A Detailed Analysis of Sixth Grade Creativity Test Data.
Denny, David A.
Research objectives were: (1) to establish norm data from a battery of creativity tests, (2) to obtain frequency of response scores for the originality sub-test (Guilford) to compare with scorer judgment type "remote" scores, (3) to perform an item analysis, (4) to analyze and report on the relationship of creativity, socio-economic status, I.Q., and sex with validity obtained from a peer nomination and interests and activity inventory; and (5) to analyze construct validity by factor analysis. Approximately 900 children were pre-post tested on a battery of tests. Conclusions were: (1) the battery needs revision, (2) the remote judgment method of scoring the Consequence Test for originality is not accurate, (3) acceptable internal consistency was obtained, (4) concurrent validity was acceptable, (5) a satisfactory degree of construct validity existed, and (6) the Gestalt Redefinition Test, the Alternate Uses Test, the Seeing Problems Test, and the Consequences Test were reliable and valid. Further studies need to determine the effect of the test situation and scoring procedures upon creativity scores. (Author/EK)
