The good news is that although human reasoning and problem solving are highly complex processes—they are not impossible to analyze, measure and improve. Many people think it’s obvious who the best thinkers are in their team, but unfortunately this impression is usually based on long term observation and hindsight. Businesses can’t afford to make those mistakes when error and poor judgments cost money and opportunities. That’s why early assessment of thinking skills can maximize efficiency by determining a person’s capacity to benefit from training or to succeed in their job.
Insight Assessment researchers have studied how people try to understand problems and how they make decisions. Perhaps more importantly we have learned how people make bad judgments often without realizing it.
Insight Assessment’s test instruments are proven tools for measuring high stakes decision making. The core thinking competencies measured by these instruments have been validated as vital to business and civic life by key leaders in the USA. The data derived from INSIGHT instruments is valued by business and government leaders, and educators in 50 states and 60 countries in over 30 languages.
All INSIGHT assessment test items ask vital questions that are set in real world contexts and are calibrated for individuals being assessed. Each INSIGHT assessment uses validated questions that focus on specific types of decisions being made by the individuals being tested.
Assessing thinking is the first step to improve the quality of decision-making in your organization.
