Critical thinking is about logic and applying rationale to every argument that one might have with themselves.

In today’s world, there are so many distractions, so it is even more important for identifying the critical thinking skill level of an individual.

A critical thinker can easily analyze whether some information being provided to them is true to the core or not.

The Glaser test is usually an examination that lasts not more than 30 minutes and the applicants are asked to attempt 40 questions in total.

There are five different areas where the applicants are tested on and they are inference, assumptions, deductions, evaluation, and interpretation. 

The questions are multiple choice questions and are usually phrased as true or false statements, where the understanding ability of a participant is determined.
