Quantitative Ability Learning Levels (Engineering Graduates) - 2011/2012
The Quantitative Ability Learning Levels-Engineering Graduates, Annual Report-2012 is based on objective assessment (AMCAT) data of 55,000 engineering graduates who took AMCAT Quantitative Ability, a competency-based standardized assessment of quantitative aptitude developed by Aspiring Minds. This is by far the most comprehensive analysis of quantitative skills of engineers in India. The report provides in-depth input on skill gaps, areas where training should be focused and how to make pedagogic changes to the education system to impart better mathematical skills to engineering graduates in India.
Key insights from the report:
- Over 30% engineers do not have basic quantitative skills as required in day-to-day life and entry-level engineering jobs.
- Less than 40% engineers can perform 'problem solving' by cross application of concepts.
- 40-50% of engineering graduates cannot even solve basic-level problems involving very simple ratio balancing.
- Fewer than 30% engineers can apply engineering mathematics concepts.
