How MCMF is Different?
Most of the available personality and occupational assessment tools are developed and tested outside India. While they are reliable and validated assessment tools, they still do not represent indian samples. It is widely agreed by the academicians and practitioners alike that assessment tools developed in another culture/context should not be blindly used for a different sample. They have to fit the sample under study. The appropriateness and suitability of the tool to the sample is the key. Given this, MCMF is a tool completely developed in India keeping the indian samples in mind.
The key features of MCMF are:
- Developed in India to fit the Indian culture and context
- Statistically tested and validated on a large sample
- MCMF is available in regional languages namely Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi
