Excellence starts with enrolling the best students and educating them to become the best professionals, artists, performers, arts administrators, curators and technicians possible. Deans of Fine and Performing Arts rely on Insight Assessment’s range of testing tools to identify the applicants with the strongest critical thinking skills and the desire to apply those skills. These candidates have outstanding potential to learn and to achieve to the maximum their talent permits.

Training for critical thinking has become an increasing focus in fine arts and performing arts education. Using Insight Assessment critical thinking measurement tools, faculty are quickly and easily documenting the critical thinking of prospective or current undergraduate and graduate students. As reasoning skills are integrated into course work, the data gathered with these tools are valuable for admissions purposes, 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.

Our cost-effective 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. can be normed to other programs like yours.
