Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the relationship between critical thinking skills and self-efficacy of the students in the University of Jordan. The Critical Thinking skills test and the self-efficacy scale were used to collect data from a sample consisting of (417) students (120 male, 297 females), who were selected by a random cluster method from students in the fourth year of the humanitarian, scientific and health colleges. The results showed that the level of critical thinking skills was medium, and the level of self-efficacy was high. Results showed a statistically significant positive relationship at (α = 0.05) between the critical thinking skills and self-efficacy. There were no statistical differences in critical thinking skills and self-efficacy attributed to gender. While there were significant differences according to the type of college variable in favor of the scientific colleges. The study recommended developing critical thinking skills.
