Applied Critical Thinking for Lifelong Learning and Adaptability (draft 8-31-10)

Appendix A includes a definition of critical thinking that was developed and approved in 2003 by the UHCL Faculty Senate:

"The mastery of higher order thinking skills including quantitative and qualifying analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of information, argumentation, problem solving, and creativity."
