The Deloitte critical thinking test is a more complicated form of a verbal reasoning test. This test is provided by Pearson TalentLens, and is also known as the Watson Glaser test.
In this test you are examined against five components of critical thinking:
- Drawing inferences - Ability to draw conclusions from facts.
- Recognising assumptions - Ability to determine whether a statement is justifiable based on a given assumption.
- Deductive reasoning - Weigh up information and decide whether the conclusion is warranted.
- Logical interpretation - Ability to understand the weighting of different arguments on a particular question or issue.
- Argument evaluation - Ability to distinguish between strong and weak arguments.
The timing is different in this test to the tests you may be used to, with 30 minutes to answer 40 questions. Given the complexity of the questions, this time frame will challenge you to work quickly but carefully through the test. Our pack contains two 40 item tests, plus additional questions for each section of the test, and the same time allocation per question.
The inference section of the test looks like a true, false, cannot say test, but it contains five answer options instead of three: true, probably true, inadequate data, probably false, and false. This pack will show you how to pick the right option.
This Deloitte critical thinking practice pack is designed to give you an all round critical thinking preparation. With our specially designed Watson Glaser style questions, study guides and video tutorials all aimed at improving your skills.
