CREATIVITY AND SCHOOL GRADES, AND I.T.O.C. RESULTS FOR THREE SAMPLES OF COLLEGE STUDENTS.
RISSER, JOHN J.
TWO SERIES OF TESTS WERE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE SIGNIFICANCE AND MEASURABILITY OF CREATIVITY. IN THE FIRST SERIES, THE GROUP TEST OF CREATIVITY DEVELOPED BY RISSER AND METFESSEL WAS GIVEN TO 425 SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS AT ELIOT JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL IN PASADENA, CALIFORNIA. THE CORRELATION BETWEEN THE CREATIVE ABILITIES MEASURED AND THE STUDENTS' SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT WAS SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER THAN THAT BETWEEN THEIR MEASURED IQ'S AND THEIR SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT. IN THE SECOND SERIES, THE INDIVIDUAL TEST OF CREATIVITY DEVELOPED BY RISSER AND METFESSEL WAS GIVEN TO 28 ART STUDENTS AND 21 ENGLISH STUDENTS AT PASADENA CITY COLLEGE WHO HAD BEEN IDENTIFIED AS "CREATIVE" BY THEIR INSTRUCTORS. THE ENGLISH STUDENTS SCORED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER ON TWO OF THE SIX VERBAL TESTS. THE ART STUDENTS SCORED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER ON TWO OF THE PERFORMANCE TESTS. A CONTROL GROUP OF 31 PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS SCORED SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN THE "CREATIVE" STUDENTS ON SEVEN OF THE 12 TESTS. (AD)
