METFESSEL, NEWTON S.
THIS DOCUMENT EXTENSIVELY DESCRIBES THE PRELIMINARY PROGRESS OF A PROJECT TO IDENTIFY THE ATTITUDINAL AND CREATIVITY FACTORS WHICH AFFECT THE MOTIVATION OF CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS (MEXICAN-AMERICANS, PARTICULARLY). THE PROJECT ASSUMES THAT AN AWARENESS OF THE MANIFESTATIONS OF A STUDENT'S CREATIVITY CAN GUIDE TEACHERS IN PREDICTING HIS ACHIEVEMENT AND IN DEVELOPING TECHNIQUES TO MOTIVATE HIM. TO IDENTIFY THESE MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS, THE PROJECT PERSONNEL ADMINISTERED THE INDIVIDUAL TEST OF CREATIVITY (ITOC), THE INVENTORY OF SELF-APPRAISAL (ISA), AND MEANING OF WORDS INVENTORY (MOWI), THE GROUP TEST OF CREATIVITY, AND THE INVENTORY OF ATTITUDES ON FAMILY LIFE AND CHILDREN. THE COMBINED RESULTS OF THE ITOC, ISA, AND MOWI WERE FOUND TO MOST EFFECTIVELY PREDICT STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT. THE ITOC WAS ESPECIALLY SUPERIOR TO CONVENTIONAL TEST INSTRUMENTS. ONE SECTION OF THIS REPORT APPLIES THE FINDINGS OF THE PROJECT TO TEACHING AND COUNSELING SITUATIONS, AND INCLUDES CLASSROOM APPLICATIONS FOR 26 CORRELATES OF CREATIVE BEHAVIOR. BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND DISCUSSIONS OF PRIOR RESEARCH ARE INCLUDED IN THIS SECTION. ADDITIONAL SECTIONS LIST NON-FEDERALLY-FINANCED PERSONNEL AND THE STUDENTS TESTED. A SAMPLE OF EACH TEST IS INCLUDED WITH THE REPORT.
