The CAT instrument is a unique tool designed to assess and promote the improvement of critical thinking and real-world problem solving skills. Most of the questions require short answer essay responses, and a detailed scoring guide helps ensure good scoring reliability. The CAT instrument is scored by the institution's own faculty using the detailed scoring guide. During the scoring process faculty are able to see their students' weaknesses and understand areas that need improvement. Faculty are encouraged to use the CAT instrument as a model for developing authentic assessments and learning activities in their own discipline that improve students' critical thinking and real-world problem solving skills. These features help close the loop in assessment and quality improvement.

Dispositional Hope Scale [22] assesses a global trait based hope score for individuals above 15 years old. The scale is in 4-point Likert-type scale ranging from Definitely False to Definitely True. There are twelve items in the scale distributed as follows: pathways subscale (4 items), agentic thinking subscale (4 items) and four negative statements as fillers that aren’t related to hope.

According to Snyder’s (1995, 2002) point of view, hope includes three components: (a) goals that have sufficient value to an individual and require a certain amount of effort to achieve, and (b) Pathways thinking, which refers to the reasonable Pathways that are designed by the individual to reach his or her goals. In addition, when there are obstacles blocking one of the Pathways the individual is able to create alternative Pathways to achieve the goals: (c) Agency thinking, a motivational factor related to hope, which refers to the individual’s perception of his or her own ability to utilise Pathways and strategies to achieve goals

The EVC scale was developed based on the Expectancy-Value model to understand motivational factors. This brief 10-item scale is designed to be a rapid measure reflecting student's perceptions of the extent they think they can be successful and the extent that they think a task is worthwhile. This scale allows differentiation between three separate motivational factors (expectancy, value, and cost). Additional research on the cost factor has been done, and a cost scale was developed to contribute to research on the Expectancy-Value Model. There are four subscales in the cost scale: task effort cost, outside effort cost, loss of valued alternatives cost, and emotional cost. This 19-item scale can be found in the appendix: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cedpsych.2015.03.002
