Comprehensive Critical Thinking Course
About the Critical Thinking Course
Critical Thinking Appraisal is a challenging test administered by companies worldwide, and most frequently by law firms, for the test’s ability to measure critical predictors for future success in roles which require an individual to demonstrate clarity when dealing with multiple perspectives, making vital distinctions between fact and assumption.
The Tests deal with 5 main categories:
- Evalutating Arguments
- Evaluating Assumptions
- Evaluating Deductions
- Evaluating Inferences
- Interpreting Information
Each category effectively measures a number of dimensions of the candidate’s critical thinking ability, and as such is designed to be very challenging by using questions which will confuse and mislead the unprepared.
Candidates can overcome these challenges with the correct preparation.

Foundations of Critical Thinking
Critical thinking embodies a disciplined, systematic approach to actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to derive sound conclusions. This intellectual process hinges on several key components, including analysis, evaluation, inference, explanation, and self-regulation. Contrary to logical thinking, which revolves around logical reasoning and objective assessment, creative thinking involves the generation of original ideas and innovative solutions through imaginative processes.
