The Mawhiba Scale for Giftedness and Creativity aims at detecting students who are gifted and creative in science, technology, and language, as well as other aspects of creativity. It also helps maintain fairness and objectivity in the selection of creative and gifted students, and their enrollment in suitable programs.
NCA spokesperson, Dr. Ibrahim Al-Rasheed, explained that the Mawhiba Scale can be administered to a large number of students by raising the community's awareness of the traits of gifted and creative individuals and the significance of discovering them. The Scale also contributes to scientific research, in addition to the role it plays in enriching Arabic scientific literature on the subject matter.
Dr. Ibrahim added that the Mawhiba Scale, which is offered by Qiyas in collaboration with King Abdulaziz and His Companions Foundation for Giftedness and Creativity, is available to male and female students enrolled in public education schools across the Kingdom who are in grades 3, 6, or 9. Students can be nominated by their schools or parents/guardians. They can also nominate themselves. The nomination process involves filling out the registration form on the Mawhiba website then registering via the Qiyas website. Mawhiba Scale tests have been scheduled for Friday and Saturday the 12th and 13th of Jumada Al-Oula 1440H at 38 male test centers and 42 female test centers across the Kingdom.
Al-Rasheed also clarified that nominated students go through a 3-step process. First, applicants complete the nomination application to take the giftedness and creativity test, which is step 2, and the third and final step is the personal traits scale.
