Diagnose Language-Based Thinking Deficits
Ages: 12-0 through 17-11
Testing Time: 40 minutes
While other tests may assess thinking skills by tapping mathematical, spatial, or nonverbal potential, the TOPS 2: Adolescent assesses critical thinking abilities based on the student's language strategies using logic and experience.
Based on the research of Richard Paul, the TOPS 2: Adolescent emphasizes the integrative disposition of critical thinking by focusing on these cognitive processes:
The test is comprised of five subtests (18 written passages) that assess a student's performance of these skills. The subtests require the student to pay careful attention to, process, and think about what they hear and read; think about problems with a purpose in mind; resist the urge to be impulsive; and express answers verbally.
COMPLETE TEST INCLUDES: Examiner's Manual, Reading Passages Book, and 20 Test Forms. (©2007)
