Critical Thinking in Everyday Life

This tool is part of a larger evaluation system used to measure the life skills of decision making, critical thinking, problem solving, goal setting, communication, and leadership. The life skills (i.e., decision making, critical thinking, communication, problem solving, and goal setting) selected for this overall measure were thought to be the most commonly identified life skills emphasized in 4-H youth development curricula and program activities. Critical thinking is defined as thinking that evaluates reasons and brings thought and actions in line with evaluations. This survey will assesses youth's critical thinking ability by examining the frequency of use of the following skills that are needed to think critically: reasoning, inquiry, analysis/information processing, flexibility, and evaluation.

I think this a great tool to use to evaluate impulse control as well as critical thinking, I would use this tool in my practice as a behavioral health specialist. I think the word "factual" or "gaining facts" instead of just information would be helpful to specify understanding of valid information. Information is everwhere, whether or not it's factual makes a difference. It is user friendly especially for the age range of 12-18.
