The Talent Search also offers guidance to gifted students and offers insights into their strengths and weaknesses.
How does ASSET Talent Search benefit gifted students and their families?:
Students with outstanding academic abilities often go unnoticed due to the lack of proper identification programs that helps recognize their skills and the extent of their talent.
Scholastically gifted VII and VIII graders who enrol for the ASSET Talent Search are invited to join other talented peers across India to appear for the Advanced ASSET test. Participating students receive a comprehensive results summary of their performance on the Advanced ASSET Test.
Participating in the ASSET Talent Search offers students and their families:
The experience of taking an Advanced ASSET Test:
Students who have outstanding academic abilities perform exceedingly well on tests designed for their grades. The results are often generic and don’t specify their academic strengths. The Advanced ASSET test has been designed to test their academic strength and cognitive abilities. The knowledge and experience gained by attempting an Advanced ASSET Test is priceless for participants as it aids them and their families on how to further hone their natural talent by finding academic challenges that best suit their skills.
Moreover, attempting an Advanced ASSET test gives VII and VIII graders an opportunity to preview content they will encounter later during their academic journey.
Acknowledgement of their skills:
Every participant receives a certificate of recognition for their participation in the ASSET Talent Search in India. Students scoring in the 95th percentile or higher on the Advanced ASSET Test are declared as ‘ASSET Talent Scholars’ (ATS) and receive special zone-wise recognition, in addition to the ATS certificates.
Students who surpass expectations and score in the 99th percentile on the Advanced ASSET test are honoured as ‘ASSET Talent Scholars Gold’ (ATSG) and receive special zone-wise recognitions, in addition to their certificates.
Who can participate?:
ASSET Talent Search has been developed for students who possess superior scholastic skills and demonstrate outstanding academic abilities.
Students presently enrolled in V, VI, VII and VIII grades who have scored in the 95th percentile or more in either English, Math or Science during the current or previous year’s ASSET tests are eligible to participate.
Non-ASSET schools can nominate their outstanding students to participate in the program. The top 5% students in grades V, VI, VII and VIII who have scored exceedingly well in Math, Science and English, can be nominated for participation. For example, if there are 120 students in class VII, then up to 6 students can be nominated for each of the three subjects.
Schools are required to provide the names and test scores of the nominated students by filling the registration form enclosed with the communication kit and sending scanned copies to email@example.com.
Students enrolled in a Non-ASSET school can register via the Individual Nomination category and can pre-register for the Talent Search by clicking here.
Why be a part of the ASSET Talent Search?:
Students with scholastic talent often go unrecognised due to the lack of identification tools that highlight their intellectual abilities. These students also continuously baffle families and educators who do not understand the extent of their academic abilities and are unable to help them hone their skills through appropriate educational challenges.
ASSET Talent Search has been developed with the objective of bridging this gap by identifying these unique students.
The program is focused on highlighting such students’ academic skills through a highly advanced skill-based multiple-choice questioning technique. Based on test results, ASSET Talent Search offers individual recommendations and appropriate guidance that aids such students and their families on suitable ways to enhance their inherent talent.
