Gibbs, Leonard E.
Informal Logic, v7 n2-3 p137-49 Spr-Fall 1985
Nine studies of teaching critical thinking in universities are reviewed. A table summarizes the methodological features of the nine studies, describing each study's merits and allowing comparison across studies by criterion. A second table summarizes findings and measures used to quantify those findings. Findings are discussed in terms of measures of critical thinking, effectiveness of conventional curricula, effectiveness of curricula designed specifically to teach critical thinking, and factors associated with successful learning by participants. Includes 27 references. (JDD)
