The purpose of this mixed method study is to examine the critical thinking disposition and perceptions of Radiologic Science students through the use of a standardized assessment and journaling exercises. The Radiologic Science student’s critical thinking deposition was assessed using the California Critical Thinking Deposition Inventory to determine the willingness and ability of the individual student to problem solve through use of critical thinking. A series of journaling assignments was the tool used to challenge the student’s abilities to think critically through substantive and meaningful reflection. The quantitative analysis was completed with the data collected using the CCTDI assessment. The qualitative portion was completed using a single-site case study method.
