Critical thinking is one of the vital cross-disciplinary learning outcome around which high quality Honors Programs are organized. Regardless of the theme of the program, teaching for thinking is a common denominator among honors faculty and academically successful students. At this level teaching for critical thinking demands and deserves the best measures of students' critical thinking to demonstrate student attainment and educational effectiveness.

Honors deans and directors use the critical thinking tests and services provided by Insight Assessment to validate the educational effectiveness of their programs.
