STUDENT CREATIVITY, INTELLIGENCE, ACHIEVEMENT, AND TEACHER CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR.
STEVENS, JOHN C.; AND OTHERS
TO DETERMINE WHETHER STUDENTS WHO PERCEIVE THEIR TEACHERS DIFFERENTLY ALSO DIFFER IN CREATIVITY, A SAMPLE OF 197 STUDENTS (82 MALES AND 115 FEMALES) WAS RANDOMLY SELECTED FROM ONE HIGH SCHOOL. EACH STUDENT WAS GIVEN THREE TESTS OF COGNITIVE FACTORS--THE UTILITY TEST (LISTING DIFFERENT USES FOR A BRICK AND A WOODEN PENCIL), THE APPARATUS TEST (SUGGESTING TWO IMPROVEMENTS FOR EACH OF 10 COMMON ITEMS), AND THE PLOT TITLES TEST (COMPOSING DIFFERENT TITLES FOR FOUR STORY PLOTS)--AS WELL AS THE PUPIL OBSERVATION SURVEY (POS) (ON WHICH THE STUDENT RATED HIS ENGLISH TEACHER ON AMOUNT OF CONTROL, STIMULATION, AMIABILITY, AND KNOWLEDGEABILITY). RESULTS OF FACTOR ANALYSES OF THESE MEASURES AND CORRELATIONS WITH ACHIEVEMENT AND INTELLIGENCE DATA FROM SCHOOL FILES WERE--(1) THE THREE CREATIVITY TESTS YIELDED FOUR FACTORS CONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS ANALYSES (COMMON PLOT TITLES, CLEVER PLOT TITLES, DRASTIC-MINOR APPARATUS, AND UTILITY), (2) AS IN EARLIER STUDIES, RELATIONSHIPS OF POS FACTORS WITH STUDENT CREATIVITY AND WITH ACHIEVEMENT RANGED BETWEEN LOW NEGATIVE AND LOW POSITIVE, (3) PERCEPTIONS OF THE TEACHER AS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXHIBITING DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP WERE SIGNIFICANTLY CORRELATED WITH THE THREE MEASURES OF DIVERGENT THINKING, AND (4) PERCEPTIONS OF THE TEACHER AS FRIENDLY, CHEERFUL, ADMIRED, AND STUDENT-CENTERED IN INSTRUCTION WERE EACH NEGATIVELY RELATED TO ONE OF THE MEASURES OF CREATIVITY. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (NEW YORK, 1967). (LC)
