David M. Schwartz, Ph.D., ABPdN's insight:

How do you determine the level of critical thinking in your students? How do we get our students to think more critically? Bloom's Critical Thinking Questions to use in Class provides the answers to these questions and the strategies for developing higher-order critical thinking skills.
