Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth (EQ-i Youth™)

Educational | Emotional Intelligence | Academic Functioning

Emotional intelligence has been identified as a critical skill in the 21st century and especially as we continue progressing through the 4th Industrial Revolution, how we interact is as important as what we can do. The first ever youth assessment to be based on the globally renowned EQ-i 2.0 model, the EQ-i Youth measures the level of emotional and social functioning in  children and adolescents. How children and adolescents perceive and express themselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way are assessed in this world-class assessment developed with the South African context in mind. It is a useful tool that can be used to identify a student’s strengths and development areas, in order to help that student develop the skills needed for personal, scholastic, and social success.

SOUTH AFRICAN RESEARCH

MHS, in partnership with JVR Psychometrics, have developed the EQ-i Youth in the South African context. After assessing over 1,000 children and adolescents across provinces and a number of school quartiles, South African norms were developed and the commercial version of this world-class assessment finalised. We also welcome the opportunity to partner with clients who are interested in conducting research in their practices and organisations.
