Free online cognitive profiling test for your child

Postby ChiefKiasu » Fri Sep 06, 2013 11:40 pm

Dear KiasuParents,

KiasuParents.com is partnering with Logicmills to offer a free cognitive profiling test for your children, so that you can understand your child's predilections, character and learning style better.

We are looking for children between Primary 4 to Secondary 2 to take an online cognitive profiling test. This test will allow you and your child to obtain a comprehensive measurement of the socio-psychological abilities of the child, in terms of:
- Being able to adapt to and size up a new environment
- Being able to think ahead
- Being able to respond to new challenges and maximise their chance of success
- Interpersonal skills
- Cultural profiling in terms of preferred environments, values & motivations, and working styles

The test is simple, and can be done any time, and in the comfort of your home. It comprises a short questionaire, followed by the playing of a simple "Blokus"-like board game. By analyzing the responses and the playing style of the participant, the system will evaluate and profile the participant accordingly, against a benchmark of 5,000 previous participants of both children and adults.

Logicmills, who developed the test, has verified the profiling to be very accurate through the testimonies of corporate managers who have put their staff through the tests.

The purpose of our experiment is to establish the cognitive capabilities of children in various groups. We will only need about 25 students per group to get statistical significance regarding the make-up of the cognitive capabilities of each group.

There is no charge for those participating in this experiment. So effectively you will get a free evaluation of your child. Participants will have complete privacy and will not be individually-identifiable. They will be given a generic license code to access the test, and they will be able to get their full profiling results once they complete the session in between 10 to 20 minutes.

If you are interested in participating in this experiment, please complete and submit the online form here. Only registered KiasuParents.com members will be able to apply (Please login to your KiasuParents.com account first).

Please note that the exercise will end in exactly a week's time, by 13 Sep 2013. Any issued license code that is not consumed by then will be invalidated. As the number of free licenses is very limited and given on a first-come-first-served basis, register asap to avoid disappointment.

We hope that you and your child will enjoy the free profiling test that we have worked hard to bring to you! We trust that you will find it very useful too.

Thank you!

Just a quick note: to allow more families to benefit from the profiling test, we will only give 1 license code to the first child registered by each KiasuParent member. We will try to obtain extra codes for those who register all their children, but that is not a guarantee.

We seek your understanding on this.

Thank you.

It has been PMed to you :)

If you check your form submission, you should also be able to see the license, once it has been accepted.

For those who have gotten your license code, please remember:

1) The code is only meant for 1 child, ie. 1 license code per account, and 1 account per child. Please do not "share" the account with yourself or other children as it would corrupt the profiling process.

2) Please use the code for the child you registered for at KiasuParents.com. This is because we will be tagging the child's registered data with the profile results in order to establish the characteristics of each group.

3) During the test, please do not assist the child. The instructions are clear, and there is a video to introduce the child to the game. Leave the child alone to play the game, otherwise you might add bias to the test.

4) There are a total of 5 sessions. Profile results are updated after each session. If your child complete the 5 sessions, the final results will be stable and accurately reflect the cognitive capabilities of your child. Your child can take the sessions consecutively one after another, or come back to it after a day or two. You just need to ensure he/she completes them before 13 September.

We have given away almost a quarter of our free licenses in less than a few hours. Register now before we run out.

It's not immediate, because it is not automated :). You just registered less than 5 mins ago. I have just PMed you the license.

Umm sorry, kinda blur about the info required on the registration page.

When they ask to fill in the id and password, are they referring to our KSP ID and Password?

Name and particulars to be entered should be that of the child doing the test or the parent?
