very grateful for an answer.
First question: You should have divided by 7 not 6.
Second question: Four items feed directly into the global trait EI score without going through any of the four factors.
Hello there i keep getting error codes when trying to upload my TEIQUE-SF data can you help me
This was due to having EXCEL variables designated as non-numeric (string). Please make sure you follow all the instructions carefully before complaining about the scoring engine. Thank you.
Hello, these two facets feed directly into the global trait EI score without going through any of the factors. Thank you.
Hello. May I know how to determine whether a score is considered “high” or “low”, i.e., is there a sort of cutoff score?
Please check FAQ at https://psychometriclab.com/faq/
Hi I am looking to use the TEIQUE for my dissertation. Is it possible to get 1 composite score ?
Please check FAQ at https://psychometriclab.com/faq/
I have tried to use the scoring system on both my work computer and my phone and they both flag the link as being harmful and won’t let me proceed. Is there any reason for this?
Scoring engine still hosted on old weboste, but works just fine. Everything will eventually be intergrated into one website.
Hi do I need to use your website to do the calculation? This might not be GDPR compliant/data protection for my research. Does the TEIQUE manual teach you how to calculate / interpret results? Can the manual be used instead of uploading data via your website which does not appear to be secure?
For scoring options, see: https://psychometriclab.com/scoring-the-teique For max security, you can email us your data for scoring for which however, there is a fee.
Prasanth Kumar Kakarla
In the TEI QUe- SF, for the 30 items, can you provide the segregated list of which 2 items for each of the 15 facets make the 4 factors.
The short form does not yield scores on the 15 TEIQue facets.
Good luck and respects to Mother India.
I downloaded the scoring sheet and got the results back with the alpha. Is the scoring on a scale of 1-7 with 7 being a high emotional intelligence? Or do I need to do something else with these numbers? When I read your website and downloaded the scoring sheet, it seemed like that was just the directions to score the EI exam manually not how to interpret the results.
So what do these numbers in each section mean? 1= low EI? 7= high EI?
Please check FAQ at https://psychometriclab.com/faq/
Hi..How i will doing the scoring of TEIQUE-SF . How we categorized low and high EI of participants. please help me.
