Product Details

Thousands of organizations and schools use Watson-Glaser to hire great managers, develop high-potential employees, and admit students into challenging programs.

Benefits

  • Use this assessment to reveal good decision-making, judgment and problem solving, openness to new experience, and practical intelligence.
  • Improve decision making and accurately identify top performers.
  • Scores are based on our “RED” critical thinking model: Recognize Assumptions, Evaluate Arguments, Draw Conclusions.

Features

Watson-Glaser II has been extensively validated to provide the most accurate picture available of critical thinkers. W-G scores correlate with:

  • Cognitive ability (e.g., r = .60 with WAIS-IV fluid reasoning composite; n = 49).
  • Occupational and educational attainment (e.g., r = .28 with job level; n = 432; r = .33 with education level; n = 581).
  • Job performance (e.g., r = .28 with supervisory ratings of core critical thinking behaviors; n = 68).
  • Attitudes or personality preferences related to critical thinking performance (e.g., for the correlation between Watson-Glaser II Evaluate Arguments and Myers-Briggs Feeling, r = -.27, n = 60).
