NSW Year 11 students completing NESA critical thinking test

The 2017 trial of the NESA online Critical Thinking test started with around 1000 students sitting the test on the first day. The test assesses skills in Logical Reasoning, Qualitative Analytical Reasoning and Quantitative Analytical Reasoning. 

Students will receive a report on their critical thinking skills.

NESA ran an initial trial in 2016, with 2500 students participating. The initial trial demonstrated that the test is valid and reliable. It is expected that more than 7000 students will sit this year’s test before the trial concludes on Friday 11 August.

NESA will be seeking feedback from participating students and teachers to inform future research into online assessment.
