Bangalore, Friday, July 20, 2018: KNOLSKAPE, an end-to-end learning and assessment platform for accelerated employee development, unveils Kognitix, the next-gen neuroscience-based Games suite for cognitive assessments. This new inclusion into KNOLSKAPE’s Virtual Assessment solutions is a fun and an engaging way to hire talent as well as manage and assess the existing workforce without compromising on the robustness of traditional assessments.
Leading researchers in the field of neuroscience and cognitive psychology have time and again established the link between cognitive abilities & high-performance on the job. Cognitive abilities refer to the capacity to perform higher mental processes, like reasoning, thinking, learning, problem-solving, paying attention, etc. And in the age of Digital BLUR™ where digitization and digitalization are challenging the traditional way of accomplishing tasks in a rigid manner, it is imperative for the fluid workforce to stimulate their cognitive skills. The games under the Kognitix assessment suite assess a host of key cognitive abilities & traits that are critical to steer past the digital age, like Risk Appetite, Mental Agility, Attention, Speed, Response Inhibition, Cognitive Flexibility, Memory, Problem Solving & Decision Making, Planning, etc.
