Survey addresses the "dispositional" dimension of critical thinking—as opposed to the "skills" dimension, which is evaluated in the Critical Thinking Skills Test CCTST.
Survey assesses how students feel they approach these seven qualities: As a one-time test to gain understanding of how students view themselves as critical thinkers. Can be combined with demographic surveys to examine the relationship between student attitudes toward critical thinking and student characteristics such as socioeconomic status or major.
Jill Cellars Rogers Center of Inquiry in the Liberal Arts at Wabash College Introduction The ideal critical thinker is habitually inquisitive, well-informed, trustful of reason, open-minded, flexible, fair-minded in evaluation, honest in facing personal biases, prudent in making judgments, willing to reconsider, clear about issues, orderly in complex matters, diligent in seeking relevant information, reasonable in the selection of criteria, focused in inquiry, and persistent in seeking results that are as precise as the subject and the circumstances of inquiry permit.
A companion survey, the California Critical Thinking Skills Test, measures actual critical thinking skills. The survey is designed for use with students in postsecondary settings undergraduate, graduate, and professional and with adults outside of educational environments.
The CCTDI is used for student assessment as well as program evaluation, professional development, and training. The following review provides a summary of several aspects of the CCTDI, including how it is used, how much it costs, what it measures, how it can be used for the purposes of student assessment, and why someone would use it when assessing liberal arts education.
It is a tool that can be used with groups of any size a class, a department, or an entire campus. It is available in paper form or as a web-based survey. Either version takes 20 minutes or less to complete. For those seriously considering using the CCTDI, it is advisable to obtain the specimen kit prior to ordering the surveys and answer sheets.
Because the booklets are separate from the answer forms, they can be used more than once. Booklets and answer forms are shipped to the purchaser, who determines to whom and how the CCTDI will be administered e. Answer forms are then collected from the students and shipped back to Insight Assessment, where they are scanned and scored using a system called CapScore.
Insight Assessment then sends the investigator a data file and a report summarizing the survey results. Online Version To use the online version, an order needs to be placed with Insight Assessment.
The software application is made available to the administrator by Insight Assessment and needs to be set up on a computer or group of computers. For specifics on the application or for a demo version contact Insight Assessment.
The data and reporting of the results are available instantly. The system can also be set up to give each student a critical thinking "dispositions profile" immediately upon completion of the instrument. A computer lab is an ideal setting for administering the online version.
About the CCTDI Inwith sponsorship from the American Philosophical Association, a group of scholars from several disciplines developed a definition of critical thinking that had a skills dimension and a dispositional i.
Building on the scholars' definition regarding the habits of mind of an ideal critical thinker, Peter and Noreen Facione developed and tested the CCTDI as a measure of the dispositional side of critical thinking.
Each respondent can choose from six responses, ranging from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree. The instrument uses seven sub-scales to capture different aspects of the disposition to think critically: For a brief definition of each, visit Insight Assessment.
Examples of survey items are listed below, under the corresponding sub-scale. Analyticity It bothers me when people rely on weak arguments to defend good ideas.
Others look to me to decide when the problem is solved. Systematicity People say I rush into decisions too quickly. If I have to work on a problem, I can put other things out of my mind. My peers call on me to make judgments because I decide things fairly.
Inquisitiveness Studying new things all my life would be wonderful. Learn everything you can, you never know when it could come in handy. Cognitive Maturity Reading is something I avoid, if possible.
Powerful people determine the right answer. The total score indicates whether a person is generally disposed to think critically—whether the individual habitually exhibits the characteristics of an ideal critical thinker. The total score ranges from 70 to Students who score less than are defined as negatively disposed toward critical thinking, students with scores between and are defined as ambivalently disposed, and students with scores above are defined as positively disposed.
In contrast to some of the findings of the survey developers, several researchers have identified concerns about the appropriate number of sub-scales and some of the statistical properties of particular sub-scales. This information can be useful in determining whether individual students or groups of students have the dispositions deemed necessary for a class, at the end of a program, or for entry into a particular professional setting.
For example, in the field of nursing, which has recommended CCTDI scores it may be useful to know a student's disposition toward critical thinking upon entry into a program or prior to his or her entry into a clinical setting.Intravenous (IV) therapy is the fastest route to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body.
