ParentIQ Specialized Tests

Educational Testing

Learning styles analysis logo
The Learning Styles Analysis Test (LSA) and The College Major Interest Test (CoMIT) are made available to parents at a discount through ParentIQ to help optimize a childís educational success.
Everyone can learn, but everyone learns differently. Studies have shown that each person has a unique learning style. For example, one person can be an analytic thinker whereas another person may be a reflective thinker - this is but one facet of the multi-faceted spectrum that makes up an individual learning style. The type of learning style a person has can directly impact their academic performance, and in turn, their day-to-day activities and motivations.
The Learning Styles Analysis Test assesses a range of 25 different Learning Dimensions. The implications of knowing this information are wide and far-reaching in terms of enhancing study skills, problem-solving strategies, and improving academic and overall achievement.

Comit logo
A college education is an expensive purchase, and selecting a course of study that will result in a rewarding and fulfilling career can be critical. A wrong decision or uncertain path can be costly in terms of both time and money. Itís crucial that students are prepared to enter college ready to take full advantage of their experience.
The College Major Interest Test (CoMIT) helps students select and prioritize majors that match their own interests. Students who know in advance where their interests lie are less likely to change majors in mid-stream, or worse, find that their chosen field is unfulfilling after graduation.
