Get Performance Guide

A summary of the Get Performance Guide API operation available in the DNA API.

This API operation supplies the ­­Strengths, Struggles, and Performance Environment keys for a participant based on their Natural Behavior results. The values are provided in text strings and are connected to the top 2 strongest factors for a participant. 

We cover the performance guide results extensively in our knowledge base. To visit that article, click here. 

This endpoint is to retrieve the 13 DNA Insights (5 strengths, 3 struggles, 5 performance environment keys) for the designated language after an individual has completed the Natural Behavior discovery process. If successful, DNA will respond with the Performance Guide.
