International Diagnostic & Admissions Test
The International Diagnostic and Admissions Test (IDAT) is revolutionising schools admissions and diagnostics for beginning students. As the world becomes more international and students are global citizens, it is less and less likely that a student will complete all of his/her schooling in one learning environment. With students and families searching for the best learning opportunities for their students as the move about as global citizens, it becomes increasingly difficult for schools to select students which fit within their schools and for schools to know what students already know, who they are and how to best meet their learning needs. The educators and students of the world need the IDAT.
