Testing for Critical Thinking: A Review of the Resources. Rational Thinking Reports Number 2.
Stewart, Bruce L.
Tests for assessing critical thinking skills or abilities are reviewed in order to: (1) compare various measures and provide a critical review of each instrument; (2) encourage researchers to refine them; and (3) identify problems in measuring critical thinking by analyzing weaknesses in the tests. The publication is divided into two sections: a general discussion of the similarities and differences among the tests; and a review of each test discussed in the text, as well as a number of others not specifically mentioned. Information included as part of each test review consists of: test title, author, year of publication, and most recent edition; test description; sample test item; reliability and validity information; availability; comments; references to additional sources of information; and references to specific test citations.
