MI Advantage multiple intelligences
MI Advantage™ helps students in grade 8 through to college recognize their unique intellect, boost confidence levels, strengthen all of their intelligences, and explore recommended careers. Founded on Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory, this assessment provides a more rounded view of students by looking at the following types of intelligence: bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, naturalist, spatial and existential. Multiple intelligences theory has been used successfully by thousands of students at schools around the world. Online and fully automated, educators and counselors who use MI Advantage can spend more time helping students and less time trying to figure out a student’s natural gifts.
