Abstract

The digitalization system that continues to roll has brought changes to the learning system, where face-to-face learning is replaced by an online system. On the one hand, learning experiences to acquire critical thinking (CT) skills as one of the essential skills of the 21st century must also be encouraged. The objective of this study is to assess students’ CT skills in terms of cognitive style by implementing the problem-based e-learning (e-PBL) model in mathematics courses. This study is an evaluative study with an experimental approach, where as many as 28 students as research samples were taken purposively from Mandalika University of Education, Indonesia. A set of instruments was prepared to measure every aspect of CT and cognitive style, including descriptive and statistical data analysis so that the results of the CT assessment were found. In general, the results of the CT evaluation show that e-PBL is effective in improving students’ CT skills, so this is a recommendation to use e-PBL widely and intensively.
