Based on The Science of Motivation®, the Reiss School Motivation Profile® assesses 16 needs relevant to academic achievement, mindset, interpersonal relationships, and career interests.

The results identify possible motivational reasons for academic underachievement, thus enabling school professionals to plan effective interventions tailored to the student's individual needs. 

In addition to providing educators with the knowledge needed to devise successful strategies for promoting a positive mindset, the RSMP helps school counselors advise students about career paths that are likely to foster enduring happiness based on their intrinsic values.
