We’re offering the SAQ because it incorporates Kathy Kolbe’s latest work on identifying conative strengths in kids.

For those who already have a Kolbe Y index result it remains available, is still a great way for kids to better understand themselves, and remains valid.

What does the Student Aptitude Quiz measure?

Students’ Authentic Abilities – their bottom-line conative strength. Students receive their MO, as well as a description for each Authentic Ability – and tons of tips and tricks.

How long does it take?

About 15 minutes.

Is the conative part of the Student Aptitude Quiz the same as the Kolbe Y™ Index?

It is similar, and both were developed by Kathy Kolbe, but they are not the same. The Student Aptitude Quiz is validated for students middle school and up. Also, the Student Aptitude Quiz can be used by older students, people in college for example, where the Kolbe Y may not be appropriate. The Kolbe Y Index was for children with at least a 4th grade reading level through 18 years old.
