Learning Readiness

schoolEzer Mizion’s Advocacy Unit is happy to announce its new service: offering learning-readiness evaluations for a token fee, in Jerusalem and Bnei Brak.

A learning-readiness test is a specific, focused assessment, suited to the particular case and objective. It is conducted using up-to-date tools to evaluate capabilities, putting an emphasis on factoring in background information and personal impression made by the subject.
