Fifty-two Caucasian and 51 African American college students completed the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal and the Inventory of Learning Processes. Analysis of variance indicated that Caucasian students had significantly higher mean scores on the total critical thinking score and on four subtest scores of critical thinking. There were no significant differences between groups on the learning style inventory. (Author/DB)
