The CCTST is often used to measure college students’ ability to apply their critical thinking skills. 

The California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory CCTDI is specifically designed to measure the disposition to engage problems and make decisions using critical thinking.  There are seven scales on the CCTDI: Truthseeking, Open-mindedness,  Analyticity, Systematicity, Confidence in Reasoning, Inquisitiveness and Maturity of Judgment.  Each scale score describes an aspect of the overall disposition toward using one’s critical thinking to form judgments about what to believe or what to do. People may be positively, ambivalently, or negatively disposed on each of seven aspects of the overall disposition toward critical thinking.

In educational settings the CCTDI has been used to gather information about job and program applicants, to inform academic advising and personnel training programs, and in projects such as learning outcomes assessment, program evaluation, accreditation self-studies and psychological research.
