Hone critical thinking skills for you and your students

Critical thinking (CT) is a deeply misunderstood cognitive skill set. Faculty often do not know exactly what it involves—which means they can't adequately assess their students' ability to do it.

Educators first have to recognize the kinds of material to which critical thinking can be applied. They also have to know how to develop proper tests that fairly and accurately measure student performance and produce relevant outcomes in a preset time frame.

Educators who want a clear understanding of critical thinking and ways to evaluate student achievement should consider watching How Can I Assess My Students' Critical Thinking Skills with Objective Items?—the 20-Minute Mentor video available for purchase from Magna Publications.

Linda B. Nilson, Ph.D., founding director of the Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation at Clemson University, leads an energetic, dynamic exploration to help educators assess discipline-relevant student learning outcomes that involve critical thinking.

The video explains how to assess most critical thinking skills using an assortment of objective items, such as true/false, matching, multiple choice, and multiple true/false tests. General guidelines for writing such items and the critical thinking skills that objective items cannot assess are also covered.

You get step-by-step instruction for designing objective items to assess particular critical thinking skills for a wide range of disciplines.

After only 20 minutes, educators will walk away with a strong foundation for skillfully and competently designing critical thinking assessment items. Purchase your video today.
