The idea is that some types of learning require more cognitive processing that others, but also have more generalized benefits. In Bloom's taxonomy, for example, skills involving analysis, evaluation and synthesis (creation of
  2. 2. new knowledge) are thought to be of a higher order, requiring different learning and teaching methods, than the learning of facts and concepts. Higher order thinking involves the learning of complex judgmental skills such as critical thinking and problem solving. Higher order thinking is more difficult to learn or teach but also more valuable because such skills are more likely to be useable in novel situations (i.e., situations other than those in which the skill was learned). As for assessing critical thinking skills in student thinking, first we must understand exactly what we are assessing. Consider the following intellectual abilities and dispositions • Thinking independently • Developing insight into egocentricity or sociocentricity • Exercising fair-mindedness • Exploring thoughts underlying feelings and feelings underlying thoughts • Developing intellectual humility and suspending judgment • Developing intellectual courage • Developing intellectual good faith or integrity • Developing intellectual perseverance • Developing confidence in reason • Refining generalizations and avoiding oversimplifications • Comparing analogous situations: transferring insights to new contexts • Developing one's perspective: creating or exploring beliefs, arguments, or theories • Clarifying issues, conclusions, or beliefs • Clarifying and analyzing the meanings of words or phrases • Developing criteria for evaluation: clarifying values and standards • Evaluating the credibility of sources of information • Questioning deeply: raising and pursuing root or significant questions • Analyzing or evaluating arguments, interpretations, beliefs, or theories • Generating or assessing solutions • Analyzing or evaluating actions or policies • Reading critically: clarifying or critiquing texts • Listening critically: the art of silent dialogue • Making interdisciplinary connections • Practicing Socratic discussion: clarifying and questioning beliefs, theories, or perspectives • Reasoning dialogically: comparing perspectives, interpretations, or theories • Reasoning dialectically: evaluating perspectives, interpretations, or theories • Comparing and contrasting ideals with actual practice • Thinking precisely about thinking: using critical vocabulary • Noting significant similarities and differences • Examining or evaluating assumptions • Distinguishing relevant from irrelevant facts • Making plausible inferences, predictions, or interpretations • Evaluating evidence and alleged facts • Recognizing contradictions • Exploring implications and consequences
