TESTING FOR CREATIVE TRAITS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS.
BALL, RUBY C.
TESTS ON CREATIVE PERSONALITY WERE STUDIED AND VALIDATED. THE FIVE TESTS CONSIDERED APPROACHED THE PROBLEM OF CREATIVITY MEASUREMENT IN DIFFERING WAYS. TWO WERE CHOSEN FROM PUBLISHED LITERATURE--(1) "SELF-DESCRIPTIVE EXPLORATORY RESEARCH INVENTORY," AND (2) "INCOMPLETE FIGURES TEST." THREE WERE ADAPTED OR DEVISED BY THE INVESTIGATOR--(1) "PERSONALITY COMPLETION TEST," (2) "SPONTANEOUS, DIVERGENT, AND ACADEMIC (SDA)-2," AND (3) "DRAWING-STIMULUS STRATEGY MEASURE." THE TESTING POPULATION REPRESENTED NEARLY 200 STUDENTS IN THE STATE COLLEGES OF CONNECTICUT, ART MAJORS OR ELEMENTARY EDUCATION MAJORS WHO HAD TAKEN COURSES IN ART. THE MOST OBJECTIVE AND DISCRIMINATING INSTRUMENT FOR CREATIVE TRAITS APPEARED TO BE THE "PERSONALITY COMPLETION TEST," A VERBAL STIMULUS TEST INVOLVING SENTENCE COMPLETIONS. (JH)
