A psychometric is a psychological measurement. It’s obtained by performing a range of psychometric tests. These tests seek to measure one’s knowledge, abilities, skills, educational achievement and personality traits.

Davis said that the Magazine would be distributed free to various institutions in the country and readers across the world.

“The first edition of the magazine was an online edition; the second edition was first to go into print, while the third edition is already out.

“As a serious magazine, copies of the production are distributed free of charge to the academia, presidency, corporate entities, donor agencies, diplomatic circle, government ministries and academic regulatory bodies,” he said.

“As of today, there are only five psychometricians in Nigeria. Psychometrics has been approved for tertiary institutions in the country, while effort was ongoing to introduce psychometrics in secondary schools,” he said.

Davis said every student undertaking psychometrics in the country is entitled to a scholarship and other incentives, adding graduating students could access support from its Students’ Enterprise Fund.

He announced the organisation’s readiness to partner with the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Oyo State in training its members on psychometrics.

Davis said that a portal known as Ripsnorters, aimed at bringing people from different spheres of life together, would be launched in September.

He said that the Ripsnorters platform would have 16 communities, ranging from health, Genius Magazine, Scholars Digest, Give Away, Employment and Sportsvantage, to mention a few.

According to him, one of the most important platforms of Ripsnorters would be the employment platform where graduates can submit their curriculum vitae (CVs) and get connected to employers.

Davis said the service would be free, and that they intend to collaborate with some media houses on that aspect.

Also, Mr Jacob Igo, the IPC Deputy Director, said that the centre was a strategic research organisation dedicated to research, teaching and product development, in both pure as well as applied psychological assessment.

Igo said that IPC was the only centre in Nigeria facilitating the study of psychometrics in the nation’s tertiary institutions.

He said that the centre currently have no fewer than 100 schools and over 100,000 students studying the course.
