Training for critical thinking has become an increasing focus in human performance, health and physical education. Educational strength and excellence starts with enrolling the best students and educating them to become the best graduates and job candidates possible. These candidates have outstanding potential to learn and to achieve to the maximum their talent permits.
Deans of Physical Education, Health and Human Performance use Insight Assessment offers world class testing tools to identify potential candidates in their applicant pool who have the strongest critical thinking skills and the desire to apply those skills. Faculty can also quickly and easily document the critical thinking of prospective or current undergraduate and graduate students.
As critical thinking reasoning skills are incorporated into course work, the data gathered with these tools are not only valuable for admissions purposes; they provide reliable documentation for educational research, accreditation, learning outcomes assessment and program evaluation. Insight Assessment offers a comprehensive selection of critical test instruments that are calibrated to measure critical thinking thinking skills and dispositions of specific test takers. These test instruments include:
- The California Critical Thinking Skills Test (CCTST) is being used worldwide to provide valid, objective and reliable measures of the core reasoning and critical thinking skill of undergraduate and graduate students. The CCTST has been proven to predict strength in critical thinking in authentic problem situations.
- The California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory (CCTDI) measures test takers’ motivation to apply critical thinking skills in decision making and problem solving. The CCTDI is calibrated for use with the general adult population including workers and working professionals at all levels, and for students in grades 10 and above.
- The Test of Everyday Reasoning (TER): Widely used in 2 year colleges, the TER is designed to measure the critical thinking skills of test takers in secondary schools, the first two years of post secondary education or of adults of all ages in the general public.
Insight Assessment tests of critical thinking skills rely on case-based scenarios to provide objective, valid and reliable measures of these essential problem solving and decision making skills. Our testing tools are cost-effective and can be normed to comparable undergraduate or graduate programs. Assessment solutions are available through on-line testing or paper-and-pencil testing.
