The Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal (WGCTA) contains 80 reading passages presenting problems, statements, arguments, and interpretations, each requiring the application of analytic reasoning skills.
Its five exercises cover Drawing Inferences, Recognizing Assumptions, Argument Evaluation, Deductive Reasoning, and Logical Interpretation.
They are based on scientific methods to test (mostly) cognitive abilities, and typically, KBS students encounter verbal reasoning, numeric reasoning and critical thinking/logic tests as well as personality assessments used to clarify a candidate’s strengths and development needs.
Applicants tend to be sent a link to do a test at home, which is often repeated in person at an assessment centre to be fair to all and ensure that nobody is cheating.
You can find out more about each one of these types in the CR video series in the Magoosh product.
