The Watson-Glaser series is the gold standard for measuring and developing critical thinking ability, the foundation of better decision making, problem solving, and career success in the 21st century.
The WG-2 Online consists of:
Profile Report: See the score and some predictive behaviours
Interview Report: Conduct a critical thinking behavioural interview
Development Report: Build a custom learning & development plan to enhance an individual’s skills*To download sample copies of these reports, look under the Product Resources section on the right of this page.
Critical thinking is organised into an easy-to-interpret 3-factor “RED” model:
Assumptions are statements that are implied to be true in the absence of proof. Identifying assumptions helps in discovery of information gaps and enriches views of issues. Assumptions can be unstated or directly stated. The ability to recognise assumptions in presentations, strategies, plans, and ideas is a key element in critical thinking. Being aware of assumptions and directly assessing their appropriateness to the situation helps individuals evaluate the merits of a proposal, policy, or practice.
Arguments are assertions that are intended to persuade someone to believe or act a certain way. Evaluating arguments is the ability to analyse such assertions objectively and accurately. Analysing arguments helps in determining whether to believe them or act accordingly. It includes the ability to overcome a confirmation bias – the tendency to look for and agree with information that confirms prior beliefs. Emotion plays a key role in evaluating arguments as well. A high level of emotion can cloud objectivity and the ability to accurately evaluate arguments.
Drawing conclusions consists of arriving at conclusions that logically follow from the available evidence. It includes evaluating all relevant information before drawing a conclusion, judging the plausibility of different conclusions, selecting the most appropriate conclusion, and avoiding over-generalisation beyond the evidence.
W-G II is an online assessment delivered through our Talent Assessment Platform (TAP). Pricing for online assessments is determined by a sliding scale, based on the quantity purchased. To find out more about our online platform, Click Here.
New UK norms represent a wide variety of professions such as Accountancy, Security Services, Insurance, Police & Prison Services, Sales, Information Technology, Civil Service and Management Consultants.
Parallel forms allow you to test and retest with individuals or groups, indicating whether employees have improved their critical thinking skills following training or instructional programs.
The WG Short Form was constructed using a subset of 16 scenarios and 40 items appearing in the US Watson-Glaser Form A. At half the length of the WGCTA the Short Form may be more practical in some selection situations.
The WG Short offers norms for a variety of occupational groups including lower, middle and upper management applicants, sales and marketing personnel and bank employees. Research comparing the WG Short to the Watson-Glaser Form A confirms that the two versions are statistically equivalent. A table of equivalence between Forms A and S is included in the WGCTA-S Technical Manual.
