Abstract

Although much has been written about measurement instruments for evaluating critical thinking in nursing, this article describes clinical evaluation strategies for critical thinking. Five methods are discussed: 1) observation of students in practice; 2) questions for critical thinking, including Socratic questioning; 3) conferences; 4) problemsolving strategies; and 5) written assignments. These methods provide a means of evaluating students' critical thinking within the context of clinical practice.
