Other information

Other Information of Note:

I would be interested in having a standardized test of critical thinking skills administered at the beginning and end of a large second-year course, to act as controls with respect to students in our second-year service course in critical thinking, which typically has about 400 students. An ideal design would compare gains not just from beginning to end of the term, but gains two years later. If you have a feasible suggestion of how to do so, I’d love to hear from you.
