Exclusive Webinar with Diane Halpern

Employers list critical thinking as one of the most highly valued skills they want from current and prospective employees (Hart Research Associates, 2015). Critical thinking requires understanding complex material at a deep level and appropriate use of thinking skills. The challenge is how to teach and assess critical thinking. The Halpern Critical Thinking Assessment (HCTA) is an authentic, reliable and valid measure to assess critical thinking. You are invited to a free webinar with Diane F. Halpern, Ph.D., award-winning author of numerous textbooks on critical thinking and the HCTA published by SCHUHFRIED. Don't miss your chance to get the latest update on the state of critical thinking research and assessment!

A whole bunch of new norms 

Large samples are the key to meaningful interpretation of test scores. Thus it is important for SCHUHFRIED to collect und prepare current data.
The Vienna Test System has been updated with new norms of Indian truck drivers, as well as French and German traffic psychology related clientele. There are also new norms available of elderly persons and teenagers in Germany, as well as of professional drivers and candidates for becoming professional drivers in Slovakia and Poland. New norms of motorsport racers and teenagers in Germany were integrated in the Vienna Test System as well. 

Not the norms you are looking for? We can draw up norms specifically for you.
