Critical Thinking

Pearson TalentLens offers an online Critical Thinking questionnaire which is available to purchase through the Peter Honey e-shop in order to 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 the three-fold critical thinking 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

Practice your critical thinking skills

Candidates are able to practise their critical thinking skills via the 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.

Candidates can also complete a practice critical thinking test and receive feedback based on their results.
