Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal

The Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal assesses the individual's capability for critical thinking. Updated in September 2011 the new version builds on the reputation, validity and reliability of the original Watson Glaser, is shorter in length and of can be completed by candidates remotely due to utilising new item bank technology.

Careful, analytical reasoning is an important part of nearly all management roles and is known to play an important part in a large range of occupations.

The Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal has been designed to measure some of these important abilities and since its inception has become a highly respected and widely used instrument in the selection and development of graduates, managers and leaders. It is generally acknowledged to be one of the toughest tests of critical thinking available with strong links to performance in role.

A new version of the test is now available building on the validation and research of the previous version. New items have been created so that there is a larger bank of questions, ensuring that no single form of the test can be copied and reproduced. This new item bank approach will ensure that candidates can be assessed remotely and unsupervised and has reduced the test length to 30 minutes.

Who are the tests for?
The Watson-Glaser is widely used in the selection and appraisal of managers. It is also used for leaders and graduates

  • Selection – graduates, lateral hires & business support
  • Talent Management – identify hidden talent
  • Retention – identify areas for development.
