IFEHE National Creativity Aptitude Test :
** Research on ‘executive success’ indicates that problem solving skills is perhaps the single most important factor in the success of individuals and organizations.
** The willingness and ability to work hard is a necessary condition for success, it is however not a sufficient one.
** An organization can perform reasonably well doing things the way the best organizations do, however this can propel the organization to, at best, a number two position.
** The leadership position shall belong to organizations that do better than themselves.
** That is what makes an IBM, Intel, Motorola, Google……..
** Clearly, a good technician can apply the known, well established rules and processes to a situation.
** It is the hallmark of a genius who can find better solutions to existing problems, or in the words of Kenichi Ohmae, develop the ‘Art of Strategic Thinking’.
** An excellent strategy has an element of novelty, surprise and speed. This calls for creative thinking.
** Most good education creates conformists. We test the students on our lectures.
** They learn to procrastinate, cram at the last moment and get good grades. (Stephen Covey)
** They tend to believe that these quick-fix, short-cut methods are a recipe for success in life.
** Clearly life does not work this way. To perform well, one has to be consistent and do the tasks when they need to be done.
** Also, you can do reasonably well by what everybody else can do.
** Excellence however will come from doing the task better than the others through unique and innovative approaches.
** That creativity can be enhanced is well supported by research.
** However, it is a skill and skills are learnt by drill.
** We believe that once the creative ideas are allowed to flow, the students will find their own sources and applications and practice on their own.
Why National Creativity Aptitude Test :
** The NCAT is designed to sensitize the students to the domain of creative thinking and motivate them to read, learn and practice the same.
** We also wish to establish that there is no known correlation between memory, logical abilities, linguistic talent and creativity.
** NCAT may throw up a set of students who don’t seem to be the front-runners in the curricular subjects as creative geniuses and motivate them to sharpen their talent.
** We invite you to participate in this test.
** This Olympiad is designed to assess a child’s creative abilities and his/her achievement motivation.
** We believe that this Olympiad will unearth hidden talents and encourage children who may have felt discouraged, to participate in the learning process more willingly and meaningfully with a renewed sense of self-belief and self-confidence.
** This assessment would naturally lead to the child’s inclination to improve upon the same and search for resources in that direction.
** Given an appropriate environment this will lead to enhanced creativity and achievement motivation.
The Outcome :
** The NCAT will assess the creativity quotient of a student and his/her level of achievement motivation.
** By participating in this Test, the student shall get sensitized to the importance of these factors and their role in shaping one’s future.
** Once so oriented, the student shall seek out resources to develop creative thinking and enhance achievement motivation.
** Edward De Beno and David Mc Clleland have conclusively proved that both creativity and achievement motivation can be significantly enhanced by appropriate interventions.
** The starting point clearly is an assessment.
** The primary objectives of this test are – one, to sensitize the student and two, to appeal to his /her competitive spirit to make him/her an achiever.
