Candidates are able to practice their critical thinking skills via an iPhone Think-O-Meter App. Here you can think through scenarios and test your ability to separate reliable facts from assumptions, focus on the relevant information, and think critically to get the right answer.
The published practice tests for both Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal UK & Rust Advanced Numerical Reasoning Appraisal are available to holders of the British Psychological Society's Test User, Occupational: Ability (Level A) qualification.
Candidates who are about to take either test and require information on accessing practice tests should contact their test administrator or organisation to which they are applying.
Pearson TalentLens does, however, offer an online Critical Thinking questionnaire which is available to all and can help develop your critical thinking ability. The questionnaire contains development tips which will help you hone your critical thinking by focusing on the skills needed at each stage of this three-fold strategy.
- Clarifying your understanding of a subject
- Analysing and interpreting the information you have gathered to ascertain the facts, claims and arguments, as well as to highlight assumptions, errors and inconsistencies.
- Deciding what to do or believe by evaluating the evidence and judging its credibility
The questionnaire can be purchased via the Peter Honey e-shop pay-as-you-go online questionnaires link
