Assessment, Accreditation, Admissions

Student success is not guaranteed once letters of acceptance go out. 

Admissions officers have a tough job. Each year they are responsible for identifying the best possible class of incoming students. They need to admit the students who are most likely to succeed in their coursework and to make a successful transition to student life. Wading through a confusing web of test scores, GPAs, recommendations, interviews, essays, etc. to identify promising candidates is an ongoing challenge.

Critical thinking skills are essential for student success

The ability to identify applicants who have the strongest critical thinking skills and the desire to apply those skills should be an essential component of individual admission decisions, placement and advising.

There is probably no more important predictor of college level success than strength of critical thinking skills. Strong reasoning skills and positive thinking habits of mind are vital to academic success in every discipline and major field of study. That’s why colleges and universities depend on  Insight Assessment test instruments for selective admissions, transfer placement and more. Our validated, easy to use critical thinking skills and thinking mindset assessments are essential academic tools worldwide.
