A commitment to support critical thinking research
Insight Assessment is committed to offering researchers, NGOs and community service agencies reduced pricing through our internal grant program. We recognize the importance of ongoing independent research projects which will contribute to knowledge about how to improve human reasoning and decision making.
We have provided subsidizing grants for customers conducting studies to improve communities, non-profits rehabilitating job candidates, educators of disadvantaged children, project directors studying the effects of peace initiatives and academics studying effective teaching and learning approaches.
Insight Assessment’s internal grant program enables us to provide applicants with our world class instruments to measure the core critical thinking skills and mindset attributes, in many languages, well below cost. All applications are reviewed to ensure that the researcher has training in the protection of human subjects, and that studies are well designed with the potential to contribute to knowledge. We also encourage applications for projects focusing on improvements in teaching and learning, community service projects, and non-profit professional development.

The senior research associates of Insight Assessment have engaged in the empirical and conceptual analysis of reasoning for decades. They have demonstrated through their work that critical thinking can be defined, learned, taught, and accurately measured.
Insight Assessment critical thinking skills tests measure core reasoning skills such as analysis, inference and evaluation as well as inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning. The specific instrument to select will depend on the educational level of the people in your sample.
We welcome the researchers and doctoral dissertation students around the world who have joined us in the work of developing and evaluating methods to train high stakes reasoning and decision making.
