CT Data Collection Instrument

Here you can find the data collection instrument measuring Critical Thinking skills and dispositions employed for the evaluation of the Critical Thinking Blended Apprenticeships Curricula designed and developed within the Think4Jobs Project. The instrument comprises of two parts. The first part includes the shortened version of the Critical Thinking Self-Assessment Scale (CTSAS) for HE students composed of 60 items, while the second part includes the Student-Educator Negotiated Critical Thinking Dispositions Scale (SENCTDS) composed of 21 items. For data collection purposes, both scales were translated in the local languages of the Partners engaged in the Think4Jobs Project, namely Greek, German, Portuguese, Lithuanian and Romanian. You can download the translated versions of the instrument by clicking at each language on the table below (Table 1). Our fourth Intellectual output describes the scoring of the instrument as well as the validation process.
