In feedback on previous reports you may have got comments like ‘Be more critical’ or ‘Needs more critical analysis’. This may be frustrating, as comments such as these tell you what is missing, but not necessarily what critical thinking actually is or how to go about including more of it in your reports. Given this kind of feedback, it’s understandable to see ‘critical thinking’ as some mysterious, secret process that you need to access in order to gain better marks. However, thinking critically is something we do every day, not just in an academic context.
