Why LectaTests?

Lectica's adult assessments

Lectica's mission is to help the world think better by supporting optimal learning—the kind of learning that builds skills while supporting increasingly effective, complex, and agile thought and action. All of our assessments are designed to help individuals and groups build skills for learning continuously from everyday experience.

LectaTests are focused on skills that are essential for navigating life and work—skills like collaborative capacity, contextual thinking, perspective coordination, conflict resolution, and leadership decision-making. To give you a quick idea of the kinds of skills we target, spend a few moments with the self-mastery skill map below.

Maps like this one inform the development of LectaTests and powerful learning tools called micro-VCoLs. Micro-VCoLs leverage the brain's native learning mechanisms to build skills and knowledge efficiently and effectively. This is the way the brain is designed to learn.
