WHAT IS CONAT
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.
WHO CAN TAKE CONAT
CONAT™ is recommended for students of Grade 8 to 12. CONAT will be beneficial for all students who want to map their gifted intelligence and cognition and also those who want to define a learning strategy and take an informed decision about higher education.
CONAT™ removes guesswork, uncertainty and complexity as you approach important milestones in your academic goals and empowers you to make informed decisions, thus giving you a head start to design your life.
COGNALYSIS empowers the parent and child to make informed decisions regarding important aspects of the childs academics and higher education pathway.
3 steps to CONAT™
CONAT™ empowers parents to
Discover, Identify, Measure their child's innate Cognitive Abilities, Natural Strengths, Dominant Thinking Pattern and Learning Style.
CONAT gives the experience of
CONAT™ measures 16 Cognitive and Natural Ability Factors.
NATURAL LEARNING STRENGTHS
The awareness of these factors empowers the child as well as the parent to make more informed and integrated decisions about their child's future. It eliminates the need for guesswork with respect to the future.
Students get to design a custom learning strategy that is tailored to their learning styles and future goals.
Parents gain confidence in taking decisions towards creating a future for their child.
who took the pathway as per their Natural abilities and Cognitive capacities recommended by CONAT assessment turned out to be high performers in Grade 12 & 11

"What I found most interesting was how accurately the assessment captured my child. What his strengths are, areas where he needs work... I was absolutely amazed!"
Hiten Shah, Parent from New Jersey, USA
"It's a wonderful system. They were spot on and clear in their assessment. I can really see a pattern and can think of parenting my child in a different fashion, which will definitely help her, as well as all of us."
Upendra Naik, Parent from Navi Mumbai, Maharashtara

What is CONAT?CONAT is a 60 minute assessment to scientifically measure the Cognitive Abilities and Natural Learning Strengths of Students. The assessment numerically measures cognitive ability factors like Focus, Decision Making Ability, Creativity, Dynamic IQ termed as natural ingredients for success in life in general.
What is Cognition?Cognition is the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences and the senses. It is Cognition that allows us to solve the complicated problems or simply perceive the world around us and is the underlying mechanism behind literally everything we do in life including learning & academics.
What is Cognitive Science?Cognitive science is a broad interdisciplinary field that aims to understand - How the mind and the brain functions? - How does the brain store and access information? - How is the mind and brain related? - What exactly is the mind? - What is the co-relation between the physical brain and the intangible mind?
Why is Cognitive Science an Interdisciplinary field?Cognitive science seeks to reverse engineer some of the most complicated and poorly understood processes that occur in our head. To study and seek answers to such elusive and seemingly intangible questions, Cognitive Science collaborates with various fields of study which includes Philosophy: to formulate the right questions in order to guide any scientific pursuit of knowledge Anthropology: to understand the history and the present of human culture Psychology: to examine the manifestation of mental processes as behaviours Neuroscience: to understand the biological mechanism of the physical brain Computational Modelling: to understand and try to replicate the processes of the mind
What are Cognitive Abilities?Cognitive Ability factors are also called the natural ingredients of success. The important Cognitive Abilities are - Decision Making Ability - Focus & Concentration - Dynamic IQ - Cognitive Capactiy - Thinking Pattern - Learning Pace - Learning Type - Self Estimation levels
What is Multiple Intelligence Theory?The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. It suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on IQ. testing is far too limited. Instead, Dr. Gardner proposed eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. These intelligences are: - Linguistic - Logical-mathematical - Visual / Creative or Spatial - Bodily-Kinesthetic - Musical - Interpersonal - Intrapersonal - Naturalist
What is the importance of MI Theory in Education?Dr. Gardner says that our education system traditionally have their focus & most of their attention on linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence. We usually esteem the highly articulate or logical people around us. According to Dr. Gardner we should also place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in the other intelligences: the artists, architects, musicians, naturalists, designers, dancers, therapists, entrepreneurs, and others who enrich the world in which we live. It is important that children who have these gifts are given reinforcement in the education eco-system. Many of these kids, in fact, end up being labeled “learning disabled”, “ADD (attention deficit disorder,” or simply underachievers, when their unique ways of thinking and learning aren’t addressed by a heavily linguistic or logical-mathematical classroom. The theory of multiple intelligences created a major transformation in the education system since the advent of 21st century.
What is the Scientific Research behind CONAT Assessment?CONAT is developed based on years of research by our technology and research partner Centre For Research In Applied Cognitive Sciences. The research works are appreciated, accepted, published and presented at various top Indian and International Forums including Re-Imagine Education Forum, San Francisco, USA; ICARSS UK; Department of Psychology GNDU, India; International Journal of Indian Psychology and others.
What is the difference between CONAT and other Assessments?CONAT goes beyond Aptitude and Psychometric tests and includes measurements for core cognitive factors like Dynamic IQ, Decision Making Ability, Focus & Concentration, Dominant Thinking Pattern and Learning Pace. In addition to the core cognitive factors, CONAT also integrates numerical measures for Natural Learning Strengths based on Multiple intelligence theory.
How does CONAT differ from DMIT? (Fingerprint Test)DMIT is a psychometric analysis based on study of fingerprints which is majorly based on the premise that the fingerprints are constant and unique and hence can be mapped to the individuals multiple intelligences. However the core competency of an individual largely depends on the cognitive abilities which are fundamentally dynamic. In this context Jean Piaget’s theory suggests that Cognitive development occurs through the interaction of innate capacities and environmental events, and children pass through a series of stages. The sequences of the stages are universal across cultures and follow the same invariant (unchanging) order. All children go through the same stages in the same order (but not all at the same rate). Jean Piaget’s theory of cognitive development also suggests that intelligence changes as children grow
How do I take the CONAT Assessment?Once you register for the CONAT Assessment, you will receive a username and password. You can log in and take the CONAT Assessment Online on www.conat.org The duration of CONAT Assessment is 60 minutes.
What preparations are to be done for the CONAT Assessment?There are 180 questions to be answered in two sets. Student taking the test must allocate approx 75 minutes of free time CONAT Assessment needs to be completed in one sitting from start to finish. CONAT Assessment is to measure Cognitive Abilities and Natural Learning Strengths and is non academic in nature. No other preparation is required for CONAT Assessment
How can I interpret the CONAT Assessment Report?The CONAT Assessment report is self explanatory. Each element of the report is defined and explained at length. There are also case studies cited in the report to help you to interpret. If you need further guidance you can register for an online mentoring session with a certified CONAT Mentor at an additional cost. The duration of the mentoring session will be 60 minutes with student & the parent(s).
