This study examined creative mind model of assessment with technology (CREMMAT). CREMMAT is a novel evaluation type that, more efficiently and more inclusively, assesses students development and achievement in knowledge, ability and skill. It is a digital vista for Nigerian secondary school students which would put them ahead of their counterparts in the global village. Quasi experimental design was used to actualize the purpose of this research.2000 students were selected through a multi-stage sampling procedure from 85 Senior Secondary Schools in Anambra State.208 students (C = 104, E = 104) were randomly sampled from the selected 2000 for a possible effect-experiment on the studied intelligences with technology (Bodily-Kinaesthetic, Logical-Mathematics, Musical and Verbal-Linguistic Intels). The researchers developed two instruments termed creative mind model of assessment with technology (CREMMAT) and training for performance assessment (TPA). Observations and tests were also used. The result showed that there was significant mean score difference between participants TPA pre-test and post-test (F (1, 205) = 953.56; p =.0005; patial eta2 =.244). The output revealed that pre-existing ability had no impact on the treatment result of the students (p=.34preTPA). Also, it was found that gender had no part to play in the performance on the studied Intels. However, female students showed greater active participation in verbal-linguistic and musical Intels, while the male students showed greater active participation in logical-mathematical Intel. Gender difference did not show in bodily-kinaesthetic Intel. The researchers recommend that government would do better not to constrain teachers to use only subject-matter and analogue methods of assessment in the classrooms. Also the researchers recommend that government include CREMMAT in the assessment of students in order to enhance other digital intelligences inherent in Nigerian students.
