Critical Thinking Measurement in ICT
Shannon, Li-Jen; Schneider, Solomon; Bennett, Judith F.
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n1 Jan 2010
This study examined the status of critical thinking (CT) and reasoning skills in information communication and technology (ICT) for 190 college students in a higher education system. It analyzed how the students performed in CT, reasoning, and internet copyright and ethical issues. A CT assessment was designed to analyze the CT and reasoning skills. The findings showed that the students were not capable of (a) interpreting the chart and question accordingly; (b) processing problem-solving and proposing the proper solutions for the scenario; (c) composing a proper legal action toward the copyright issues; and (d) recognizing internet ethics to treat data legally. Due to limited resources of CT measurements in ICT fields, this paper might be used as the significant evidence promoting students' CT and reasoning skills in educational systems.
