26th Annual Student Research Conference

Problem Solving at Truman State University
Elizabeth M. Gallagher*, Victor O. Oribhabor, and Lauren M. Dassow
Dr. Scott Alberts, Faculty Mentor

Truman State Universitys vision states Truman will demonstrate its public liberal arts and science mission by developing educated citizens needed to protect our democracy and offer creative solutions to state, national and global problems by: demonstrating students practical reasoning through improved critical thinking and problem solving. This study is to determine whether or not Truman students are developing problem-solving skills through the courses and opportunities offered at Truman. Problem-solving as a skill is very important especially in this time because it prepares students by offering real world experience. This translates to a higher likelihood of producing students who can play an integral role in society.
