Why measure critical thinking?

Human reasoning and problem solving are highly complex processes, but not impossible to analyze, measure and improve. A measure of critical thinking that describes an individual's comparative strength in critical thinking is a valuable aid in determining a person's capacity to benefit from training or to succeed in their job. Today, educational programs and workplace training programs are being required to demonstrate that they are effectively improving critical thinking skills. Individual measures of critical thinking ability (analysis, inference, evaluation, inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning) provide valuable information about potential hires and guidance as to where to dedicate programs of improvement in workers and students. For further information about why it is important to measure critical thinking, read Critical Thinking What It Is And Why It Counts by Insight Assessment senior researcher, Dr. Peter Facione.
