21st century teacher education: Teaching, learning and assessment of critical thinking skills at Sultan Qaboos University

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This study examines the extent to which Sultan Qaboos University students in general and teacher education students in particular have critical thinking skills when they enter the university or develop them after 3 years of study at the university. The findings from CCTST testing indicate that students are not meeting expectations at any level of the educational system. The student test results were then compared to data from a faculty survey about their perceptions of student critical thinking skill attainment. Faculty overestimated students’ critical thinking skills.
