Thinking skills is defined as having two sets of assessable skills: problem solving and critical thinking. Problem Solving requires reasoning using numerical skills, whilst Critical Thinking requires reasoning using everyday written language.
CS Education further breaks this down into different types of questions so that they are easier to understand. There are many categories of questions that can be included in Thinking Skills. Some examples are given below.
General Ability is a subject that has always been taught at CS Education as it helps students develop new and unconventional approaches for solving problems, along with exposing them to new patterns that will further their brain development. The core skills required to solve these questions are what we call ‘Thinking Skills.’ Unlike other core subjects such as Maths and English, where there is a defined curriculum and set methodology for solving problems, General Ability does not have a set curriculum that is studied in school, so its elements remain a mystery to many.
