An instrument was constructed to measure the dimensions of evaluating and integrating in chemistry reasoning. When administered to 300 college chemistry students from a premier independent school in Singapore, it was found to contain items with good facility and discrimination indices, and to have good internal consistency. Evaluating and integrating are strongly correlated with each other. Significant positive correlations are also found between these dimensions and academic performance, intelligence, use of learning strategies, and educational experience, though many of the correlations are numerically small. The instrument needs to be developed further to investigate the complex relationships among these variables.
