On day one of the clinical posting pre-test was given for both the groups. On the eight day of the clinical posting the experimental group was introduced to reflective learning followed by group discussion and using simulated scenario. The post test was carried out on the on twenty eight day for both the groups. Results revealed there was difference in critical thinking ability scores among the experimental and control group subjects (t=32.729).also there was a significant positive correlation between the pre-test scores of reflective learning ability (r =0.910) and critical thinking ability(r=0.937).
