About the Scheme
A good number of students come from poor and lower class families, who are not only unable to pay their school fees, but also cannot pay for the other necessities like books, uniforms, shoes etc. This gives them an inferiority complex and their personalities do not flower sufficiently. In order to help such students, we have started a scheme known as “ADOPTION SCHEME” under WELFARE SECTION. We solicit help from sympathetic friends to contribute according to their capacity and distribute this money for education purpose only amongst the deserving and needy students.
Since 1979, approximately 17,996 students have benefited under this scheme through about 930 donors.

There is a listing of various psychological tests and related items available with or through manasayan. This list is prepared to keep the size within manageable limits And to give you an idea of the wide variety of inventory we possess or can order for you, and which would offer you a wide choice of instruments for your needs. Almost all the tests here are our proprietory items i.e. either published here or abroad, or distributed here by us for their respective foreign publishers. All tests usually contain several components, and are available in complete sets, or as loose supply of individual components. And one of the test published by manasayan is Differential Aptitude test.
Aptitude testing was considered a comprehensive term for assessment of abilities which would be developed with appropriate tanning. several aptitude test were developed for specific skills. it was felt that a battery of tests given a set of relative scores about the same individual on different abilities and thus providing a more complete picture of him, could be more useful for occupational and educational guidance than an aptitude test to measure a specific skill.
The Differential Aptitude tests were developed to provide an integrated, well standardized procedure for measuring the abilities of boys and girls in junior and senior high school. since it was clear that no practical test battery would encompass meaure of all aptitude, an attempt was made to include teste , which would be useful in many areas and would yield scores which were directly interpretable by informed counselors, and would yield score which were directly interpretable by informed counselors . inherent in this conception was the conviction that the test must prove themselves in actual use to be effective predictors of how well students perform.
The differential Aptitude tests were prepared bY Bennet ,Seashore and Vernon and were published by the psychological corporation first in 1947. the battery of tests was carefully constructed and impressively standardized.
