Q: How are your assessments different from Intelligence Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ), or personality tests?
A: The most important difference is that myNalanda's assessmentss are done in the real-time environment in which your kids spend most of their time. IQ, EQ, or other personality tests are conducted in isolation and can at best indicate the potential your kid has. But these tests cannot tell if your kid is using and expressing this potential. Since, myNalanda's assessments are done in school environment, we assess students' potential and also assess if they could utilize their potential in school. This provides more realistic understanding of your kid's development.
Q: Some of the parameters you measure are also measured in school. How different is your assessment from that of school?
A: It is different at two levels.
At the first level, it is comprehensive which means that each of these parameters is measured by tests, teachers' feedback, parents' feedback, and activities. All of this is age and board appropriate and is designed by our panel of psychologists.
At the second level, findings of these parameters are mapped with the teachers' skills. This helps to take more informed decision on kid's development.
