Nixon University which is one of the leading names in online education recently introduced personality assessment tools for their students as part of Nixon University Career Counseling Program. The students at Nixon University will now be able to assess themselves using these personality tools in order to get a clear idea of their strengths and weaknesses.
The management at Nixon University believes that no matter how much counseling is done on any given student, all of it is useless if the student does not agree to it because at the end of the day it is the student who has to make these career choices and step into a career which gives direction to their future life.
“Once we have a clear idea of the student’s personality, character and academic abilities it’s easier to match the right person to the right job,” said the Head of Placements at Nixon University.
Although these new assessment tools are still in the testing phase, it is still partially applicable and the management has started getting in results for them. Some of the tests that are running in the testing phase are as follows:
- Intelligence tests to check personality traits, mental capacity and critical thinking skills.
- Emotional intelligence tests for evaluating emotional competence.
- Ethics test to check the student’s professional values and beliefs.
- Decision- Making tests to gauge the student’s capacity for making decisions in critical situations.
- Stress Management tests to check the student’s ability of keeping calm in stressful situations and handling them effectively.
Nixon University has always been known as an innovator in education. This initiative is simply one of a kind and will be of great help to the students of the University. It will also establish new benchmarks for other universities to follow.
