Validity

Watson-Glaser II has been extensively validated to provide the most accurate picture available of critical thinkers. W-G scores correlate with:

  • Cognitive ability (e.g., r = .60 with WAIS-IV fluid reasoning composite; n = 49)
  • Occupational and educational attainment (e.g., r = .28 with job level; n = 432; r = .33 with education level; n = 581)
  • Job performance (e.g., r = .28 with supervisory ratings of core critical thinking behaviors; n = 68)
  • Attitudes or personality preferences related to critical thinking performance (e.g., for the correlation between Watson-Glaser II Evaluate Arguments and Myers-Briggs Feeling, r = -.27, n = 60)
