Wheebox Critical Thinking Test:Critical thinking can be defined as the ability to consider a range of information derived from many different sources, to process this information in a creative and logical manner, challenging it, analyzing it and arriving at considered conclusions which can be defended and justified. It is widely regarded as the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment.
The Wheebox Critical Thinking test is designed to measure an individual's ability to take one's thinking apart systematically, to analyze each part and to arrive at conclusions which are impartial, well informed and objective.
The test reflects scores on the following:
1.Assumption: Assumptions are statements that are implied to be true in the absence of proof. Recognizing assumptions allows individuals to distinguish fact from opinion and sift out the relevance of the facts that are presented. Identifying assumptions also helps to discover information gaps.
2.Inference: An inference is a step of the mind, an intellectual act by which one concludes that something is true in light of something else's being true or seeming to be true. Having strong inference skills enables individuals to make decisions in a logical step-by step manner.
3.Conclusion: This deals with arriving at conclusions that logically follow from the evidence available to us. People who possess this skill do not inappropriately generalize beyond the evidence.
