Abstract

This study to describe the critical thinking skills of master students who are high school / high school / MA teachers being studied. This type of research is a descriptive study with a qualitative approach. Data was collected from the results of critical thinking skills tests and interviews. Furthermore, the data collected were analyzed based on indicators of critical thinking capacity determined by researchers which included interpretation, analysis, evaluation, inference and explanation. The subjects of this study were 2 people who were considered potential researchers to have critical thinking skills. This can be seen when attending lectures and observing learning in the classroom. Based on the results of the analysis of the results of interviews and interview results subject 1 has the capacity to think critically better than on subject 2. Subject 1 can achieve five indicators of capacity for critical thinking, while subject 2 only on 3 indicators: interpretation, analysis and evaluation. On the inference and explanation indicators, subjects 2 are not fulfilled. This is because subject 2 only looks at solving problems from one angle without paying attention to other perspectives, which in the end will be able to draw some conclusions.
