The International Measurement of Thinking
Insight Assessment is committed to the global advancement of critical thinking.
Since 1994 Insight Assessment critical thinking test instruments have been widely used by universities, hospitals, businesses, government and military agencies, researchers and K-12 schools throughout the world.
International and Multicultural Capabilities
As part of Insight Assessment’s ongoing effort to provide critical thinking measurement globally, we have developed our online tools to support a complete multiple language test taker experience. Our clients benefit from our ability to provide language flexibility in the assessment instruments and in the test taker interface (TTI).
- We specialize in high quality culturally-appropriate translations of our copyright-protected, research-based tools. Insight Assessment researchers work with professional translators and with native speakers to develop valid and reliable translations. Translations undergo rigorous review and validation in the field.
- Authorized translations are currently available for global use in more than twenty five languages. Additional translations can be made available by special request.
- We also provide independent language flexibility in the test taker interface (TTI). The test taker can select from a variety of languages on the interface to assure they understand navigation and test instructions. It is important to us and our customers to only assess the individual’s thinking skills and attitudes, not their ESL abilities.
- Test-taker reports can be delivered in multiple languages. Contact us to discuss your specific needs.
- Our multicultural capabilities go beyond the basic language to include many country-specific variants, date formatting, number formatting, image selection, symbol selection and color selection. Cultural sensitivity, not literal translations are critical in true thinking assessments.
- Some of the many languages Insight Assessment instruments have been translated into include: Arabic, Chinese-Simplified, Chinese-Traditional, Dutch, English, Farsi, Finnish, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese. A partial list of our translations of a specific test instrument can be accessed from that assessment’s webpage.

Unfortunately at this time our client services demands do not permit us to maintain trained staff in all our translations at all times. We request that you communicate in English to our California office staff to ensure that they can efficiently provide the information you need. We apologize for this inconvenience.
