IDENTIFYING AND TEACHING CREATIVITY--DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HIGH AND LOW ABILITY STUDENTS. THE GENERAL COLLEGE STUDIES, UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, VOLUME I, NUMBER 3, 1963-1965.
AMRAM, FRED M.; GIESE, DAVID L.
TO DETERMINE WHETHER STUDENTS OF HIGH AND LOW ABILITY DIFFER IN CREATIVITY, STUDENTS IN GENERAL COLLEGE (GC) SPEECH AND LOGIC CLASSES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA WERE COMPARED WITH SPEECH AND LOGIC STUDENTS IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS (CLA). GC STUDENTS HAVE A MEAN IQ OF 105-110, AND AN AVERAGE HIGH SCHOOL RANK AT THE 25TH PERCENTILE WHILE CLA STUDENTS HAVE A MEAN IQ OF 115-120 AND RANK ABOVE THE 70TH PERCENTILE IN THEIR HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES. GC STUDENTS EARN LOWER SCORES ON THE AMERICAN COLLEGE TESTS. THE MINNESOTA TESTS OF CREATIVE THINKING, ABBREVIATED FORM VII, WERE GIVEN TO BOTH GROUPS. TEST RESULTS INDICATE ONLY ISOLATED DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES WITHIN EACH OF THE COLLEGES. CLA MEN DIFFERED LITTLE FROM GC MEN, WHILE CLA WOMEN'S SCORES WERE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THOSE OF GC WOMEN IN PARTS OF ORIGINALITY, FLEXIBILITY AND ELABORATION FACTORS. GENERALLY, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SCORES OF GC AND CLA STUDENTS IS SMALLER ON THIS TEST OF CREATIVITY THAN ON THE TRADITIONAL TESTS MOST FREQUENTLY USED TO COMPARE THE TWO GROUPS.
