For the students upto class III-VII.
What is Multiple Intelligence?
In simple words, Multiple Intelligence theory states that we all are intelligent in more than one way. The theory of Multiple Intelligence was Ist proposed by Howard Gardner, an American Educator at Harvard University.
This theory describes the different ways students learn and acquire information. Gardner stated that there are eight types of Intelligence. Our intelligence ranges from the use of words, numbers, pictures and music, to the importance of social interactions, introspection, physical movement and being in tune with nature.
So, now if the teachers and the parents are made aware of the type(s)of intelligence of a child at a young age ,dont you think our children will emerge as more confident and happy beings !!
TYPES OF MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE
Over The Period Nine Types Of Intelligences Have Been Recognised Under MI Theory
The nine intelligences in the MI Theory are :
- Verbal Linguistic,
- Visual Spatial,
- Interpersonal -social
- Intrapersonal -self
The names are self-explanatory to understand the quality of an individual regarding his/her learning ability. In other words, these intelligences are the comfort zones of individual’s basic instincts for learning things of interests. Every individual has a certain combination of these nine qualities differing with intensities of intelligences. People are good at certain professions according to their mix of intelligences.
What is the Multiple Intelligence Test (MIT)?
Multiple Intelligence Test (MIT) helps us to know our child better. Through this test we can learn about :
- Child’s nature
- Intelligence type
- Interest areas
- Learning style
How is the Multiple Intelligence Test (MIT) different from IQ Test?
If you want to reach your potential then ditch the stifling notion of the classic IQ test and embrace multiple intelligence test !!
IQ measures language, spatial awareness and numerical ability. Therefore, undermines the intelligence of those kids who possess a host of other mental abilities. So, low IQ does not mean low intelligence, just a different intelligence.
MIT on the other hand measures all eight aspects of our intelligence individually besides identifying the learning style and interest areas of the child which can go a long way in the holistic development of the child.
Who can take MIT?
Any student from Class III – Class VI can take this test. This test does not need any preparation and is designed in MCQ format (Multiple Choice Question format) It can be taken online, from the comfort of your home !!
