An interest inventory is a testing instrument designed for the purpose of measuring and evaluating the level of an individual’s interest in, or preference for, a variety of activities; also known as interest test. First designed by Dr. Edward Kellogg Strong Jr. and popularly referred to as the Strong Interest Inventory (SII), the thematic structure and conceptual inspiration was used to create The Brain Checker Engineering Interest Inventory known as Brain Checker Engineering Sorter Test (B.E.S.T) which was designed by Dr. Jignesh Prashnani, PhD, Psychology along with Dr. Ashwin Raje, MA-Clinical Psychology and Ms. Keya Raje, MA-Counseling Psychology. The validation of the Test was done at Professional Learning Institute, Margao, Goa on 194 students and 72 parents over a period of one month to try and measure, assess and rank their engineering preferences suitably after cross comparing their responses against 100 Engineering Specialisations to deduce the list to Suitable 7 recommended specialisations.
