EXPERIMENTAL SCORING MANUALS FOR MINNESOTA TESTS OF CREATIVE THINKING AND WRITING.
YAMAMOTO, KAORU
THIS MANUAL DESCRIBES PROPOSED SCORING PROCEDURES FOR THE MINNESOTA TEST OF CREATIVE THINKING AND WRITING. TEST FORMS FOR SIX VERBAL TASKS AND THREE NONVERBAL TASKS ARE PRESENTED. FOR MOST TASKS, THIS SCORING MANUAL HAS EXTRACTED FROM THE TEST PROTOCOLS FOUR SCORES TO REPRESENT FOUR ABILITIES OF CREATIVE THINKING-- FLUENCY, FLEXIBILITY, ORIGINALITY, AND ELABORATION. THE DETAILED SCORING INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDE EXPLANATIONS OF SCORING PROCEDURES A AND SCORED SAMPLE RESPONSES. DATA ON INTERSCORER RELIABILITIES, TEST-RETEST RELIABILITY, INTERCORRELATIONS AMONG SCORES, VALIDITY, NORMS, AND CORRELATIONS WITH SCORES FROM EARLIER MEASURES, ARE BASED ON SUBJECTS IN GRADE 5, GRADE 10, AND COLLEGE, AND ARE PRESENTED IN 20 TABLES. A FIRST REVISED EDITION OF A SCORING MANUAL FOR IMAGINATIVE STORIES, GRADES 3 THROUGH 6, IS PRESENTED. FOR EACH OF TWO FORMS, SUBJECTS WRITE A STORY ON ONE TOPIC CHOSEN FROM THE LIST OF 10 TOPICS. THE SCORING SCHEME EMPLOYS FIVE SUBDIVISIONS UNDER THESE SIX CATEGORIES--ORGANIZATION, SENSITIVITY, ORIGINALITY, IMAGINATION, PSYCHOLOGICAL INSIGHT, AND RICHNESS. A SUPPLEMENTARY SCORING GUIDE EVALUATES ORIGINALITY (NINE SUBDIVISIONS) AND INTEREST (NINE SUBDIVISIONS). FOR BOTH SCORING SCHEMES ON IMAGINATIVE STORIES, SCORING PROCEDURES ARE DESCRIBED AND EXAMPLES OF SCORED RESPONSES ARE INCLUDED. PRELIMINARY NORMS AND SOME DATA ON RELIABILITY OF SCORING ARE PRESENTED. A REFERENCE LIST OF 17 ITEMS IS INCLUDED. (JA)
