Abstract
This article examines pencil and paper tests--the dominant mode of assessment in Trinidad and Tobago--and looks at the type of examination questions that would be needed if this type of testing required higher-order thinking. It argues that paper and pencil tests do not always live up to the expectation that persons who are certified are in fact critical, creative thinkers and problem selvers. The article suggests that focused attention should be paid to the development of items that require higher-order thinking
