Assessing Critical Thinking
How do you do this? It occurred to me today that although I encourage critical thinking, I don't explicitly assess it on a rubric. This seems like a great oversight on my part, but then thinking about it, what would the criteria be and, even more importantly, how would it be levelled? My initial idea is to have a a matrix such as:
-does not give evaluative comments / ask probing questions (no evidence)
-is starting to give evaluative comments / ask probing questions (beginning)
-regularly gives evaluative comments / asks probing questions (competent)
-does, & encourages others to, give evaluative comments / ask probing questions (advanced)
This is very rough and off the top of my head. What do you think? Anyone got any examples they are willing to share?
