Creative Growth Curves of University Students.
The purpose of the study was to develop a sequence of growth curves of creative productivity. The development of these curves resulted from the investigation of the interrelationships of the variables of creative productivity, college classification, academic potential, sex and perceived anxiety at the university level. The following battery of psychometric tests was given to 233 academically below average and average university students: (1) The American College Testing Program; (2) the IPAT Anxiety Scale Questionnaire; and (3) four of Guilford's tests of divergent production or thinking, specifically, alternate uses, associational fluency, word fluency and consequences. Results tended to support the positions of other researchers and writers, that present university environments do not promote or inhibit creative growth. The study also suggested that anxiety and creative productivity are not necessarily related. (TL)
