Product Reviews Write a review for this product
"Robert Ennis is regarded as one of the leading researchers in the field of critical thinking (cf. McPeck, 1981). Jason Millman is a Cornell statistician who specializes in test design.
"The development of the Cornell Tests involved extensive discussion, revision, and more discussion of each item by a team of experts in the project....Both forms of the Cornell Tests are technically sound."" - R. E. Orton, Ph.D., Test Critiques, Vol. I
"The Cornell Tests still provide probably the best models of what can be done to test critical thinking using multiple-choice questions. Their joint manual is also an excellent model of what such a manual should provide in the way of evidence and cautionary advise.
Experience suggests that the Cornell Tests also make excellent teaching materials (students find it very instructive to discuss the items and argue about the correct response), and it may well be that any well designed test of critical thinking should also aspire to pass this test."" - Alec Fisher & Michael Scriven, Authors Of Critical Thinking: Its Definition And Assessment
