Critical thinking testing and assessment the purpose of assessment in instruction is improvement the purpose of assessing instruction for critical thinking is improving the teaching of discipline based thinking (historical, biological, sociological, mathematical thinking. Context critical-thinking skills require the radiographer to analyze, evaluate and synthesize situations to determine a course of action most beneficial to the patient objective for radiography educators, it is important to understand how critical-thinking skills are acquired during the educational process for each student to reach his or her maximum potential. Purposeenabling students to develop critical thinking skills is one of the key aims of higher education and in preparing student radiographers for the future, there are increasing demands on educators to teach critical thinking skills to facilitate reflective, evidence-based practice and inter-professional working.
Teaching critical thinking skills to fourth grade students identified as gifted and talented critical thinking testing and assessment effect of a model for critical thinking on student achievement in primary source document analysis and interpretation, argumentative reasoning, critical thinking dispositions and history content in a. 1 define critical thinking and problem solving 2 discuss the importance of critical thinking and problem solving in the radiologic sciences 3 describe the role of critical thinking in clinical, ethical, and technical decision making 4 apply the steps involved in problem solving. Critical-thinking and problem-solving strategies chapter 4 critical-thinking and problem-solving strategies tracy herrmann, med all designed to evaluate students’ critical-thinking skills students may be asked to create products of learning or demonstrate learning through a portfolio or self-evaluation steps in critical thinking.
The purpose of this study was originally to investigate the relationship among radiographers critical thinking skills on the dimensions of assessment and evaluation, general self-efficacy, radiographer self-efficacy and clinical competence.
Research questions framed three overriding themes including 1) perceived definition of and skills associated with critical thinking 2) effectiveness and utilization of teaching strategies for the development of critical thinking and 3) appropriateness and utilization of specific assessment measures for documenting critical thinking development.

Purpose enabling students to develop critical thinking skills is one of the key aims of higher education and in preparing student radiographers for the future, there are increasing demands on educators to teach critical thinking skills to facilitate reflective, evidence-based practice and inter-professional working. Thus, the challenge for radiography educators is to construct a curriculum that acknowledges the continued need for students to gain technical competency whilst attending to the university imperative that students develop those critical and reflective thinking skills traditionally associated with a “higher education”.
Critical thinking is listed as one of the 12 critical cross-field outcomes, but research in critical thinking in a radiography context in south africa is lacking, making it valid to question the ability of these students to achieve this skill. Problem-solving abilities of radiography students at a south african university background developing the problem-solving skills of student radiographers is imperative for encouraging critical thinking and allowing them to work efficiently in an era of rapidly advancing technology. Developing critical thinking skills is a key aim of higher education and is important in preparing student radiographers for their future careers in clinical practice.
