Tshwane University of Technology Emalahleni Campus Academic Assessment Unit

The Academic Assessment Centre is a unit within the Directorate of Student Development and Support (SDS). The following assessment services are available at SDS units at all learning sites:



Potential Assessment is a selection mechanism that may be used in the admissions process in addition to Grade 12 results, auditions, portfolios, etc.

Cognitive potential to succeed in the programme applied for is evaluated prior to admission. Spatial, abstract, verbal and numerical reasoning and reading comprehension are evaluated.



The Student Profiling process is based on Seidman’s (2005) formula for student success:

Retention = Early Identification + (Early + Intensive + Continuous) Interventions.

It focuses on the Early Identification of a student at risk of being unsuccessful in his/her studies at TUT, either due to inadequate academic skills, underdeveloped emotional intelligence, career orientation or lack of English language proficiency. By profiling the first-time entering students at the beginning of their first semester at TUT, a starting point can be determined for the provision of relevant interventions that are likely to enhance the student’s chances of graduating.  After completing the evaluation, students and all relevant lecturers are provided with comprehensive reports during a feedback session. The Student Profiling process has little value if students do not complete the recommended interventions.

NEETHLING BRAIN INSTRUMENT PROFILE​An NBI profile is designed to help one develop strategies to sustain creativity and positive thinking in one’s personal and professional life, as well as apply creative solutions. By understanding one’s brain profile, a person can optimise his/her academic, social and personal functioning.

The test is a short assessment with an in-depth report. The NBI assessment can be completed on its own or together with the risk profiling evaluation. Having a brain profile report of a class, could assist a lecturer to better understand how his or her students will learn best and could assist each student to optimise their study skills. It can also be a valuable tool for personal growth and awareness.
