ABSTRACT

This study aims to demonstrate the importance of information literacy instructions by showing effects of information literacy skills on critical thinking dispositions among high school students. We collected 761 survey responses from high school students and conducted multiple regression analysis to examine the relationships between the two variables. The findings show that (1) students’ information search skills affect their pursuit of truth, openness, inquiring mind, and objectivity, (2) the information analytic skills influence the levels of pursuit of truth, openness, and objectivity, (3) the information presentation and delivery skills affect the levels of inquiring mind, organization, and self-trust, and, (4) the information evaluation skills influence the levels of pursuit of truth, openness, inquiring mind, organization, objectivity, and self-trust. However, students’ synthesis and application skills of students did not affect their critical thinking dispositions. To sum up, we observed the influence of information literacy skills on critical thinking dispositions. The results of this study provide foundations for maintaining and developing information literacy instructions in school libraries.
