The HUMAT Test
In the HUMAT Test students are required to answer 60 multiple-choice questions with four response options in 120 minutes.
The test is composed of two sections:
- Scientific thinking
- Academic literacy/Critical Thinking
|1. Scientific thinking (30 questions)|
|2. Academic literacy/Critical Thinking (30 questions)|
|Critical Thinking skills e.g. analysis, evaluation, inference, deductive skills, and inductive skills|
|Local expeditious reading, e.g. scanning and searching for specific details|
|Global expeditious reading, e.g. skimming for gist, searching for key ideas|
|Word- and sentence-level processes, e.g. word recognition, meaning of a preposition|
Section 2, Academic Literacy, includes items that assess the candidate’s ability to understand and use information presented in a n academic text. These reading passages are selected on the basis that they exhibit the textual characteristics of quasi-scientific research papers, but crucially without the expectation that the candidate will have a deep knowledge or understanding of the topic of the text.
