Base-level critical thinking, attendance, and notetaking differentially predicted performance measures in a large human development course (N = 292). Multiple-regression analyses showed that critical thinking was the strongest predictor of multiple-choice examination performance but that notetaking was the best predictor of total course performance. Group analyses revealed that high- and low-performing students differed significantly on all predictor variables.
