Validity evidence for using a general critical thinking test to measure nursing students' critical thinking


Validity evidence for using a general critical thinking test to measure nursing students' critical thinking



Holistic Nursing Practice 15(4): 65-74



ISSN/ISBN: 0887-9311

PMID: 12120497

This study examined validity evidence for using a general test of critical-thinking skills and dispositions to measure nursing students' critical-thinking abilities. Content evidence indicated strong support for the theoretical framework underlying the test but less support for the way in which the critical-thinking constructs were specifically measured. Scores related to critical-thinking skills demonstrated significant but low correlations with grade point averages, were moderately correlated with SAT scores, and were uncorrelated with scores related to critical-thinking dispositions. The evidence suggests that nursing programs may need to reconsider how critical thinking should be measured and evaluated.
