Critical Thinking Assessment Rubrics

Measure what matters and more.

Critical thinking assessment can be tricky to perform because it encompasses such broad skills. However, we can begin to assess it by breaking it down into more basic components, and then determining criteria you can use with your learners. Start here with these Critical Thinking Assessment Rubrics.

These 6 colourful info-packed rubrics cover some crucial aspects of critical thinking, and are part of the amazing activities we offer in our popular Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion. You’ll find specific criteria for each category within the rubrics that will make an initial critical thinking assessment possible.
