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 can be applied immediately in everyday life and work—while creating the foundational knowledge, dispositions, and skills that support lifelong learning. Lectical Assessments, along with our learning model, VCoL+7, are an important part of any adult educator's or coach's toolkit. 

Several LectaTests are focused on skills that are particularly important in leadership—such as collaborative capacity, contextual thinking, complex thinking, decision making, ethics, conceptions of leadership, and self-understanding. Other LectaTests focus on general skills for thinking, learning, and teaching.
