  • Educators can use SkillMetric to determine where students stand in regard to critical thinking skills so they can modify instruction to meet students’ needs.

  • College and university administrators can use SkillMetric to identify departments and programs that contribute most to the growth of students’ critical thinking skills.

  • Graduating seniors can use SkillMetric to obtain credible, third-party evidence (e.g., badges) of their levels of critical thinking to show potential employers.

  • Finally, employers can use SkillMetric’s objective measure of critical thinking in addition to GPAs to identify recent graduates who warrant interviews for high-value jobs.
