    Abstract/Description

    It is suggested that a more specific emphasis should be placed in undergraduate
    education on the explicit development of the ability to make evaluative
    judgements. This higher level cognitive ability is highlighted as the foundation
    for much sound and successful personal and professional development throughout
    education, and in lifelong development. Yet it seldom seems to receive the
    explicit attention which is given in curricula in higher education to analysis and
    creativity. The paper includes several examples of activities which have been used
    and judged effective in developing the ability to make evaluative judgements,
    often at an early stage in undergraduate courses.
