Critical thinking is about people's ability to think rationally about a topic. It is specifically about their ability to analyze information, whether in textual, numerical, or graphical form, and make logical connections between ideas, drawing reliable and confident conclusions.
The current test assesses a candidate's critical thinking skills across three general parts and five measurement areas. These were adapted based on a well-researched model as a common standard framework for measuring critical thinking: the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal (WGCTA) measure.
This part includes questions designed to assess a candidate's ability to analyze statements, understand what is being said, evaluate whether or not the information offered is valid, and whether or not evidence has been provided to back it up.
This part includes questions designed to assess a candidate's ability to analyze arguments and decide on their weakness or strength. It involves thoroughly examining all relevant facts rather than seeking information confirming a preferred point of view.
This part includes questions designed to assess a candidate's ability to analyze information, reach a logical, reliable, or sound conclusion (or inference), and determine whether or not the conclusions (or inferences) may be confidently drawn.
The test is timed and in a multiple-choice format.
