"Anything that can be measured, can be improved."
Michael Dell, Founder and CEO of Dell Inc.
CONAT™ is an accurate, reliable and scientifically validated assessment. It measures the entire thinking process, mental abilities like dynamic IQ, focus, decision making ability, study pattern, natural strengths & learning nature.
Students of Grades
8 to 12
The student takes the CONAT assessment, and is measured on various parameters of cognition and learning such as Dynamic IQ, Decision Making Ability, Focus Factor and Natural Learning Strengths.
Understand the space in which the student exists, their learning capacities, learning methods, learning styles, learning pace, thinking pattern etc.
Discover new ways, methods and strategies for the student to absorb information and find a new spirit in learning; where his interests lie and what will be the suitable path for higher education.
CONAT™ measures a Students' ability to learn, adapt, solve problems, and follow instructions.
The Student Cognition Analytics derived from CONAT™ helps to determine the following:
HOW QUICKLY CAN A STUDENT LEARN NEW CONCEPTS?
CAN THE STUDENT THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX?
CAN THE STUDENT UNDERSTAND PROBLEM NEEDS?
IS THE STUDENT ABLE TO COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS TO NEW PROBLEMS?
CAN THE STUDENT OFFER NEW IDEAS?
These are all very valuable insights to know about a Student called as Higher Order Thinking Skills.
Parameters of CONAT™:
DYNAMIC INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT
Dynamic Intelligence Quotient measures the students reasoning ability; How they use information and logic to a given situation, problem and make inferences. Identifying and measuring DIQ showcases one's reasoning skills, long term and short term memory.
DECISION MAKING ABILITY
Decision Making Ability is a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration; it is an act of or need for making up one's mind. It is one of the most important factors for any aspect of life.
Focus Factor is defined as the ability to focus on something particular, in this case, learning. It is the ability of the student to use his reasoning and logic and inferences for a given situation or problem.
Cognitive Capacity is the overall efficiency of your brain. Higher the CC, better is the efficiency to store, process and retrieve information. It can be understood as learner's efficiency
Self Estimation is the ability & capacity of a person to take up that task which depends on his estimation regarding oneself.
DOMINANT THINKING PATTERN
As we all know, the thinking process has both logical and creative capabilities. Some tend to think more logical than creative, while others have creative as dominant thinking. An awareness of dominant thinking pattern empowers the student for designing learning strategies and the educator to fine tune to unique learning needs of students.
NATURAL LEARNING STRENGTHS
Natural Learning Strength are the unique ways or abilities that a student has to learn and acquires information. Awareness of these core strengths gives access to create personalised learning strategies. There are 8 factors - Kinesthetic, Logical, Musical, Linguistic, Intra Personal, Inter Personal, Naturalistic & Visual and Creative.
From Defining the Self to Creating the Future
The path that the CONAT Assessment takes is to define the present state of the student first, understand the parameters in which they are distinct, and then designing a roadmap with those parameters, thus creating a future using that roadmap.
Learning & Development
The Foundation of CONAT™
CONAT has been created in collaboration with Centre for Research in Applied Cognitive Sciences, a research and development organisation in the field of Cognitive Science, Psychology and Education.
CONAT is based on the theories of Howard Gardner (Multiple Intelligence Theory), Jean Piaget (Theory of Cognitive Development) and Cognitive Science, Education Technology Application.
Theory of Cognitive Development
Theoretical, Hypothetical and Counterfactual Thinking
Abstract and Logical Reasoning
Strategy and Planning becomes possible
Concepts learned in one context can be applied to another
Multiple Intelligence Theory
Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory is applied in CONAT, and CONAT is able to quantify the child's intelligence into 8 distinct parameters:
Education Technology Application
who took the pathway as per their Natural abilities and Cognitive capacities recommended by the assessment turned out to be high performers in Grade 11 & 12
