The study of thinking capacity has been a concern of researchers who are interested to explore how learning influenced by thinking processes. Psychological science attempts to explain human’s thinking skills using various tests and research methods. This paper reports on a pilot study of “Fluid Intelligence Test” (FIT) as an aptitude test to evaluate fluid intelligence prior to students’ participation in Problem-based Learning (PBL) via ICT within global learning community. The questions include evaluating creative/critical thinking, logical thinking and reasoning skills. FIT was designed to explore if students’ Higher Order Thinking (HOT) skills in these aspects were enhanced after their involvement in technology-enhanced PBL. Data analysis revealed that FIT was effective to discriminate students with various aptitude levels. Recommendation was made to conduct more research activities with more adaptation of validated items to include evaluating students’ fluid intelligence before implementing curriculum to introduce conceptual/procedural knowledge.
