Sentinels For Christ :: Discipleship Assessment

How The Discipleship Assessment Tool (DAT) Works

Through a series of 75 questions the DAT tests the individuals behavoirs and beliefs cooresponding to the Christian Faith. The test should be taking in one sitting without spending to much time on one question.  Do not try and answer as you would like to be, but how you actually are at the present time in relation to the question.   Each question allows five responses in which you agree with the belief or behavoir in part or not in the following format:

  • Disagree
  • Partly Disagree
  • I'm not sure
  • Partly Agree
  • Agree  

If you are unsure of how you feel about the belief or behavoir or it is simply non-applicable to your situation, select "I'm not sure." Once you've completed your assessment a comprehensive report will ve sent to your email for you to view and use for spiritual formation or general answers. 

First we need some personal information. Email allows us to send you your test results. Your information is confidential.
