GARCIA DUQUE, Carlos Emilio. Superior thinking abilitie' evaluation: A look to the evaluation in the classroom, in the natural science' field. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.2, pp.146-158. ISSN 1794-4449.

This paper, some ideas about the nature of evaIn this paper, I advance some claims about the nature of evaluation in natural sciences and the importance of understanding the role of error in the long and difficult road that leads us to postulate scientific theories that are bolder and better. I take this metaphor to the field of teaching in general and to that of epistemology, in particular, and I try to dispel some misunderstandings on the nature of truth and its role as a regulatory ideal for science, from Popper's perspective. Lastly, I give some recommendations to apply the results of this analysis to the evaluation of abilities of higher order thinking in the practice of teaching in college.

Keywords : evaluation; higher order thinking abilities; falsificationist epistemology; Popper.
