TTU Critical Thinking Initiative

Test Scoring Reports Get Involved Other Institutions

In the Fall of 2000, TTU began to explore and evaluate methods of assessing critical thinking skills as part of a component of performance funding.  This initiative has evolved over the years and includes faculty in both the development of test questions and the scoring of student responses.  We encourage all interested faculty to become involved in these efforts.  Please explore this site and find out how you can get involved.

In the Fall of 2004, TTU received an NSF grant to refine its critical thinking test by working with other institutions across the country. Information about Project CAT can be found on the Project CAT website.
