School In Mumbai Uses Fingerprint Technique To Analyse Their Students Skills
Schools in Mumbai use Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligences Testing (DMIT) technique to read the student's fingerprint patterns to analyse their learning ability, aptitude and skills.
It is a computer-generated assessment fingerprint pattern test, which determines the child's learning styles and intelligence potential.
Rizvi Springfield School, (SSC and CBSE) Bandra recently conducted the test. VIBGYOR High School, Goregaon conducted the test in 2015. Kalyan's Arya Gurukul had also organised a workshop on 'mid-brain activation'
This Mumbai school is reading the lines of children's fingerprints which can activate their 'mid-brain'. Nonetheless, the school has left the consent on parents, whether their kids should take this test or not. It allegedly opens the occult reality of the brain, which basically helps in reading the brain's potential and capability. After their brain patterns are analysed, students are given the homeopathy consultation and career counselling.
"There are codes on each line on our fingers. When we feed the codes into the software, we generate a report on the inborn intelligence, learning styles , creativity and emotional quotient of the student, " said homeopath and DMIT consultant and analyst Dr Trupti Barchha in an HT report.
"Some of our students have taken the DMIT, their parents told us that it helped them to focus on their strengths," said Shim Matthews, Principal of VIBGYOR High School, Goregaon. "But we have not offered it as I think it still needs a lot of scientific research."
"We were approached by DMIT consultants a couple of years ago but we weren't convinced by it," said Tejal Dave, counselling psychologist and head of human resource development department, Gundecha Education Academy, Kandivli.
He further added "There is no research and background on fingerprint analysis. We advise aptitude and personality tests to our parents."
"There are a lot of such tests in the market and parents are confused over their authenticity. The government needs to come up with a strict regulation so that only scientifically backed assessments can be carried out," said Dr Samir Dalwai, president of the Indian Academy of Paediatricians (IAP) and developmental paediatrician, New Horizons Development Centre.
