International Psychometrics Centre (IPCentre) Ibadan, Oyo State continued its reward for academic excellence scheme on Friday 9th of December when the management of the institute visited The Polytechnic, Ibadan to reward Oluwatomisin Easter Adesuyi of the Department Of Estate Management and Mary Adenisola Sebiotimo of the Quantity Surveying Department for their academic brilliance after scoring the highest mark in the Psychometrics’ studies.

The deputy Rector, Mrs. Abiodun A. Olubamiwa who represented the Rector, Prof. (Engr,) Kazeem A. Adebiyi during the presentation thanked the management of IPCentre, especially the Chairman governing council, Otunba Abimbola Davis for coming up with a scholarship scheme to appreciate and encourage the students taking the course.

“This is value added, it means not only will the students pass, but they have something to look forward to as compensation for their effort, hence I’m commending IPC because I have never witnessed or observed this level of response to good academic performance”, said Mrs. Olubamiwa.

Otunba Davis in his remarks said the scholarship was a fulfillment of the initial set goal by the institution which is to encourage any student that emerges best in the Psychometrics studies across all institutions taking the course in Nigeria.

“International Psychometric Centre’s primary focus is on the Tertiary Education sub-sector of the Nigeria Education Sector where it designs and integrates detailed psychometric studies curricula as separate General Studies Courses into the existing benchmark minimum academic standards for all classes of Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria”, said the Ibadan high Chief.

He added that “International Psychometric Centre is a Strategic Research Network dedicated to research, teaching and product development in both pure and applied psychological assessment, setting up to research on cutting-edge developments in the theory and practice of psychological assessment with emphasis on the online environment, with vision is to impart practical knowledge of psychometrics in different disciplines”.

Otunba Davis, however, promised to assist the Student Union Government of the Polytechnic Ibadan in gathering funds to renovate its SUG building located within the campus from his friends and well-wishers, promising to visit the building to evaluate the cost to refurbish it.

The SUG President, Comrade Oloyede Joshua, on behalf of the students thanked the management of IPCentre for introducing the online course to the schools’ curricular because of its positive impact in making students realize what and where they’re good at, which is a good component in making the right career choice.

He, however, thanked the IPC boss for associating with the plight of the students while assuring him of good cooperation from the student’s community in supporting the course.
