Optional Critical Thinking Survey

posted Feb 18, 2016, 1:17 PM by J. Tirrell   [ updated Feb 18, 2016, 1:18 PM ]

As a student in a course that teaches critical thinking, we invite you to take part in a research study entitled Students' Perceptions of Their Proficiencies in Critical Thinking. If you take part in this study, you will be one of about 200 people to do so. Drs. Cara Cilano and Colleen Reilly are in charge of this study. By doing this study we hope to learn about students’ perceptions of their critical thinking skills early in and end of the current semester. You will be asked to answer an 11-question survey.

Responding to this survey is entirely voluntary. Your decision to participate and the responses you provide are anonymous and will have no bearing on your grade in this course. Even after you begin to respond to the survey, you can elect to end your participation at any time.
