Auther : Dr. Ali H. Ebrahim - Dr. Kalthoum M. Alkandary

     This study aimed to identify the degree of acquisition of the skills of critical thinking among students majoring in Science and Islamic Studies in the College of Education at Kuwait University, as well as the degree of their practice of such skills as: Analysis, Induction, Inference, Evaluation, and Deduction. The total sample of the study was (151) comprising (22) male and (129) female students from both majors for the academic year 2013-2014. The California Critical Thinking Skills 2000 Test was applied as a tool to measure the students' higher level of thinking skills. Results of this study indicated that students from both majors of Science and Islamic Studies have a significant decline in the acquisition of critical thinking skills. The study showed that the GPA of the secondary school is not an accurate indicator of the acquisition of critical thinking skills by students. The study also pointed out that there were statistically significant differences in favor of males (5.28) versus females (4.59) at critical thinking skills (evaluation and deduction) at (0.036).Recommendations of this study addressed the importance of highlighting the significant role of including critical thinking skills within the programs of the students' activities and practices during their schooling years in all levels as well as in college years. Teachers should be encouraged to take training courses that would develop their abilities and skills to incorporate the practices of critical thinking skills within their instruction process.
