What is Imbellus?
Rebecca Kantar, CEO
What we do?
Imbellus builds cognitive assessments that measure how people think, not just what they know.
Why we do it?
Standardized tests have served as gatekeepers to higher education and professional careers for well over 100 years, but they have evolved very little despite the shifting needs of students and employers.
Today’s education system tries to teach mastery of what machines already rule—content knowledge and processing speed—when we need to focus on the more complex dimensions of skills that will remain distinctly human. For that, we need a new era of assessment capable of evaluating deep thinking skills.
With this kind of assessment, schools will be incentivized and empowered to teach in ways that are more real-world relevant and engaging for students. With evolved instruction, we will graduate more students prepared for the 21st century and give them a fair shot at a good life.
