Critical Thinking Basic helps you to improve your thought process in order to be more effective.

The app helps you to assess and improve the quality of a thought: it helps you to evaluate the quality of an idea, a decision, an opinion, a presentation, an article, etc., through nine Universal Standards of Thinking.

The nine Universal Standards of Thinking are:
1. Clarity
2. Precision
3. Accuracy
4. Relevance
5. Significance
6. Depth
7. Breadth
8. Logic
9. Fairness

For each standard you will find:
• Questions and information to help you evaluate the quality of the thought for the standard;
• The possibility of rating it, in a scale from one to five; and
• The chance to take notes that are relevant to you.

At any moment you can generate an html document that contains all the information you entered so far, which you can use for yourself or to share with others.

If you want to improve the effectiveness of the reasoning behind an important work that you have on hand, Critical Thinking Basic can help you. You can also use the app simply to learn more about Critical Thinking.
